Score from 238 reviews Superb
Convenient location on sea front. Managed to park in side street so not too far to carry luggage.Used the bus to pop into Folkestone, a frequent service. Minutes from Eurotunnel and therefore an ideal overnight stop but would also be a pleasant base to explore the region.
Slightly disappointed with evening meal, we both ordered the fish and chips. However very pleasant dining room and reasonably priced wine.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent dinner and breakfast. Good shower in room. Lovely sea view.
We stayed in the top floor rooms. A lovely spacious suite - the old attic of the cottage, grat sea views. Comfy bed, tv in bedroom and in sitting room - good tv reception. Wifi was good. Good breakfast too.
Great location, right by the esplanade Traditional pub with great ales A separate restaurant with a good selection of food and wines - our steak at dinner was delicious, as was the full English breakfast Accommodation is separate in the cottage next door, so nice a quiet.
Great food, great beer, great service, totally clean, welcoming. Excellent.
Delightful landlady Wendy, spacious and extremely clean accommodation, perfect breakfast with high quality and tasty produce, the beach on your doorstep, very comfortable bed, fresh milk and soft drinks in the fridge a lovely touch.
Parking possible directly outside the accommodation, but on our arrival no spaces so had to carry luggage a fair way from the high street; lot of narrow stairs to the to the Channel Suite; no coffee table in living room so nowhere to put cups; suite windows could be cleaner.
nice room friendly staff great views from the restaurant, outside deck and room.
the old part of the inn was in need of some TLC and the food was a bit exspensive.
The Location, The Food, The Room, The Welcome. When we walked into the pub our first impression was "Hmmm", but then remembered it is a very old and popular inn. Right on the seafront, we had the Seaview room and the views were excellent (if its stormy weather they could possibly be a bit daunting) the room is extremely comfortable, the bed even more so. We ate in the restaurant on our first night and the food was excellent quality, well cooked and presented. Beakfasts were very good as well (though would prefer full sausages to chipolata's). Staff and hosts were always efficient, very pleasant and accomodating. We would definitely return here when we were staying in the area.
Parking can be a bit of a problem, though there is a public car park about 150 meteres away. To get to the rooms you have to go outside the building and around to the rear, okay in fine weather, if it had been raining it wouldn't have been so good.
Great views from bedroom and restaurant. Good choice for breakfast and the option of using the restaurant for evening meals with a varied menu.
Room very comfortable. Ate in the restaurant in the evening very good menu and food excellent. The staff were most helpful and friendly.
The staff were friendly and Wendy the host was fantastic. Overlooking the sea. The restaurant served excellent food and the rooms.were first class.
Just the general look of the property but don't let that put you off. You will be pleasantly surprised.
Great, relaxing and pleasant seafront location in preparation for a journey via Eurotunnel. Very comfortable, sea view and good food.
Charming little real ale pub with lovely hosts. Our room was on the top of the house with wonderful views of the beach and sea. Excellent cooks in the kitchen. Very friendly atmosphere.
sea view was brilliant, food excellent, real pub atmosphere
no parking space WIFI
Friendly welcome, good food, local ales, excellent location right on the beach.
The Ship has no car park but there are plenty of places to park nearby.
Great view on sea front. Very friendly atmosphere and staff
the lady, Wendy assuming owner or manager was very kind, hospitable and caring. It was for wedding anniversary for us and certainly enjoyable with great location and cleanliness of the room as well as good standard of accommodation. On a clear and bright day it could be much more enjoyable. Great service and great location. Thank you Ship inn management
The location was excellent and Wendy and her husband have put a lot of love and effort into making this a very charming place to stay.
The 'skinny' sausages served at breakfast
The room The view
The spacious accommodation Great sea views Location of restaurant for breakfast (& evening meal) Tasty breakfast
location was amazing, lovely sea views, great breakfast, friendly staff
nothing, it was all good
Pretty room, tea making facilities good food and a lovely landlady who went out of her way to find us a parking space
Lousy HiFi and street parking
Loved the room on the top floor, had a lounge and bedroom, comfortable bed with quality linen, modern wet room with rain shower, just perfect. Biggest surprise was the resteraunt, very contemporary with great sea front views. Try the Skate Wing for a fab evening meal or the crab and prawn salad at lunch. We will definitely return.
Car parking could be difficult , but we were lucky on this occasion
This is a small traditional pub with a good bar atmosphere and a newly built restaurant area with wonderful views over the sea. The food was good and the staff, local and friendly. The owners could not have been more welcoming.
The corridor to the lodging area was a bit tatty. My room was on the second floor with a lovely view from a large velux window over the bay.
