The Slipway Hotel was an excellent place to start and end our stay in Port Isaac, Cornwall. We did not rent a car as we wanted to explore as much of Port Isaac and it's surrounding areas as possible by walking. The Slipway is so authentic. I cannot remember the exact year, but I know that the building has been in Port Isaac since the 1500's. That kind of charm, the old beams, the wood floors, rock walls, small staircases and general ambiance was exciting and made our trip more memorable. Our room (9) was just ideal. A double bed that was very, very comfortable, small bathroom and a nice window over an adjoining street were picturesque and just right! We were also able to really enjoy watching the BBC, since were are from the USA, it was yet another point of interest and welcome perspective. Also: important for us: the wireless internet was very fast and allowed us to keep up on necessary issues at home. The cozy-ness of the entire premises adds so much flavor to your trip. It was special. The bar and restaurant have many options for time of the day (lunch, cream teas, dinner, and more) and food is fresh and delicious. Guests of the hotel enjoy a delicious breakfast daily from 8:30 until 9) It is delightful, as there are fresh fruits, juices, fresh tomatoes and mushrooms, eggs, local bacon and sausage, warm toast, jams, and more.) Also served for breakfast were several options that offer an unique experience of Cornish/British fare. Lovely. It was so pleasant to go down to breakfast and enjoy a cup of hot tea. ALL of the hotel employees are friendly, competent and simply cannot do enough to help you. All employees help each other and are exceptionally polite. From making the reservation online to checkout, the experience was seamless. I want to mention that each room is cleaned and tidied daily with a set of fresh towels too. The Slipway is centered right in the heart of the village of Port Isaac. It is right across from the harbour and all of its incredible beauty. A large variety of pubs, restaurants large and small, the best candy store in the world and shops with traditional Cornish Pasties abound. Many well-stocked gift stores with not only memorabilia of Port Isaac and Doc Martin but appealing clothing and much, much more. It is important to note that there are quite a few little streets that are hills. However, families were able to push wheelchairs up and down. Dogs are welcome and joyful! Just adds to the charm. Port Isaac was even more beautiful, charming and welcoming than I could have dreamed. Staying at the Slipway made each day even more special and memorable. Port Isaac is a must-see in Cornwall. You have to see it to believe it and immerse yourself in the village-all the winding streets, cottages, stone walls, fishermen and boats, sea birds, pubs and it's people. I will never forget it and I can't wait to come back. Thank you for a really enjoyable stay. It was our privilege to meet all of you and experience your part of the world. Thanks for sharing.
