Stayed at the ship last weekend for my daughters hen do
What a fantastic house we were a group 20+ aged between 25 to 85
It had everything we needed for a great and comfortable stay would defiantly recommend
To anyone looking for a large party house for a big get together
We took a chef with us to do all the cooking she was thrilled with amenities.
We also (tip from previous tenants) pre-booked a full shop on line from Asda
So no need to even venture out,
Thank you so much Mark from all the hens.

“Massive house, well suited for large groups, excellent value for money!”

Just back from an amazing weekend here to celebrate my 40th. There were 35 of us in total with ages ranging from 15 months to 68! 11 families and 2 dogs! Excellent venue for socialising. We really didn't do very much but eat, drink, chill out, kick back and relax. I've booked many properties for large groups over the years and you won't get a better space for this price! We'd defo visit again!

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed at the Ship Inn for my stag do, I'm sure my best man will also be commenting in the coming days.

There was a group of 20+ and plenty of space so it never felt over crowded. All bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and finished to a great standard. The kitchen has 2 dishwashers, 2 fridge/freezers, large range cooker and everything you'd need to prepare a feast....and to keep the beer cold!

The projector and pool table just added to what was already an amazing place. Watched the football on the large screen, like being in a cinema.

I couldnt recommend this place anymore highly. Not only for stags, but we all agreed it'd be a great place for family reunions, couples etc. A truely special place.

Thanks so much for letting us use this for my last weekend of freedom!

Hey John,
Judging by the number of bottles outside you were sent off in good style! Glad 'The Ship' played its small part in your 'send off' and good luck in your married life!

“Fabulous week with our friends”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We stayed at the Ship Inn from Monday - Friday during the February half term (we travelled up from the South) There were eight families in total (14 adults, 13 children and 1 dog) ages ranging from 8 months - 33 years. All of the children aside from the infants were in the dorm room which they were so pleased with! And there was a room for us all with a few spare. We all sat and ate comfortably together in the kitchen and cooking was easy especially when you have two dishwashers to aid with the clearing up!

The place is enormous over the three floors and we never felt on top of each other, in fact it was hard to believe that 27 of us were staying there! It maintains a warm, homely feel and is exactly that. It was my first experience of renting a 'cottage' and I was so pleased - I'm fussy too! There were a few things that were a bit quirky and could perhaps be changed but it added to the fun of our adventure (namely the cellar room door in room 1 - it doesn't close up properly which I found a bit creepy! The door you use to come into the building doesn't have a handle so someone has to follow you out to the door if you want to leave but not take the keys and some of the door handles downstairs are backwards! That's just being picky but as I say simply became part of our adventure!)

The cleaners did a marvelous job of getting the place turned around on the Monday and the house was immaculate. We all had a great nights sleep and the bed linen is all good quality cotton and feather duvets :0)

I booked through Sykes cottages and their description missed out a few vital bits of info - there was a travel cot and three highchairs! We ended up taking our own as they failed to let me know this information as 'it wasn't listed in the description on their website' The owner however is very helpful and approachable and I'm sure if you had any questions before you go he wouldn't mind you dropping him a text.

We all loved the whole place, the pool table, the projector, the kitchen and the dorm! It was perfect for chilling out and for having a party. The whole converted pub atmosphere is original and the fact that it can house so many makes it even better. The pub is located on the main road which didn't bother any of us, it did used to be a pub afterall.

The location is great for Llandudno, the Zoo and the national park. We were slightly disappointed in the amount of left doggy doo doo down at Colwyn Bay but we just walked our dog elsewhere. There are lots of shops right on the doorstep - Coop and Aldi in walking distance and Llandudno has a huge Asda.

Fantastic place for a BIG celebration! Home from home; I'd definitely go back if we got another chance too :0)

“Ultimate Party Pad!”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I stayed at the Ship Inn for my stag weekend, was blown away by the size of the place! Everybody had an amazing time, plenty of space for everyone to sleep (there were 30 of us). Place was nice and tidy, plus all mod-cons. Colwyn Bay was a real blast too, as was the local town with the castle (pub crawl). Nice taking hangover-recovery trips to the beach too. Pool table, massive projector screen (really is massive), table football, plus huge fridges for drinks kept us amused and happy all weekend. Bedrooms are great too. Would highly recommend!!
