Friendly welcome and service. Comfortable smallish room (Church view-but also a busy road..). Good shower. Some 'fussy' furnishings. Breakfast was poor: no fruit or yoghurts, very few cereals; little choice of bread. Cooked part saved the day! Overall, perfectly ok for a night or two. But hotel needs to sharpen up its act for the price.

Friendly stay in a period hotel.
An ancient inn so interesting, quirky, but quite small room. There was a big cupboard for clothes and suitcase, but once we put the 6 huge cushions and large bedspread in it there was no room left for clothes. Reducing the number of cushions or replacing the bedside tables with bedside chests would improve storage space. It was nice to have a bath and a shower, but there were no hooks on which to hang clothes while using them. There was no shelf space in the bathroom so we had to balance toiletries precariously on the back of the toilet. Rather risky. A shelf by the mirror would be very helpful. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food for breakfast and evening meals was excellent, despite the breakfast buffet being reduced by Covid restrictions.

Family seaside break
Friendly welcome and easy check in. Large comfy and clean room for family stay. Made an ideal base for our short break. Would definitely return. Also great for meals

Quaint and lovely B&B
The Ship Inn was clean, with hand sanitizer available everywhere. Staff were very respectful towards Covid measures and always checked if we wanted our room cleaned (or if we needed anything). The downstairs dining/pub was cosy. The pub food was delicious, and the English breakfast in the morning was a great way to start the day. The room was small, but had everything we needed. The best part of the experience were the friendly hotel staff. Highly recommend a stay here! If we ever find ourselves in Dymchurch again, we'll definitely be staying here again. :)
