Staff staff staff breakfast decor
Room small bathroom floor always wet as leaked room 5
Wonderful pub with a great atmosphere. Really excellent staff who are very friendly. Great breakfast and the dinner looked good too, although didn't eat there. Great location in a beautiful town. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Room Comfy bed Dog friendliness Interesting menu Excellent staff
bar very busy on Saturday night, though it is a popular pub so I guess this should be expected.
great location great staff great breakfast
The bed, decor of the room, the Manager (Theo's) enthusiasm and clear dedication to customer service, the cocktails and scrabble in the pub! Also, the included breakfast was a menu and buffet and was great. Very good value all up, in a lovely town. Highly recommended.
The free wifi in room 3 was intermittent/hard to connect with. No problems with the wifi in the pub though.
Great Location and great food. Would recommend the restaurant.
The atmosphere of this cosy inn was very homely and welcoming and the decor was tasteful but fun. Bed so comfortable with a proper down filled quilt and pillows. Very good to find the toiletries were cruelty free and that vegetarian sausages were available with the excellent breakfast. All staff were very friendly and helpful.
I thought £3 for a side order of mash was unacceptable, so we had dinner elsewhere.
Excellent breakfast, location, friendly staff
Bathroom difficult to negotiate. Non slip mat in bath would have been safer which was reported to staff. Sound insulation between rooms not too good!
Free bikes available on request. Great breakfast. Also a nice place to have dinner. We'd definitely stay here again.
Service a bit slow at breakfast but only a minor grumble.
Really friendly staff make you feel most welcome. Would not hesitate to book again.
Parking can be a problem.
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. An excellent breakfast in the morning also. The room for what we paid was very good value for money.
The food was delicious, both the included breakfast and dinner in the evening. The staff were welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spacious and quirky, and had everything we needed. Would definitely go again, and recommend to others
Sofas weren't very comfortable, but there were plenty of other seats.
The communal carpet in the hallways. It needs to be changed as it let down the whole look of the hotel.
Friendly & helpful staff, good food, comfortable room, nice atmosphere
Pricey food & drinks
Theo and his team were fantastic. The rooms were comfortable and homely. The breakfast was amazing!!
A wonderful place to stay. Staff can't do enough for you, very friendly and polite. Room was immaculate, very clean and comfortable. Lovely breakfast!
There was nothing I didn't like.
customer service of the Staff and food served was just fantastic.
We booked a bit of an adhoc night away at the Ship. I'm a designer so I have a good eye for detail and I'm so glad I booked here! Staff were welcoming and friendly, room was spotless and nicely designed (boutique!) with fluffy towels and a personalised stick of rock. Shower was lovely and hot with Burt's Bees toiletries (<3!). There is also a hairdryer! (except I forgot my hairbrush!) Room 4 was quiet and was on the street. We found some free parking nearby (shh!) Lots of choice at breakfast, their homemade muesli was amazeballs and I blimmin' forgot to buy some when we left! Freshly squeezed juices and eggs royale and cutesy mini milk bottles! Would rush back in a heartbeat!
I didn't like that we caved in and explored around town for dinner when we should have just stayed at The Ship!! Ate at Simply Italian instead and I didn't like it! Boo! One teeny tiny niggle was that someone forgot to replenish the tea supplies in the room- only 2 uht milk cartons and no normal tea (drank Earl Grey out of desperation). I'm sure if I could have been that bothered to ask they would have happily given us a few extras though!
How spacious the room was
the sound of crashing bottles being emptied from the next door premises
We were very happy with our experience the room was clean, friendly staff and yummy breakfast (and I'm a bit difficult but it was not a problem :) )
We would defiantly stay again but we would ask for a different room only because we had the kitchen extractor fan outside out window which was very loud. (Room 6)
Comfortable, cheerful rooms, good attention to detail, rooms clean and well made up each day. Attentive staff. Great breakfast menu included for the price of the room. Excellent place if you are looking for casual lodgings in rye.
Excellent breakfast Friendly staff Bikes to borrow free
Street cleaning machine very noisy early in the morning,obviously not the fault of the pub.
You really feel like you are on a ship. Everything was comfortable the free bike was great because we used it to ride to the beach and the staff and all were helpful with every request. the wooms were small but cozy and the complementary breakfast was phenomenal
the bed creaked, our shower drain was clogged at first but within an hour a plumber came and fixed it.
Central location. Friendly staff excellent breakfast
We got there early but couldn't check In we had our dog with us which is a King Charles which we paid extra for but they did not provide anything extra it's a good job we took our own dishes and it was so hot we couldn't sleep and it smelt of dogs that's why we checked out early because I couldn't eat breakfast there then the staff ran me and was going to charge me for a know show even though we checked in and stayed there. I was a lot of money £105.00 for the night it was not worth anywhere near that amount
