The Ship Hotel Information


The Original Ship was built of mainly ship timber brought from the old port of New Romney. The first recorded keeper is one Thomas Banne, who is described as an "ostler" of the parish of Romney. The inn is mentioned in the will of Samuel Dunstare in1579. In 1662 it is recorded that the inn underwent extensive alteration, the thatch, wattle and daub was removed in part and replaced with tiles and bricks. The present facade was erected in 1728. At the height of the coaching era of the mid to late eighteenth century, The Ship was an established coach halt being situated on the main Rye to Dover route, and is mentioned as a compulsory stop in the timetable of 1802. More recently In the 20th century the cellar was also used as a public air-raid shelter in World War II. The Newly Refurbished En Suite rooms are comfortably furnished and pleasantly decorated, some rooms are small, with low doors, which you would expect from a 500 year old buliding. All room have a wireless internet, tea & coffee making facilities and a flat screen television with freeview and DVD Player, with other useful facilities such as, desk, alarm clock, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. ****Please be aware that some Friday Nights are Disco Nights which is extremely busy, this can also be very noisy but finishes promptly at midnight**** There is a surcharge for pets staying at the hotel, please call for more information. The Ship Hotel in Romney enjoys a heated outside area as an extension of the indoor pub. There is a conservatory area for a more sheltered drink, as well as the main pub and lounge area - which proudly displays some original features, such as the brick fireplace - and a lovely restaurant that doubles as a large function room. Visitors are warmly welcomed, and we are sure that you will enjoy your stay with us.
