Arrived and found room was in attic...very steep stairwell and very low ceiling...hair brushing ceiling.
Noisy as windows had to be kept open due to hot weather...Had to make strenuous efforts to book an evening meal...eventually served at 8.45pm. Had breakfast next morning then Inn closed completely..no food no bar...all areas locked off except access to rooms...no explanation given. Had to use other facilities...could have stayed at home and done same...not what I expected at all. Booked out by drop off for keys on Monday.
The room was an attic room with very very low headroom making it impossible for my husband to stand up straight & had to spend all of his time in there crouched over therefore he was very uncomfortable.
The bath was under the eaves so taking a shower was impossible unless you sat in the bath. The room was clean but very claustrophobic due to the lack of walking space. We woke early & left
accommodaton and Friday meal excellent , pity about food service on Saturday
arriving, were shown to a spacious comfortable room.
Judicious use of spare duvets and blankets ensured a comfortable sleep. Friday evening's meal of fresh fish in excellent batter very good indeed, accompanied by live jazz. Saturday evening was a different matter. Booked on Friday evening for Saturday's steak night and asked for sirloin. Arrived in the bar for a drink at 7.30, on Saturday, moved over to other bar where food was served but there was no reserved table. Eventually established we had ordered steaks, the wine (very good) arrived. half the bottle later no food, then informed at 8.30 there was no sirloin but was rump ok and 'we were next'. by 9pm nothing had arrived the wine was gone, so we left. Not impressed.
The Ship Inn
Warm welcome from a helpful young chap but the room was very cold and, frankly, very tired.
The bed was without a doubt the most lumpy mattress I have ever experienced - you could feel every spring. Booked through LateRooms who show the hotel as 4 star and 4 Green Lights; that is a gross exaggeration. I would suggest that 2* and 2 Green Lights is a much more accurate description and grading
good for overnight stop to Channel Tunnel
Very friendly welcome and efficient check in.
Room large and functional. Beds comfy, ensuite cramped but all working.
Basic with history!
Fine for a one night business stop over.
Room was a bit on the basic side and bright yellow walls not really my thing... But the bedding, towels were all clean and decent Tea/Coffee selection in room.
Above a pub so good to mingle if time to waste in the evening. Breakfast was outstanding for only £5!
Really enjoyed staying here while we travelled around the area to Dover, Hastings, Leeds Castle etc.
The service was great, food great and rooms nice and quaint.
Great Alternative to Chain Hotel
Excellent Pub / Inn.
Some nice beers, excellent pub food, and a great freshly cooked breakfast.
very basic would not stay again
