Situated in a conservation area in the lovely village of Gatehouse of Fleet, the Ship is surrounded by beautiful countryside, close to the coast and on the edge of the magnificent Galloway Forest Park with its lochs, forest trails and wildlife.

Established in 1794 this historic hotel boasts a 4 star Scottish Tourist Board rating and is the perfect base for a relaxing break in beautiful Galloway in the South West of Scotland. You are always assured of a friendly welcome, delicious home cooked breakfasts, an extensive drinks selection and a comfortable bed at the Ship Inn in Gatehouse of Fleet.

For larger parties who wish to book all ten bedrooms, we can offer exclusive use of the Inn. If you would like to reserve the Inn on this basis, please call us on 01557 814217 or 0771 341 2030.


Recharge your Batteries

After a day out exploring all that Galloway has to offer, the Ship Inn is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries ready for the next day.

Our aim is to offer our guests the ultimate getaway and we are always on hand should you need anything to make your stay more enjoyable.

The Ship Inn offers a cosy public bar with a large beer garden backing onto the river Fleet. We even have palm trees thanks to the Gulf Stream, which gives Galloway its wonderfully mild climate.

Our bedrooms are all equipped with internet enabled Smart TVs and there is complimentary WiFi available throughout the Inn.


Perfect for Families

Children are very welcome at The Ship Inn, with our superior family room providing plenty space for a family of four. We have a selection of toys, and a kiddies corner in the guest lounge, complete with television, toys and games.

We have two suites classified as dog friendly, they are finished to the same high standard but just let us know if you would like to bring along your four legged friend so we can try to fit you in.

Fantastic owners who went out of their way to make our stay perfect. Rooms large and very clean with Smart TVs. Food lovely.
