what a superb place Went for casual lunch and food was excellent with nice touches such as cloth tablecloths and extreme politeness. Place is idyllic and I would like to stay at the hotel. Also town looks very nice

What a gem of a find !! My partner and I visited Wareham over easter and just by the off chance we found this glorious hidden jewel behind the church in the centre of Wareham. We just had to have a look and ended up staying for a few hours enjoying an early brunch with tea sitting in the main... More

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.

Ambience perfect. Food perfect. Very generous tea.it was all just lovely. No pretentiousness. No dreaded boutique hotel nonsense. No one hurried us. As... More

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
