We stayed for two nights on the way to Exeter and back to London. My mother had a very badly bruised leg (octogenarian too). Marked as a Solo trip as we had separate rooms and the hotel doesn't take children - so not Family... Could be romantic - but VERY traditional. The hotel was helpful, understanding, extremely friendly and kind,... More

Booked for lunch over the phone and specifically requested a window table, there was a very good reason for this but I won't bore people, the receptionist said yes, that's fine we have a lovely window table overlooking the lawn down to the river, it's table 8 and I will book that for you. I was a happy bunny! We... More

Another wonderful lobster lunch.Sitting on the terrace looking over the beautifully kept gardens towards the river is idyllic.The service and food were first class.We always treat ourselves to a wonderful lunch here when we are in the area but we always pick a lovely day so that we can sit outside and appreciate the scenery

Second time for us at this hotel. Extremely high standards and very good service. Would certainly recommend it. Only one slight downside - we stayed in the boathouse accommodation and the temperature at night in the room was too hot and stuffy - lack of windows meant it was difficult to remedy this.

Came upon this place quite by chance after trying to find TE Lawrence's effigy in Wareham. After several minutes wait, we were shown to the outside dining area and told we could sit at either of the two tables the receptionist pointed out. Having seated ourselves comfortably, the Maître 'd rushed out and told us we couldn't sit at that... More

We held our wedding reception at the Priory Hotel in early August and stayed in the mallard boat house suite on our wedding night. David and the team were so accomodating and really helped to make our special day more amazing then we could have ever imagined. We had drinks reception on the patio/lawn area after our ceremony at the... More

Stayed for two nights on 5th/6th September for DB&B. The food and service was excellent. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful without that patronising grovelling I hate so much. Chatted to a very amicable member of staff working the bar the first evening, who went and got maps and guides of places we proposed to visit on the Saturday... More

My family and I went here on my 50th Birthday and I was so disappointed.

We stayed in room 21. It was lovely & comfortable. The gardens are lovely & the river setting is beautifully tranquil. We ate in the restaurant & the food was excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. It was a very relaxing break and I look forward to returning.

We stayed here for an Anniversary & booked the Boathouse (Swan Suite). We chose this as it's right on the river bank with its own terrace. The problem we had was 'Wareham Wednesday'! For 6 weeks in the summer there is entertainment on the quay with a fireworks display late evening. I have to say the atmosphere was amazing &... More
