Very disappointing stay. Restaurant food was very poor. We dined as a large party and obviously this was too taxing for the chef. Very few of us received the dish we ordered to the correct standard. 50% of the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating, the remainder including management really couldn't give a damn about their guests. Such a shame.... More

Expectations were high and the reality was low. On arrival it took 20 minutes to get a menu for lunch after sitting outside and watching the wait staff go back and forth from the same table. Decided to give up on lunch in favour of a drink and another 20 minute wait at the bar followed by a rude response... More

We visited on a sunny Saturday 27th June during the round the island yacht race. Arrived for the champagne and afternoon tea advertised on the website as a treat for my girlfriends birthday, it was a very hot afternoon and we were hungry and thirsty! Reception pointed us in the direction of the terrace for us to find a table... More

This hotel is beautiful and set in stunning grounds overlooking its own private beach. The drawing room and lounge facilities were lovely. During my stay I enjoyed a drink in the lounge area, listening to delicate classical music and reading the paper. We stayed in a large rooftop room with a beachy yet sophisticated feel to it. We visited mid... More

We had an overnight stay at The Priory Bay and it couldn't have been more relaxing - just what we needed! We walked on the private beach, we could have even had a swim or a game of golf - just didn't have time! Watching red squirrels on the lawn whilst eating dinner a bonus! The place is beautiful, staff... More

We stayed here just for one night and were delighted by the hotel. Our room (number 6) was large with a wonderful view over the gardens to the sea. It was very well equipped and everything was perfectly clean.The staff were all friendly and very efficient. The public area were all classic country house and very good. The gardens are... More

We popped in to The Priory to check on a wedding we were attending at the weekend and stayed for a light lunch. Even though it was after 2:30pm we had a devious selection of chicken and mayonnaise sandwich drinks and coffee. The staff were charming and couldn't have done more. Best of all was sitting in the sheltered courtyard... More

My husband and I got married here at the Priory Bay Hotel 1st November 2014. We chose the hotel due to its amazing, secluded and beautiful setting. We had Events Planner Claire to help guide us through the wedding planning, she was lovely, professional, and accommodated all our (reasonable :) requests throughout the whole process. We hired the hotel exclusively... More

In January 2015, in memory of his father and at his father's request, our very dear friend kindly booked four nights stay at the Priory Bay Hotel for himself and nine members of our family. My husband and I had stayed there five years earlier and had found it to be a lovely hotel. Sadly this time that was not... More

We stayed in a Yurt for 3 nights early June 2015. The hotel itself was in a great position, secluded & quiet. The Yurt was even better, if you are able to walk up steep slope on a rough track. The facilities in the Yurt were acceptable but you are paying a premium for the location NOT the accommodation. The... More
