The Hotel seemed a little shabby on arrival, however was pleasantly surprised by the room itself which was comfy, well decorated with a spacious en-suite (the shower was awesome). Breakfast was cooked to order and was well cooked and substantial. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Great food, very welcoming lady (Aussie) running the bar. Food very tasty, very hot but beware of the huge portions. Beer also in good condition and tasty. Give the nachos starter a go but share it!!! We will be back again, good value and tasty

We've recently stayed here. The outside is looking very tired now and the inside is the same. Scuff marks every where on the walls. Our room number 3 has scuffed walls, stained carpet a bulb gone in the bedroom and two bulbs missing leaving holes in the bathroom. The bed is large and comfortable and the furniture goes well with... More

Dear hannah Thanks for your comments, and agree the outside of the building is in need of paiting - we will be redecorating the whole exterior in September. We had hoped to do so this spring, but the building does not belong to us and we were awaiting a grant from the landlord that has been confirmed too late to... More

The Ship and Dock is a very small pub near the lower ferry and close to the waterfront. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable but have everything necessary; hairdryer, plenty of lovely white towels, toiletries, tv. My bathroom had a shower and my friend's had a bath - both very clean. The breakfast is excellent as are the pizzas... More

A super place, comfortable and friendly in the perfect spot. Very help full staff, they searched every where and found my wife's lost ear ring. Delicious breakfasts, great fun in bar on evening. Yummy pizza snacks. 2 minutes walk to the waters edge, 5 minutes to the town centre. 2 minutes to the Naval College. A very nice stay.

We came here because we were told their kitchen makes the best pizza in town. It is more of a tiny pub and I don't think many people actually eat in. We still had a bit of driving to do so decided to eat in rather than reheating the food. Whilst waiting for the food one of the local drunk... More
