Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed the Ocean Mist we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. First and foremost the staff can always make or break a vacation and the staff on the ship are nothing less than perfect. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. Special mentions to Matt (The Commodore ) and Gordon on reception, to the girls at breakfast, Toni and Rachel and finally Will the barman. We stayed in 2 different rooms - Joseph Hobbs and the Kenelm Guinness, both very well appointed with lots of small touches, including the strange ships cat! Recommended to anyone who likes a peaceful relaxing break.

Luxury experience without the cost. From the initial welcome aboard, to the service throughout, the staff were absolutely fabulous. Their passion for their role and the boat shines through with pride. Our cabin was excelled with plenty of room and had that feeling of what t was travelling in days gone by. The bar is not just a relaxing and friendly place to relax and drink, it’s stunning with its polished copper roof, glass front to a decking. Breakfast is excellent and overall we had an amazing stay. Be back again .

A wonderfully unique, quirky and stylish hotel. The staff really pushed the boat out (excuse the pun) and made our stay incredibly special. Wonderful welcome, fantastic suite, delightful cocktails & 5 star service! We were allocated the Steering Flat, which was beautifully quirky and full of character. A memorable stay. Can't wait to go back!
