Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The surroundings are idyllic and the food is perfect’ at Tracy and Galton Blackiston’s ‘great’ restaurant-with-rooms, say regular Guide readers this year. The 17th-century country house stands in well-tended gardens in a coastal village; inside, expect a ‘friendly’ welcome from the hosts and staff members – ‘exceptional, sunshiny people’. The ‘superb’, ‘well-paced’ seven-course dinner is the main attraction, with Galton Blackiston’s ‘excellent’, inventive dishes changing according to the season. ‘The Michelin star is well earned, but it would be nice to have a lighter option than the full menu.’ Stay over in well-equipped bedrooms in the main house and in a pavilion in the grounds. ‘Our spacious room in the main building had all the amenities one expects, including a capsule coffee machine; there were soft, fluffy towels in the well-heated bathroom.’ Come morning, a ‘very good’ breakfast is served at table: grapefruit slices, muesli, a choice of egg dishes. ‘I don’t normally have a cooked breakfast, but the fried eggs and bacon were so delicious, I couldn’t resist.’ ‘So good we’ve booked to return.’ (Yvonne and Eric Kirk, Shirley Johns, Wolfgang Stroebe)

Guest comments

"We have been coming every year for many years now. This October, we enjoyed our stay very much. Our spacious room had a large bathroom, a little kitchen space, and all the amenities one expects these days. Wi-Fi is free, but slow and temperamental; the best reception was at the bedroom door. Everybody is very friendly, and the whole operation runs like clockwork. The Michelin star is well-earned. The six-course dinner typically has two meat and two smaller fish courses. My impression is that the chef does better with meat than with fish courses. With our appetites shrinking, we find six courses sometimes a bit much and the wine arrangement is too much wine. I would be happier with a four-course meal and a reduced wine arrangement. However, everybody else seemed totally happy with the six courses, and the restaurant was full to capacity every evening. Breakfast is chosen from a menu and served at the table. It is very good. Thus, after many visits to Morston Hall, we are still happy coming here and will return again in the near future.
