A unique and interesting hotel tucked away in beautiful gardens next to the river. The building is very old and attractive . Friendly and helpful staff, wonderful food and a very comfortable room overlooking the garden. Highly recommended.

The suite we stayed in at this Pride of Britain hotel was immaculate; the room and staff ensured we had all we desired for a first class stay. I highly recommend The Priory Hotel in Wareham for all seasons. From... More

We went for what we thought was a 50th birthday party. Unknown to all the guests it was a secret wedding for our very good friends. The staff went out of there way to keep everything secret until we were ushered into the church. When we came back into the Priory the staff were excellent making sure everyone's glasses were...

If you want to go somewhere really special or romantic, then The Priory is the place. The location is enviable with views over the river and the Purbeck hills beyond. The ambiance is unique with the staff adopting the perfect balance of care and attention. An excellent chef serving imaginative and delicious food.

A group of us had dinner here and the service and attitude of the arrogant staff was appalling. There were dirty plates lying around from lunch at 8pm in the evening and we had to hunt down staff for glasses for our welcome drink! We were celebrating a double birthday so this was most disappointing and at £80 a head,... More

A hotel of character on the river bank convenient to center and local river walks. Attractive bedrooms and comfortable common areas. Dining room of equal character; pity about the incongruous and incompatibly styled 'for sale' wall pictures. Dinner was generally excellent; perfectly cooked partridge and grouse with well balanced accompaniments, good board of local cheeses all pleasantly and knowledgeably served.... More

On a cold but beautiful November day we were greeted warmly for lunch at this gem of a hotel tucked away on the riverside at Wareham, yet minutes away from the town centre. Pre-lunch drinks and coffee after were taken in the cosy lounge by the roaring log fire. The set lunch choice was excellent, great value and difficult to... More
