We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time- the room was lovely, brilliant breakfast menu and specials board. Makes a great change from your average B'n'B!! The landlord was really friendly, great service and atmosphere. Would go again and definitely recommend!!

We had a lovely stay here. The quaint old inn was superbly located on the harbour front near the naval college and had free parking out of season. The room was comfortable and clean. I was worried about there being dog hair in the room as i'm allergic but this wasnt the case although you will need an antihystamine for...

Spent 3 nights in this great B&B in March '17. Kevin and Michelle are wonderful hosts and provide their guests with a great service and great (inexpensive) food. The rooms are modern, immaculately clean and comfortable. The hotel is located 30-40 yards from the river so I had a spectacular view from my bedroom. An excellent full English breakfast is...

It used to be pizzas and steak but now that Michelle has taken over the kitchen there is a range of tapas, pies and speciality breakfasts. All are homemade - I'm usually really sceptical about places claiming this but it's true, right down to the pie pastry! We tried the patatas bravas, salt 'n' pepper squid, and beef and ale...

The most wonderful little pub, the most amazing homemade pies ever and apparently they're doing tapas now as well so we will be back for that!! Loved it. It's positioned just up from the river front, so after a stroll it's in the prime location for a few drinks.

Hi Lottie Really glad you enjoyed Michelle's home made pies - the tapas is going down a storm. Lots of new stuff planned for the menu, and as it will be constantly changing there will always be something to surprise you. See you soon. Kev & Michelle

I stayed here for three nights through the week and cannot fault the accommodation. Kevin and his team were friendly and eager to help. Breakfast was fantastic. Rooms on the first floor get some noise from the bar which is to be expected but it certainly wasn't excessive and didn't go on late.

We spent two nights at The Ship in Dock and we loved it. Stayed in room 3 which has a fantastic view of the river Dart. If im right, all rooms have a fabulous view.

I stayed 3 nights here on business. There are 4 rooms above a smal 2 rooml pub. I found a very clean bedroom and shower room (there are rooms with baths) that was very comfortably. The bed envelopes you in crisp cotton sheets and duvet. There is the normal tea and coffee selection with bottled waters and even a mint...

A flying visit to the West Country and the lovely town of Dartmouth made all the better by a great stay at the Ship in Dock.

Another short break at the Ship in Dock saw us notice the subtle yet pleasing improvements throughout the pub and rooms. The warm welcome we receive from Kevin and Michelle is more as friends than guests and helps to make our stay even more enjoyable. Breakfast is hearty and a great way of starting the day and enjoy a good...
