Reviewed May 12, 2011

Great room right on the edge of the harbor with excellent views. Very clean and up to date. The staff were most friendly and helpful. The pub was quite lively and had an excellent selection of local beer and Scotch. The food was very good promptly served and reasonably priced. The only thing that could have made our stay better was no rain! But, the SHip Inn can't control the weather. We will be back!

We'd been here some years before and had great memories. This time , the Ship has been renovated and has a new dining room. Our harbour-view room was spacious , very clean and VERY comfortable. The bar had an excellent choice of beers and although very busy, the restaurant was very good.. I asked for something slightly different to the menu and it was produced with a smile! Although Stonehaven was busy, there was no noise at night and waking up to that view in glorious sunshine was a bonus. The full scottish breakfast was great.. theres nothing like a fry-up you havent had to cook yourself ! We will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Pay a little bit more for the harbour view

very friendly greeting on arrival even though all staff were busy in the bar & restaurant. amazing views over the harbour from our sea view room, the hotel really is right beside the sea. all faciilities were provided in the room, which was clean & tidy. the only very small downside was the shower, it had very low pressure, but was enough to have a reasonable shower in so no real complaint.
the food in the restaurant was excellent, what a choice & superbly cooked.

Room Tip: book a table in restaurant in advance.. very busy

I stayed here whilst attending a friends' wedding in Aberdeen and their reception at the Tolbooth Restaurant which is just a step away from The Ship . Everything was perfect , the Ship is a great place to stay ,,ask for a room with a Harbour view as it is a very special treat to wake up to see the fishing boats come in . The Ships' staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast was lovely , nothing is too much trouble . I will definitely be back for a longer stay .

Stayed 1 night travelling from Inverness to Edinburgh on business trip. Reserved 1 room with harbour view; great to see the sea and sun rise in the morning excellent. Dinner menu good; and food great. Breakfast made in kitchen; eg ni buffet which was nice and surprising for a Scandinavian traveller.
