On an amateur cycle ride from portsmouth to Bembridge we discovered The Priory by accident almost hidden along a coastal track. We were desperate for coffee and were led cheerfully into a bright and homely drawing room with sea views across the elegant lawn. We sat in tranquility watching the red squirrels and drinking our excellent coffee. What a gem... More

We took our two children aged 2 and 4 for a short break and received excellent service from the team at the hotel. While we were lucky with the weather, the beach and grounds made for an ideal break. The food was lovely, the hotel atmosphere relaxed and the barn we stayed in great for families.

From the moment we entered the doors of the hotel, we were welcomed warmly by staff who directed us to our room. We had a family suite, which had hairdryer issues, (it had cold air, not hot!) but was overall a lovely and cosy room to stay in. In the evening, we went for a meal which was extremely pleasurable,... More

Our party of 6 was taking advantage of a special Sunday lunch voucher offer via The Price is Wight for which we had pre-paid in advance. When booking we were only asked the voucher code and so thought nothing amiss when we turned up with the one voucher. On arrival we were immediately'put straight' by the duty manager who would...

Arrived for pre-booked Sunday lunch ( with elderly disabled parents-in-law ) which duty manager refused to honour due to mix up with issue of vouchers from "The Price is Wight". Totally inflexible. Had to find an alternative venue for lunch. Will never visit this venue again Advise everyone to check & check again before visiting There are plenty of other... More

What a lovely place! Extremely helpful staff, huge gorgeous bedroom with lovely big bathroom. Fantastic views from bedroom, dining room, lounge...fireplaces, comfy sofas and can imagine sitting there for hours with a glass of bubbly. I booked it very rushed and it was a pleasant surprise. In fact, before got home, booked a family room for 2 days later to... More
