“Even better than before”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

We've visited the Old Ship many times and stayed previously, always enjoyable. After a busy start to the year we wanted a short break and decided to book in again. So glad we did! Great welcome, offers to help carry luggage from car, great food and service from the bar and catering staff, always polite, we honestly couldn't have asked for more. Both of us (and Soxx the collie!) had a perfect time. So thanks to Wray, John, Rob, Kathryn and the lovely waitresses whose names we didn't know. If you ever offer a loyalty bonus scheme, put us on it!

Landed upon this pub on a Saturday lunchtime without booking and there were 15 of us!! The staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us -moving tables and chairs to accommodate us all - and considering how busy they were the service was quite quick. Food and coffee etc was of a good standard too.

A very pleasant early evening meal . Service was excellent and the food was very good . A wide range of locally caught seafood was available and also a decent selection of real ales were on offer . I thoroughly recommend a visit

We stayed for 3 days and had a great time. The room was very comfortable and spacious, great bathroom. The staff were very friendly and the service was great. We had a room at the back above them kitchen and no problem with noise even when a band was playing on the Saturday night.

From the moment I made the booking the staff were exceptionally helpful and efficient, we had an incredibly late check in and the staff could not have been more accommodating. We also initially got lost and the staff were kind enough to come and meet us in the middle of Padstow to direct us to the parking. So Impressed with how lovely everyone was we are already planning a repeat visit and fully intend to stay at The Old Ship again :) The view of the harbour from our room was even enough to get my other half out of bed early, and he is not a morning person!
Loved every second of it. Breakfast was filling with a decent selection, bed was comfy, service spot on. What more could you need.

Stayed one night in I think it was room 12, beautiful room and bathroom. Location is brilliant right in the centre of Padstow, breakfast was lovely and the staff cannot do enough for you. Parking is up a backroad then down an off road path, we had a bit of a problem getting out of the car park as someone had parked a bit too far out on the back road so it was very difficult to get out, but we held our breath and managed to squeeze out. Think the hotel could do with a sign at the entrance to the car park to warn drivers not to park to near the entrance as it is used at all times.

From arrival to departure we had a fantastic time! The sun shone, the walks with the dog along the estuary were fantastic and The Old Ship Hotel exceeded our expectations.
The decor was lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful in every way.
Great steaks and a good selection of wines from the bar.
Our visit was made more special by The manager - Wray Langlord who couldnt be more obliging! Thanks Wray... we will be back in the Spring.
Kind regards

Jon & Tania
