The Slipway Hotel "ticked all the boxes" for what we were hoping to experience during our stay in Port Isaac, a quintessential Cornish fishing village, made famous as the location for the Doc Martin TV series. The village itself has an ancient, postage-stamp, rabbit-warren quaintness and this same ambience exists at The Slipway Hotel with its intriguing levels and stairways.....you really feel you are a part of the genuinely authentic scene. Room 5 was great, with its views out over the harbour. Meals were good, especially the excellent dinner menu. Staff were very obliging and friendly. A downside is the lack of car-parking adjacent to the hotel. Part of the charm of this lovely village is the absence of cars and it certainly is a plus to have cars parked well away from the heart of the village, but it would be good if it were possible to have a ticket issued for the duration of your stay to avoid the uphill climb to the public carpark on a daily basis to top-up the pay and display. The historic and 'Doc Martin' walking tour was worthwhile....we accessed little passageways and footpaths at the back of the village that you would never know were there....wonderful to think of how little has changed over the centuries and, hopefully, the possibility that nothing much will change in the future.
