The cove has been a haven for boats and old sailing ships since the mid-1600s and this hotel and restaurant with cozy pub really satisfied my curiosity. The tidal ebb and flow just outside the window was fantastic, the misty evenings and crisp sunny mornings made a full range of scenery without leaving my seat in the pub. The room... More

The location, the views, the service, the food! Everything was exceptional! What a charming little seaside inn! Wish we could have stayed more than the 1 night! If I'm ever back in Stonehaven, I will definitely be staying at The Ship Inn again!

Staff were attentive, helpful and pleasant.....the food was excellent...all this and well kept real ales and a malt... More

We have just spent a fantastic weekend at the Ship Inn and would highly recommended. The bedroom was extremely comfortable and very well equipped and designed, and although we did not have the views others have mentioned, we got a very good price for the two day break, including a very nice breakfast with lots of options and delicious scrambled...
