Plenty of parking. Good room - we booked a superior room and got a six foot bed and ample space in the room. Everything was fine for us. We only had bed and breakfast and the service and food were acceptable. We did have difficulty getting the heating put on when we were in our room. We were told the...

Getting the family together from four corners of the country is not easy but the Priory made it more than worth-while and a great occasion for 20 of us. Pre-lunch drinks were attractive and well served. We had four beautifully set tables in the Conservatory with views down to the garden. The pre-ordered choice from a selection of four for...

Had a wonderful birthday dinner with all the family in a Private Dining Room. Food was excellent and the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The bedrooms are very spacious. We all had a fantastic time and would definitely revisit.

From the moment we were greeted by Anna & Stephan to our departure the service was incredible and food amazing. We booked a table of 11 and was offered the conservatory as our own private room over looking fabulous manicured gardens. Arrival drinks for all, including incredible children's cocktails which went down very well. Great food and service all evening...

Our room was in the garden annexe ( no. 11). It was tired & dated & lacked the 2 most important essentials for a pleasant stay i.e a refreshing shower- the water flow was so poor it was unsuitable for hair washing & barely general washing & a decent bed- this was too hard for restful sleep and the mattress...

Had a pleasant stay with the lovely staff at the priory. They were all friendly, helpful and attentive. Breakfast was good, and the staff were patient even though we arrived a little late. Rooms were clean and comfortable. I'd stay again. Thank you

Situated just on the outskirts of the town The Priory is actually in quite a good position to get into Bury town centre. Very friendly staff and a reasonable restaurant, but as with most hotels, the menu looks better than the finished product on your plate. The main problem with this hotel was the room. Basically comfortable, but when the...
