We went to the Priory for a birthday lunch. We had pre-lunch drinks in the pleasant lounge. Located on the site of an ancient priory this character proporty has been sympathetically converted into an interesting hotel. We have not stayed at the hotel so cannot comment on rooms etc. However the areas we visited were well presented and the staff... More

The Priory Hotel is set in picturesque gardens offers old word charm, sophistication and elegance that few hotels can match. It is therefore a pity that lack of attention to detail means I can only rate this hotel as very good and not excellent. Breakfast served on the outside terrace was spoilt by the staff not removing the overnight dew... More

Wonderful to find a hotel that excludes children under 14, No wonder this hotel is so popular and really special, the excellent reviews bear out the fact certain people want peace and quiet, Our room was delightful with matching fabrics & furniture, there was absolutely nothing to fault. The staff were excellent and food superb, we shall most certainly return... More

We met for lunch here for the second time recently. The food was wonderful: scallops followed by grouse. The service was excellent and attentive too. There is a comfortable lounge for drinks and coffee as well as a terrace looking out onto a well-maintained garden and river beyond. Excellent occasion and we expect to return.

Dorset Delight After a couple of hours driving it was not too difficult to find this hotel. However the one way system into the car park meant cars can't enter and leave at the same time!! From leaving the car park we entered the hotel via the lounge - the gardens and hotel over the river and are a true... More

With my wife we stayed last weekend for a wonderful experience. So let's get the bad news out of the way. The bathroom was too small and you need to climb like a mountain goat to reach room 9 up and down the steps and stairs. But that's what you get with a Priory! The good news - it's a... More

A birthday dinner with family on a still, moonlit September night in the shadow of Wareham's Saxon church, you are already in the mood to be delighted and we were not disappointed. The building combines medieval charm with modern standards of comfort and luxury. Food was superb. Three different starters, three different mains and three different desserts all faultless. Canapes... More

Not wanting to jet off anywhere this year, I was at a loss as to where to go for a holiday. When my wife suggested a return visit to The Priory I did not hesitate to make a booking. Yet again everything was perfect, from the warm welcome, the standard of accommodation and through to the excellent food. Prior to... More

It is not often that you can fail to find a fault however small but our three night stay at The Priory was just that, 'Faultless' The history goes back to the 7th/8th century and mostly well documented. There are just 18 rooms, all delightfully furnished with tasteful antique and period furniture. The attention to detail and service is excellent... More
