Everything at this hotel is good or very good. There really are no weak links! The staff are great, the atmosphere is both cosy and minimalist. Very clean, but welcoming. The views are as good as you'd expect in Port Isaac. Breakfast is good, though not excellent. Overall, the Old School comes highly recommended from us!

My wife and I really enjoyed our one night dinner, bed and breakfast, stay at Old School Hotel. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised with a complimentary upgrade to a large double room with sea and harbour views. The staff were very friendly, it was spotlessly clean and the food was very good indeed. We will stay with you again.

Great hotel, We had a 7 night stay, loved every day of it, very good food, the best in town, that in combination with the always smiling staff, you can’t get any better. If you want something done, ask the staff and when its possible they will do it directly, miracles will take a moment longer. No nonsense way of... More

This is a wonderful place to stay whether or not you are a fan of Doc Martin, the TV show. If you are a fan it is where the outdoor school scenes are filmed and a lovely hotel is just the added bonus!

We loved our stay, it's the school house Louisa teaches in in "Doc Martin" and is across the harbour from the Doc's house. We were able to park the car right there and had a warm welcome. The rooms are named after school subjects e.g French, Religious Studies but we were assigned the fabulous English Room! Up a flight of... More

Yes, my wife and I are Doc Martin fans, so staying here was on the bucket list. However, I would definitely stay here even if I had never heard of Doc Martin. One of the big pluses about the hotel is that is has on site parking (which nowhere else in Port Isaac has). Having parked our car we entered... More

This is our 6/7th time at the old school, and it's been just as fantastic this time as it is always. We stayed in the English room this time, were usually in the mathematics room as we usually have 2 kids 2 dogs with us, this time we was alone! Yay! The room was immaculate. Bathroom was so clean, just... More

We had a 2 night stay in September. The hotel and room were pretty much as we expected from the website and reviews so we were quite satisfied. We stayed in the mathematics family room which was pleasant and clean. The bathroom is upstairs which could be an issue for some. The bed was comfortable, there was tea and coffee... More

This was a comfortable hotel, with a well appointed room and very friendly, helpful staff. The food was amazing, the cooked breakfasts as well as the dinners. I also loved that the place has some history to it, and is very much a part of the town. Loved it

While I stayed across the street I would stay here the next visit to Port Isaac. We had dinner in The Old School and it was excellent. I ask to see the rooms and the 3 that I saw were beautifully decorated and spacious. The views were great looking across to the Dr. Martin house and it was an easy... More
