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 Coronavirus

21/03/2020: It is with great sadness that we have decided to close the Hotel until further notice from Monday morning. Following the statement from the Prime Minister yesterday, closing all cafes, pubs & restaurants we feel it is the best course of action to protect our families, staff and the local community.
We will continue to monitor all government advice and will re-open as soon as we can.


We will be in contact with customers booked for March, April & May in due course to move your booking. Any urgent enquiries can be directed to us by email reception@theoldschoolhotel.co.uk but please note there is likely to be considerable delay in responding


As a small, family business, this is devastating and we ask that you have patience with us at this awful time. 
We intend to stay open for takeaways if you’re in the local area – it would be great if you would still support us.

In the meantime, look after yourselves, follow the government advice and hopefully we can all beat this together.

Best regards,
The Old School Hotel
