Chosen for its trip advisor ratings, Mount Morris House lived up to the excellent reviews. We were in the Sage room on the first floor, beautifully appointed with large double bed and huge marble bathroom. This is one of the cooler, quieter rooms, so a super choice for the high season. The open library on the ground floor is a spectacular room which provided a delightful space one evening whilst sheltering from the storm. European visitors should understand that the Mount Morris is more 'serviced rooms' than bed and breakfast. Breakfast (and other meals) can be taken at one of the local coffee shops or cafés - although fresh coffee, a wide range of tea and biscuits are always available in the galley kitchen. Vasili was a charming and helpful host, discrete but available if needed. Harlem proved to be fascinating. We followed the house suggestions and visited 'Il Cafe Latte' for breakfast, with highlights at the 'Red Rooster' and 'Lenox Lounge'. Internet access was patchy away from the library, and during our stay access to the dining room (shown in the visitors' gallery) was not available for guests. But for anyone wanting a touch of luxury, style and comfort in a fascinating location with a great host, look no further than the Mount Morris House.
