Two of us stayed for 3 nights after reading a favourable review in the press. Interesting building, nice location, but massively disappointing dining experience. A very limited menu choice and not executed with any competence. We made comments at the time and have since e-mailed the hotel twice with no response from them - we wouldn't go back nor recommend...

I booked a two night stay at the hotel and the taster menu on the Saturday night. On arrival, the staff were so lovely and helpful. We received a tour of the hotel, which is beautiful. The private beach connected to the hotel is only a short walk away and it's idyllic with great beach combing and rock pooling opportunities.... More

An attractive building, spacious public rooms, reasonable but pricey food and a great location are all Priory Bay positives. Sadly, no one available to check me in (I waited 12 minutes), very lukewarm hot water, a very late breakfast because the chef hadn't turned up and an overall atmosphere of decline prevailed during my visit. I won't be staying at... More

I had never visited the Isle of Wight before; for my wife it was a trip down memory lane. As a result we wanted somewhere to stay that was just that bit special. The website for the Priory Bay Hotel makes the hotel appear to be a really rather nice place to stay, so I booked for two nights. The... More

Dear Guest We are very sorry to read your personal review on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately the structure of the 17th century listed building cannot be changed and therefore to meet fire regulations there are just a couple of rooms which have fire exits (only to be used in case of emergency). The majority of reviews on the website are excellent... More

A weekend party for 80 people was delivered in flawless fashion. Efficient planning, a constant stream of ideas during the build up and over the weekend the standard of both food and service were faultless. Highly recommended for a quiet weekend away, a week with the family in one of the private cottages or, like us, the perfect venue for... More

We took over the whole of Priory Bay for the weekend, yurts, cottages, barns, coach house and Cluniac - to celebrate my birthday. We subsidised the cost of most of the rooms ourselves, as some were overpriced for what you get. The Hotel has a very happy atmosphere and friendly staff and is perfect for events due to the variety... More

First thing staff were obliging and friendly but lacked managerial direction and so the service was slow and inaccurate. I notice others have said the same. Our bill too had to be re-calculated and an amended bill paid the next day, never ideal. The food was without fault, 1st rate. If you are considering a stay in the Yurt -'... More

I only visited as part of a lunch party (so I couldn't rate the rooms accurately), but the view from outside - where we ate - was stunning. A beautiful golf course overlooking the sea. The service was excellent and the food divine. All the staff were friendly and professional.

We'd been recommended the hotel by my sister who said it was a great place to stay. So, a booking was made for 1 night all inclusive dinner, bed and breakfast with three of us staying in a family room. The quoted rate being £320.00, but we managed to get it for £280.00. My wife works and the website stated... More
