Great short break

Stayed overnight for the first time at The Ship Hotel for bed ,breakfast and evening meal. So welcoming. Great atmosphere, so so dog friendly , warm and comforting. Rooms were beautiful, dog,bed , towel and blanket provided with dog bowls and biscuits – nice touch. Tea/coffee/fridge facilities are great in bedroom. Lunch menu was fresh and different. Evening meal menu was wonderful , between us we had the battered haddock and their own burger which were both fabulous. Chocolate torte was to die for. Breakfast was so good , everything you could think of and freshly cooked. Communication before stay was great – would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

Excellent visit

My family & I visited The Ship for dinner, everything was perfect! The food & service was exceptional! Vicky serviced us and couldn’t have been more helpful. Lovely experience, thank you.

Great food and friendly staff

5 of us went here on New Years Day. The staff were friendly, good ambience – we all chose different things from the menu and all were excellent. A great evening out.

Lovely cheeky little getaway!

What a lovely experience! We booked last minute for Saturday night and what a treat it was! Our room was spacious and very well equipped, even for our two Labradors who were spoilt rotten. Scrupulously clean and comfy dog beds, their own towels, water bowl and treats were waiting for them. The humans were well looked after too! Without exception, the staff were a delight, lovely atmosphere amongst them on a busy Saturday night, obviously a great team! Dinner was lovely and service efficient. Breakfast was delicious! (oh and the dogs loved the sausages!). Lovely walks from the door down to the beach to work up an appetite… what more could we ask for!
