“Superb!”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

We attended a lunch with Michael Caines organised by the Theatre Royal and have to say that the whole event was an absolute delight.
The hotel and staff are excellent - very comfortable lounge areas.
The food was quite simply superb and we could not fault any aspect from the presentation to the staff and service.
What an excellent experience.
We certainly intend to return!

Sadly although the Priory looks beautiful and has an elegant setting, it lacks honesty. I would advise you to be very careful with your personal items. One of my items, of reasonable value went missing during my stay.
Otherwise the hotel lacked character usually found in a hotel bar, but there is no bar. My opinion is that you should only stay here if you get a deal, otherwise it's certainly not worth it.

Room Tip: Overlooking the back/gardens is less noisy than the front.

Caroline B, Manager at The Bath Priory, responded to this review, 5 March 2012
We are truly saddened to read this review and for the lady concerned to have such a scathing opinion of us. The alleged theft is exactly that, an allegation. There was never a chance to substantiate that the item was at the hotel or indeed removed from the lady's ownership.
I would very much like to reassure guests of the fact that there are safes in our bedrooms for their peace of mind and that allegations such as this are extremely rare.

Everything about the Bath Priory is well-appointed, from the sitting rooms downstairs, the dining areas and fitness centre to the bedrooms. The service was first class from the moment we arrived to a warm welcome. The restaurant, which seemed to attract a lot of non-residents, was excellent, again with good service, well-executed and original dishes and notably fine bread! Going in January it was a shame not to have the opportunity to enjoy the gardens in their pomp, but we were able to appreciate them from the warmth of indoors. The one minor issue to point out is that Bath Priory is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Bath, but that walk can take you past the Royal Crescent and nearby Circus and in fact a stroll is just what you need after enjoying the fine cuisine of Bath Priory!

Very short review to say this is the best restaurant i have ever eaten in. From start to finish the experience was faultless, food & service were exceptional and it really was an excellent experience.

Pushed the boat out and stayed 2 nights at Bath Priory to celebrate my husband's birthday. The bed was very comfortable, lovely quiet room with a fantastic bathroom ( we stayed in Lavender). Enjoyed the spa and had excellent massages. Great food and lovely surroundings - we particularly enjoyed the sofas near the open fire. The stand out for us though was the staff - they were very friendly, made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well without ever being intrusive.
