We came to stay here as my husband used to live and work in Somerset and was meeting old friends nearby. He had stayed before and said it was ok. Basic but great for the money. How wrong he was it has clearly changed hands. Shown to our room, it was basic and tired. Stains on

Me and my sister go here regularly about once a month for lunch and normally good. But I think once again they have changed ownership. Today when we visited the disabled toilet by the door looked like someone had washed sand off their feet and there was no toilet paper. I

The Ship and Castle is on the left as you enter Congresbury. The pub has a large covered beer garden at the rear. There were a good selection of beers on tap. The restaurant seemed to be reasonably priced with a variety of selections available. The service was friendly and

I was the said senior bar person on that shift and the girl that was called a tart by myself, was a former employee who was dismissed for the same behaviour...flirting outrageously with male customers, which resulted in fake £50 notes being excepted by her...yes 2 of them....the younger bar maid had agreed that afternoon to stay on and help me with evening shift as I was ill...all was fine until the said other girl came in, then the bar maid started playing up saying she didn't want to stay, even though we were busy, I told her that she couldn't go because we were busy, she to which replied I don't feel well I am going to get the bus....I of course was angry & upset that she walked out when we still had a bar full of customers.....I had to phone the owner to come help me as at this point I was feeling very ill ( I then spent the next 8 days in bed very ill )....I have had a look to see who you are Tracey Doole & she that you are the bar maids mum !! your entire review is flawed as yes you came in to see your daughter for 10 mins that eve on your way home from cabot...what you fail to say is that your daughter who made out she was ill....in fact she wasn't as she took herself off clubbing straight from the pub.....to say I was unprofessional is a slander as not once did I raise to the flirting young girl shouting at me...but as she was asked to leave the pub before this & wouldn't....she stood at the bar with your daughter trying to get me to rise into a row of which I wouldn't......next time you wish too leave a review please make sure that you know the entire facts....yours sincerely the senior bar person.
What time can we get into our rooms please.
You will need to contact the hotel to see if a room is available early but normally after 3pm.
