covid-19 latest information

Lockdown lowdown...

In line with the current government guidelines, we are open until 26th December 2020. From 27th December 2020 we will offer rooms on a 'room only' basis (no breakfast) for key workers only. Please email hello@mundesley-ship.co.uk, call us on 01263 722671 or book online.


what next?

We all hope this time will pass swiftly, and that you'll be able to return soon. If you would like to book a stay, all bookings are flexible and can be rescheduled if you need to. If you are thinking about making a booking for spring or summer, it's best to reserve your room soon. We are a small boutique restaurant with rooms with just 7 beautiful bedrooms. We experienced quite an unprecedented flurry after the last lockdown!

If you have a booking that is affected by this temporary pause, please do bear with us, we willl be in touch. It may be that our replies are a little slower than usual as our small team take on the difficult task of rescheduling stays. It may be tempting to cancel your booking; but please do consider whether you can reschedule rather than cancelling. There are no penalties and your support means the world to small independent hotels like ours.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for your support.

Take care and stay safe!

For when we reopen...

We've always been good at staying 'ship-shape'(!) and now we're adjusting to new ways of doing things so that our care is more visible than ever, while ensuring you have the time and space to be at your happiest. One important point to note is that we are not currently servicing rooms mid-stay; this helps to ensure that your space is your own - completely untouched and undisturbed - throughout your time with us. If you require any fresh towels, toiletries and condiments please let the us know at breakfast. If you would like us to, we can service your bedroom but kindly request that you remove your belongings first (for deep cleaning purposes, we use a sanitation light but this can cause damage).

We have developed a SEVEN POINT PLAN to help you understand some of the steps we have put in place.

flexible cancellation policy

It's fair to say: we're in unusual times. It's understandable if you are feeling concerned or anxious about making bookings in the future. We are here to take bookings and we want to reassure you that they can be made risk-free. If you feel like you need to escape for a short break to reconnect and indulge, you can make a booking and cancel if you need to; please just allow 48 hours' notice.


Book here on our website for free breakfast!

book with confidence

Our cancellation policy allows you to book now, and pay nothing until you check out (direct bookings only). If you can't make it, you change your mind, or situations change beyond our control, you can cancel - please just allow 48 hours' notice. Please email any booking enquiries: hello@mundesley-ship.co.uk .

We genuinely appreciate your support. If you need to cancel your stay, we will also offer you the chance to reschedule. We'll be honest: the hospitality industry has been hit hard by this crisis, but with your support, we'll bounce back. Please consider rescheduling rather than cancelling.

Thank you :)

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us.

"100% the best pub around"
A huge well done to all the team at The Ship Inn for making us all feel so safe on Saturday and it was such a lovely thing to know that we was the 1st pint that was pulled in 3 and half months. All the staff are lovely, they kept their customers in order but in a friendly way. Living in the local area, you are 100% the best pub around and we can't wait to come back on a regular basis. Katrina, Facebook, 6th July

What can say about the Ship inn except 'Wow'?
First trip to a pub in over 100 days and what can say about the Ship inn except 'Wow'? The measures in place give confidence and are easy to follow. The staff are excellent and all have PPE. The Sunday roast we had today was delicious. Thank you and we will see you again very very soon. James, Facebook, 6th July

"The Ship looks amazing"
