“Very nice.....but very expensive !!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Have to say £500 plus for 2 nights in a standard double room at this hotel did not represent good value !! So beware,also be careful if you book with Booking.Com as the hotel do not honour the same deal as they do if you book privately,I realise the property has to pay commission to B.Com but even so think its a tad mean to not include the wine or half bottle of champagne-we still paid the same price!
To pour oil on troubled waters we noticed that glasses of red wine had been added to our account (We don't drink red wine) and when we emailed the hotel they said the bar girl had pressed the wrong button and it should have said 'white wine' ....I don't often write negative reviews,but felt rather miffed about this ..Food great,receptionists lovely xx

Room Tip: Maybe ask for rooms facing the castle ?

Great hotel for Valentines Weekend including their Valentines Dinner, food very good and lives up to their two rosettes, staff were very pleasant and high service standards - only downside is that the breakfast service is only an hour (8.30 - 9.30 am) at weekends

A beautiful hotel in a wonderfully picturesque village.
Booked the Loft Room for a two night stay including Valentines dinner on the Friday night. Room was extremely comfortable with window views onto Corfe Castle. Dinner was superb with lots of different flavours and tastes. The day times were spent visiting many local tourists spots like Sandbanks and Swanage.
Hope to go back with the kids in the near future.

My wife and I enjoyed a most comfortable and restful Sunday night at the hotel after taking advantage one of the few sunny days of late January this year, walking part of the coast path around Worth Matravers. The hotel reception and waiting staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and very attentive without being intrusive. We ate in, and enjoyed a well prepared, delicious and lovingly presented 3 course meal. Our waitress suggested the wine and we were well pleased. The room was spacious, quiet and the bed comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was generous and set us up well for the day. All in all a most pleasant experience. We will book again.

I have just returned from my dear friends wedding which was held at Mortons House Hotel. The wedding was beautiful and the day was fantastic. I only stayed over night at the hotel but from the beginning of my stay to the end was perfect. The staff are so friendly and very welcoming and go above and beyond to make your stay the best. The rooms are amazing, so clean and the decore is just beautiful. Food is great. I would recommend this Mortons Hotel for any occasion, it is full of charm.

My wife and I enjoyed three relaxing nights here in a very wet January. While our exploring of the Isle of Purbeck was limited by the awful weather this was compensated for my relaxing in front of the log fire in a large and welcoming lounge and then enjoying three delicious dinners.

The food was truly outstanding in quality (dinner and breakfast too). We felt we'd eaten really well without over doing it - e.g. the breakfast is a sensible plate-full,carefully prepared, rather than piled high to binge on - as in many English hotels!

Their January half price offer gave us really good value too!

The staff are welcoming without being over-bearing. We went home really refreshed and hope to visit Mortons House again, perhaps in better weather!

We stayed for two nights at Mortons House and found it absolutely delightful. Owner/staff were very friendly and welcoming; the location, with views of the Castle is superb; the room was very comfortable; the food was superb; the paneled lounge with the log fire was ideal for the time of year.

A really lovely break.

We would thoroughly recommend the hotel.
