We love stopping off at the Morrit bar for lunch. The staff are friendly and the bar and gardens are nice. But disappointed by the sandwiches - my beef sandwich looked thrown together with the beef lost between doorsteps of bread with thick crusts. The accompanying garnish of salad and coleslaw was tired and unappealing, and the little dish of...

Came here yesterday with my fiancé, mother-in-law and dog. It was gorgeous weather so we sat outside. The staff were all very friendly and the food was fantastic. Cannot fault it at all and we'll definitely be coming back. Such a lovely place to sit too as the gardens are beautiful. I recommend the sea bass!

We held out wedding here in September, The Morritt itself and the grounds it in are just beautiful, and after attending a wedding there a few years ago, when we got engaged it was top of our list. My mum also hired out the cottage for her side of the family which was beautiful and they were flexible about the...

Little mistake on arrival but hands held up and bottle of prosecco and room rate reduced. Staff very helpful and breakfast was delicious. Rooms a little dated and could do with a good overhaul but would stay here again. Thanks to Anne who sorted everything out for us.

We have stayed here many times and we will again, the food was great as always, but we were surprised when the "pre-dessert" was missing from dinner, we always appreciated this, very unusual. Surprised too at the change in the toiletries from the lovely Garage Spa options. Finally the staff seemed a little less knowledgeable in respect of the lovely...

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a family wedding party. Hotel is really lovely and the staff could not do enough for you. We found the food to be of a very high standard. My only criticism would be I found the bed to be very hard and could feel the springs through the mattress..even though we had...

No problem show me the way to the elevator I ask, they didn't have one but the lovely woman on reception offered to carry our luggage up to the...

Sunday to Tuesday stay for a birthday treat for myself and sister. Booked a twin downstairs room as hotel doesn't have a lift. Surprised to be taken outside and round the back of the hotel to what looked like converted farm buildings. The room was fabulous. It was clean and modern with everything you need. Our own little cottage. This...

We came here for a long weekend with our pooch - they are dog friendly and have four rooms to the side of the main building to accommodate dog lovers. The room was very nicely furnished, beautiful carpet, comfy bed and great shower - the room was toasty too, the radiator worked a treat. Inside the main hotel, we were...
