Wedding day at the morritt
There isn’t enough room here to describe our experience in a few words I can only really say that The Morritt hands down executed the most extraordinary experience ever for us for our wedding and through the long exhausting 2 and a half year experience we’ve had in making our wedding perfect. It was perfect and more and I can’t thank the team, staff, recommended retailers, locals and everyone involved in the Cullip wedding enough for making our wedding perfectly amazing and beautiful!! Jonathan and the team we’re wonderful! If I could I’d do it all again but slower. Ps: the chef is amazing! It’s no wonder the restaurant is a 4 ** AA restaurant absolutely amazing food!! - for our full story you’ll have to email firstname.lastname@example.org .. too many people to thank and appreciate!Sent on 01/10/2019

Married at The Morritt
We are absolutely thrilled with every aspect of the day; both day and evening. Our minor guest issues were promptly dealt with and we felt totally at ease and in the loop at all times. Many guests commented on how beautiful the food was. The staff were friendly and helpful and many guests have also commented on how the process of checking in, breakfast, the various areas to relax etc. really enhanced their enjoyment of the weekend.Sent on 21/08/2019
We had a lot of guests from all over the world staying at the hotel and they've all been so well looked after and accommodated throughout - even after our bar tab ran out! I hear some didn't go to bed until 3am!
The evening entertainment was fantastic with a few great surprises thrown in which we really appreciated, as did our guests. There was a great variety of music and the dance floor got really busy which is always the sign of a good time!
If we could do it all again, we wouldn't change a thing and that is thanks to this amazing team.

The perfect day
Our wedding day at the Morritt was absolutely perfect. Getting married at 4pm, we thought it might be a bit tight and things might get rushed but Johnathon and the rest of the staff made sure that the day ran so smoothly and everyone had an amazing time. The venue looked stunning - we got married outside and it looked beautiful. After the ceremony there was a bbq which went down extremely well with our guests, washed down by quite a few drinks at the bar and a proper party! My new wife and I loved every second. Thank you to the Morritt for making our day so special!Sent on 14/08/2019
