I stayed at the Old Ship in between Christmas and New Year for a 2 night break with the 40% off deal. The check in was very efficient and the staff were helpful and friendly. My first room was situated near communal doors, which were quite noisy, so I requested to be moved and this was accommodated without question. My sea view room on the 3rd floor was very comfortable and spacious. The view was excellent but bear in mind the hotel is not double glazed so you can hear all the party revelers leaving the bars and clubs in the early hours of the morning! Don't book a sea view room unless you're one of them!
The bar and lounge area are furnished in a contemporary style and the seating was very comfortable. During my stay not many people used the bar and because of this it lacked atmosphere. I guess its because the bar and food prices are not very competitive (there are a number of bars and restaurants nearby that offer better value for money). The breakfast was lovely.
The hotel is in a great location on the sea front and within a 5 minute walk to The Lanes.
