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

Whilst staying with friends in Wareham, we booked for dinner on the recommendation of another friend. We were not disappointed! This place is very special. The building is rich in history and is beautifully kept; stunning grounds and flowers everywhere. The staff were very friendly and approachable; we were made to feel welcome from the moment we entered. Pre-dinner drinks... More

In the 36 years that we have been visiting, absolutely nothing has changed at this hotel, including many of the staff. There has to be a reason, and I think it's all to do with the pace of life, relaxation and enjoyment. This is not a business hotel. You come here to walk around the beautiful gardens, to sit outside... More

My business partner and I stayed at The Priory and ate at the restaurant located in it basement with the resultant bill paid at the time of checkout. Having perused the unappealing wine list prior to eating we purchased a bottle from a nearby merchant. Nowhere, either in the hotel or in the restaurant, was there an indication that only... More
