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 Newly Refurbished 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, desk, alarm clock, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. ****Please be aware that some Friday Nights are Disco Nights which is extremely busy, this can also be very noisy but finishes promptly at midnight**** There is a surcharge for pets staying at the hotel, please call for more information. The Ship Hotel in Romney enjoys a heated outside area as an extension of the indoor pub.

The accommodation was as advertised.
The room was clean and functional and suited my purpose. The staff were pleasant, friendly and accommodating. The parking was easy to find and accessible.
Don't stay on a Friday night if you want to sleep before midnight because the disco will make sure you can't.
very close to main road so traffic starts at 5.00/5.30AM. Very little sleep over two nights. Had to get away prompt on the Sunday morning but they had lost the keys for the kitchen so no breakfast. Breakfast on Saturday was cold. I could go on!
