We stayed in The Old Ship Hotel on Monday of this week - our first time in this hotel having dropped into Padstow late in the afternoon and decided to stay over.
You really won't be disappointed - like another review we cannot believe the negative comments on here, we thought the place was fantastic. The rooms, although a little small were very clean and comfortable with all mod cons - we stayed in Room No 3. As this was a very quiet Monday evening there were not many people around and the hotel not busy but can see that as this room is over the main door it could be more noisy on a weekend.
Simon who checked us in and seemed to be waiter, porter, barman, many things was so polite and accommodating - it was very impressive and constantly asked if everything was ok - the hotel owners should be really pleased they have such a fantastic employee. After seeing the recommendations about food we tried it - very nice. Waiting and bar staff were very attentive and helpful - nothing too much trouble. We had the lobster special and beef medallions which was delicious although it seemed expensive however on looking at other menus in the town it seems that's the price generally so no complaints. The breakfast was excellent. Plenty of juice, coffee and toast and the full English was very good. As far is location is concerned you won't have a sea view as it's tucked behind in a small street but exactly 30 seconds walk around the corner brings you into the bustling harbour so location is good. All in all this was a great stay and we would recommend it highly. As a bonus they also have their own car park at the back of the hotel which is well signposted and will save you a fortune when you look at the prices of the harbour car parks. Thank you very much to all at The Old Ship Hotel for such a great stay. We would certainly return to you again if we come to Padstow!
