We stayed here (my husband having read about it 10 years or so ago and always wanting to visit) for a two night honeymoon. We had room 12 - a most peaceful and calm room, up at the top of the hotel with a balcony and far reaching sea views. The beds were so comfy and it was a perfect...

We have spent many happy holidays on the Isle of Wight and one of the high points has always been a visit to the Priory Bay Hotel, where we usually have a morning drink, a trip to the beach, then return for a light lunch; and occasionally we also book for an evening meal. Last Monday, holidaying in St. Helens,...

My wife and I had an amazing wedding weekend at Priory Bay hotel, we booked out the hotel with the majority of our guests staying on site - we had a fantastic time!

I've got a superoffer on Booking, so I spent really few money comparing the room, the place, the location we had...simply perfect! We ordered breakfast from the menu (not included in the price) and I think was a bit poor but for the rest nothing more to say! Geeat!

First visit to IOW. Brilliant country house hotel. Took a friend for a big unbirthday treat and had two wonderful top floor rooms to ourselves. Ralph organised a surprise unbirthday cake for our friend. Food great. Lovely beach. Helpful staff. I was able to play nine holes while the girls sipped champagne.

I say not perfect because the price charged reflects high end hotels but there were a few details wrong, like the dreadfully stained carpets, cheap plastic milk in the room, a rather depleted buffet table at breakfast. Its a shame because the potential for perfection is there with a wonderful setting, tranquil location, lovely building, great comfy bed and staff...

Very disappointing for the money. Only two sandwiches and no offer of more. Had to ask for more tea jam and cream. Unfortunately the cups were not china they were thick coffee cups. On the positive is a beautiful setting and we had a lovely afternoon.

We booked The Tithe barn for 2 nights which was labelled as self catering - despite no fridge, facilities and the place looking like a sad chalet from the 70s. The jacuzzi bath didn't work and the place was tatty and run down. Dinner was expensive and average (Dan's Kitchen in nearby St Helens was significantly better). The whole place...
