Stayed here 9th July for a couple of nights. Lovely bright and airy room on the front with stunning views. Breakfast - full English was lovely and hot and plenty of it. Tried a cream tea in the gardens and that was delicious too with lovely warm scones and lots of clotted cream. Would certainly recommend the Morningside hotel.

Just visited the Morningside for lunch for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the Pate with salad and mum had quiche with potatoes and salad and both dishes were great. Will definitely visit again. Good value too at £17 with two coffees.

Second stay here and won't be the last. The staff are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The view at breakfast over the downs is the perfect start to the day. Cereal, fruit and cooked breakfast all available. The rooms are quiet and reasonably priced. Both my mum and I are looking forward to returning soon.

The location of this hotel is perfect in every way. The views are outstanding. Our room overlooked the bay front and the views were breathtaking. Terrific walking areas all along the beachfront. Close to all amenities. Hotel staff very friendly, lovely breakfast in a dining room overlooking the water, doesn't get any better. Wouldn't stay anywhere else and we will... More

We actually stayed in April not June but I wanted to let people know how lovely this place is. (My husband and brother stayed there again later in the year). We were a party of six and booked 4 rooms - all different in style but all very nice and clean. We had a very large room with a sea... More

We stayed 22nd to 25 Aug family of 4, 2 adults and a 6 and 2 yr old. On arrival staff couldnt find our booking but was soon sorted out and we had a nice family room on the first floor.
