The Ship Hotel

Generally a good hotel.

Only let down was the service at breakfast the next morning. Waited 45 minutes for breakfast as waitress forgot to put in our order with the kitchen. She didn't seem overly bothered that we had to wait this length of time. When I eventually got the breakfast it was no better than a typical breakfast anywhere else. (Considering it had been hyped up enormously!)Other than that can't have any complaints on the comfort of the hotel.

Lovely Stay

I've dined many times at the hotel , so knew how lovely it was ; this was the first time I have stayed there.

It's now even better than ever food and accommodation wise since the refurbishment they've undertaken during the last year, easily the best hotel in Chichester.
