Customer Rating: Mr Gibbs, Belvedere

Customer Rating: Miss Mason, Portsmouth Lovely old hotel, good breakfast, all staff were friendly and helpful and a nice bar with lovely beachfront terrace. Would be happy to stay again.

Customer Rating: Ms Kwok, Isleworth

Customer Rating: Mrs Fisherman, Pinner It was our first experience with Great Little Breaks, just a couple of days to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Old Ship Hotel was very welcoming and comfortable. The bedroom and on-suite was clean very clean and bright with a lovely sea view. The food was very good, and the staff everywhere in the hotel were very helpful.

Customer Rating: Mrs Waldman, Ilford Bit noisy at night but is expected in such a central location. Room was a bit warm

Customer Rating: Mr Lavis, Croydon

Customer Rating: Miss Russell, Essex

Customer Rating: Mr Bucke, Lincoln

Customer Rating: Mrs Bivona, London The hotel recommendation was wonderful. It was a little noisy in the middle of the night. The hotel provided ear plugs but they were of little help. We loved the cream tea and the breakfast that was included with our stay and the staff was very accommodating.

Customer Rating: Mrs BARKER, Tenterden Hotel staff absolutely fab. Couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Hotel being refurbished and our room one of last probably. But overall value for money. Only complaint having upgrade to sea view room means you are at the front, obviously. Brighton is a university city and the clubs turn out at 3am and students walk pass this hotel.
