Absolutely magical evening last night to top off our few nights' stay at this wonderful hotel. The food (14 courses!) was truly amazing - exceeding all our (already high, thanks to Trip Advisor) expectations - and eating it outside unforgettable. But the hospitality throughout was exemplary. Paul and team, you restore our faith in humankind!! Thanks - we'll definitely be... More

Can I just say that this place is just superb and charming set in beautiful grounds, the owner is so passionate about what he does it rubs off on everyone. Struggle.to see why any negativity has been said as the staff are super. In addition to frequenting the restaurant myself and my wife married here in 2013 and the whole... More

A BIZARRE place to stay. All those fabulous reviews up until April and not one since, ??????? until mine. From the outside the place is an untidy mess of old signage,broken roof tiles,broken plaster-work and rotten window frames.Inside is a miss match of old furniture and fittings. The priory looks like the film set of Sunset Boulvard, set in a... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Deeply sorry that we did not meet your expectations, this is obviously really disappointing for us because despite our quirkiness we all care deeply about this beautiful original building and all who come and stay here. I know that there is a fine line between responding to a review and becoming... More

I stayed at The Priory Hotel as a group of six females to eat at the hotel’s restaurant ‘Serendipity’ for the tasting menu based on a family member’s previous visit to Louth. The hotel is located in the centre of Louth and within close walking distance to the church, shops and other restaurants with plenty of on-site parking. The building... More

Thank you. It was a pleasure having you and just glad you felt at home, in the world of chain hotels we won't be a fit for some but you obviously got that we love what we do. Your review will be a big boost for the team. More

I travel and dine out a lot. Every course was an absolute delight. I will recommend the Priory to everyone. Well done Paul, and all of the team;... More

We were placed here by a neighbouring B&B when our original booking was cancelled after a flood in our room-to-be! Travelling as a family with kids aged 6 and 9 we expected to be shoehorned in to a last minute room but I am happy to report that we were in a comfortably sized room with a double and single...

We visited the priory for my mums birthday and I can not begin to tell you how wonderful the food was. I would even go as far as saying it was the best tasting menu I have ever had (even better than Wintringham fields). Paul and the staff were an absolute delight, pandering to our every need.
