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...

A nice old hotel (1600's I think) but put together nicely. Room I had was small, but great views and all amenities were in the room. Lovely cooked breakfast which set you up for the day. Very friendly and helpful staff, so. Would I stay again, definitely.

Recently stayed for a couple of nights with my wife. We have both worked for an airline for the last 25 yrs and have had our fair share of 4/5 star hotels. But this place we found really special. First of all its location is the heart of port Isaac. We found the room warm and cosy with the view...

Lovely place to eat near the harbour. The food was excellent,although a bit pricey for what it was,I think on the back of the TV series. However I don't blame them for that - its a long winter. Staff were very friendly and happy to help,service was very good.Would I eat here again? Yes,I certainly would. Another bonus - Very...

The hotel cancelled a confirmed reservation on Booking.com the day after it was made. Awkward as other hotels also filled up in the meantime. Can't make any comment on what the hotel itself is like as didn't get that far.

kiwiphil, Owner at The Slipway, responded to this review

We are sorry about that mixup, booking.com went live before having a link to our booking system. We and they were astonished that within 2 hours of them turning our site on, they received 4 bookings for the same room on the same date! For near future dates, may i suggest contacting the B&B directly. Regards Phil
