“Very nice hotel in great location”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Stayed for two nights on a Saturday and Sunday and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a stone’s throw from the castle entrance and all of the pubs and shops, and only short drives away through beautiful scenery to Lulworth Cove, Durdle Door, the lovely beaches of Studland, and Swanage . Our room was fine without being memorable, but was only a standard room, so I am sure that you could pay to upgrade to something more plush if necessary. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and offered suggestions for places to visit etc. We dined on both evenings, and the dining room was informal and the food very good.
I would definitely recommend both the area and the hotel for a short break.

I stayed at this hotel along with another 20 as guests of the bride and groom at their wedding. Well ! what a day, the sun was out for a start and the day was just beautiful. The hotel and location is superb all creaking floors and old stone and it has a lot of history. Well staffed, rooms spotless and food just glorious. Nothing was too much trouble for Beverley and her staff and there was plenty of staff in attendance. All in a great hotel, wonderful location, and a wonderful day. Will I return, you bet !! The hotel is a also ideal for people who want to visit the area as well, which in itself is also stunning.

Room Tip: My room was at the front and a little noisy when leaving the window open which did not bother me too...

I work in Dorset from time to time, and stop here if my normal places are full. It is a lovely old building with period rooms, good bathrooms, lovely clean towels and linens, and a real 'county set' atmosphere. I feel guilty bringing the laptop into the bar.

The restaurant is good, but not quite as good as it thinks it is and on a few occasions the food has been less than piping hot. I'd like to see more variety and more original deserts. Breakfast is supposed to be good, but I invariably have to start work before they serve it.

Probably a fantastic place for weddings, or the carriage trade, but a bit out of my league in steel-capped boots and overalls.

We were so impressed with Bev's relaxed approach to helping us organise our day, nothing was too much trouble. The whole day went without a hitch and the sun even shone.

The team were more than helpful from arranging for our little flower girl to get used to the room right up to the staff serving cake and coffee outside in the courtyard.

The venue and staff were more than amazing.

We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception here and it was nothing short of perfect.

The whole day’s events went without a single issue. Beverley was on hand to handle everything, and was very accommodating with our requests.

The atmosphere of the entire hotel was excellent. The main room where we got married was amazing.... the main fire was lit and it made for a very special setting.

All staff were attentive, polite, helpful and very professional. Food was of a very high standard.

Thank you to everyone at Mortons for a flawless day.

I organised a three night stay for twenty people at the hotel for the Morgan Sports Car Club on
May Bank Holiday weekend 2013. We were made most welcome by Beverly the owner and her
staff who were very attentive. The food was top quality and prepared with imagination. It was
very much enjoyed by everyone. The car parking was great with enough room to display all the
cars together. Staying at the hotel is more like spending time in a country house and I will recommend it to everyone.

We just finished a 3 day stay with a car club

The hotel has a great feel and is run very well with very attentive staff

The food - Wow every meal was superb - all superb ingredients and just perfect

Car parking is great and they even let us use the hose pipe to clean our cars

whilst the price could be deemed a little high the location and quality of this hotel are good value for money
