We had a wonderful stay in Port Isaac at the Slipway Hotel. Rooms are not large, however they are clean and had everything we needed. The location is perfect, staff very friendly and helpful. The location on the plus side is also a negative, it means when the workers arrive at the harbour early in the morning, they are right... More

Our room with a sea view unfortunately was ruined by the noise from the bar - shouting, swearing, glasses smashing until midnight. The room was tiny but this would have been ok if the decor had been better. The curtains were hanging off the rail, there was no coffee in the room, no tissues, only cheap biscuits. The hotel decor... More

we went to the Slipway for a short break of 3 nights. The situation of the hotel is idyllic, to wander across to the bay with your morning coffee and watch the working life of the fishing harbour. Breakfast was delicious whatever you chose. 'Outlaws' for supper one evening & the slipway for fresh crab the next - who could... More

I went to Pt Isaac from London 10 July to the 12 July and after being in the UK and busy London by myself it was a much needed R and R. Stayed and the Slipway Hotel and Resturant and loved every it of my stay. My room was so much bigger than my room in Lonson, it was clean... More

We arrived at the Slipway Hotel after enduring a long flight from Canada, followed by two trains from Gatwick, then a cab ride from Bodmin Parkway station and upon arrival, 'were greeted by "Chris" who cheerfully took my wife's bag up the stairs and showed us to our room (room #1 - the best view with an outside deck, complete...

This hotel was originally built in the 15th century and does not have all the space and modern conveniences that many people want in a hotel. However, it has the charm and feel of a small hotel in a small fishing village because that is what it is. The floor in our sea front room sloped a little along one... More

Looking for a place directly in, not nearby, Port Isaac, we chose this hotel online. We were happy with our choice although I still think the price is about twice as much as it should be. We visited Port Isaac primarily to get a feel of the town where the Doc Martin TV show is shot. We were not disappointed... More

What a let-down! We slotted in a couple of nights at the Slipway during our recent holiday and could not have been more disappointed. None of the charm and class portrayed by its website, indeed the very opposite. The hotel is shabby, the restaurant unappealing, the room (No 4) tiny ( to describe it as a double room is pushing...

My husband and I stayed here over the Bank Holiday Weekend as a last minute get away. All the staff were very polite and helpful. We stayed in the room above the kitchen Room 2 I believe it was. Clean and tidy with a nice view from the window overlooking the sea and part of the town. Room service can... More
