I was very pleasantly surprised by the Ship. For £47 bed and breakfast I wasn't expecting too much. However, I had a cosy yet comfortable double room, tv with free view, tea/coffee and a lovely en suite bath/shower. The bar/restaurant area is pleasant with a few intimate corners. Candles on the tables and of course views of north wales over...

I have been wanting to take the in-laws for lunch at The Ship. I booked a table for midday and we were one of the first in. The place soon filled up. Service is a little slow and had to ask for menus although staff walked past a few times. The staff were generally friendly. We ordered steak pie, game...

This hotel is very popular. The food was hot tasty and the staff and service excellent. We stayed in the Lady Hamilton four poster room which was clean and had a fantastic window seat with a view over the estuary. A lovely breakfast with plenty of choice.

Went back to visit Parkgate after many years. The area still the same except that the sealine is all silted up. Not much activity Visited the Ship for lunch. Very nice and service good. I think they do a BnB. Seems to be a good stopover enroute.

I went for a 'double date' to the ship with my partner Phillip and our close friend Matthew and his date also called Matthew. We enjoyed a very nice meal with fantastic wine to accompany, recommended by Ellie Clarke. The service from Ellie was great, she was ever so polite to us all evening. We had a great night!

The hotel has a lovely feel to it. We were in a room without a view, sadly but it was beautifully appointed. The staff were lovely (and tried to be helpful). I loved the creaky floorboards and all the interesting art work, posters and antiques all over the place. The food was fab too. Breakfast was brilliant and set us...

Really good pub food and a nice chatty atmosphere. I really enjoyed and recommend the steak and ale pie. Drinks fairly priced considering how much the cost of alcohol goes up each year. The staff were lovely and friendly.

What a lovely place, great views, good service, so clean and what a pleasant atmosphere. Accommodation seems reasonably priced. Our only regret is that we weren't staying and having a meal. Hope to return to rectify that.
