The Ship Hotel Review
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff were friendly and accessible. The food was very tasty and we didn't have to wait very long before it was served. The room was on the third floor but, with the lift this was not a problem It was very clean and more than adequate for our needs. I would recommend The Ship Hotel.

Excellent hotel friendly and efficient staff.Food very good. Only one comment a safety handle would be useful on the side of the bath when having a shower.

2/10 Poor

Charged my card after I left for the dinner I had the previous evening and paid cash at the bar - didn’t sign any authorisation for the charge, checked out personally-just unbelievable! Called after I find out I have been charged without my knowledge and authorisation just to be told - “if you paid cash you can’t prove it” Ivaylo Ivanov

Pub food ☹️
Hotel stay and breakfast very good , however this seems to be a pub with rooms and the pub food is not good and expensive , so this effects your stay if you eat there , by saying pub food not good I am being generous
