Drove down to Port Isaac for a one night stay during a week's holiday in South Devon. We are fans of Doc Martin, so this greatly influenced our choice of resort (and hotel!). We were allocated The French room - the price, on reflection, being well worth it, as we had a free parking space outside the hotel (obviously very... More

We didn't stay at the hotel but stopped here for afternoon tea. It was really nice and very good value. Staff were very plesant and it was lovely in the warm sunshine. We were on a camping weekend nearby so this was a nice bit of luxury!

Stayed here only because there were no other rooms left anywhere so when I read the reviews I was wary... BUT I was very pleasantly surprised it's amazing!! Staff are lovely. Rooms were great - we were in the art room and biology both were really nice. Foot at breakfast was also very nice. Would highly recommend this place -... More

The best things about the Schoolhouse Hotel were the smiling and helpful young lady who checked us in, the wonderful location and the car park. Yes, parking can be difficult but it does say that on their web site. We had no trouble at all. Also we noticed there was a lot of space at the rear of the hotel... More

My party of 8 had spent a great day out. We called in to the lovely Port Isaac to stop for dinner, we spotted The Old School and decided to call in for dinner with 4 children age between 7 and 9. This venue though pleasing decor was not enjoyed by our party, we entered by the back lower doors... More

August is our busiest month and we are serving anywhere from 80 - 200 people per night. We try to serve everyone who arrives and fit them in if at all possible, although the best way to guarantee a table would be to book in advance. We are open all day, serving lunches, then cream teas & sandwiches in the... More

Stayed here for 1 night early July. Parking was very limited so beware that only selected spaces are allocated for the hotel. On arrival we were well greeted by the lady at reception. We stayed in Geography, which was smaller than I expected. Bathroom was small but clean, as was the bedroom. View out of the window was of a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Old School Hotel. Port Isaac is such a pretty place and of course it was great to look around the town where Doc Martin is made. Staff at the hotel were friendly and the breakfast was very good. We had the evening meal as well which was also good. Of course this is an... More

The hotel was everything we could hope for - clean rooms, friendly staff and an amazing view of Port Isaac. The breakfast, which is included with the price, is delicious and provides the perfect base upon which to hike the nearby trails.

We had an overnight stay here. Four of us [incl two teens] were in the Mathematics room. Open plan with a bedroom for the kids, overall good size, wi-fi and well kept. If staying in this room be aware it does have a very steep staircase to the loft bathroom and there are a number of stairs to the room... More

After my husband and I watched the tv series doc martin, we made it our mission to find the beautiful location of port issac. We were thrilled to discover that the old school house was a bed and breakfast. We vowed we would return one day and stay in the old school house. We booked two rooms one for us... More

Firstly, the History room is not advertised as having a shower, just a bath. It does have a hand held shower hose on the bath, but we wouldn't and have never said this is a 'shower'. 'History' & 'Latin' are the only two rooms we have without showers. Being a grade 2 listed building built in 1874, the sound proofing... More
