My family and I have been visiting The Morningside Hotel for roughly 10 years. We go here once a year no doubt and we also had my uncle's wake here and Jon-Paul and co have always been so helpful. The rooms are always so clean and tidy and the views are lovely, especially the rooms on the bottom floor.

Checking in took us 30 seconds. Nice clean rooms. One with a sea view. The family owned hotel was very relaxed and welcoming. Any needs with regards to drinks or assistance with our onward journey was handled instantly. If we return to Babbacombe, we know where to stay.

This was our first visit to the Morningside and we were very impressed. We had a sea view room which was very comfortable and had brilliant view overlooking the bay. Breakfast was excellent and we were surprised at the size of the tables, plenty of room for plates etc, makes a change from most other places who have cramped dining... More

I organised a 70th birthday party for my partner last weekend and we stayed for that night. We had a lovely large room with sea views. Comfortable beds and well furnished. The ensuite was part wet room and was very spacious. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and the full English was delicious. I particularly want to mention the... More

We booked the facilities for a family funeral reception and 5 bedrooms for the same night. Having not had to make arrangements for these circumstances before they were made easier by the helpful and easy attitude of the owner, Jon-Paul. Nothing was too much trouble and advise was on hand to ease the process. The food was better than excellent... More

Stayed here while updating Harbourguides guide to Torbay. The views are spectacular, the rooms beautiful and the guy in charge "John Paul" tended to every need. Great value for money. All in all a great all round experience.

We stayed here in April 2016, for 2 nights. We were attending a family wedding in Torquay and this hotel was equal distance between the church and evening reception venue. Check in and check out was simple, the rooms were big, clean and beds very comfortable. We booked the family room as we went with our 2 boys, and we... More

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
