Returned a few days ago from a stay in The Old Ship Aground which I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Minehead. The rates charged were way below any other B&B, hotel or inn in the area, therefore I didn't have high expectations. However, I was more than nicely surprised when shown to my room. The room was spacious, very comfortable and contained all the essentials. I was dazzled by the crisp, spotlessly clean, white bedlinen and towels. The food was very good, both dinner and breakfast. The fact that the restaurant was virtually full with locals on a week day evening speaks for itself! The staff were very friendly and obliging, nothing too much trouble. Although the location was immaterial to me, it was in fact very convenient in every respect.
