Had an enjoyable stay at Port Isaac (a.k.a. Port Wenn in Doc Martin on the north coast of Cornwall) Getting there: If you live outside Cornwall, then kill two birds with one stone as I did. Travel down by train from London to Penzance then a short bus/taxi trip to Lands End and stay at the Hotel there for one... More

The Old School Hotel is located in the heart of Port Isaac and of course achieved fame as a location in the Doc Martin TV series. As a quaint old building it has challenges so don't expect luxury. Our room was adequately sized and comfortably furnished with a sea view of sorts. However the decoration was basic and failing in... More

If you are looking for the perfect Village in Cornwall to visit and a charming hotel then this is the place for you . It's the town where the tv show Doc Martin is filmed but it's still authentic and hasn't been affected by tourism . The hotel is the only place to stay in the middle of town .... More

Had a fab meal and stunning fireworks at midnight . Took the dog with us so rooms are small and on ground floor. Staff are great very accommodating too. They are just about to start a refurbishment some areas need it ! Views were great and weather invigorating!

I'm not a Dr Martin fan, I do like the programme but would not lose sleep over missing an episode! However, I appreciate that to fans, the opportunity to stay somewhere that's featured in the programme is a going to be a major appeal of this hotel (Not to mention that from the bed of the Latin room, you are...

Visited here for a basic lunch on a quiet Monday. Couldn't fault the service, friendliness of the staff or food quality. Though we only had a couple of baguettes they were very fresh, full of filling and supplied with crisps on the side. Good value too.
