Good Hotel Guide Review

‘An amazingly gorgeous hotel,’ writes a reader this year, of Tracy and Galston Blackiston’s restaurant-with-rooms, ‘ideally located’ for a seal trip to Blakeney Point. Bedrooms in the main house are in traditional country house style; those in the garden pavilion more contemporary, with separate sitting area and private terrace. ‘Our room was excellent, with sheets and blankets, fresh milk in the minibar.’ Bathroom lighting was ‘a bit severe’. Some bathrooms have a spa bath, a monsoon shower. In the dining room overlooking the garden, guests sit down to a daily-changing menu of Michelin-starred cooking by Mr Blackiston and Greg Anderson. ‘No choice, but the seven-plus-course dinner is delightful. Everything seems to be made on the premises, including delicious bread.’ It is served with due ceremony, being ‘indeed a sort of drama, with meticulously dressed staff producing items like clockwork’. Sample dishes: salt-baked celeriac, Baron Bigod cheese; Earl Stonham Wagyu beef, bordelaise sauce; hazelnut bavarois, chocolate sorbet. Breakfast delivers freshly squeezed orange juice, free-range eggs, home-smoked haddock – ‘the best I’ve ever had’. (John Barnes)

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
