        Individual guest reviews

        • Single
          7.4

          The breakfast was excellent - all freshly cooked to order rather than these mediocre breakfast buffets that seem to prevail in hotels these days. Service at breakfast was very good. The location of the hotel was convenient for both city and countryside. The rooms were spacious and quiet - mine was in a separate block outside the main hotel building.

          The room was very stuffy and smelt a bit damp and musty, the decor was a little bland and dated. It felt a bit like a sheltered housing unit! The tv was incoveniently located in a shelving unit and the doors of the unit when opened meant that the tv was partly obscured - no use if you wanted to watch tv in bed! Opening the window to air the room was spoilt by guests in the block opposite smoking outside their room. There were cobwebs in the bathroom.

          Room Service

          Tv - could only get three channels in room - staff said it was due to digital switch over - no point advertising freeview channels however when you could only watch three (bbc).

          The service and the breakfast were both excellent.we arrived very late and the staff member who checked us in was very efficient.

          There were not enough covers on the bed the weather had turned cold and only 1 blanket.i was also sursprised to see blankets on the bed still as most hotels I stay in now supply duvets.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The simplicity of the facilities and helpfulness of the staff. The Hotel does exactly what it says it will do.

          We found the room extremely warm even without any heating on.

          The food was lovely as were the staff - something that is hard to find these days!

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Staff were friendly and room and breakfast were OK.

          Evening meals were not up to standard and some compensation was freely made.Hotel was almost empty over Easter weekend

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Nice grounds, and the staff were very helpful and polite. The english breakfast was disappointing - 0bviously had been pre-cooked, was overdone, and had sat around for a while. Bed extremely hard, though the room was a good size. Nice quiet location.

          Nice and quiet and in nice grounds.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Quiet, relaxing, good food

          poor choice of beers in an area noted for them - but that's just being fussy!

        • Single
          5.0

          Size of room, tripping over things like TV & Chair. Walk from room to main hotel in rain - get soaked!!

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          This was my third visit to the Priory Hotel and again I found it excellent. The service is good and the staff put themselves out to be friendly . If you want something you get it! I found the resteraunt staff attentive and helpful.

          Nice friendly staff, quiet well appointed rooms, some being bungalow style in the gardens and excellent food in the restaurant.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          It would have been nice if the weather had been better so that we could have sat out in the gardens but going this time of year you can't expect it to be.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Pleasant staff and an ideal location.

          The bathroom was looking a bit worn and needs some attention.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Staff and service

          Bathroom floor not clean (couldn't walk in bare feet); room got cold in the night; pathways to garden rooms uneven and dangerous, poorly lit

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Spacious room. Good food especially breakfast.

          Grounds not as spacious as I expected. What a pity the coffee did not match up to the excellent breakfast. It was dreadful (like hot water). Waitress happily replaced the first lot but the second lot was just as bad.
