This was a family occasion - an informal dinner, for which the Garden Room was admirably suited. Arriving while it was still light the outside gardens down to the river made a pleasant environment. This is not the main restaurant,which was fully booked. It was above all, comfortable - not stuffy or formal, it was relaxed, yet highly professional. The... More

The most reasonably priced afternoon tea in the village. great scones with cream and jam. Not enough seating on a busy day though.

At a time when Dorset is meant to be pulling out all the stops after the floods to encourage business, it was deeply depressing to visit The Priory Hotel. We were not asking the earth, just a pot of tea. The receptionist and duty manager are both graduates of the Basil Fawlty School of Hotel Management , with an unpleasant... More

Every time we arrive we go to the reception and ask for service and every time we are met by the same weary response "we are attending to others and whilst... More

For this reason, and in the event that we are 'fully-booked', we always recommend that an advance reservation is made (or even... More

Been going here for 20 years until today. Went in for afternoon tea. Milk arrived in a chipped jug, tray plonked down in front of us and no apology when a fresh jug arrived after I commented. They couldn't make me a sandwich at 3pm in the afternoon in July. How many stars does this hotel claim to have??? THEN... More

I was on duty at the time of Victor107's visit and was first aware of some discord when a female staff member came to see me; clearly very upset and crying. She explained that a non-resident customer had been extremely rude to her, raising his voice, because he wanted a sandwich and we do not offer them on the hotel's... More
