We booked the conservatory for 30 people last night for a family celebration. The view across the sea is great. We booked a buffet that was superb, everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it. The service was great and I would recommend the venue to anyone .

Stayed at the Moringside Hotel recently and had an absolutely fantastic time there. We could not fault the service or facilities at all. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we enjoyed every part of our stay there. John Paul and all the other staff were brilliant..

Booked last minute and stayed for one night in a family room. Comfortable bed and ticked all the boxes for our 2 day visit to Babbacombe. Room was quite hot at night due to humid temperatures. Lovely breakfast in the morning and easy car parking on site. We love Babbacombe so will return in the near future.

This is our sixth year of visiting the Morningside and the only thing we can say is to read the five reviews we have already posted because the high standard of services has been maintained over all these years and everything we have written still applies. All we can add is all being well we will be back next year.

Stopped for a quick cup of tea after a trip on the cliff railway, just as it had started to rain. The staff were friendly and unintrusive, whilst the price was reasonable too Clean and tidy with a nice view towards the sea.

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
