“A delightful room and you MUST eat in the restaurant!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

My wife and I recently stayed in the Corfe Castle area over a long weekend for a wedding. We ate in Mortons House Restaurant on the Friday night and this certainly lives up to its two AA rosette status. We had a drink while browsing the menu in the bar area and it was varied and modern - I ordered the pork belly and scallops, followed by pork fillet/cheek with a cassoulet of beans and spinach, whereas my wife ordered smoked ham hock ravioli with pea veloute, followed by breast of chicken with a wild mushroom risotto. Both courses were immaculately presented and full of flavour - also, the owners try to source food locally where possible. Dessert was vanilla rice pudding with Armagnac prunes, and coconut and lime parfait - delicious. We retired for coffee in the lounge which provided the perfect end to the evening. The accommodation was comfortable and traditional - we had a good night's sleep and the bathroom was spacious and well appointed. Breakfast on Sunday morning, in the main dining room, was very nice - the thick cut bacon rasher and perfectly poached egg being the highlight. I would definitely recommend Mortons House for a special weekend away - and eating in the restaurant is an absolute MUST!

We had one night here to celebrate our wedding anniversary - the whole experience was made extra special for us by the attention to detail by all at Mortons House Hotel (especially the restaurant staff ) The room was lovely and full of character and charm and our only regret was we only stayed for one night! The meal in the restaurant was faultless and the food was of excellent quality, complimented by the attentive waitresses - nothing was too much trouble and we would reccomend Mortons House to anyone who appreciates quality and style.

Room Tip: The Elizabethan room is expensive but worth it for a special occasion

I took my 91 year old mother to the hotel for a relaxing break and we both thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay. The accommodation was perfect for her limited mobility and the gardens and grounds were tranquil and peaceful. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was excellent - good menu choices both at breakfast and in the evening. Excellent location for short visits to many areas of natural beauty. We would certainly visit again.

We really enjoyed our short stay in Corfe
The staff provided very attentive service and all is of a high standard throughout
Food and hotel surroundings were a delightful experience
The only problem we encountered was the room window wouldn't close and couldn't be fixed- all part of the charm of the old building! We would certainly visit again
The nearby Purbeck Way was one ofthe best walks I have done in years

We look forward to returning some time. We stayed 2 nights on 16 & 17 July. It is very elegant place to stay with friendly and helpful staff. The food was excellent, starting with the best cream teas we can remember having. We dined in on the second night and were delighted with the quality of the food served and the menu choices. Breakfasts had full marks as well. We were in room 15, which was fine in this hot weather, but next time around we would probably look for a room with more natural light. One minor criticism - the water flow from the shower was weak.

We stayed for a short break. The building itself is a grand old house and although the decor is not to my taste, it enhanced the building. The food was excellent and all of the staff were welcoming, helpful and smiley. It was extremely hot during our stay and although the room was not air conditioned the night time temperature was no more unbearable than it would have been at home - probably because the windows opened properly.. Sitting out on the Terrace with good food, good wine in such lovely surroundings was an ideal way to unwind.

Lovely interesting building set in a quintessentially English village - the perfect place to relax. From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and treated as special by the owner and every member of his staff. Our room was quite spacious and fine for a four day break, albeit that wardrobe space was somewhat restricted and the shower had less pressure than we are used to. Eating was a joy and, although the menu doesn't change, they offer, given notice, to cook what you want. There was plenty to choose from and it was brilliantly appetising and cooked and presented to a most pleasingly high standard. Service was excellent and thoughtful, but never too formal.
This is an ideal base for Corfe Castle, Swanage, the Studland beaches and the Arne nature reserve and they certainly haven't seen the last of us!
