October News from the Ship

Hello from all the team at the Ship Hotel

A hearty hello from all the team at The Ship and especially from Matthew, our General Manager, who has incredibly now been in the post for exactly one year today!

Congratulations Matthew, and it has been great having you at the helm.

For those of you who may not be aware, Matthew moved from our sister Hotel, the Maids Head in Norwich, where he used to be their Reception Manager. When asking Matthew about the last 12 months he replied instantly by saying how much he has relished being back in the folds of North Norfolk, his old hunting ground. He continued by saying how much he has enjoyed getting involved with the local community and supporting all the Brancaster events this year.

Dare we say that the first week of Autumn has now arrived which means that summer is ebbing away. But not all is doom and gloom as all the crew, here at the Ship, are now looking forward to roaring fires, stunning Norfolk sunsets and bracing walks along the beach!

Rest assured, a very warm welcome awaits, whatever the weather decides.
