My husband & myself stayed here over the bank holiday weekend, we first saw the hotel last year when we spent the day in Port Isaac, and decided to return this year & stay in the Bay Hotel, as it stands on top of the hill overlooking the bay, with beautiful views, we were not in the least bit disappointed,...

My husband and I had a well earned break in Port Isaac and our stay at The Bay Hotel was lovely. Perfect spot for all we wanted to do....Paul and his staff were very friendly and we loved Gino! Very comfortable room with great views and delicious selection of food for breakfast. Thank you.

This town is just as quaint as on the series 'Doc Martin'. This Bay Hotel was an excellent B&B, cosy and Paul the host was friendly and good ocean views. The English breakfast was superb and we were always greeted by Dino the friendly Great Dane. Definitely recommend this establishment.

I stayed here with my husband for a one night stay. As already mentioned by others we felt the accommodation was very drab and tired. We weren't made to feel at all welcome, it was as if the owner couldn't be bothered at all. Considering the price of the rooms we expected a lot better. Port Isaac itself is beautiful.

Paul and staff help make the stay the success that you always want. Of course Gina was a wonderful help also. Our stay was for three nights and from start to finish it was a pleasure. Highly recommended for the atmosphere and the views; also a great place from which to walk the village.

My definition of a hotel is a place that has a Restaurant and a Bar. This place has neither, it is a Bed and Breakfast and that's it, a boarding house. Breakfast is served from 8-30am until 9-30am !! the breakfast itself was good, but that`s it. We stayed in room 5 for one night at a cost of £145.00!!.... More
