I've just returned from a weeks stay and highly recommend the Old Ship. My room had an amazing sea view and a massive bed. It can be noisy as the main road is busy through the night and there are bars on the beach nearby but the hotel provides ear plugs to help.
My only suggestion would be to provide fridges in rooms - as an avid tea drinker it was impossible to keep my milk fresh.
The most valuable assets of this hotel are the staff. They are friendly, helpful and welcoming. A special mention to the lady who greeted me at breakfast every morning and whose Granddaughter works on reception.
The breakfast was really good with lots of different options available. Everything was freshly cooked and very tasty.
This really is a home from home and I would chose to stay there again.
Colleagues who were staying in other hotels nearby were very jealous and all intend to book the Ship next time we are down there.
Well done to all the staff, you do an amazing job and made my week :)
