We had the most excellent afternoon tea, in beautiful surroundings, with attentive and friendly staff. The tea was presented beautifully, and there was more than enough for all of us. I would thoroughly recommend The Priory for a special occasion.

We arrived for a late snack lunch on a Satuday afternoon. The lounge had a beautiful log fire so the lounge was very cosy and comfortable. The views down to the river are beautiful. My partner had the Tian of Crab and was extremly tasty. I had the Roast Beef Sandwich. Tasty thick slices of Beef with Mustard! All very... More

This hotel is underestimated. Should be Five Starred. Service and food were above average. Everything that should worked, the comfort was excellent. The Chef would win hands down against most competitors. Would not worry about recommending this venue. Personal service at every level. If you are in the area stay at the Priory. Privately owned and it shows.

The service at The Priory was impressive. Staff were very flexible catering to our requests for informal dining outside normal hours and asking what more could be done to help rather than waiting to be asked. The drawing room and the bar were both very charming and the buildings undoubtedly had rare character. Unfortunately all this came at a very... More

The Priory is an excellent choice for a serene riverside location with excellent food and service. We recently stayed for my wife's birthday and on arrival found we had been upgraded at no extra cost. The room was big with a king size bed. On one of our two nights we were the only couple staying in the hotel and... More

We were looking for a well earned break and a touch of luxury. We came upon the Priory by doing a web search. It certainly hit the spot. We took advantage of their offer for a winter break with half board. The room we were given was an upgrade and was very comfortable. The 3 course dinner was excellent and... More

We found The Priory ticked all our boxes for a tranquil, romantic, special occasion getaway. Food exquisite, staff were so friendly and attentative, nothing was too much trouble. Though definitely oldy wordly, wooden beams, wine cellar restaurant etc., the room we had was modern and tastefully decorated to a very high standard and the bathroom wow. Though there was a...

Living in Dorset, we try to get to the Priory a few times each year, usually just for dining and occasionally (when we're feeling decadent) to stay! To cheer ourselves up throughout January, we booked for lunch yesterday, and, as ever, couldn't fault it. We were pleased to see there was a set January menu (as well as a la... More

This was our second visit to the Priory and we weren't disappointed. We booked a two night break as a mini honeymoon after our wedding. We were upgraded to a suite which was amazing with a lovely newly refurbished bathroom and a bath made for two. Luxury toiletries, basket of fruit, complimentary newspapers, you get what you pay for here.... More

My 2 night stay here was not paid for by me. I saw the prices and do think it is very overpriced for what you get. I also found the black tie waiter bit totally over the top and somewhat out of place for the type of establishment. I had a steak and it was superb. Some reviewers have commented... More
