“A very special stay”

We were upgraded, which was totally unexpected, and it was lovely. The best fillet steak ever, it was amazing. We had dinner in the hotel and I couldn’t fault it, sweets were fantastic especially the sticky toffee pudding.

“A favourite place for a winter break”

This was our third visit and we were delighted to find Mortons House as good as ever. We were given a warm welcome by staff who remembered us. Pre-dinner drinks by the log fire in the Oak Room were a real treat. Dinners were delicious; The scallop starter was superb.

“Excellent break!”

Just returned from a 2 night stay with dinner and what a fantastic place. Rooms spotless and comfortable. Couple of minutes’ walk to the castle, and lots of lovely walks and places close by. Would be happy to recommend to anyone.

“Wonderful weekend break”

The staff are what make this place so lovely, they make the place come alive. Our meal was delicious and made for such a special evening. Breakfast was equally as good with homemade bread and a great cooked breakfast. Well worth the visit for a relaxed break.
