Hotel rooms are beautifully decorated, easy parking, great food, and above all excellent service. The manager makes it. He's the most cheerful chap and there's nothing that's too much trouble. Loved our stay - would go back

Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was nice and cosy and felt more like an Inn then a hotel. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The waiting staff were very helpful and attentive and the food was good - I highly recommend the cream of tomato starter! Looking forward to going back... More

We went to the Ship Hotel last weekend for a quick break to get away from London. The manager absolutely made our stay with his very attentive service. We got stuck in traffic on the way up and we're racing to get there before 9pm when the kitchen closes, however missed it and came almost 15min late to find that... More

It is clear on arrival that a lot of care and attention has been paid to the styling of this hotel, situated on the main A149 on the lovely North Norfolk Coast. Decor is unusual and restful, the main dining area simple and tasteful, restrained almost considering that it also operates as a popular pub. Our bedroom was exotic and... More

We arrived here just before service finished for lunchtime, thinking that we had not much time before the next coast hopper bus. The staff were excellent. We were served really quickly, the food was great and a lovely young lady even brought out her bus timetable to show us our mistake with the bus times.

Wanted a midweek break so decided on the ship as we could take the dog. We had been walking all day on Wells beach and arrived at the Ship to be greeted by a very friendly man who checked us in and showed us to our room. The room was lovely, really clean and beautifully decorated and there was a... More

We booked the Ship for a 3 night stay at the end of Sept for our 5th wedding anniversary. We have stayed here previously on numerous occassions over the years and it was as good, if not better, than previous stays. It was nice to see Chris (the owner) working behind the bar on our arrival. Scott the Manager was... More

We have been to the Ship a few times and have always had such an enjoyable experience. Being N Norfolk food week we decided to return for lunch.....what a disappointment. We waited ages to be served....people who arrived way after us were fed, watered and were almost out the door before our starters arrived. My mushroom fricassee was inedible and... More
