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

We booked this hotel as a group for a 60th birthday weekend. On arrival we were greeted warmly and made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. The log fire created a cosy atmosphere and the bedrooms,though small, continued that ambience. The Priory is an exceptional old building full of character and history. The gardens, which run down to... More

A charming place, steeped in history. Corridors and small public rooms. Log fire in a comfortable lounge, small bar and other lounges. Wonderful atmosphere throughout. Dining room was bijou, clean and pleasant. The meal superb. (Winter special price lunch or a la carte) Not cheap but good value. Excellent, efficient staff. Will certainly visit again.

Family lunch for 6. On arrival downstairs was full so we were given the upstairs room. Almost like entertaining at home. Comfortable, well appointed. Staff were attentive but not pushy. All went seamlessly. Service at lunch was responsive, no long delays. Food was thoughtfully presented, the chef had a good eye to detail. Amounts were moderately generous. Sweets offered were...

I have eaten at the priory with the same group of friends on 3 occasions. We all found that it was, for the most part, a lovely experience. We ate in the evening and arrived at the back gates which were remotely controlled and with a swirling mist added to the experience of arriving somewhere special. We entered the Hotel... More

Have recently had a family lunch at the Priory to celebrate our Diamond wedding. From start to finish everything was smoothly managed, all the staff efficient and friendly, and the food superb. From us oldies to the youngest teenage grandchild, we were all taken good care of and our tastes considered. The young chef did a fantastic job of getting... More

This is a lovely hotel, with excellent standards of service. The food is very good indeed. We stayed for 6 days, and the menu was good for for each evening. We are not fond of creamy puddings, but having said this on the first evening the chef cooked something special for us for every subsequent dinner. Our only comment is... More
