Booked a room with a sea view for one night and it was perfect. Large wardrobe with sufficient hangers, small bathroom with a double shower cubicle, shower toiletries and was spotlessly clean. Bed was big and comfy and we slept really well. Plenty of choice at breakfast and my poached egg was cooked to perfection. We ate our evening meal... More

We rented the family room. Good for smaller kids (bunk beds). Would be better with upgraded linen. Room was very clean. Food was fairly basic, very friendly and pleasant service. Nice views and walks in the area. Good for a short stay. Kids liked being across from the beach in the harbor.

Nice clean room , pleasant staff , nice food Well presented. Good selection of whiskeys. Only gripe was i thought the room ( no 3, harbour view ) was vastly overpriced.

My boyfriend and I stayed in Stonehaven just for one night and we were very glad that we chose the Ship Inn. The staff were absolutely lovely and the restaurant and bar had a nice homely atmosphere. Our room was perfect - nicely decorated and it had a lovely sea view. The modern bathroom was great too and the whole... More

I have stayed at the Ship many times and have never been disappointed yet. Not sure about the remarks from Ritchiescotland think they may just be tight!! Food has always been very good and the staff are very welcoming. I will be back again soon.

We visited the Ship around eight months ago. And the food was good. However we visited today and it was average, and in some cases poor. The starters were ok at best, but very over priced. in particular the two very small haggis spring rolls priced at £6.50. The mixed grills that the boys had were not that nice, over... More

Had a few beers, real ales were great, and food in the restaurant was also very good. Only stayed here as Aberdeen was full, but next time will check this place... More

I stayed at the Ship as an alternative the Aberdeen business hotels and was disappointed. Despite the hotel being empty they put me in a room at the back overlooking a shed and back alley with lots of kitchen noise. I'm annoyed with myself for not complaining and asking for a better room. However, if they want business, it is... More

This guest reserved his room (without harbour view) through Booking.com, so we did not "put" him in the room - he put himself in it. We make it crystal clear on Booking.com (and Laterooms and our own website) which rooms have views (7 out of 11 do) and reduce the price of the rooms without views. All the rooms were... More

This is the second time we've stayed in the Ship Inn, and we both really enjoyed it. The harbour view from the room was amazing. The restaurant food is excellent, althouigh not cheap - and very busy at friday/saturday dinner. The breakfast was great too - I just wish they served breakfast a bit later at the weekends like most... More
