“The perfect wedding HQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

I booked the whole hotel for two nights to accommodate 45 family relatives and friends who were attending my daughter's wedding in Studland. The hotel provided a superb dinner for the family on the Friday evening. On the morning of the wedding, seven members of bridal party held a champagne breakfast and prepared in the fabulous Elizabethan bedroom. On returning from the wedding, the hotel held the bar open for as long as we needed. The hotel staff were peerless in their desire to ensure all our needs were met. The food was exceptional. Mortons and its location added significantly to the enjoyment of a memorable and sunny weekend. Thanks to all who worked so hard.

It's difficult to know where to start with the Morton House Hotel. It is set in a beautiful location with stunning views of Corfe Castle and the surrounding Dorset countryside.
This was one of our first holidays with our 20 month- old daughter and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs- ensuring that we all felt very welcome. Our room was a good size with an enormous double bed which was very comfortable. Our room was cleaned everyday to a high standard which was impressive as we generally left our room in a bit of a state (apologies and thanks in equal measure to the cleaning staff). Indeed, on one occasion our daughters soft toys were neatly arranged in her cot and covered in a muslin as if they were asleep, which was a really thoughtful touch. The hotel also went out of its way to wash an item of clothing in double quick time to ensure our daughter could sleep that night.
The breakfast was excellent everyday and the restaurant food was exceptional and highly recommended.
All in all we had a really lovely week at The Morton House Hotel. A refreshing change from the all too familiar chain hotel and their generic feel; the Morton House Hotel combines warm, friendly hospitality with a fabulous sense of history and beauty.

We spent a truly wonderful night at the Morton House Hotel recently and the quality of service was so high I felt I must write a review note. Beverly and her team treated our little family with such kindness and attention, the hotel itself is extremely comfortable, clean and extremely attractive. I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly and will certainly return. The views from our room (The loft room) onto Corfe Castle were amazing, especially as the sun set and rose.
A great night! Thank you Beverley!

We stayed at this hotel in Corfe Castle for three nights and have to say it was one of the most charming and relaxing hotels I have stayed in. The staff were all friendly and helplful. While the food was truely delicious - and that was just the breakfast! Yes, we did have an evening meal here too, which was also magnificent. The hotel has a lovely panelled for just sitting and relaxing in, or enjoying a refreshment. Sadly our stay here went all too quickly, but we hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: The hotel offers a variety of different rooms, so there is something to suit everyone.

We stayed here one night and had a great experience. The restaurant is really good and the staff are very friendly in a lovely, relaxed way. The breakfast was exceptional - everything freshly cooked and presented beautifully.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Elizabethan Room which has a four-poster bed.

We found Mortons House Hotel on Secret Escapes and booked it due to the charming pictures. When we arrived, the hotel, the friendly staff and the chef exceeded our expectations.

At the reception we had a very warm welcome and throughout our stay the staff were charming and very helpful. Being only a short walk from Corfe Castle, it was ideally located for visits to the castle and the surrounding beaches.

After a long day a choice of delicious meals and wines was waiting for us. We had lunch and dinner at the hotel and both times we agreed that this was by far the best food we ever had (especially the steak).

After our holiday we came back home well rested and will certainly return to the Mortons House Hotel in the near future.

After a continuous residency period of 27 months I finally said cheers to the Management and Staff at Mortons House early in 2013. During this period I would spend 4 nights each week at the Hotel, and found it easy to integrate into the local community!

The Hotel amenities are maintained to a very high standard, and the principles of this very hospitable Hotel are upheld by a Management team of hands-on Owners that lead the way. The Staff are without doubt both polite, and very accommodating, always focused on meeting the needs of their guests.

The Hotel will gladly cater for all walks of life, and everyone that stays will be made to feel welcome. It provides a range of services that certainly aligns with its star rating, and an ambiance that fits particularly well into this 16th Century Elizabethan building. The character portrayed within this Hotel is more refined and cultured, rather than the hustle and bustle found in a typical chain Hotel

I only stayed in a few rooms during my time at the Hotel, spending most of this in Room 2. Nevertheless it was clear that each room has retained its own identity, and is fully equipped with an en-suit and Wi-Fi access.

Would I go back? Yes of course, the Hotel combined with what the local community has to offer you’ll never become bored.

Corfe is an ideal location for those wanting to wind down and relax, try out some interesting local pubs, take a stroll over some picturesque countryside (including some SSSI area), or just sit on anyone of the local beaches to catch a tan. For the kids and young at heart, there is the steam train that runs between Corfe and Swanage, the Bovington Tank Museum, Castle ruins, and much much more. Corfe can become a little overrun with visitors during Bank Holidays and other special occasions, but this just adds to the local vibe.
