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...

Stayed and ate here. Room small but guess they probably all are because of the age of the place and accommodating ensuites. View over harbour was stunning. Bar and restaurant had good atmosphere. Mussels were lovely, but liver more leather, offered with chips not mash sadly. Husband enjoyed his hake and think seafood more a strength here. Breakfast ...full Scottish... More

The Ship Inn has an ideal location, overlooking the harbour. The rooms are well appointed & clean. Some have a harbour view. The food is good (including breakfast), and there is a nice bar atmosphere with real ales. The Staff are also very pleasant & helpful.

Thank you to Fiona and all the staff for such a welcoming stay. It was lovely to be escorted to the room, so rare these days. The room was well thought out, especially the en-suite and the cleanest we have experienced so far. Fiona and the team's Scottish hospitality was second to none. Others could do well to learn from...

While the rooms are small (partly necessitated by the lovely old building they are in), they are clean and modern and very well appointed; our room on the second floor had a wonderful view of the harbour. Like the rooms, the breakfast selection was small but perfectly-proportioned - easier to put together a satisfying breakfast than in many large hotels... More

The hotel and restaurant is very dated. Extremely uncomfortable bed. Room was very hot. Beautiful location and view from the room. Breakfast was very poor. Evening meal was bland and unappetizing which was unfortunate as we had been during the summer in 2014 and it was lovely, hence the reason we went back for our anniversary. We won't be going...

I stayed at the Ship for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The view out of my room window was fantastic and the room itself spotless and clean. I had a lovely meal and the waiting staff were very friendly and chatty. I was able to get a parking place opposite the hotel on the quayside as being February it... More
