We stayed at The Old Ship for 2 nights. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the maids were still working in the corridors at 6.30pm. All the staff were very polite and friendly.
The room was very clean and I was surprised how nice it was given some of the reviews, maybe a little dated but for the price great value. A minor point would be that the shower wasn't fitted properly on the wall.
Two things need to be looked at 1) no blind in the bathroom, the lower part of the window was opaque however the top part wasn't and whilst we were not on a main road there were windows opposite so it was a little off putting. 2) The bed had a big dip in the middle so the first night was spent trying not to roll into the centre, by the 2nd night we were more used to it but the room (202) would benefit from a new mattress.
Despite the points above this hotel is really nice and the location is fantastic. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and for the price we would return
