had a terrific weekend on our 10th wedding anniversary. special occasion deserved a special treat, and bath priory didn't disappoint. only quibble I can find is breakfast can be slow. if you are in a hurry, id mention it, so they speed up a bit! but this is really splitting hairs

Head Chef Sam Moody may have left but this restaurant remains one of the best in Bath. A replacement hasn't yet been appointed but the team is currently led by an interim from London. All is well. Although the menu is still by Sam Moody the cooking is excellent. And of course the general ambience and location with its fabulous... More

Exorbitantly expensive. This was a special birthday family celebration. No acknowledgement of this by the hotel. Tasting menu ordered - half of courses not worthy of inclusion on such a menu - very bland! Service in the Bar for pre-dinner drinks very poor - took a long time to get drinks and when they did arrive the order was incorrect.... More

I attended a fashion event and had lunch there. What a wonderful place, the gardens, the lobby, and all these beautiful paintings. Wonderful, simply wonderful. The ideal set up for a film set. I would definitely go back, for lunch, for a stay or simply to have afternoon tea. Definitely a place worth to be visited.

The Priory Hotel occupies a large Victorian house in a smart street some way out of the city centre. The arrangements for booking a table in the restaurant seemed somewhat dictatorial (eg you book a table for 7pm and are then told you must arrive at 6.30 and be out by 9). When I went there (arriving 20 minutes after... More
