My clients chose Moresby Hall as the venue for two intensive conference days of training. I spent three days altogether: both as a resident and primarily running training and networking events for the client's staff. As a lone female executive I often find I am isolated in a hotel: I don't know anyone and it can be awkward to strike...

A splendid review, thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. I know you are used to travelling and setting up for your training with clients but we do try to ascertain what we can do to make things run exactly as required for conferences & meetings. Thinking ahead (and helping as much as we can)...

I booked Moresby Hall asa surprise for my Partner's birthday and we weren't disappointed. The hall itself was lovely and our room was absolutely beautiful. We had the Copeland suite, which was incredibly spacious and had the most amazing bed I've ever seen, it was huge! I couldn't fault anything with the place at all. We had a gorgeous meal...

One of the nicest parts of our work at Moresby Hall is welcoming guests when there is a celebration for their stay. To see such a lovely review really makes my heart fly, even after 17 years I still get tremendous pride in seeing how happy our guests are. We enjoy meeting visitors, and really appreciate their custom which enables...

So surprised and sorry to see this negative review. Of the eight tables booked on Sunday the feedback was excellent, each table was served the same food. You didn't say a word on the day which any proprietor would wish for to be able to rectify any perceived issues. For every table cleared we always ask if all is OK...

From the time of booking to the final departure after a 3 night stay we were made to feel special. I have never had any hotel, B&B etc ever call me to discuss my reservation with a view to make our stay comfortable and memorable. Nothing was too much trouble when we descended upon Moresby Hall to celebrate my father's...

How wonderful to have your family review. I know you were anxious for this family get together to be successful especially with some guests travelling from Canada to celebrate your most charming father's 80th birthday. I can only say it was a great pleasure to liaise with you, as success is always in the planning and we both wanted a...

Our stay was a birthday treat for my fiancé and a stopover on our way to Scotland. I chose Moresby Hall as I was struck by its age and history. It is a handsome and imposing building with beautiful gardens and outside space. It has a rich and interesting past and has been sympathetically restored and furnished. We were warmly...

What a fantastic find! We stayed here for the weekend and will definitely be back! We came to this area to hike Scafell Pike -The hall is perfectly located to make the most of being close to the sea but not far from the hills.

My previous visit was whilst on business in the area and thought then how nice it would be to return with my wife. So this was the perfect opportunity. We consequently had a relaxing short holiday at the end on a busy year. Jane, David and the team looked after us in splendid surroundings. Nothing was too much trouble.

Fantastic, I'm so glad you were happy with your single night stay.

Only stayed for one night, me and my partner had a 2 and half hour drive. When we were arrived we were welcomed by the owner. The room was lovely, old fashioned but everything was in good condition.
