Stayed for a couple of nights in the captains cabin. Was perfect. Staff very friendly, breakfast excellent, location perfect. Yes it is a bit basic but the website says so. Cannot fault it in anyway at all and will be going again

Stayed one night in the captains cabin which was very nice and comfortable. The real charm is the bar below deck and the drinking/eating area on deck.

We did book in advance and glad we had. Had a lovely late lunch of pancakes all washed down with a few beers/wines. Service was good and the atmosphere relaxed. We will definitely be returning again soon and recommending it to our friends.

My husband wanted to go on the ship as it was in the good beer guide. Lovely sitting out on deck but have to say facilities are not the best. Pancakes are very good though.

The boat is moored on the quay in Wells. The location is stunning. Try and get a table on deck if you can so you can enjoy watching the birds as they swoop in the estuary. Service is friendly and although it took a little time for the food to arrive we took this as a good sign of it... More

Stunning old ship moored on Wells quay. Great atmosphere with the live music nights, view and location as the sun sets is unrivalled.

This was my first visit to Wells and I didn't know what to expect. Not quite as seaside town as I hoped but still a charming place to visit. Lots of interesting little shops etc... Perhaps the most interesting was ALBATROSS, which my sister said was "a pancake ship"! Well I can't turn down the opportunity for a pancake. We... More

We love Holland for its Dutch pancakes so a great treat to find the Albatros. Lovely location. Great staff and fantastic food. And a good price.

We came here with great expectations - the old dutch barge was interesting and the staff pleasant. I thought I would go for light lunch and chose a pancake with lemon and sugar which turned out to be stodgy and with insufficient lemon and sugar. Then large numbers of families invaded the downstairs and the atmosphere became more like a... More
