If you need to stay right in Padstow this is a good location-but you need to choose your room carefully if you want any sleep in high season- remember this is a pub with rooms .

Any rooms at the back are just fine as this is a solid old building and quite soundproof but the ones at the front above the bar and the outside area could be noisy on hot nights when people are outside.
The rooms are simple and basic but there is all you need for a short stopover . The usual tv etc good tea making facilities - pristine white comfortable bed- The shower cubicle was good - powerful shower - bring your own large bar of soap though! The towels were very white and fluffy .

Above all the place is very clean and the staff are always to be seen polishing and cleaning.

The breakfast was mediocre - not quality food and nothing particularly fresh like yogurt or fruit - tinned and pre packed- and the time window very short 8.30-9.30 am which meant everyone was in at the same time so service was a bit slow. But we were in no rush and we appreciate the main business of the day is the pub and meals so no real need for long breakfast service hours.

The staff seemed to be working very hard and were cheerful and helpful.

Overall it was overpriced for the quality but its location and being in the peak season was what we were paying for and they charged no more than any other centrally located accommodation - so on balance we would return .
And bizarrely they have an exceptional collection of dinky toys in the dining area!

I regularly read trip advisor reviews before choosing a hotel, restaurant etc and never take note of the negative or slightly critical reviews. "Bit too expensive" - please then tell me where you can stay in Padstow for less and get the level of service, food etc that you get at the Old Ship?. It's Padstow for crying out loud, if you want to pay a mediocre price for a meal, there are places, but you will get a mediocre meal. The staff at the OId Ship are great, always helpful, friendly and nothing was too much for them. Ideal location, FREE parking, comfortable room, (no9), breakfast to die for, good atmosphere. Would not look further than the Old Ship if we go to Cornwall again.

This is a great place to sit outside, under the canopy , while enjoying a drink and bite to eat and just chilling. We always call in here when we stay in Padstow and take time to relax. The menu is varied with some excellent specials like lobster - great for a holiday treat. The meat and cheese platters are also good, especially if you don't want anything too heavy to eat. All in all a lovely pub with great food.

a vrey cozy hotel, a little bit more expensive than I had in mind, but then all the hotels around the area have the same price. I'd come back again hereThe location is excelent (2 min away from the harbour and 1min to the closest 2 pasty and icecream shops)
The breakfast was great (included in the price).

It's a "to recommend" hotel!

Room Tip: First floor with view to the rear of the hotel are the ideal ones. Though the seagulls are noisy anywhere!

Very good location, we didn't try the food because the kitchen was closed at 9 pm, but the menu looked very interesting.
The room was nice but quite small. The bathroom was basic and tiled with ugly cheap dark beige tiles. The mirror above the sink looked very very cheap too. £105.00 per night is a bit too expensive.
They accept dogs
