'Immediately made to feel welcome. We much enjoyed our visit to Mortons House Hotel. It is a very well run hotel with very friendly yet efficient staff who work together to create a harmonious atmosphere. The decor is very well designed, in the best of country house style, and in keeping with the history of the building. Our room was very comfortable. The quality of the bed linen and towels was of a very high standard. The hotel is in a superb location with stunning views of Corfe Castle and the countryside, and the town itself is full of interest. We mostly enjoyed the food. ' - TS,Devon, Aug 2010

'We recently spent a wonderful few days at this lovely hotel. Our room had a view of the castle and was very comfortable. The food is a definate plus, delicious, beautifully presented, and very reasonably priced. You've got some great walks on the doorstep and the beach is only a few miles away. Just wished we could have stayed longer but we'll be back. ' - BB,Devon,

'Recently stayed here for 3 nights. Staff were friendly and attentive, food was very good, especially considering the numbers to be served in a short space of time. Free WiFi a plus. Rooms were available designed for disabled/wheelchair access. Great location in the village, close to Corfe Castle and Steam Railway station. Hiking routes accessible from the hotel door. Very pleasant stay. ' - IH,Hampshire,

'My husband and myself stayed for three nights and used this lovely hotel as a base for three days walkling in the Purbecks. We had two wonderful dinners, where Eddie,the Chef, and Amy, the Restaurant Manager, produced fabulous three course dinners to groups averaging 16 in number. All the staff were helpful, in particular the chamber maids. Beverley had made great efforts throughout the planning for this celebration trip. We must also mention how happy Scamp, our Jack Russell,was to be collected to go to his foster family arranged by Happy Hounds. A real gem, offering quaint, comfortable accomodation with modern touches. Thank you ' - Hilary.C.Dorset,
