Stopped of for a business trip at the Bay Hotel, very nice, fantastic view from my room, and the resident dog is adorable. Missed breakfast as I over slept as I was to comfortable. Only a five minute walk to the harbour which I would recommend. If I have the opportunity to stay again I will.

We spent 5 nights in The Bay Hotel. It is a B&B. The less good points for us were that it was full of tons of memorabilia on the ground floor. Most of it was not relevant to the area and not something that would interest us. The other criticism we could make would be that the housekeeping could be... More

Paul, Gino and Team offer a genuine warm welcome and caring hospitality; arrive as guests leave and return as friends. The Bay Hotel commands beautiful views, superb service, fresh food, high standards of cleanliness and convenient parking, all of which culminates in a relaxed and memorable vacation. How refreshing, well done!

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,...

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.
