This is a boutique hotel that has a great reputation, but seems now very over-priced and rather formulaic - staff are attentive, but as if from central casting for an episode of Downton Abby. Nice if you like that kind of thing, otherwise, can be over-the-top! Really lovely gardens. Food OKish. Scones at tea perhaps a little stale? Dinner menu...

We attended a wedding reception here on Saturday. As the weather forecast wasn't good we popped in on the Friday to ask about parking. I explained we were attending a wedding reception and asked if we could park and perhaps leave the car there overnight. The receptionist was quite abrupt in saying no! They needed parking for their restaurant guests,...

I took my wife here for a belated Mother's Day present. We had the set menu from the Sunday lunch menu. The food was good but the service was excellent. Would recommend this for anyone looking to treat someone special.

We stayed here after a break of some 15 years and were delighted to find that the room, the service and the hotel were as charming as ever and the food was possibly even nicer than we remembered. We took the Heron Suite in the old boathouse, which was the same room as we had all those years ago -...

Went to The Priory Hotel over a long weekend for a special occasion. We booked one of the boathouse suites which was just by the river. Really enjoyed our stay there. Had dinner in one of the evenings which was also very nice. I though our suite was quite pricy compared to what we've expected to get for the price...

This hotel is located in a superb location with wonderful gardens down to the river and we were anticipating a very enjoyable stay. We booked a superior room overlooking the garden. It was therefore extremely disappointing that the hotel did not live up to expectations. The room itself was ok but the bathroom was not worthy of a superior status...

My wife and I have wanted to stay at the Priory for many years having seen it on our frequent visits to the area. We decided to treat ourselves to 4 nights as part of our 40th wedding anniversary celebration. We booked room 4 , the Purbeck Suite, on a dinner, bed and breakfast package. It was fabulous! The room...

Well what a wonderful time we spent at the Priory, it was my Husbands 70th Birthday and I booked a surprise visit to this Hotel, he had often driven by and thought how lovely it is so I treated him to a night there. We were met in the Carpark by a very lovely Lady Porter who checked us in...

Gorgeous coffee with either homemade biscuits or pastries. We sat in the drawing room and you just can't help but feel the history of the place oozing from the walls. The setting is idilic, right by the river. We finished our visit with a walk around the well kept gardens. I highly recommend a visit.

We stayed in the Purbeck Suite (room 4). When we first entered the room we were so impressed and then we were shown the bathroom! WOW. A freestanding copper bath and a walk in all bells and whistles shower. The hotel is beautifully designed and we loved the way the Priory theme was spun through the paintings and ornaments. The...
