We were expecting the hotels and pubs to be cashing in on Doc Martin fame and that's pretty much what we got. The room was like being in a cupboard with a bed in it. The carpet was filthy as was the radiator. The bed was rock hard with pillows that were so flat it was a waste of time...

Came here last month with my Mum to treat her for her 89th birthday and she loved every minute of it. So glad I picked the Slipway as it was probably one of the most conveniently located stays in Port Isaac. OK, so it's not the most luxurious but it's quirky and comfortable, the staff were welcoming and the breakfast...

We stayed in Port Isaac for four nights and came here twice for our main meal. The bar is dog friendly so it was perfect for us. The staff were really friendly and made us feel right at home, and even served us after the kitchen closed! We went on Steak night and had the best rump steak of my...

This was the quaintest, quirkiest little hotel we've stayed in. We arrived mid afternoon and the road down to the harbour is very narrow. We were allowed to offload our luggage outside the hotel, but had to manoeuvre back up the hill to park the car in the public car park. The charge for this is £5 for 24hrs. We...

I was here last summer and visited restaurant. Ordered a chicken dish and it didn't match what was described on the menu. The potato cakes which were supposed to acoompany it weren't there. Instead I was served three boiled new potatoes, arrange between three large pieces of slimy courgette. It looked ridiculous, assumedly they'd run out of potato cakes (or...

The hotel was all that was advertised as in position. We're a little disappointed in the menu. Also the the strong smell of fish was off putting. We had a room over looking the harbour, it was a great view.

Whilst the location of the hotel is great, it was very overpriced for what was on offer. I would normally expect to pay half the price for similar facilities. The room was small, and reached via some very tired parts of the hotel and facilities. The breakfast was adequate but nothing special. There was a huge 'staff row' going on...

This is a very old hotel with lots of history. I wanted to stay here because of the Doc Martin thing and also be right in the middle of Port Isacc. Our room was up 2 flights of stairs and it did overlook the small harbour. The room was small but clean and comfortable but it was a little cold....

We took refuge in the Slipway during a rainy visit to Port Isaac, I had a pint of Doombar and my with and Mum went for a cream tea, the beer was excellent and the cream tea was huge, certainly the best portions we've had whilst visiting Cornwall! A great spot with friendly staff.
