I must have stayed somewhere else as the moaning reviews prior to this did not reflect my experience at all. I had a lovely stay, with really pleasant staff. Nice beer and lovely food, the steak being spot on. I stayed on business and will be booking again, without hesitation. If you had to push me for a negative I'd... More

I have visited Port Isaac many times over the past 20 years. The Slipway Hotel came highly recommended in a May 2014 edition of a national Cornwall magazine as 'one of five best Cornish B&Bs'. How only five months can make a difference! I stayed for one night in early October 2014. The clue was obviously in the hoarding at... More

We went to experience Port Isaac, home to the Doc Martin TV series. Port Isaac remains a fishing village, unspoilt by the success the tv series has brought in terms of visitors from around the world. The Slipway Hotel was a great location overlooking the harbour but be prepared. If the tides are right fishing boats leave early in the... More

Spent the night here late September, so after the crowds are gone. There was nothing better than after the day of looking around the town with all the people, then they are gone and you have this hotel and the town all to yourself. We were two of only about 15 people who were staying in the hotel. Had the... More

Poor quality house wine served in old fashioned Paris goblets, we sat in the courtyard to take in the atmosphere which is a perfect idyllic location and that's the positive part if this review. Courtyard seating area is very shabby and seating uncomfortable.

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

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...
