Stayed overnight in an ensuite room. Very comfortable and warm. The history of this establishment is well worth the visit and the surrounding grounds are really pretty. Meals were excellent, biggest oysters I've had in years, great value and service.

What a beautiful old building! Stayed here overnight and loved the place. It really is like stepping back in time and being surrounded by all those beautiful trees and nature made it peaceful and relaxed. The highlight of course was Lolly, the hotel/pub dog. She gave us an excellent tour and didn't even need a tip - just lots of... More

My brother and I decided to break up our drive home from Coral Bay. What an unexpected delight! Pleasant staff, great food and clean, pleasant room. A grand old building. I would recommend it to anyone. Would make a great venue for a function or a wedding

I loved our stay at the Priory! The old building is simply amazing and surrounded by landscaped gardens, it felt like stepping back in time! The family room was enormous and the shared bathroom was clean and we had it pretty much to ourselves. We had a great pub dinner and my daughter loved playing with lolly the pub dog

At the beginning of July 14 my sister and I visited The Priory Hotel and asked what choices she would have if we visited the restaurant that week. She was delighted to hear she would be able to pick from 4 items on the menu complete with sauces etc, as she is highly allergic to the onion family. I asked... More

The Priory Lodge is conveniently located close to the Irwin River and a walk into town takes about 10 minutes. Staff are friendly, drinks are cold and food is good. Rooms are basic, but the one we had did have an ensuite, some rooms had to use the common bathrooms.

An old converted nunnery ;) - food & booze a bit pricey - unless you stay on the specials. It pays to ask to see the room before handing over some dosh. Seems the bed, pillows & linen have improved somewhat - given others reviews. BTW: best coffee in town is at The Season Tree cafe (5 senses coffee).

Locals love it. Full of character, simple clean, in the wonderful Dongara and Irwin River region. Half the price of Margaret River, a quarter the crowd. Four hours north of Perth, 70 km from Geraldton. Worth the visit.

This former nunnery is the tops for the colonial-style architecture and period charm. It won't appeal to those who demand the more extreme degree of cosseting in terms of interior décor etc, although on the plus, the staff are very friendly and co-operative, and the breakfast shouldn't be missed for a good start to the day! One day someone will... More
