The Old School Hotel & Restaurant

Dramatic cliff top location. 12 individual rooms, all en-suite. Licensed bar and stunning seafood restaurant.


The Old School Hotel is situated in the beautiful village of Port Isaac in Cornwall. The village has been the setting for a number of films and television programmes. Currently the hotel is used as the school in ITV’s Doc Martin, with Martin Clunes. The dramatic coastline is a favourite with walkers, swimmers and surfers and Port Isaac is an ideal place from which to explore the surrounding area. We offer various accommodation from singles to family rooms, all en-suite. The Old School is also licensed for civil wedding ceremonies. The grade II listed Port Isaac Hotel provides free wireless internet access throughout and we also offers residents free onsite car parking.

We guarantee the best rates are available by booking directly with us via this website.

Latest update on Hotel Opening

26/05/2020: We continue to monitor all government advice and will re-open as soon as we can. Hopefully, this means that we will be open again from 4th July.


The majority of guests have moved their April & May bookings to another date or to 2021. We thank them for their assistance with this and their understanding considering the circumstances. We will be contacting guests with June bookings in due course to ask them whether they are prepared to do the same. Any enquiries can be directed to us by email reception@theoldschoolhotel.co.uk but please note there is likely to be a delay in responding as, with the office closed, all correspondence is being handled remotely. We endeavour to respond to all enquiries within 7 days.


We are still open for takeaways on Friday & Saturday nights, as we have been since early in lockdown. Please follow the takeaway link above for more information. Thank you for your support!
