My husband and I have just stayed for 2 nights at this wonderfully welcoming, clean and friendly accommodation. We were greeted by the lovely owner Paul and his adorable Great Dane Gino. Our room was lovely and the bed so comfy. Paul was very helpful and we loved sitting chatting to him. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff were... More

I treated my husband to 3 nights at the Bay Hotel to celebrate a special Birthday. From start to finish the experience was fantastic. It started with Paul the owner upgrading us to a room with a balcony over the bay. He was so friendly, and helpful. Then we had the most wonderful experience of being greeted by Gino, the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Bay Hotel just before Christmas for two nights. We had a friendly welcome and Paul helped us with our bags to the room. As we were the only guests staying at the hotel Paul had thoughtfully upgraded our room to a lovely room with a private balcony which we were very pleased about... More

The Bay House hotel is without doubt the finest B&B we have ever stayed in. The room itself was superb, large double bed with the most unbelievable sea-views from the room & your own private balcony! The breakfasts were brilliant - & sensible focussed selection which were expertly cooked by Paul the owner. This leads me to Paul - you... More

As fans of the show Doc Martin we wanted to visit Port Isaac while on vacation in London. The Bay Hotel was featured as the Wenn House in the fictional Port Wenn. We came in the off-season and were the only guests that evening so the owner Paul upgraded our room. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Gino, a... More

Breakfast was excellent and came not only with a can do and... More

Paul and Rebecca are such excellent hosts. I felt like I was totally catered to. Paul and the staff really helped me out parking the car because driving, and especially parking, anywhere in Port Issac is a challenge. I was happy to leave the key with them and let them take care of it lest I damage someone else's vehicle... More

We were so thrilled to find a room to rest up for a couple of days in this delightful hotel sitting high up on the cliff overlooking the sea and part of the village of Port Isaac. What a gem in the crown of Port Isaac. The host welcomed us and although we couldn't get the same room for a... More

Me and my wife stayed for 3 nights in November. Having seen Doc Martin and loving Cornwall it seemed silly not to stay at Port Isaac. We choose The Bay Hotel and Paul the owner welcomed us the first night as we arrived very late and immediately made us feel very welcome. This was the case all through our stay... More

The Bay Hotel was our first stop and an ideal start for our a two week tour of Cornwall. The rooms were compact but clean, smart without pretension and the beds were a traveller's dream. Good views, quiet but very convenient location and enjoyable walk into town. Gino was sweet (and smell-free). Paul's quite the host. The parking lot was... More
