Very convenient friendly hotel. Nice owner and lovely dog. Great location with lovely views. I've read a lot of the bad reviews on here can honestly say our stay was brilliant. It isn't a posh hotel and you don't pay posh hotel prices. We paid £90 for three of us including breakfast and the room was great. The breakfast was... More

I had the misfortune of leaving my camera behind and Paul went out if hs way to post it back to Australia. On returning home we... More

My husband chose the hotel - the pictures showed lovely styled rooms with good views and thought it would be a nice place for our anniversary. My husband picked a room with... More

Paul and "Dino" were wonderful hosts. Though some aspects were dated, it was very clean, safe and friendly. They have a very convenient car park right next door and everything in Port Issac is within walking distance. It was a very quiet place to spend the night. Though we just stayed for one night, it was the perfect place for... More

Port Isaac is a wonderful picturesque place, plenty of great pubs/restaurants to eat in. As for Gino the Great Dane, he was wonderful, so friendly and my husband and I are not particularly dog lovers but he... More

I was visiting Port Isaac for the first time. I was only there for a day and wanted to go back with my husband. I saw the Bay Hotel and popped in to ask for details. I rang the bell as I entered the front door. I wasn't aware of the Great Dane and it did surprise me a little.... More
