A great break at this dog-loving pub and hotel. The staff were really friendly to us and our elderly dog, who was given a sausage for breakfast. Tranquil setting, comfortable bed and room. Large garden at back. Patio, conservatory and bar offer plenty of space to eat or enjoy a drink. Food very good and excellent beers on tap.

I have been coming to this pub for a very long time, and although it is not as good as it was in its heyday it is still an excellent place to visit. For lunch I had the scotch egg to start which was lovely, served warm, the egg inside had a nice runny yolk and the black pudding in... More

The Ship at Dunwich is in the middle of the village, just a couple of hundred metres from the beach. It's more of a pub / restaurant with rooms - there's no reception area, and nowhere much to sit during the day, apart from in the (well frequented bar). There's a good sized garden at the back with tables, and... More

We stayed for one night over the ( very wet) August Bank Holiday. The Ship is a lovely pub that when we were there did a roaring trade at lunchtime but was quieter in the evenings. The room was comfortable and well presented. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of cooked options. We also had lunch and dinner in... More

The Ship Inn at Dunwich is such a lovely building and fabulous location, We had booked a weekend with very close friends and their daughter and were all so looking forward to it. Our friends had booked for us all, but we have two very active and boisterous Parson Jack Russell's, and decided that we would call the hotel and... More

I booked two rooms for myself, my wife and daughter on the 7th July for the Friday 29th August for two nights. I requested a king size bed and was told that there would be a king size bed. A week before our arrival I called to check that all was well and was told that it was not a... More

We booked this pub at very short notice, just to get away for a couple of nights. All staff very freindly and nothing too much trouble. Added bounus it was dog friendly (we don't have one) but they were all so well behaved and helped to break the ice with other guests. Breakfasts filled us both up for the whole... More

We found the Ship to be a nice enough place to stay, but came away thinking it was overpriced. For what we'd paid per night for a room (and from the photos on the website), we'd expected a 'boutique style' pub with a really good restaurant, but although our room was clean, comfortable and more than adequate, our stay wasn't...

Just stayed at The Ship for 2 nights, lovely location, right by a beach and lots walking options good food, decent rooms at reasonable rates but best of all a hotel that really welcomes people travelling with dogs. Most places we've been that claim to be dog friendly are at best dog-tolerant, The Ship really does make you and your... More

Wonderful place. We stayed here for the weekend with friends in a family room (Blackfriars). Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great garden for the kids to play in. Food was gorgeous in the restaurant. Great choice of wines and beers. The hotel is right near the beach. My only criticism would be the room we had had very low ceilings... More
