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...

We recently stayed in beautiful Port Isacc for a week and luckily discovered this restaurant on our 1st night. We returned 3 more times, and each time the food was excellent and the staff were very very friendly. By our last night the staff even knew what we wanted to drink, and were more than happy to let us change...

We had a really enjoyable stay in the Art room at the Old School House. Very comfortable bright and airy room with a view of the harbour. A quirky hotel in a great location, Port Isaac is a beautiful little fishing village well located for walks on the coastal path and for exploring the local area with Polzeath, Rock and...
