Morley Hayes Hotel Internal View

Morrison Design Ltd’s architectural and interior design for the Morley Hayes Hotel in Derbyshire, has once again been ranked amongst the best hotels in the United Kingdom by the travel site TripAdvisor.

TripAdvisor Top 25 Hotels

The TripAdvisor Top 25 Hotels, placed Morley Hayes Hotel at No. 4 in the UK. For the full list, visit: www.tripadvisor.co.uk/TravelersChoice-Hotels-g186216-a_Mode.expanded

Great Hotel
“We stayed here for 3 nights and it is a fantastic hotel. Nice bars, great rooms with a really good view over the golf course.”

An Excellent Hotel
“The hotel is surrounded by the extensive scenic golf course. We had a superior room that was large, well finished and very clean.”

Morley Hayes Hotel

The 32 bedroom new build hotel by Morrison Design is set within the green belt and designed to merge into the landscape and harmonise with the existing golf club buildings. The design saw single loaded bedrooms to reduce mass, in an L-shaped plan that created a courtyard with the original farm grouping. The two-storey element is set within the contours; single-storey on the entrance façade and two-storey to the balcony rooms overlooking the golf course. The timber king post porte-cochere, the palette of natural, locally sourced materials and vernacular detailing all reflect this contextual design approach.
