On reflection it’s hard to say if this hotel represents good value for money, but that isn’t really the reason to visit. We had dined here several times before in the ground floor restaurant, but not stayed. Our visit this time was a half-board “package”, and we booked well in advance to avoid the school holidays and/or peak tourist season....

We stayed here for three nights in a beautiful room and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Exquisite linens and large soft fluffy towels in the (admittedly small) bathroom help the feeling of being pampered. Hotel staff unfailingly helpful and attentive without ever being intrusive. The hotel restaurant is excellent with high standards of cooking...

Booked a two night stay including dinner for a break in my wife's chemo therapy treatment. Everything about the hotel was lovely and the food perfect. Even breakfast was all freshly cooked to order - not a buffet in site. Service very attentive, which made us feel special. The surrounding countryside super and the autumn sun was very welcome. Our...

We just stopped here for tea in the beautiful gardens. What a well-kept, well-managed place, right on the river. Full of charm and attention to detail. The staff could not have been more helpful. Everything was perfect, we will definitely come again but to eat next time. Congratulations.

We didn't stay but we had our wedding reception here in July this year. Tracy and all her staff were absolutely fantastic from start to finish, very accommodating, helpful, friendly. The food was excellent as always (compliments to the chef and his staff). Everything flowed seemlessly and we felt very confident leaving all the arrangements in their capable hands. The...

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...

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...

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...

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.
