We stayed at the Ship recently for our tenth Anniversary, what a great place to spend a few days and explore the local area, we had a really nice en-suite double room, the food was excellent, and the staff were all excellent and provided great customer service, but a special mention must go to the ladies who run the kitchen in the morning, they made breakfast an absolute pleasure, I would definitely recommend the ship, and I will go back again.

2 night stay mid week recently. +ves: good location 1 mile from Littlestone beach , friendly helpful staff both for the evening meal and breakfast. Breakfast was good quality and plentiful. The venue is a v old coaching inn on a busy Main Street. Very period in places, nice big open outside rear patio area and lots of inside dining space. Free parking adjacent to the inn. -ves: the room although clean and tidy was noisy until the outside bar patio quietens down around 10-11pm. Alternately you could have a room facing the front but then you get traffic noise ( windows old traditional sash non double glazed type). The biggest issues were 1) shower water pressure poor. No flow = long time for a normal shower…also no place to put anything …soap, shampoo etc. 2) WiFi is very flakey….it’s free to use, but weak signal drops out regularly. 3) room had no maid service after 1st night…no emptying bins, no replacing shampoo , soap or drinking water used….this is not unusual these days as hotels offer the green option of doing nothing to save on resources, but this is usually an option…nothing in the room suggested this. ( also the externals are a little tired….paint on window sill badly flaking). If this was a £60-70 a night place perhaps some of the above could be excused. At £100 plus however, not so

When we were directed to our room…. We were shocked! Tiny dark dingy room claustrophobic! Dark green walls tiny window bed in sort of alcove! Tiny mirror with no access, stale smell and several flies! We went down to ask to be moved and said we won’t stay there as dark and dingy she said why? Don’t the light work…. What so we needed to put light on At 1pm in afternoon???? Tada! We were gone!

Me and my family (6 in total) booked here to end our long weekend by the coast, and I’m so very pleased we did. From the moment we walked in we were greeted in the friendliest of ways. We were shown to our table and immediately offered a table outside as the weather was so nice. We ordered a variety of the menu, from roast dinners to ham egg and chips and there was nothing but clean plates after. The food came out promptly but not to fast that we didn’t have time to enjoy the drinks we had. Food was cooked to perfection, hot and delicious. We opted for a desert and that was just as amazing. Freshly made, played so elegant and also looked and tasted delicious. The staff were extremely friendly, one of whom even took the time to enquire about my daughters name and listen to her chat away. The whole vibe of the place was amazing and is well worth a trip. We will be back soon for some more sticky toffee pudding! Thank you to everyone here and we will see you soon! From the Nicholson/Keane/Piper/McCalister family.

The Hotel was nice and reception check in very friendly. Rooms were clean and had everything we needed but plumbing was really, really noisy - maybe as such an old Inn. Breakfast was good and breakfast waitresses were really friendly, one gave us some local information that was very helpful. On the plus side the position of the Hotel is perfect, beach walkable distance along a bridlepath/wooded area - and it's a lovely quiet sandy beach perfect for little ones. On the minus side the rooms we had were on the High Street and I don't know if it's a pretend racetrack but cars and motorbikes tearing along it at night kept waking me up - the Hotel can't help this. We had a drink in the outside dining area which was really nice and pint of beer was price expected for the area but a glass of prosecco £7??? Really? I had to query this because I thought I'd been charged for a bottle, so wouldn't drink there again. The Hotel rate was very good value for money especially with breakfast included but bar prices not to my taste.
