Came up to Durham from Manchester to visit some family and came to the Morritt for dinner. We took a seat in the bar area and had a couple of drinks while we had a look through the menu. We were given an amuse-bouche, a parfait of some sort, a smooth and tasty way to wet our appetite. I had...

We stopped overnight while returning from a visit down south as we wanted to visit the Bewes Museum. We booked online and got a special rate however, our room was very small and as far from the dining room as it was possible. Given the hotel was really quiet why not put us in a room closer to reception. The...

Very pretty room and lovely shower. We had a very nice lunch in the bar which is very interesting with links to...

Stopped on the 23rd Dec for a pre Christmas evening at one of our favourite hostelries. Dinner was fabulous as always, the Hogget was a delight. A dessert amouse bouche is always appreciated. So much skill on display. Thanks for a lovely stay

We had stoped off here en route to Catterick and had an excellent stay. The room was spacious, although strangely it did not have any drawer storage! The bed was large and extremely comfortable. The shower was powerful and hot. The wifi was very good. We ate in the bar and the food was excellent. The bar itself was very...
