    Unfortunately a very boisterous wedding party made merry until 12.30 and three buses started their engines under our window and a great deal of noise was made boarding. By 1.30 am they had departed but two old pensioners did not have a good nights sleep.

  • Older travelers

    Potential for a very good venue, but compromised by catering for both weddings and guests with a consequent loss of service.

    restaurant service was 1 1/2 hours for 2 courses. seating restricted on a time basis. food was poor and small portions

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The reception staff were very welcoming and efficient. The restaurant staff and the food were of high standard.

    The 4 poster bed in our room (no. 3) was a bit of a let down appearing to be a modern imitation made of moulded fibre glass with indistinct "carvings". Disappointing in comparison with the antique furniture throughout the rest of the hotel.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The room (Number 1), the breakfast, the bar meal, the garden, the surrounding countryside and the very helpful friendly staff.

    Having to leave!!!!

    Location, facilities, old fashioned charm.

    The staff were all very helpful and attentive . Food was of high standard lots of walks on the door step but minutes away by car from Barnard Castle & Bowes Museum and lots of antique shops.

    Stayed at the holtel to attend a wedding, which we enjoyed very much. Good location and garden for photos and relaxing afterwords. Good food and service with friendly, helpful staff.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The reception by the staff was very good. The room and quality of the food was equally excellent.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Friendly staff, access and surroundings.

    Menu the same every night. The food was good and well presented but became boring. The hotel was quite close to the A66 but this was not mentioned. With the windows shut this was not a problem but could be on a hot night although when the trees were is leaf this would probably mask the noise.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Agreat place to get away from it all. Stunning countryside and walks but not far from a town, I can only call our stay at the Morrit a life enchancing experience. Want to go again and recommend it highly.

    Good location on A66, few miles from Scotch Corner, and very welcoming. Excellent breakfast with home made jams.

    Stopped serving food at 9pm & could only choose soup & sandwich or salad despite ringing ahead to advise of our late arrival & arriving just a few minutes after 9.

  • Single

    The food was very good, the room warm and comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for bath/shower.

  • Older travelers

    peace & quiet

    I would have prefered a bath not shower

  • Couple
    9.2

    food was excellent, couldnt be better. room was very comfortable. lovely big bed. staff were very good

    beams in room too low. my husband banged his head several times. food menu was too cleverly written. there was no clear explanation to dishes and the pricing was silly eg something for £7.00 was written 7 pounds. i feel this should be changed it would make the menu more appealing and inviting

    The food

    Sub standard for price of room
