The Ship is a rambling hotel, quite quirky. Good sized room, well lit, laminate floor, no carpet, plenty of drawer space ,well decorated and clean but a big hard bed, 2 singles joined together, and terrible pillows, I had two very poor night’s sleep. There is no air conditioning, other than opening the window, not so good on a windy night.
The shower over the bath was vet poor, only delivered just warm water in a weak flow, partly through the leaks from the joint at shower head. The disabled assistance bars next to the toilet are stuck to wall with soviet style mismatching bolts. No wash cloth supplied and the towels are at other side of wide bathroom, nowhere to put them more convenient for stepping out of shower. The cool water was reported and it was somewhat better the next morning, though no offer of compensation was made. There is an emergency call switch just next to light switch, very poor positioning. I managed to set this off and luckily had spotted where the re set button was in bathroom the night before. There are twin toilet roll holders hanging off wall at the same jaunty angle
Breakfast is a mixture of help yourself buffet and a table service for the cooked food.
£100 per night shouldn’t raise expectations too high, “we’re not the Ritz” as the receptionist said to me. less
