Nice old building and grounds, the food was good and a wide selection, and fresh. I stayed in the annex - cottage - and not in the main building as there was a wedding on site. The room was large and well equipped but not modern. Clean and comfortable though. Large bath tub. Staff was nice.

Booked for Valentines Night and was as impressed as ever. A warm welcome and super service despite the place being very busy. Restaurant staff are well organised and the food is fresh and well cooked. Definitely a place to return time and again.

Stayed here for one night, had a lovely quiet nights sleep, room was in really condition, and the breakfast was first class. Would recommend the hotel, , not cheap, in a quiet location in a lovely town of Caerleon.

The atmosphere and service was good and so was the fish. We both had Lemon Sole which was cooked to perfection and washed down with a...

We visited the Priory for a family birthday and it was absolute lovely. The staff were great, and the food (Sunday dinner) was beautiful - loads of veggies and the beef was melt in the mouth. The only bad thing was there wasn't enough bread with the pate, but that's hardly a major thing 😉 We had a great time,...

Got here around 7:30pm on a Saturday evening chucking it down with rain. Missed the hotel at first as pictures make it look like it's in the country but it's actually on the main town road - pictures are of back of hotel. So back around the one-way system and parked opposite in the Pay and Display They do have...

We chose from the 2 courses for £11.95. There were about 5 starters and mains to choose from and the menu was varied and well thought out. The service was excellent and efficient given that it was busy. I had the chicken pate to start which was great, but only came with 1 small piece of bread. The chicken with...

Comfortable room opening on to the gardens. Dinner very good but take a torch! we had a table for two tucked away at the back out of reach of the main lights! Nevertheless an enjoyable stay. Hope to visit again.
