We stayed at the Ship Inn for one night and were overall very pleased with our stay. The pub is a proper village/country pub with homecooked meals made with fresh ingredients. The chalets are basic but all you need for a short break. Having access to a fridge is a nice touch and the room and bathroom were clean and simply, but nicely, furnished. The staff were friendly and we enjoyed hanging out in the pub, having dinner, using the wi-fi on our laptop, etc. The location is great - all you can see for miles are fields and it is so quiet and relaxing. I can understand why some of the previous visitors have complained but if they expected a top-class hotel a) they're visiting the wrong place, and b) they would have to pay much more than £70 a night for a room of that size! The only negative points were breakfast was a little slow and nothing special - although the pub is in the middle of the countryside so you have to accept a slower pace sometimes - and I know the area well and have stayed in very similar chalets/pubs with rooms that charge the same price but are of a much higher standard. The Ship Inn could do with bringing the quality of their rooms to the same kind of level as their competitors so they don't attract the negative feedback as a result. For example, the owners could do with spending as little as a tenner on each room just to tidy it up a bit and modernise it slightly and then the ratings would be closer to excellent than very good :-) :-). A lovely weekend away overall; thank you very much. :-)
