Our two nights started with a warm welcome from the staff (thanks Kelly!) and a very nice lunch in the pub. A nice menu with really good food - all meals were very good from breakfast (very good traditional plus options) through dinner. The pub has a nice selection of beers and a huge selection of liquors. It seemed as... More

Our priorities were all met and exceeded by The Ship Inn. We were certainly comfortable in our room, but hadn't expected a harbor view quite so compelling. It was also a bit of a surprise when we couldn't get a table for dinner right away - too full of locals. We ducked down to a place next door(also very good,... More

Second visit to Ship Inn - same as first time - no complaints and will return for a third time if required. The fish dishes on offer are also first class and are well presented. Breakfast menu is also very good and cooked to order rather than the buffet breakfast set up which is more common nowadays.

We stayed here for one night and paid £120 for a room because it was the only option left in Stonehaven for us to book in advance. Apparently it's a really popular place!? For £120 a night I'd have expected a good sized room and a bath, as well as a shower. Had a harbour view, but tiny bathroom with... More

Booked in here as there were no rooms in Aberdeen at a reasonable cost and was pleasantly surprised but the friendly welcome and great seafood. The room was clean and comfortable and I will definitely be back by choice next time.

This is the first time I have stayed here and I enjoyed it very much. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and professional. The breakfast was nice, fresh and plentiful with lots of choices. I had dinner in the captains rest, which is part of it, I have eaten here on 3 or 4 previous occasions and the food is... More

We've been going into The Ship for occasional dinners for three or four years now, as we only live round the corner but, after the sour-faced and downright rudeness of one of the staff to us and our guests on Sunday, we won't be doing so again. My wife and I, plus our two-year-old girl, and two friends, plus their... More

As usual, there are two sides to every story. The events as related by Mr Young occurred on Sunday 16th November, but the story actually started the evening before (strange that this detail was omitted from Mr Young's account!). On the Saturday early evening, Mr and Mrs Young were also asked - politely - to keep the children under control... More

I had some business meetings in Aberdeen but wanted to stay outside the city centre during my stay there. I had previously stayed at The Ship and had no doubts about returning. The location of the hotel is fabulous being situated directly on the harbour, with beautiful sun rises in the morning and sun sets in the evening. The rooms... More

I decided to stay at The Ship Inn after a "drinking visit" in February 2014. As I hoped everything was great , good clean Room and friendly staff. Breakfast was great - I could have what I wanted freshly cooked. I will definitely stay again - Thanks
