The Old School Hotel is a beautiful little hotel in Port Isaac, The staff were very friendly and helpful. The on site restaurant is quite good; we would start and end our day with breakfast and dinner here. The bed was comfortable and the view of the harbor was wonderful. For Doc Martin fans, this is where they shoot the... More

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed this hotel. The accommodation is comfortable and cosy. Some areas need a little TLC and a little improvement on small areas would really raise the standard but that is being very picky. This is a good value hotel, with interesting rooms and amazing views. The bar and restaurant area are very good and... More

For a family of 5 we were offered the mathematics room. I double with sofa bed in the main room with bunk beds in a side room. The bathroom was in an attic space up some stairs. The ceilings are high, beams exposed and the windows were not ideal skylights and floor level side lights adjacent to the bed .... More

Stayed for three nights, and as luck would have it, we were given the only room without a view, or a window. The "Music" room is a small double situated right off a first floor seating terrace, with several tables and chairs. If we wanted any light or fresh air, we had to open the French doors which opened onto... More

We visited last November and stayed in the Latin room. The views from the room were great and it was well located within Port Isaac, especially for Nathan outlaw's places (see separate reviews!). It was just disappointing that the "little" things didn't seem to be cared for, such as rooms etc and equipment in it being slightly dated. Whilst these... More

We stayed for three nights in October 2013. On arrival we were impressed with the view from the car park! We stayed in Chemistry which, not being a large room, was more than adequate for us. The bed was comfortable, the linen clean and fresh, the bathroom with shower was just the ticket after a day walking the coast in... More

As a fan of Doc Martin, I loved staying at the Old School Hotel. The location is ideal, and the views are outstanding. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Breakfast was what one would expect, and a great way to start the day.

Decent place to pop into for drink or tea and cake. Could be so much more with a bit of forethought though. Having a car park as an entrance when you have views like that is almost criminal. Nice staff. Good for dogs outside but watch the drop off the wall it's a long way down

Thoroughly enjoyed my two nights in Geography at the Old School Hotel! My room was just right and even had a window seat, where I spent afternoons with a cup of tea and my book. Excellent location in the heart of Port Isaac meant I could explore the village, then pop back to my room to charge phone or just... More
