Stayed here with my wife and mother last night. We had rooms 21 and 23 on the first floor, up some step stairs that my 91 year old mother managed ok. Good check in and the modernised bedrooms are excellent. We stayed on a D B & B basis, with 2 courses for dinner. The starter we chose was potted... More

Beautiful day so decided on a tip to Parkgate. Stopped at the Ship for refreshment, lovely staff and a lovely time sitting out front watching the world go by. The Ship is next door to Nicholls Ice cream shop (award winning Ice cream makers) and have their icecream on their menu so rather than leave our viewing spot we decided... More

my sister and I had the Ship recommended and so went for a meal on the Friday evening which was really good, the staff were extremely friendly and the service was excellent. Luckily the weather was good and so we were able to sit outside and appreciate the stunning view

Although it was busy it did not detract from the service or atmosphere. And lovely views from the front. For the quality of the food etc it was very good value. Parking was available for patrons...

Great location on the estuary and accommodation and food were excellent but the highlight was most definitely the staff. They were responsive, efficient and friendly without being over familiar - possibly the best service we have experienced and a credit to the management. This was our first time in the Wirral but I'm sure we will be back. I wouldn't... More

On arrival the staff were helpful on check in and the room we were appointed was very comfortable with a... More
