We booked room "Art", which is really nice and spacious. The location is great, food is good and staff friendly. BUT: - The big roof-lights were so dirty we couldn't enjoy the great view. Never seen such a dirty window in a hotel. - The bathroom is clean, but it's standard is far, really very far from the price of... More

The staff helped me after a bad experience at a neighbouring b & b involving a leak in the ceiling. All the staff were lovely and made up for this experience which could've ruined my trip to Port Isaac. Also, after planning a bus route to Padstow one of the girls suggested I got the bus to Rock and then... More

I stayed in the Old School Hotel in the Latin Room. I slept like a baby. I did hook up to wifi but don't know if it cost anything. As luck would have it, they were filming Doc Martin while we were there. They converted the parking lot at the Old School Hotel into the playground for Louisa's students. We... More

Could not fault this hotel, staff were wonderful, food amazing and room, even though slightly small, had such a wonderful view. Breakfast was very good, though hash browns could be on the menu, not a critisim, just a thought, but could not find anything to complain about. Would highly recommend this hotel as have stayed in Port Isaac before and... More

This should be a gold mine but no views of the sea from the dinning room which itself looked like a canteen. We asked to run a tab on our card but was told they don't do this in the afternoon as they can't keep a track on what people had - we we one of two tables and they... More

I took my husband and 2 children to The old School House, as a surprise for my husband's 50th. I booked the Mathematics room which was lovely, very comfortable and had a separate seating area and bedroom for the kids. We ate both nights in the hotel which was very pleasant.my only criticisms would be that the room didn't have... More

I cannot comment on the accommodation but i so wish i had of read other reviews before i came here. Decided to drop in for bite to eat with husband and two children. The barman saw us standing there, no one else around, then another customer got up from his table, walked right infront of us all and proceeded to... More

This is very spacious, king size bed and settee. The bathroom was good but a 4ft deep bath can be difficult... More

The Old School House is in a beautiful location in Port Isaac and is very quaint and full of character. The bedrooms are adequate - very clean with nice bed linen but our room (History) was very tight and while the bathroom was spacious, the bath was located under the stairwell and so one couldn't stand in it for a...

I have just 3 nights at at The Old School House. I was given the Religious Studies room on the ground floor, with stunning views out over the harbour. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. There were usual teas and coffees etc as well as some very good products in the en-suite. My only slight niggle was... More
