Having not used The Priory for a number of years, probably due to the distance from Cowbridge I am pleased to say it has not lost any of its charm. The welcome received was warming and the food excellent. We were looked after by a waiter called Lillo ? who's attitude to service was superb...

I stayed at the Priory Hotel for one night only, to pick up my son from university. The hotel is extremely atmospheric, with beautiful gardens and very well maintained. The bar area and restaurant are again, very nicely decorated in keeping with the hotels age and persona.The room I had was very good, with no complaints. In fact I ordered... More

Went here for dinner recently to celebrate a birthday and had a very bad experience. We arrived at 7pm and told they needed our table back by 9.30pm, so we made sure we ordered very quickly. Halfway through eating our starters our main course arrived. We said we were not ready, the food was still left. Our plates were taken... More

Four of us stayed here last Friday night to celebrate my birthday. We booked two delux rooms overlooking the gardens. The rooms were lovely and clean. We had a few drinks in the village and returned to dine at 8pm. The display counter with the raw meats and fish is superb - loved picking my own crevettes and lamb. Two... More

I started to use the Priory following increasing frustration and disatisfaction with major chain hotels in the Newport area. Best thing I ever did. There are a range of room styles available, and if you are staying regularly, it is possible to keep the same room - more like a second home is how it became for me. The food... More

This is our second stay in this hotel. The first time we stayed in the annexe , this time in the cottage in the grounds. The cottage is a bit cut off and lacks character, although was very clean and had a massive bathroom with separate bath and shower, so facilities were fine. We had no noise problem either which...

Myself and my family visited here for Sunday Lunch in March, to celebrate my birthday and I must say that the food, service and ambience was so food we returned last Sunday, May. Juan and his team were extremely attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The choice of starters and main courses were extensive and of exceptional quality, I... More

Called in on the off chance of a table..not been here since 2005 and was pleased to find the service and food were as good as I remember. Excellent choice from special menu and superb whitebait. Worth a visit to Caerleon for roman history followed by a fine meal, perfect Sunday
