We ignored all the negative reviews and were so glad we did. There were a group having fun on the Sunday when we arrived, which continued on into early evening, but it didn't cause us a problem. We stayed in the family room at the very top, which was fab. It had a small lounge separate from the bedroom and... More

We booked several rooms here recently to attend a wedding. Knowing a few local folk, we knew what to ask for. There is a lovely large, newly refurbished room at the back of the Lifeboat House which is lovely and if you don't mind a bit cramped, a great sea view room at the front of the hotel section. All...

My wife and I stopped here earlier this year as part of the South West Coast Path walk. Port Isaac seems a rather obvious place to stay, a stunning location, recent TV fame, and positioned as it is, most walkers will choose it. We paid more for this place than any other night's accommodation on the entire 630 miles route... More

We stayed in the lifeboat room comprising two bedrooms and a living room. The second bedroom had two bunks but we just used the main rom. The bedroom and living room open out onto the tidal harbour. Just twenty feet from the water at high tide the sound of the water and the view was wonderful. The bed was large... More

So glad we weren't put off by the negative reviews. Stayed for 6 nights in Room 1. The Slipway was clean, the staff were courteous and the food was delicious. Port Isaac is a gem of a place to visit. Would thoroughly recommend a holiday or short break here.

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.
