Cornwall's beautiful, and there are plenty of beautiful places to stay, especially in the lovely village of Port Isaac, beloved of Doc Martin fans. The Old School stands out not just for its iconic loveliness. It is a delight in so many ways: comfy, private, great food, especially the teas and breakfasts. The highest praise goes to the staff--especially Sam...

If you love Doc Martin, you simply have to stay in the Old School House. From the car park you look across the bay at doc's surgery! There are some better rooms if available. First time I stayed I had a wonderful large room with a view. This time a smaller room opening onto a balcony. The rooms have names...

As a non-resident, had an evening meal here. We were warmly received by the receptionist/maitre d' and had pre-meal drinks in the reception area whilst looking at the menu. We had a lovely table in the old classroom and enjoyed a superbly cooked 2 course meal.There was a good range of dishes on the menu and a wonderful atmosphere in...

This is the building which doubles as the school in Doc Martin, which is quite appropriate as it used to be a school! Very nice old building with lots of character, situated on the side of one of the VERY steep hills in Port Isaac. Friendly service if you decide to pop in for lunch, drinks, snacks etc. Reasonable prices...

We were warmly welcomed by manager Sam. Throughout our stay she made every effort to make our experience of the Old School Hotel one that we will always remember. Our room, the mathematics room, was large, bright and airy with a hidden gem of a separate childs bedroom that would accommodate 2 children - very quirky and charming. The food...

We spent 2 nights here and enjoyed our stay. The location is lovely, particularly for Doc Martin fans, and is great as a base to explore the amazing Cornish coastline. We felt the hotel was a little over priced at £100 a night. The rooms are 'themed' as school rooms, and we stayed in the Music room, but this consisted...

Stayed here as a final 1 night tacked on to end of a nice 7 night stay in a great self catering apartment at Beachside, Rock, mainly to avoid need for taxi for dining at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac. After reading other reviews I wasn't expecting things to be too much like a "boutique" hotel, and so it...
