We stayed at the Old School in late September for 2 nights to finish off our holiday in Cornwall, to celebrate a special birthday.
As it was a special occasion, we booked the Latin room.
The room itself was satisfactory, with a spectacular view of the harbour as promised. However the overall decor and standard of the hotel was not of a high enough quality to justify the £160 per night price tag. Breakfast was satisfactory, but again not of a standard which you would expect for the price, when compared to other hotels of a similar price, ie the Drunken Duck in Ambleside and The Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton (i know these are not in Cornwall, but both in similarly lovely areas). We didn't eat in the restaurant, on the first night becasue there was a wedding party, and on the second night because of the overall sense of disappointment with lack of quality and attention to detail.
The hotel is in a beautiful setting, but seems to be being a bit cheeky with its prices in view of the standard of hotel and staff (all of whom seemed to be only in their twenties).
