It is 2 years since our last visit but the standard of all amenities have not slipped.
Due to health reasons we had a ground floor room overlooking the car park but the facilities were just as good as the sea view rooms we had previously occupied.
Breakfast was first class and the selection of snacks and drinks available during the day in the Conservatory Café/bar were ample for your needs.
Not a lot more can be added to our previous reviews and will certainly be going again.

Travelling with elderly parents we asked for ground floor rooms. Lovely view over babbacombe downs to the sea. Two minutes to the cliff railway & cafe. Hanbury's fish & chips round the corner.Beautiful big rooms and refurbished bathroom with walk in shower. Small additions would have made it perfect - two squashy armchairs for the parents so they didn't fight over the one and only! We didn't have any but didn't need them as we were more active. Bigger TVs that you could actually see from the bed. We had an miniscule double bed and a single in our room which meant we had to sleep in separate beds as no way could we both fit in such a small double. A dressing table would have been nice instead of the extra bed as would a full length mirror. Parents had a dressing table but no mirror. Just little things would have made it luxurious. (Take your own toiletries/shower hat etc - there is only the basic shower gel/shampoo/soap). Nice to have kettle and good supply of teabags etc in room. Shame that the beautiful conservatory didn't have any sofas in it, only did lunches and closed at 5pm. And this was where the wi-fi worked best! Would have been a lovely place to sit and have a coffee in the evenings. There is a sort of lounge but it is dark and not the sort of place you want to sit. Breakfasts were excellent. Staff were excellent - cleaning was spot on everyday. However, the new shower room was already collecting some black mould. Overall though we thought it was good value and a wonderful position.

Stayed 6/6/14 - 9/6/14 for the third time. Excellent accomodation, top class breakfasts looking out over Lyme Bay and lovely hosts ensures that I and my family will return time and again when visiting Babbacombe.

What a wonderful hotel right on the sea front. We stayed from Thursday until Sunday attending a weddings here on Saturday 5th may 2014, the rooms were comfortable and well appointed with tea and coffee facilities in the room and some having rooms overlooking the sea. The staff were all very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We had bed and breakfast and the food was spot on, serving cereal, full English as well as fruit juices, tea and coffee. I would like to say a big thank you to John Paul for making our stay pleasant and enjoyable.

We have stayed at The Morningside on a previous occasion and could not fault the Hotel, however having booked a sea view room via The Morningside Website on 28th February 2014 for one nights stay on 3rd May 2014, and having this booking confirmed by e-mail, some weeks later I had reason to phone the hotel direct because the deposit had not been debited from my account and I was informed by the hotel that they had not "got around" to doing it yet. I was asked whether I was part of a wedding party and informed them that I was not.
Today I looked on their website to see if there was a vacancy for 4th May, with a view to staying an extra night, and as the indication was that a vacant sea view room was available I telephoned the hotel mid morning with a view to extending our stay.
To my surprise I was informed that there was a wedding party in residence on this weekend and the party had booked the whole hotel. Thank goodness I had made contact or I would have driven 150 miles to find no accommodation.
I have just checked the website(1830hrs) and it is still indicating accommodation available.

Just returned from a weekend stay celebrating a family birthday. We all had a fantastic time. The food was excellent as was the accommodation. The hotel is really lovely, warm and homely and very clean. All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Child friendly too. Thank you John Paul for looking after us all so well and for catering to all our requirements. We will definitely be back.
