“warm, friendly and great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Having just stayed at the Priory this past weekend for a family wedding, I can only reiterate the comments left by others and say how truly charming a gem of a place we found the Priory to be, receiving a warm and friendly welcome from Shelley and Paul and all the staff, where nothing was too much trouble. This, together with the skill, imagination and eye for detail to the delicious food we were presented with made this happy event a very enjoyable and memorable one. We look forward to sampling more great food sometime in near the future.

We stayed at The Priory for two nights last weekend to celebrate that we are getting married there next October and also to experience the food as it it one of the most important parts of our wedding to us. We were not disappointed any worries I might have had we're immediately wiped away. The food was amazing and we have told everyone and anyone about the courses and variety of the foods and the way it was served. The hotel is so relaxing and homely, I certainly didn't want to leave and go back to reality. The staff were amazing particularly Jody, she was lovely. So excited to share the experience with our friends and exchange our vows here and we know we will never forget it.

This was a spur of the moment decision to escape from London and it proved to be the perfect choice. The hotel felt like home as soon as we stepped inside and the staff couldn't have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. The tasting menu evening was amazing (not for the dieters!) and as it was also my birthday, Paul, our host, also made a cake.
The grounds are beautiful - a huge lawn, pond and even a bubbling spring.
I agree the rooms are a little on the small side, but Louth and its surroundings are so lovely you want to be out exploring.
We will certainly try to go back there and would unreservedly recommend the Priory to anyone wanting to visit the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Room Tip: Ask for the four-poster bedroom. It was offered to us but my partner is exceptionally tall so we rel...

Recently stayed at the Priory Hotel for a family wedding. The whole ambience is of slightly shabby chic - great proprietors who can't do too much for you, comfortable (if a bit small) rooms, and the most amazing food! For a good weekend away, being totally spoiled in the culinary department, go here!

My husband and I have just returned from a family friend's wedding at the Priory Hotel. We cannot find the words to describe how wonderful we found the venue, the staff and the whole experience. You have to go there to understand the reviews written by other reviewers are so true. As vegetarians the 11 courses served (yes I did say 11) plus the evening food and drinks were perfectly chosen to meet our vegetarian tastes. The meat eaters were also totally delighted with their food too. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The owners, Shelley and Paul, were fantastic. Go there for the experience that cannot be put into words. I just wish we lived nearer so we could go to the restaurant on a regular basis.

Room Tip: All rooms are so individual. We liked our room because it faced the lovely grounds-but our other fri...

I have just returned from a weekend at the Priory Hotel, which has to be the most amazing weekend I have ever had. The moment you walk in you are met by the most friendly and welcoming people you would ever hope to meet. The staff could not do enough for you , and nothing was too much trouble, you feel you are amongst family. I was very lucky to be able to have the most amazing meal , provided by Paul, who has to be a genius, you only ever meet one in a lifetime. This is somewhere you must experience. Thank you all so very much..

We spent a few days at the Priory Hotel, in the little market town of Louth, when in much need of a break. We found the hotel welcoming and peaceful, set in beautiful and relaxing surroundings and full of character.The perfect place for the rest and relaxation we needed.Our room was delightful with a beautiful view across the garden and a very comfortable four poster bed. From the moment we walked in Shelly & Paul made us feel so welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed the Mystery Tasting evening served by the friendliest of staff and we are still talking about Pauls creative dishes. A delicious experience!

Thank you Shelly & Paul for making us feel so welcome. We look forward to further visits.
