My wife and I enjoyed a three night stay at the Bay Hotel. Many elements of the stay led to the enjoyment factor ... the view, the quaint village, the people, Doc Martin locations, hiking along the coast, excellent breakfasts and last but not least Paul and Gino! We were greeted first by Gino. I owned a Great Dane years ago, so immediatley fell for Gino. All I had to do was scratch his ears and he nuzzled his head into my stomach (I was standing at the time!) and we became friends for life! Paul followed ..I didn't scratch his ears ... but he greeted us with open arms and made us feel equally welcome. Paul was very informative and knowledgable about everything in Port Isaac and surrounding area. He guided us to a great restaurant, had tips on the hikes we planned and had great stories about the cast of Doc Martin and their visits to the Bay Hotel. He was extremely helpful on one specific day ... my hike from Port Isaac to Tintagel. I planned a one way hike and then a bus back to Port isaac. The hike went well but the bus wasn't running that day. I called Paul and he said he would pick me up. About 30 minutes later while standing by the visitors center in Tintagel, a Maserati pulls into the parking lot ...it was Paul! Such service and such a pleasant ride back to Port Isaac in style! More great stories along the way cemented the overall experience. Thank you Paul for making our stay such an enjoyable and memorable one! It's obvious we will come back and also obvious we highly recommend others to vist for an experience of a lifetime! Jim & Joyce
