I have been here for afternoon tea in the summer and for an autumn stay and today for lunch. On each occasion the service has been exemplary and the standard of food excellent. The hotel itself may be small and what some people may describe as cramped I would describe as unique and full of character. I especially like to... More

We had our wedding here on 1st August and it went better than we could ever have imagined. We gave Blair our details and wishes and him and his staff made our day perfect. A lot of guests stayed in the hotel for a couple of nights as well as us on the night. They could not have been more... More

We could not see any signs for parking so left the car near the church, in front of a small entrance leading to the hotel. Once inside we were checked in at a cramped area and led through the hotel lounge and out the back towards the river to the Boat House. Our room, the Kingfisher suite, was up a... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch to celebrate the 96th birthday of an aunt at The Priory. The location is delightful and the food delicious. The service was just right - attentive without being fussy and over the top. We have not stayed at the hotel so cannot comment on the residential aspects.

Finally a place that lives up to its five star rating. This place does British hospitality at-its best. Set in beautiful gardens and right next to the river. From the moment we arrived the service was faultless. The Priory has an old world charm which I suspect visitors from over seas would particularly love. Our room was immaculate, not modern... More

The Priory Hotel is in, as the name suggests, a former priory, parts of which date back to the 16th century. Given the ancient building, the interior spaces are charmingly quirky, but beautifully appointed and lovingly maintained. The rear of The Priory opens onto a greensward that gently slopes down to the River Frome, presenting a lovely terrace venue for... More

We had a really wonderful, peaceful and relaxing time. We only stayed one night - wish it had been longer. We were in the Pembroke Suite (room 4) which overlooked the river. The bed was so comfortable and there was a fabulous copper bath and walk through shower! Dinner was delicious and the staff were all charming. If you visit... More

We have lunched at the Priory on a number of occasions and always enjoyed it, but never had an evening meal there. So, for my birthday, my wife arranged a Dinner, Bed & Breakfast stay. We had a lovely room on the second floor with a view of the river and the croquet lawn. It was beautifully presented with a... More

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.
