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!

First time to this area and loved it. The Slipway is a quaint little place in need of a bit of a spruce up, but that doesn't distract from the location right on the water front and the excellent staff.Any 'Doc Martin' fan needs to experience a stay.The views are beautiful.

We went for our wedding anniversary because I adore Port Isaac. Slipway Hotel is in a stunning location right on the harbour front - unfortunately it is overpriced for the size of bedrooms (I kept kicking the end of the bed as there isn't enough space to walk around the end of the bed). The ensuite is tiny and it... More

Paid for the suite as it was the last room available and it stood up to scrutiny, although the double bed seemed a little small in a room that cost £180. Food was okay, however, only a couple of other diners as they couldn't get any staff to work on this Saturday night, so atmosphere limited. Bar was good though.... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Slipway in the 'historic fishing village'. The hotel is located right down at the water's edge - which has its pluses and minuses. Pluses: beautiful views of the cove and all the goings on, easy to explore the town, extremely nice staff, hearty breakfast (included in your room rate - which we thought was... More
