We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel, our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and nice! We ate in the hotel restaurant which was quite surprising! We were expecting perhaps 'pub grub', but we got a lot more! Well presented and delicious restaurant food! Although, port issac itself is very pretty, but nothing to really... More

We'd endured quite a long walk from the main car park into the village, and felt in need of food and something to drink. Port Isaac is a lovely village with quite a few restaurants. We opted for the Slipway because it was on the harbour. We'd already eaten a fair amount of fish during our holiday thus far, so... More

They're taking advantage of the Doc Martin thing in such a shameless way that is hard to believe: £150 per night for a 2m x 3m double room where you can hardly move or put your luggage anywhere! And they didn't even clean the carpet or replace the wet towels for the 3 days of our stay!! It is indeed... More

After seeing the show Doc Martin we just had to come and see this pictures s fishing port. The Hotel was old but romantic, the food was very good, the views around Port Isaac are out of this world with old building and narrow roads with just enough room for one car. You don't an alarm clock because the seagulls... More

Brilliant location looking out on the harbour, so relaxing with the sounds of the sea. A room with a small balcony , beware the seagulls and their bottoms ! The rooms are small and in need of some tlc. and overpriced.We guess this is all to do with the cashing in on doc martin. The staff were so friendly and... More

The Slipway Hotel is in a superb location. We had a room with a balcony looking out to sea which was wonderful. Our room was clean and charming, and considering the age of the property, it makes good use of space! The staff were very nice and gave us plenty of warning about the England game and their late licence... More

A group of five we booked the family room at the top of this small hotel. This is an old building so the room was quirky (slanting floors, low ceilings) but fun. Situated at the harbour right in the middle of the village. There is no parking but you can drive to the hotel to drop off luggage. The charming... More

We are huge fans of the TV show "Doc Martin" and I took my wife there on a surprise visit. She cried as we entered town and came across the "Large Restaurant" van. First off, do not drive your car down the hill to the hotel. There is no parking and the narrow road (which is about 6 inches wider... More

Very disappointed with this hotel if you call it that more of a B and B rooms were like a cupboard the bathroom was even smaller, you had breakfast with the ironing board and washing basket! Food was passable but how they can charge £150.00 for one night I'll never know, we had stayed in Cornwall for the previous week... More

Yes, the hotel is old. Yes it has crooked walls and slopes floors. But that is what makes it so charming! The staff is wonderful and the views fantastic! It is in the center of the Doc Martin world. We enjoyed our stay very much!
