Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The Michelin star is well earned’ at Tracy and Galton Blackiston’s friendly restaurant-with-rooms close to the north Norfolk coast. In an elegant dining room whose picture windows look out on to neat lawns, Galton Blackiston and Greg Anderson’s ‘superb’ modern menus list a daily-changing selection of ‘excellent’ dishes, perhaps North Sea Dover sole, Beaufort crust, salsify purée; Holkham Hall venison, salt-baked beetroot, cabbage, white pepper jus. With ‘lovely, helpful’ staff, ‘the whole operation runs like clockwork’: drinks and menu deliberations at 7.15 pm, dinner at 8 pm. After coffee and home-made chocolates, head to one of the bedrooms made country house comfortable with ‘all the amenities you might expect’. Rooms in the garden pavilion have a separate sitting area and a private terrace; some bathrooms have a spa bath. At breakfast, croissants are home baked, marmalade is home made, haddock and kippers come straight from the on-site smokehouse. Take a muddy walk down to the quay for ‘lovely views’ of Blakeney Point – ‘it’ll give you a good appetite for your next meal’. (WS, SJ, Minda Alexander)

Guest comments

'Amazingly gorgeous. Drama of dinner played out in fine style. Excellent wine list. Excellent breakfast too. Bedroom also excellent, with sheets and blankets. But lighting in bathroom severe. Expensive but worth it. ' - John Barnes - September, 2017
'My third visit. I expect good food in Michelin-star restaurants but Morston Hall has surpassed even two-star restaurants in my opinion. By far the best for seasonal local ingredients, and with knowledge and understanding of flavours needed to put together the seven-course tasting menu. Galton Blackiston, Greg Anderson and all the staff are friendly and enthusiastic about every aspect of your stay. ' - Ray Kirby - April, 2017
'All the staff are lovely and helpful. No lift: seniors might be more comfortable in one of the newer rooms, ground floor near the car park. A muddy walk down to Morston Qua gives a good appetite for your next meal. We enjoyed their 25-year celebration ' - Minda Alexander - March, 2017
'We have been coming every year for many years now. This October, our spacious room had a large bathroom, a little kitchen space, and all the amenities one expects these days. . Everybody is very friendly, and the whole operation runs like clockwork. The Michelin star is well-earned. Breakfast is very good. ' - Prof Wolfgang Stroebe - October, 2015
