My fiancée and I stayed in one of the priory bay's yurt rooms on Friday 17th April. Whilst we were perfectly happy about being down almost on the beach, with lovely views over to the mainland, we were less pleased by the abundant gaps in the tenting, lack of any heating other than a minuscule electric heater and Heath-Robinson state...

We are regular visitors to the island but as this was a last minute trip we had to accept the hotel we normally stay at was full and find somewhere else and we plumped for this one after a good deal of searching but now we are in a dilemma - return to where we are happy or stay here... More

We are regular visitors to the Isle of Wight, so are familiar with it's sleepy pace and quirks. We usually stay in the Seaview Hotel, but fancied a change. Lovely room - a barn conversion with three bedrooms and views to the sea. We arrived early & it was ready, so that was a treat. Asked to book a table... More

We recently stayed at the hotel and found it to be beautiful, however we under the surface it is looking a bit shabby and in need of TLC. There is no arguing, this a lovely looking building and grounds. The staff are friendly and the food is excellent. There is a sense and calm within the hotel which is really... More

I visited this hotel for two nights, with my daughter and two grandchildren (4 and 20 months) the staff were so very helpful with arrangements prior to our holiday and once we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble. The family suite was fabulous with little gifts for the children and views over the garden where we could watch red squirrels... More

We popped in in February 2015, as indeed we've popped in before for a drink in the drawing room. This time we had taken advantage of the Price is Wight voucher for coffee and cake. We'd expected Mr Kipling style cake but no, home-made beautiful cakes, lovely coffees, and the beautiful drawing room to ourselves. The chance to sit and... More

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

Today we used our price is right voucher for Sunday lunch - we paid less than menu price but only by about £5, but did inc a kids meal. The staff were attentive on arrival and friendly. We were shown to our table and offered a selection of water. We were then given menus, at no point were we asked... 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.
