It’s all very different from a modern hotel. Park in the adjacent Priory car park. To check in, go down the stairs to the bar. There is no ‘reception’ as such. Our bedroom was spacious. The door had a vague relationship with the frame. Old furniture, which is as it should be. Large comfortable bed. Jackdaws squabbling outside. No telly....

We stayed at Llanthony Priory Hotel because we were competing in a riding competition at the site. I was a bit concerned when, after booking, I realised that the facilities were not ensuite. However, I needn't of worried as the the shower rooms are excellent and only a short scramble down the spiral staircase from the rooms in the Tower!...

Llanthony Priory is c800 year old building with a hotel built into the ruins. The bar is in the old crypt, some of the rooms are in one of the remaining towers, the rest being in the old house part. The whole place is a living relic. The rooms are quite basic and probably not en-suite. The staff are friendly...

This must be the only place you can stay in a 12th century ruin. The hotel is built in the remains of the ancient building, and you can walk straight out of it up the mountains to Offa's Dyke and some of the most spectacular scenery on the Welsh/English border. The breakfasts were lovely, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, among...

This must surely be one of the UK's most beautiful hotel locations, The staff live up to this; unfailingly kind and helpful. A great bar and excellent beers. But, for the moment best not to eat here. Breakfast OK although so slow. We arrived at the allotted hour of 8.30am and our breakfast was on the table 45 minutes later....

Arrived on foot from Hay on Wye , 5 hours over the Offa's Dyke Path. The view of the priory as you start to descend into the valley was amazing.

Having walked to the Priory several times over the years from Craswall we have always wanted to stay here. We finally got to do this for my birthday and we loved it. So warm and welcoming, full of atmosphere. Loved being cut off from the world for a few days. Could have stayed a lot longer... we will be back!

This is one of those distinctive, wonderful, unique hotels that one never forgets, and cannot wait to return to. The setting and building are stunning, and with some recent well judged improvements, our stay was even better than our expectations. The rooms are not clinical corporate chic. They are the result of years of gradual change, with a mix of...

We visited this spectacular location today and decided a tea and cake would be nice. So we went to the Llanthony Hotel Cafe in the grounds of the Abbey. The cafe itself was quirky and fun. The tea was good and the fruit cake delicious - but the person serving us did not seem happy to be there. A shame...
