Situated on Holy Island, it only has four bedrooms. All with en suite. Room 3 is the best. Nice and quiet once the day trippers have left the island. Had a lovely meal. The menu is a little limited, but delicious. Try the crab and prawn salad for starters, almost a main course. Breakfast was equally delicious with full English,... More

The wife and I spent two lovely nights here, Holy island is a great place to be when all the day visitors have departed because the tide has come in, tranquil and beautiful. On arriving the owner reserved a parking place for us at the front of the inn, he was very friendly and chatty for the whole of our... More

Having visited Holy Island numerous times we thought we would try The Ship inn for a spot of lunch, we were greeted at the bar by a man who seemed to have lost his smile? He was blunt to the point of rude, and certainly lacking customer service. I ordered a Tuna sandwhich, it was dreadful, I couldn't eat it,... More

We were eating here at the end of May this year on recommendation from the owner of the Lindisfarne Hotel (Sean). It's a lovely old world Inn and obviously had reserved a table as Holy Island can get very busy depending on the tide times. I had a lovely Lamb Henry which was cooked to perfection, litterally falling off the... More

We had 2 glorious days on Holy Island in April. Our accomodation was very comfortable, with a large ensuite bathroom. Facilities and food were excellent with very friendly and helpful staff. We can highly recommend and will be staying here again.

My wife and I found the meal mediocre. We were a little bit put off by having sauces in plastic sachets; not the sort of thing you expect when paying these prices. The other thing that really put us off eating here again was how sticky the tables were. They had obviously not been cleaned properly for a long time.... More
