We were so lucky with a long sunny winter weekend - the Slipway was great - amazing breakfast. Lovely dog walks along the coastal path and great to relive the Doc Martin set. Highly recommend this beautiful place. So much so we've booked to go back for Christmas 🎄

Spent two nights there last weekend with my wife. Occupied room 11 which was the family room and other than the low ceilings we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was fine both mornings but they ran out of fruit cocktail before we got down for breakfast. I had a salmon meal which was very enjoyable. Evening meal was also very...

Hi Duncan thanks for the review, Room 11 has got low Cornish ceilings but makes up in space and the best view out the window. ( the room is getting a full renovation in March but unfortunately i can't lift the roof) Sorry about the fruit cocktail running out. there is no excuse for that and you can be assured...

Great location on the seafront and central to the shops and pubs, not that Port Isaac is very large. Quiet there during our stay so they closed the bar and restaurant early after consulting us. We were happy to go to the pub up the road but if the breakfast was anything to go by then the evening meals should...

Booked a room for a few nights away from the kids and to celebrate a birthday. Having children means time as a couple is a rare and very precious so going back to a place is something we don't often do. So, what's the review then? Well parking in the immediate vicinity is pretty impossible, any research will confirm this...

Situated in the heart of this beautiful village you find the Slipway. Old building with lovely rooms and amazing breakfast. Only downside is the parking restriction which means you have to park about 400 yards away and walk. Don't let that put you off.

We came to the Slipway on the 28th for three nights bed and breakfast. On arrival we were told that our room was ready (even though we were two hours early) and that we were upgraded to a room with sea view! The room was small but it is a very old place and sloping floors are to be expected!...

Arrived into the village where your vehicle door mirrors miss if you are lucky homes on either side by a couple of inches. Yes the streets are that narrow see the pictures. We unloaded on the beach, then hurriedly moved the vehicle not because of the incoming tide but the fact that there is a small sign explaining £100 for...
