“great place for a crowd, esp if needing piblic transport”
Reviewed 21 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The Old Ship is a great place for a crowd; it was obviously a pub till recently. The accommodation is exactly as described. There are 2 sitting areas: 1 large with screens and hifi equipment (which we did not know how to work - inadequate instructions); 1 cosier, and an area with a snooker table. The kitchen dining area is generous, with 2 dishwashers and 2 fridge-freezers; lots of table space. The cooking equipment was a bit basic.
The owner was helpful and prompt in repaying the security deposit.
The Old Ship is very convenient for those dependent on public transport, buses and trains. It also has its own car park.

“Best Fun we've had for years!”

We booked the Ship Inn to jointly celebrate 3 landmark birthdays in one year : 60th, 50th & 18th. Party of 29 with ages from 13 to 81.
The Ship was all we had hoped it would be, roomy, clean, all facilities we required, all of a high specification. Quality beds, showers, multi media systems, cooking facilities etc.
Nearby are a number of very friendly pubs, take-a-ways, cafés, a superb bakery, co-op, aldi etc. The local bus service is as good as I've experienced, so everyone can pop out along the coast and have a bite and a drink and it stops right outside.
Now the Ship Inn is not perfect, but it's one hell of a place to party.
We all loved it and although we had one or two minor issues they were all sorted out quickly and without fuss.
Our experience at the Ship Inn will be talked about fondly for many many years. Memories to cherish. Thanks to the management, cleaners and 'the locals' for making it such a special week.

Thanks again.

“Fun house”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The Ship Inn was an excellent place for our group holiday - loads of room, and the shared spaces of dining room, kitchen and lounge were really conducive to a good socialising experience. We had some rather odd plumbing problems, but were very pleased with the way the owner responded—some places just ignore them! It's a well-equipped and nicely presented house in a great location—we had a splendid holiday. We were lucky with the weather, but there would be space enough for everyone not to get on each other's nerves even if it rained.
