This town has loads of character. We expected the Slipway to be quirky, but found it to be better than expected. Great view out over the harbour, small bathrooms but modern. Loads of history and character here. Besides the Slipway there is plenty of choice for dinner in Port Isaac. We went to the Motehouse for dinner which has the... More

The owners of this historic (1527) building have done a nice job of creating a pleasant bar, dining area and cozy hotel rooms upstairs. The location can't be beat - right across from Mrs. Tishell's Chemist Shop (Buttermilk Fudge) and steps away from the landing. We especially appreciated the friendly service by Rachel and Sue! The full breakfast was excellent,... More

Stopped here on a lovely sunny day and was very pleased with first impression of hotel. Loved having a side door entrance to hotel. Parking is at the top of the hill which is no problem as it's a lovely work back past all the well known places from Doc Martin. On a wet day this would be a bit... More

We're in Port Isaac and naturally mostly eating fish and crab, but it was nice to have a steak for a change of pace. Well cooked, nicely presented. Such an historic place too. This is a review for the restaurant, we didn't stay in the hotel.

We spent one night here in September 2013, drank at the bar, dined in the restaurant, and slept in a comfortable room. The drinks were great, the food and restaurant service was excellent and the room very comfortable. Mark, the host, was very congenial and enormously helpful in assisting us with information on where to find good food and accommodation... More

Just came back from weekend break. The staff were wonderful, food was great, rooms were small but the pillows were all dreadful! They all needed replacing as they were flat & hard. They couldn't find any replacements from the unoccupied room so they must all be the same. I suggest if you are planning to stay to take your own.

We stayed in a room looking out into the harbor. The room had a balcony which would have been a real plus in the warm weather. The room could use new carpeting. We loved the "steak night" at the restaurant and the breakfasts were delicious. The staff were great.

Located right on the harbour, right in the centre of the village The Slipway has a fantastic location. Especially as it right next door to the restaurant we were visiting. Our room was small but very cosy with comfortable beds, what more do you need from a hotel room? Breakfast was really good with a large choice of cooked meals... More

Found this pub on our stroll round this quant fishing village. Small but with bags of character, staff were welcoming and pleasant. Coffee was excellent, and spent a couple hours recovering from the weather! Proper job.
