The Ship Inn
Ranked #6 of 16 Hartlepool B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 24, 2011

stayed here for 2 nights for a romantic break in the country by the sea, the views from the rooms were outstanding overlooking stunning landscaped gardens and fantastic sea views. the hosts were very warm and welcoming, we called in advance to say we were ariving in the afternoon and although the inn itself was not open to customers sheila welcomed us in and showed us to our beautiful room. modern but warm and cosy looked like we were the first to stay there due to the cleanliness and well keeping. we ate in the restaurant each night and the food was amazing we had fillet steak cooked to perfection with king prawns and a seafood sauce followed by the waitresses reccomendation of rocky road pie, absolutley gorgeous. my partenr had a fantastic time with the landlord peter in trying all the excellent real ales that was on offer, needless to say we were a bit tipsy so a warm comfortable bed was perfect.
i would reccomend this place for anyone wanting to visit nearby harlepool and durham and for business travellers this is real luxury at a fantastic affordable cost

well done the ship inn we will be returning :)

Room Tip: all the rooms face out onto the beautiful garden and when stepping outside ypu get fantastic sea vie...

A fine Edwardian inn with wood panelled restaurant and modern bedrooms (everything worked). I can recommend queen scallops & king prawns followed by roast rump of lamb in a tasty gravy cooked by Shiela the landlady whilst in the bar husband Peter is dispensing cask ales from 7 handpumps. These come usually from Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland breweries. The pub is 3 miles towards the coast from the A19 (Castle Eden turnoff). Keep some room for a great breakfast which in ancient ships' tradition is served on a square plate.

Room Tip: Don't arrive too soon Mon-Fri. The inn does not open till 6pm.
