Travelling with elderly parents we asked for ground floor rooms. Lovely view over babbacombe downs to the sea. Two minutes to the cliff railway & cafe. Hanbury's fish & chips round the corner.Beautiful big rooms and refurbished bathroom with walk in shower. Small additions would have made it perfect - two squashy armchairs for the parents so they didn't fight... More

Stayed 6/6/14 - 9/6/14 for the third time. Excellent accomodation, top class breakfasts looking out over Lyme Bay and lovely hosts ensures that I and my family will return time and again when visiting Babbacombe.

We stayed from Thursday until Sunday attending a weddings here on Saturday 5th may 2014, the rooms were comfortable and well appointed with tea and coffee facilities in the room and some having rooms overlooking the sea. The staff were all very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. We had... More

We have stayed at The Morningside on a previous occasion and could not fault the Hotel, however having booked a sea view room via The Morningside Website on 28th February 2014 for one nights stay on 3rd May 2014, and having this booking confirmed by e-mail, some weeks later I had reason to phone the hotel direct because the deposit...

Just returned from a weekend stay celebrating a family birthday. We all had a fantastic time. The food was excellent as was the accommodation. The hotel is really lovely, warm and homely and very clean. All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive. Child friendly too. Thank you John Paul for looking after us all so well and for catering... More

Set in a perfect location, first impressions of this hotel were very good and it was obvious that money had recently been spent on improvements to the exterior and ground floor rooms. Unfortunately, when going upstairs, it was equally obvious that the funds had run dry and no effort had been put into room renovations. Musty smell, mouldy grouting in... More

We recently spent 2 nights at the Morningside Hotel with our 13 year old son. Firstly we were very pleased to have a room with a double and a full size single bed. Often family rooms just have a pull out bed which for older children/teenagers aren't big enough, so this was just perfect. The hotel was quiet, the beds... More

Had a lovely weekend stay in the Morningside a few weeks ago, excellent rooms with staff that catered to our every needs. Beautiful views of the bay, with lots to do in the surrounding area. The Consevatory cafe was wonderful with exceptional food, views and staff who were happy to help. Would definitely go back in the future.

we stayed there back at easter, and we had a great time. the bed was creaky, and there was a constant noise of seagulls in the morning, but we had a lovely time and would go back at a drop of a hat. the location was brilliant, with plenty to do in Babbacombe itself, and Torquay was only a 30...
