Gatehouse of Fleet

On 15th July we will most likely re-open to visitors and we look forward to welcoming you back. For any future bookings please please please book direct through this website as its the guaranteed cheapest, most flexible option with the best cancellation policy. Booking.com and Expedia et al are the biggest single reason why the UK hospitality sector is struggling and the recent crisis just makes this worse – Please think of all of us including yourselves when making a booking.

Having refurbished the hotel just before lockdown we are now keen to see as many guests as we can safely accommodate. We worked with industry bodies and the Scottish Government to mitigate risks from viral transmission for key workers currently staying – the health and safety of guests and our staff remains paramount.

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.

Our aim is to offer our guests the ultimate getaway and to make your stay enjoyable.

The Ship Inn offers a cosy public bar and restaurant 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.


As at February 2020 we have just finished upgrading our bathrooms with Villeroy & Boch sanitary-ware while the rooms themselves have new furnishings and carpets. Please click on the accommodation tab to view room images, alternatively when you choose your room through our booking portal you can view each room before you book.

“Lots of different teas and coffees in the room. And a coffee maker with pods. It was quiet even though it faced a road, perfect.”

“We had visited the Ship Inn several times in the past when it was comfortable pub selling delicious bar food. It has now been transformed into a chic, modern hotel, the former bar area now housing the wonderful No 1 Fleet Street restaurant.”

A warm welcome by Jonathan and Sarah was received on our third visit… I’m sure we will return next year.


Check in handled very well and showed up to room. Excellent room which was spotless and had all we could possibly need.
