This little hotel is lovely, a great place to stay and explore the local area. A bit difficult with parking true, but drop your bags off and park your car at the local car park and your break begins. A perfect place to walk along the Cornish coast. Lovely views of the harbour. Rooms spotlessly clean and compact with everything...

Lovely pub/cafe for an afternoon in port Isaac. Relatively limited kids menus, would be good to see sandwiches on there as we had to order adult ones. Mussels were out of this world! Definitely recommend!

The breakfast was delicious ranging from fresh fruit, cereals leading onto a choice of about 6-8 main meals, toast tea coffee as much as you like. We chose the...

Stayed in top room really enjoyed stay. Breakfast was very nice could not be faulted. Many clifftop walks locally . Would be happy to return not to be missed. There is a carpark at the top of the village for parking but you can drive down to hotel to unload.

The Slip is a great base for walking the nearby cliff paths. My twin room was clean and comfortable. The vegetarian breakfast was delicious. The team were so helpful, and friendly, and I would definitely come back to stay again.

On a cold wet and stormy Friday night at the end of January we were very pleased to see that The Slipway was about the only place in Port Isaac to open their doors – (he other was The Old School House). After a long drive down from Sheffield it was particularly welcome. We had a warm welcome in the...
