Absolutely excellent without fail (have visited numerous times). Excellent food, impeccable service and beautiful location - and very good value for money given the quality. Nowhere quite compares. Rooms are also lovely.

We arrived here early for a lunch booked by friends A rather surly lady at reception told us to sit in the garden and she would attend to us. We did, she walked into the garden past our table and then went inside without speaking to us. A waiter asked if we were being attended to and we said no... More

We treated our son and his new wife to a short break, as we had enjoyed our stay so much. They appreciated the excellent suite and service, and were so enthusiastic that other members of the family now want to stay at the Priory. We all agree that this hotel is exceptional.

Friends of ours from England recommended The Priory to us and we're VERY glad they did! It's quite a unique and special place. We spent two nights there and enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant one of the nights. Our room, The Durndle Door, was a perfect combination of the old and new -- very romantic. The bed was...

Having spent 3 nights at this delightful hotel, I have few negatives to report. The hotel stands on the north bank of the River Frome and has 4 acres of well kept, landscaped gardens. The hotel interior is tastefully decorated with many antiques. The building dates back many hundreds of years and has superb features, including large fireplaces and decorated... More

The restaurant was comfortably busy. We had not dined in the Garden Room before and found it most pleasing. The view from the dining area is stunning. The birthday boy ordered the fillet steak and raved about the quality and the exceptional sauce. I chose the primavera risotto with a very colorful mixed side salad which was almost a meal... More

My husband and I dined at The Priory on the evening of Sunday 19th June. We were staying at a friends house nearby so were only visiting to eat. I can not comment on the hotel itself. We had a superb meal. The welcome was friendly and professional. We chose our meal while reviewing the menu in the cosy lounge... More

We visited the hotel for a wonderful evening meal. The setting, the ambiance and the overall service were first rate. The evening started off with a gin and tonic and canapes on the patio overlooking the gardens and river where we chose our meal at leisure and were called to our table when service was ready to begin. The choice... More
