Had a lovely time here and the staff were great, really good service. We stayed in Blackfriars at the top and it was a big room but not really suited to a tall person. We had a room next door for my son. The main room was £125 which I thought was well overpriced to what we would pay but... More

We woke up yesterday on the first day of our Easter break and decided to go away for the night with our 12 year our old daughter and 15 week old puppy and found this place by searching dog friendly accommodation in Suffolk and I am glad we did. Having only ever been in 4 and 5 star hotels when... More

We stayed in "Guildhall" which is meant to be in the 'Marsh View Best' category, the room and bed were tiny (my partners feet nearly stuck out the bottom) the marsh view was more of a garage view with marsh to the far side. The plug socket was held together with tape, we had an empty wine bottle in our... More

Stayed here mid March… Left feeling that the whole experience was extremely over priced. We booked a best room and ended up with a family room which was tiny. There were no ‘little luxuries’ and the room was extremely basic. Neither of us slept at all due to a mattress which just collapsed when you lay on it and a... More

We stayed at the Ship Inn and had a wonderful time, the staff made us most welcome and the place was clean, cosy and relaxed. We enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly go again. The history of the area is very interesting and also some lovely walks

Having stayed at The Ship twice, we returned today, for lunch in the garden and once again determined to return, for a short break. This pub, resturaunt, hotel is tucked away on the doorstep of the Suffolk coast and is warm and friendly and makes you feel like you have known it all your life! The food is excellent and... More

This is the second time that we've stayed in the last 6 months, again as a result of an offer, and we will be happy to stay here again. We were in a bigger bedroom this time, overlooking the courtyard with two windows and the car park on the other side through another. We arrived during high winds, so were... More

This was a business trip. I had checked the place out before booking and getting a very good deal. I had a very pleasant room which was very comfortable, the wifi was good and there was the usual coffee tray which sported good quality biscuits. The bathroom was clean and good quality shower gel etc. Having read the menu I... More

We've meant to write a review on The Ship every time we come, we've been here so many times but finally decided to get around to it this evening whilst actually sitting in the bar at The Ship, by the open fire with a very nice bottle of red wine, fabulous! We totally love this place, all the staff are... More

The Ship is a great place to stay for a few days by the sea. Comfortable rooms, good food, pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Excellent location on the coast with good walking north to Walberswick and Southwold and south to the National Trust coastguard cottages. The pub is very dog-friendly which means that as many as five dogs were in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Once a haunt of smugglers, The Ship Inn isn't just a great place to eat, drink, relax and get away from it all – we like to think it's also part of a great story. Now a quiet, idyllic village surrounded by nature reserves, heathland and beach, only the romantic ruins of Dunwich monastery remain to hint at the fate of this once thriving medieval port claimed by the waves during a terrible storm. It's said you can still hear the peal of the church bells beneath the waves. While we can't guarantee that, there are certain, more earthly things we're always happy to provide… real ales, real food and a real fire. You will find: a great pub, home-cooked food in our restaurant, a cosy hotel with comfortable, traditionally furnished bedrooms, some with views across the sea or marshes. There is also an enormous garden dotted with fruit trees (including our 300 year old fig tree) and a beach that really is just a couple of minutes walk away. Whether you want to use it as a base to explore this wild and wonderful coastline, enjoy some of the best fish and chips on the Suffolk coast or simply indulge in a pint or two of Adnams, The Ship Inn at Dunwich extends the warmest of welcomes. ... more   less
