Had a great stay. Only stayed 1 night as visiting Brighton for a concert. Venue extremely close to Hotel which was perfect. Room very clean and exceptionally quiet. Would definitely stay again if in the area.

Great hotel - Appalling Car Park Attending!
Overall we liked The Old Ship. It was quaint and the reception staff were freindly. Both myself and my partner found the bed to be uncomfortable - Of course this is down personal to preference - The pillows gave me a headache both nights! We paid £50 for the valet parking underneath the hotel - The gentleman that checked us in was lovely - Couldn't fault his service! Upon leaving, the hotel had accepted a delivery at check out time (rookie mistake) and the lorry was parked across the door that our car had been lined up with to collect. The attendant told us it would be a 2 minute wait. We waited 25 minutes to be able to leave the car park whilst the attendant got other guests out through another door that had all come later to get their cars than us! I would have overlooked this as it wasn't technically his fault however he did not come over once to apologise for the 25 minute wait or try to come up with any sort of solution. This resulted in us being late to our next destination - I would have at least expected an apology for our £50! Shame our trip was marred by this service as we liked the hotel in general and would stay again - Maybe find local parking elsewhere though!!
