After staying in the Holiday Inn Express Cardiff airport on the previous evening, The Priory was in a different league with regards to the welcome and atmosphere. The food at the Priory is 50:50 conventional and sea food, the later is a fantastic experience, the best sea food I have had since on holiday in Maine last summer. Nice clean... More

I stayed with a colleague for a couple of nights. The company had booked dinner,bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, specially if you like seafood. Worthy of a mention is Stephen, the top in the restaurant - he was incredibly helpful with a good sense of humour. It made our night! Would definitely stay... More

My family (wife & two children aged 10 and 15) and I rented two rooms here when flooding thwarted our plans to visit Shropshire via train from London winter of 2013-14. The hotel is nicely located for walking to the Roman baths, the remains of the Roman ampitheatre, and local watering holes. The setting for the hotel is very pleasant,... More

An excellent night had by myself and family for my birthday. Service was second to none and the food was to die for. Would definitely recommend a visit. Came from Derbyshire but will definitely go again.

This hotel has been one of my favorite places to stay and eat for many years due mainly to the Staff , character and charm of the restaurant , bar and surroundings.

Took three clients here for lunch on a Monday. The restaurant is full of charm and my American visitors loved it. The counter showing off the fresh food looks fabulous, but we all settled for the 2-course lunch at £10.95 which had a good selection of choices. The food when it came was very good, tasty, nicely presented and good... More
