“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

I was here alone, staying in Spalding on business. I opted for the'carvery of the day' and couldn't have wanted better. Everything piping hot, four different fresh veg, plus roast and boiled potatoes. I managed to eat it all - just! It wasn't busy that night and the service was excellent.
If you like 60's music you would love the background music. If not, you would have found it too loud! Definitely a place to come back to though.

8 of us went for a meal here could not believe the excellent quality of food, service and perfect timing - thought it must be a fluke, so we all went back a month later and it was just as perfect !, fantastic place - well done !!

had a good sunday carvery meal 22 sept using the voucher in the local magazine for 50% off . on our two £10.95 meals we had £3.97 knocked off; the place was very busy and were quickly seen off with thats what the till says you pay. when i went to school 50% was half. left with a very sour taste and a ruined sunday lunch time. we could have got a good sunday lunch nearer home for far less but wanted to try different surroundings.

I am really sorry that you were not completely satisfied by your experience a The Ship Albion. There appears to be a confusion as the price of our carvery is £7.95. If you would care to refer to the management at The Ship Albion I will be happy to look into this for you. Our Sunday Carvery has proved to be a phenomenal success, and the feedback from our customers has been extremely favourable. We are commited to ensuring that everybody enjoys their dining experience in terms of both value for money and quality.

We had sunday carvery on the 8th September we had a fantatic meal and the Chefs were very well procented, polite and helpfull. However when we arrived we were asked if we would like a drink then we told the Manageress we had a table booked she told use to wait at the enterence of the dinningroom we felt embarrised as we stood there waiting to be seated. After the meal we went to pay the Manageress and at no point did she ask us if we had a nice meal i said to her that the meal was lovley and that we would come again but she never spoke to us. Not inpressed with front of house service, had it not have been for the food we would not be coming again.

Clean, standard rooms, good food and friendly staff. Plenty of off road parking with a garden sit out area. Stay was on a room only basis and to be honest we have had cheaper and better. The minus about this hotel is the stairs leading to the rooms, steep, narrow and winding. Not very good if you are unsteady on your feet. There are no lifts. Not sympathetic regarding genuine emergency cancellations.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are easier to get to, not to many stairs to climb.
