The Ship Inn
House | 12 bedrooms | sleeps 32
A quaint Victorian inn of impressive size,
A weekend investment that'll feel like winning a prize.
Located very central in a conservation area,
In Wales, quite safe, no chance of malaria!
A big open space for parking you cars,
Just walk on in and out to the bars.
A good seven bathrooms and loads of beds,
For family and friends to lay down their heads.
It's not meant to be posh or for those fond of antiquity,
But more for those with kids, drink wine and act out of stupidity.
Easy access rooms for granny must be seen,
Or a heavenly dormitory for the young and the teens.
3D TVs, surround sound and a massive projector,
You'll feel as important as a movie director.
For those who can there is a fine pool table,
so take on your mates if you think you are able.
With full Sky package including Movies and Sports,
Perfect for relaxing in a onesie or shorts.
There are plenty of castles,
So leave behind your hassles.
Head to the beaches,
Or "Jackies" for Pizzas.
After a full day of fun at any number of places,
There will be buckets of smiles on everyone's faces.
Bring your iPod or iPhone to play your own tunes,
For a party full on, just bring your own balloons.
We are more than pet-friendly with easy care flooring,
With the homely wood stove, the fire will be roaring.
When it comes to bath time you'll find a Jacuzzi,
Pour some champagne or something more boozy!

The North Wales region
Castles by the dozen, Mountains everywhere you look, Beaches ten a penny, Pubs, Restaurants we have the lot! Loads of things to do from a walk on the beach or in the glorious Snowdonia national park to amusement parks, zip lining or indeed a new national watersports centre! For a fully updated list of goings on check the tourist board site.
There really is something for everyone. The only problem is being organised enough to take advantage of it all.
Old Colwyn is a medium sized village in a conservation area. It has all the usual amenities you would expect from petrol stations, supermarkets, local stores, cafes and, of course, pubs!
The larger Colwyn Bay is a couple of miles down the road as is the Victorian gradeur of LLandudno. You are pretty much on the border of the Snowdonia National Park ans all the walks, trains and outdoor activities it holds.

I would personally dismiss the previous review on this property as I found none of what was complained about to be truthful, the complaint regarding cleanliness is not only unjustified but I would reg… More

Letter sent to Sykes Cottages and duly passed on to the owner:We have now returned from our week away in the Ship Inn in Old Colwyn and although I have never felt the need to complain about a holiday … More
Firstly may I say I am deeply saddened that you did not enjoy your stay at 'The Ship' as most every other group has done. I don't feel it is in anyones' interest to respond to each individual issue (although I did to Sykes). I do not for one instance claim 'The Ship' is perfect. It is not. Nor is my home, nor I guess the home of most people, especially those that are hundreds of years old, 12 bedroomed and 6000+ sq ft and let to groups EVERY week. Had I been contacted about any of these issues DURING the tenancy I would certainly have been able to sort easily, mostly over the phone. This list was provided only HAVING LEFT the property requesting compensation. Due to a two week holiday in the USA I had two groups in AFTER this but BEFORE I got to look at this list of complaints and they gave 5* reports and identified NONE of the issues identified here. I take 'The Ship' itself and the welfare of its guests seriously and I guess it is down to each reader to assess the magnitude of each of the issues for themselves and judge it against the property as a whole which, being hundreds of years old is not PERFECT but is still ONE HELL OF A PLACE to get together with friends and family.

Thank you so much for taking the effort to review the Ship and again thank you for your understanding about the failure of the projector. I have a new one in there now and indeed have the original back as a back up so hopefully better prepared for the future. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future if you fancy a re-visit!
