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...

It was booked months ago and I never checked it on TripAdvisor, just thought its only one night we can wing it! but what a lovely small hotel, bright clean and airy room, En... More

A group of us hired The Morningside for a weekend; we were made very welcome. Paul, Jon-Paul and the team were very friendly and pulled out all the stops to make the weekend a success. Breakfast was great and we were well catered for. This family run hotel is being modernised and those rooms that have been redecorated are of... More

A nice hotel with stunning views,the rooms are clean and comfortable but in all honesty could do with a lick of paint as could the dining room,that said the breakfast was excellent and the staff were very friendly and efficient,would definitely stay there again.

Good value for the location. No bar or restaurant facilities but there see plenty locally. Car park a bit limited but there is free on street parking available. Breakfast a little late for a working day.
