Band playing until 11:30pm may as well be in my room. Management didn't give a flying pig when I complained. Response was that we're a local pub not premier Inn. Says on our website we do live music.how about starting with your 65 quid a night prices then. Don't charge prices for something you're not!!!!!

I can't review the accommodation as we did not stay the night but would highly recommend the entertainment. The band, Ian Shawcross and friends, were absolutely brilliant and we had a fabulous evening. The whole place was buzzing and full of happy smiling people listening and dancing to great music. I would like to thank the management for organising such... More

We arrived at the Ship Inn in Dymchurch to spend a relaxing couple of days. We chose the Ship Inn because we wanted to stay somewhere a bit different. The stairs were a little steep and the floor in our room was slightly uneven, but the Inn is 600 years old, so we were expecting something like this. Our room... More

Stayed here for two nights, and feel let down with our stay. Decor and furnishings of the room were very old fashioned and could have easily been refreshed. Also had an awful smell in our room, which we weren't sure what it was, but was very unpleasant. The kettle in the room was full of limescale so couldn't even have... More

We overnighted after a day trip to France but nearly didn't book it fearing the quality because the price was so low. However, the room was a normal inn type room with a comfortable bed and en-suite shower & toilet. Breakfast was excellent but it has to be booked in advance at an extra cost of £5 per head -...

Lovely Inn with large dining rooms and really nice bar. Room was typical unmodernised inn room: tiny shower, little water pressure in en suite but beds comfy enough. Useful place for overnight prior to channel crossing. Would use again Didn't try breakfast as 8.30 serving was too late for tunnel crossing.
