We stayed here for a night, and both the evening meal in the bistro and the breakfast were super - smoked salmon and prawn salad, rhubarb rice pudding, and fresh fruit, more smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and gf toast for breakfast. There was a good choice, and the kitchen staff understand how to cater for gf customers well -... More

This hotel is a rare find; full of interest and fascination. It is historical and rambling although tired in certain areas, but it is unique! Although Charles Dickens did not actually stay here, he did know the Morritt family and he did stay just across Greta Bridge, at 'The George' coaching inn on 31st January 1838. I stayed here on...

Stayed overnight as part of a wedding party! Wedding was fantastic although the majority was down to the bride who decorated the venue amazingly! The service and food were on point, not one conplaint. The drinks are a tad overpriced but thats what happens in these kind of places. The hotel is well maintained for an old building. I have...

We called in on a Sunday lunchtime for a bar meal. Although the dining room was very busy there were tables available in the bar area where we enjoyed a snack lunch. Service was good and we were well looked after. The gardens are very attractive, only downside is a rather prominent smell of drains near the car park....

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome. After checking us in the receptionist then showed us to our room. Although the room was at the rear of the hotel we still had views over the neighbouring field with grazing sheep. The room was a reasonable size and was very bright and clean. The en-suite was...

Arrived at 2pm for a four hour spa visit. The spa facility is modern and clean with helpful staff. We also booked an extra mud treatment which was really enjoyable. All in all a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. We then retired to our spacious room. A typical room but a comfy bed and really nice bathroom. The package... More

I would definitely recommend this place. Lovely room. Friendly receptionist. Wasn't to noisy either. Breakfast is brilliant as well. Only downside was the shower. I would go there again but for longer. The place had such great surroundings

Visited the Morritt for a nights stay as we saw it advertised on last minute! We paid for the country lane getaway and I was little hesitant after reading some reviews here but what can I say! Everything from start to finish was great minus a couple of small niggles! The lady on the reception was lovely, very helpful by... More
