We only stayed for one night, whilst doing a whistle stop tour of Devon. Kevin, the owner was a great host. The locals are very friendly too. Our room overlooked the river Dart, although the view is likely to be compromised soon by nearby building work. The room was clean, quiet and the bed was king size and super comfy....

The Ship in Dock is a B&B located above a pub in Dartmouth. The host, Kevin, was ever so helpful and friendly. The B&B is in need or repair (planned for this winter) but the rooms are clean and quiet. It is located a few minutes from town center, restaurants and shopping. The pizzas served at the pub are delicious....

Booked for two nights managed one only, had to leave this terrible , unclean tip of a hotel, my advise for any one would avoid this Inn, it was most probably in better condition in 1657 when it first opened. The new owner needs to spend some time cleaning the rooms and staircase or even pop into some of his...

Obviously I was disappointed to hear of your poor experience at the Ship in Dock Inn, and I take extremely seriously your comments. You quite rightly point out that the stair carpet is now beyond its life, and requires attention - which is why we have a new carpet on order that will be installed in the next few weeks....

We recently spent a week at the Ship In Dock Inn and happy to say it was a great time. The Hotel is easy to find, the rooms very clean and bed very comfortable. Bathroom was large and very good in our room (#1) and the breakfasts were excellent. Room size is on the smaller end compared to Australia, but...

After continuous excellent pizzas and home delivery by the former owner Jim Brent we decided to continue to support this local business but they have now lost our support. On one previous occasion we had to wait an hour and 45 minutes for delivery of two pizzas, but we decided it may have been busy so to give them another...

We were obviously disappointed to hear of your poor experiences since we took over from Jim, but the truth is hardly anything has changed about the team cooking or delivering the food.

We stayed at this hotel over bank holiday weekend, we left it until fairly late to book and knew we wanted to stay in Dartmouth and this was one of the few properties with availability. We found the room to be super comfortable and surprisingly quiet (we didn't hear any noise from the pub at all) and breakfast was fabulous....

Booked through the internet, the views from the rooms sold it to me. When we got there the place was a lot smaller than I expected. When shown the room, the view got me again.

We stayed at this hotel last week. We located the hotel easily and it was in a great location, near the harbour and the town. The hotel provides a parking permit for a local car park so park up outside the hotel unload and then park the car. The room is basic but adequate considering the amount of time you'd...

Good lager, fantastic pizzas and friendly service. A small, traditional coastal pub with wall-to-wall Naval and maritime memorabilia and pictures. Very cosy and typically English. Good service and outside seating just a stones throw from the water. Would definitely reccomend. Oh, and they deliver onto the nearby Naval college, if you can't be bothered to travel down!
