I have to say, I was warned to take Port Isaac off my ambitious itinerary and I'm glad I didn't. While out weather was English rain showers, the port was still so quaint and charming even in the cloudy skies. The Slipway is just that as well with a bit of quirkiness. Room was small and the floors uneven -...

We are Doc Martin fans, because the show is fun and the town looks amazing! This is an old building, right in front of the water, near Miss Tishell's pharmacy, and just down the street from the Doc's house. The people are friendly, the food is good. My only complaint was the bed was a bit uncomfortable. (I am used...

Just spent two excellent nights at The Slipway. This historic hotel's location is just superb - right on the harbour front in the centre of the village. Our room was quite small but perfectly adequate as who wants to spend time in their room when staying in Port Isaac! The restaurant is really quaint, in keeping with the hotel, and...

Our first impression was not good ..children running around and the bar full of vocal drinkers but the staff were helpful. The room initially disappointing as we paid £90 for a tiny room overlooking another house.. so we had to keep the curtains closed for privacy..not ideal The room though small had everything you need TV coffee making facilities and...

We were staying for one night and the staff made us feel very welcome. Port Isaac is what you expect it to be with the added extra for Doc Martin fans. We found the hotel to be clean, although it possibly could do with a freshening up, but obviously the room sizes are dictated by the age of the building....

If it's a flash accommodation that you seek, or the most comfortable bed, then you possibly won't find it here. The rooms are clean and adequate. The food though is delicious, the staff are friendly and accommodating and the hotel itself is brimming with character. It's perfectly located if you love the smell of sea air, the sound of the...

we arrived on Wednesday my husband and I to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary, first impressions were that it was clean, however the water in the shower would not drain away due to it being so clogged with hair. after coming out of the shower my feet were covered in mud grit and sand from just walking out of the...

Stopped here for lunch on our day out to Doc Martins. Hoped to sit out where the Doc sits but already occupied. Sat upstairs with views across the harbour - lovely. Limited but tasty menu and friendly staff. Timely service.

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...
