Nicely situated hotel with beautiful sea views. Small hotel with lots of interesting memorabilia around. Breakfast was very good, freshly cooked to order with a good choice. Our room was nice and clean and we slept well. Paul and his staff were very friendly and Gino is so well behaved. Car parking is a bonus.

My husband and I stayed at The Bay Hotel for our 1st wedding anniversary as we had booked into Nathan Outlaw's Fish Kitchen for dinner (which was excellent). My husband chose the hotel - the pictures showed lovely styled rooms with good views and thought it would be a nice place for our anniversary. My husband picked a room with...

Paul and "Dino" were wonderful hosts. Though some aspects were dated, it was very clean, safe and friendly. They have a very convenient car park right next door and everything in Port Issac is within walking distance. It was a very quiet place to spend the night. Though we just stayed for one night, it was the perfect place for...

Great room with a sea view, super helpful owner, choice of breakfasts. Easy access to village, free car parking. Its short to the village, which has great eating places and shops to enjoy, plus plenty of cliff walks.
