About the hotel
The Original Ship was built of mainly ship timber brought from the old port of New Romney. The first recorded keeper is one Thomas Banne, who is described as an "ostler" of the parish of Romney. The inn is mentioned in the will of Samuel Dunstare in1579.
In 1662 it is recorded that the inn underwent extensive alteration, the thatch, wattle and daub was removed in part and replaced with tiles and bricks. The present facade was erected in 1728. At the height of the coaching era of the mid to late eighteenth century, The Ship was an established coach halt being situated on the main Rye to Dover route, and is mentioned as a compulsory stop in the timetable of 1802. More recently In the 20th century the cellar was also used as a public air-raid shelter in World War II. The en suite rooms are comfortably furnished and pleasantly decorated, some rooms are small, with low doors, which you would expect from a 500 year old buliding. All room have a wireless internet, tea & coffee making facilities and a flat screen television with freeview and DVD Player, with other useful facilities such as a trouser press, desk, alarm clock and hairdryer.

A mixed experience!
The twin-bedded room was cramped and the en-suite the tiniest we have ever had.
However, everything was very clean and tidy. We were disappointed with the breakfast as only three cereals offered and the bacon had been cooked earlier and re-heated. The evening meal we had at the hotel was fine.
I had a twin room,which was nicely decorated, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was great.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, would definately stay again!!!!
