Such a wonderful old place, I really liked it not least because my father lived here as a child and the property features in my next book. Very ye olde English, loaded with charm, I can't think of anything I didn't like.

I have just spent three nights here whilst researching my family history; many of my ancestors came from Midsomer Norton and were miners.

So let’s get the facts correct here as we fundamentally disagree with almost everything in this review. This couple booked a premium room with a four poster bed for their wedding night around six months ago by telephone. The quoted room rate, which was inclusive of breakfast, was agreed at this time without question. The wife called by telephone two... More

While retaining the wonderful ancient architectural detail, the friendly and hospitable proprietors have refurbished to the highest modern standards. It was a pleasure to spend time at The Old Priory. My well priced room had a four poster and great character while the WC to the standard of a modern spa hotel.

We stayed at the Old Priory for one night. We usually stay in Bristol but due to the Rugby World Cup in Cardiff all the hotels were full. We were very pleased we booked here. It's a pleasant, quiet hotel in the centre of Midsomer Norton. Very handy to visit Bath. Room was a bit small but it was nice.... More

We held our wedding reception at the Old Priory and we were delighted. It feels cosy and homely but at the same time is capable of hosting larger groups especially with use of the beautiful walled garden. We had full use of the restaurant level professional kitchen and managed to self cater our entire event, which was perfect for us.... More
