We had a very disappointing three night stay. The views are superb over the bay, but our window rattled all night long until we plugged it with towels. The room wasn't turned down or even cleaned once during our stay, breakfast was underwhelming, not cooked, and served in bed. But the bathroom is the worst, not enough hot water to... More

The guesthouse website has many pictures of delightful views of the harbour which is what enticed us to book, after a long drive we were met with a tiny room and our view from room 9 could only be seen through a high window for those that stood taller than six and half feet tall or an average person standing...

We stayed in December and it was a great location for our family. On the positive side the rooms were fine and Martyn (the owner) was welcoming and friendly. Unfortunately the upstairs bathroom and single toilet were shabby and in need of updating. Martyn had said to help ourselves in the ktchen but it was filthy and we decided to... More

I don't know what the negative reviewers are talking about! We walked into our room and were ecstatic with the view and pleasantness of the staff. We had driven many hours to reach Port Isaac, were shown our room and immediately offered a pot of tea which was so needed and brought up on a tray. When our host saw... More

I was nervous due to poor reviews, however I think because of this it made it better. A man met us and showed us to our room. He told us where to park. Yes this is an inconvenient walk but your in Port Isaac so any walk is nice. Room was spacious, clean and everything you needed. Although the shared... More

My wife and I have had a very traumatic time this year and I just wanted to take her away and give her some time out. Port Isaac seemed the perfect place, but due to it's popularity it was difficult to find something at short notice. I checked on booking.com and couldn't believe my luck when a room was available...

Okay stay, but that was mainly because me and me mum work in hospitality and have a high tolerance level. No cooked breakfast and we are big eaters, only half a cup of coffee with breakfast, breakfast left on a tray outside room...woken up 2.30am by shouting idiots downstairs, the owner and friends I think, possibly saw them drive off...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Whilst always having the most spectacular, panoramic sea views in this beautiful historic fishing village, Port Isaac Harbour View has undergone extensive refurbishment, and has a new manager from the 14th November, who previously ran a prestigious Farmhouse Bed and Breakfast on Her Majesty the Queen's Duchy of Lancaster Estate. Port Isaac Harbour View is situated in a Prime Location overlooking the bay, internationally renowned for the television series Doc Martin. All rooms have uninterrupted, panoramic sea views. Unique to the village, our bed and breakfast offers the opportunity to relax in the tiered, traditional wild Cornish garden which again has spectacular sea views. Enjoy a glass of wine whilst listening to the haunting harmonies of the Fisherman's friends. ... more   less
