Spent two nights in Room 11 - top attic family suite in February. It had just been refurbished with new carpets etc. It is a lovely old hotel and therefore the beams are low so maybe this suite more suited to shorter people ! Lovely view across to the harbour from lounge area - nice rooftop view of Port Isaac...

Called in today for lunch. Very good fish and chips and Doom bar. Not a huge menu which is good and staff very friendly. Really worth a visit. It's dog friendly with lots of seating outdoors especially nice when the weather is good.

Been several times now and stayed in all of the sea view rooms. The smugglers room at the top didn't disappoint, cosy with plenty of room. Wifi didn't quite reach but apart from that perfect. Staff are friendly as always and make you feel welcome. Thank you will see you soon!

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!

Hi Emma Thank you for the lovely review. Please remember for your next visit. We can pretty much make anything for the kids ( if its not too busy) Our chefs are more flexible than Olympic Gymnasts and are happy to mix and match if possible. And I agree about the mussels, super fresh and super delicious :) Regards Phil

We came away for a two night break, unsure of what our accommodation would be like. We needn't have worried,our room was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated with a modern en suite.

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.
