“Another first class weekend at The Ship Inn”
Reviewed 6 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

This is our third visit to The Ship Inn for our Christmas weekend. All I can say is totally wonderful the accommodation is perfect for large family gatherings and suits all ages. The owner has added in a new game shuffle board and that was a big hit with everyone including my mother who is 73 and was the champion at the end of the weekend. This property and the pool table, table football, table tennis table, cinema room and numerous other games and activities is one not to be missed. Well done to the owner for putting so much thought into what makes a great stay.

“Great accommodation for a large group”
Reviewed 7 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

21 adults, 2 babies and 1 dog. Stayed for a weekend to celebrate my husband's 30th. Guests were aged 0-75 and all enjoyed the stay. Lovely location. 20 minute walk to the beach, shops in Colwyn to browse also useful Aldi and Co-op nearby. Great for a party we got a buffet from local cafe/ catering company Country Taste for Saturday night, local takeaways nearby too. Comfy beds, many bathrooms (all clean and working) and a very well equipped kitchen. Washer and dryer was handy with a newborn. Pool table and football table well used as well as board games. People could easily get about fir days out in Colwyn Bay, Snowdonia, Llandudno and a track day at Anglesey Circuit. We only wished we had booked it for a week not just a weekend!

“Just what we needed for a Golden Wedding celebration”
Reviewed 9 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a great time at the Ship. Plenty of space for our large gathering. Kitchen particularly well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery. The downstairs sitting room was large enough for our traditional family panto!
Colwyn Bay is a great place to stay with easy access to the superb scenic views of North Wales. Also many castles, stately homes, gardens and scenic railways to see.

Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

it is a perfrect accommodation for family and friends. Location is amazing, accessible to Supermarket, beach is just few yards away. We never had a dull moment during our stay as too many games to choose from in the play room. I like every single corner of the house especially the kitchen. Eleanor is very accommodating and easy to talk to. Over all comment "SUPERB TO THE MAXIMUM LEVEL" thank you very mch

“Amazing house!”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

What a fantastic house! It was perfect for celebrating my husband's 40th birthday. It was clean and homely with fantastic facilities. The kids especially loved the dormitory. Even though there were lots of guests, it was still very spacious. Everyone commented on how great the weekend was. Thank you so much for having us!!

“Large, clean & perfect for families looking to have fun all under one roof”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Just back from a NYE stay at the Ship with 8 other families. The house is perfect for a large group with the dorm room being a massive hit with all our kids. The layout is ideal with no shortage of bathrooms & hot water. The kitchen has everything you need, we even managed to cook and sit all together to eat a roast for 34 people on New Years Day. A pool table and large projector screen are nice touches. Ideal location for exploring North Wales and we enjoyed a fab day at Conwy Castle. Well done Mark & the team you have put a together a superb offering. We look forward to returning in the future.

Just come back from The ship Inn our second stay in two years all I can say is it was as good as we remembered it. Our family range between 78 and 13 years old and everyone without exception had a great time. Great property, great facilities - since our last stay the owner has added the table tennis and basket ball game - great fun. I don't think you would find anywhere better for a get together - everything is first class beautiful rooms great kitchen plenty of space. Lovely location plenty to do. Thank you so much we had a great time.
