More about Mory House

Little Gem

by TripAdvisor Member NorthamptonCobbler

Booked on the basis of hotel website-and you get exactly what it says on the tin!! Spotlessly clean, (including shower cubicle), and better breakfast cannot be available anywhere. Very helpful hosts. Would certainly stay again.

Fresh approach to B&B

by TripAdvisor Member david_drage

We have stayed six times at Mory House and never been disappointed. The house is as delightful now as when it first opened. The rooms are extremely comfortable, and the breakfasts far exceed what is expected of a B&B. The house is ideally situated close to the beautiful beach of Southbourne.
We'd recommend anyone to stay here when visiting the area.

A Luxury Guest House at a reasonable price

by TripAdvisor Member estickpeter

My wife and I stopped at Moray House for three nights in Sept. 2008. This was our second visit. Compared to other B & B's this was exceptional in every respect. The bedroom was delightful with excellent facilities and the breakfast was cooked to a high standard with plenty of choice. Pat, Jayne, Roger and Wendy made us feel very welcome, recommending and booking restaurants for us. We shall certainly return again to Moray House. Peter and Jill Estick. Coventry.

Mory House... Does exactly what it says on the tin

by TripAdvisor Member DingDongitsmeagain

We have taken a large number of short breaks on the coast and inland over a number of years and regrettably had become fed up with the standard of many hotels… old fixtures and fittings, poor cleaning, badly cooked meals, woken up in the night by stag or hen parties, over inflated prices… I guess we’ve all been there at some time or other. When you work hard for your money and find that you have time for a short break you really look forward to it and it’s completely demoralising to find that you have wasted your money on a sub-standard hotel that failed completely to deliver on it’s slick advertising. We decided that we had nothing to lose and have more recently tried opting for a smaller hotel or B&B and quite honestly since changing our approach we have yet to suffer any disappointment… each and every one of the smaller B&B’s has been a great experience, at much lesser cost than a large hotel.

We stayed at Mory House for 2 nights at the beginning of June this year and we would certainly emphasise the previous reviewers statements that the house is maintained to a first class standard and kept spotlessly clean. We were shown to our room on the ground floor and as soon as we entered it was immediately obvious that a great deal of thought and care had been employed in the design and decoration of the room and that the room had been furnished with fixtures and fittings to a really good standard. The house was lovely throughout, the breakfast was great - freshly cooked, no stag parties banging on doors waking you up at all hours of the night, it has to be said that both the house and the family who run it complement each other… really nice house - really nice family. Mory House is definitely the best of some good B&B’s that we have visited in more recent times and I find it difficult to believe that it could be bettered… if this B&B was the benchmark for U.K. standards then our tourism industry would thrive.

As soon as we arrived home we sorted out a date and immediately booked a return visit in September… staying at Mory House again for 4 nights in early September 2008 and found this, our second visit, to be just as good as the first one earlier in the year. Warm greeting upon arrival, lovely room to stay in which was well maintained and spotlessly clean, wonderful breakfast that was beautifully cooked, first class B&B in a nice quiet location with excellent hosts. Everything was perfect, couldn't be faulted, we will definitely stay at Mory House again.

In a nutshell… when you look at the Mory House Website, have no fears – it does exactly what it says on the tin.

Lovely Mory House

by TripAdvisor Member GloucesterTeddybears

We travelled here for an early Autumn break from our home in Gloucester.
We were so pleasantly surprised by the quiet comfort of this beautifully presented guest house. Our room was very comfortable, with a small en-suite shower room.
Everywhere was immaculately clean, and breakfast offered good choice, quantity and quality.
Mory house is family run, friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for the owners.
The house is situated in a tree lined avenue, and is literally only a few minutes walk down the cliff path to the lovely sandy beach.
We intend to return, as we enjoyed our stay here very much.

A real treat!

by TripAdvisor Member Vorgan

We have just returned from a lovely weekend stay at Mory House. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome and shown to our lovely rooms, which were spacious and comfortable.

The breakfast served up was second to none and certainly set you up for a day exploring what the area had to offer.

Everything attention to detail had been covered by the owners.

Wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend Mory House to family and friends

'Chic Boutique'

by TripAdvisor Member shortlandnj

It was a pleasure to stay at Mory House, which was one of the most comfortable nights away that i have ever had, my room was beautifully presented and you notice details that, in my opinion put Mory House in the 'chic boutique' sector by combining subtle imaginative decor with a warm welcome

Thank you for wonderful time.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mory House as a first-class destination to anyone.

Very Welcoming

by TripAdvisor Member Mummy1London

My husband and I stayed there with our 4 months old baby, on arrival the owners were extremely welcoming. This was the first time away with our baby, which could have been a stressful experience, but it was not. The room was very pleasent with more than enough room for our travel cot and a lovely temp for the baby. Mory House is excellent value for money, serving a lovely breakfast. We would certainly use it again, as my family live round the corner and we visit them often.
