I visited Port Isaac a few weeks ago, and had the pleasure of staying here. The hotel itself is perched on a hill, overlooking the most beautiful bay in this quaint little town. Once you are able to treat yourself away from the view, you'll notice that the hotel itself is a beautifully converted from what I imagine used to...

Booked a one night stay on bed and breakfast basis - there is a restaurant but we had already booked in elsewhere beforehand. Great location and has it's own car park which is a must for Port Isaac. Lovely hotel, welcoming staff and all very clean and cosy. Being the old school house has given the rooms and the restaurant...

My wife and I recently returned from a lovely stay in Port Issac. We like to visit multiple restaurants and the Old School is a great place to eat. Great service, lovely food and reasonably priced. Would definitely go back.

Had coffee at the Old School Hotel and returned later for lunch. Service good from attentive staff. Generous portions of food, nicely cooked. Enjoyable spot to while away an hour or so lunching and chatting.

We had dinner here and were not disappointed. The menu was just right - the variety of food just enough to suit all palates. Service was excellent and very friendly and the setting warm and welcoming. Our food was cooked fresh and delicious. Would definitely visit again.

Great position overlooking the harbour. Room was large and comfortable (Biology) and breakfast plentiful. Major bonus was that parking was available (I can imagine in the summer months the Port Isaac parking situation is rather tricky!). The only downside is that certain areas of the hotel are a little tired and could do with some TLC but I feel this...

There's so much to love about this place.... First off, we are Doc Martin fans, so this was a bit of a pilgrimage for us. The hotel is in the building that acts as a school in the TV show, so it was pretty cool just to be there. Second, our room (Latin) overlooked the harbor with perfect views of...

We enjoyed our stay in probably the best room (Latin) in the hotel, fantastic views from the large windows. No shower in the ensuite, just a bath with shower attachment. The hotel could improve if they got Sky TV fitted as standard across all their rooms as just 6 freeview channels available. Our windows could have also done with a...
