Front facing rooms have amazing views across the Babbacombe downs. Returned several times and love the place. Stunning in summer time but equally great all year round when open. Lovely owners too. Rooms are of a good standard and the whole place does what it says on the tin. Nice hearty breakfast in a beautiful setting looking out across the... More

Room was nice service was good until the end. Was told none of the bill was paid in a rude way when some of it was. Finally got sorted out. Talked with Paul about this lady that turned out to be his mother and was told to get out and door was slammed in my face. Also seemed like they... More

The breakfast was to the usual high standard and the variety of snacks and drinks available during the day are sufficient for your needs. nothing much to add to our previous reports other than...

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.

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
