We had trouble finding it and then working out how to get into the car park! Room was lovely with superb views over garden and river. We loved sitting in the drawing room by the fire with our pre-dinner drinks. Cellar restaurant was quite cold on the first night. My meat eating partner loved the food but my vegetarian food...

Recently had dinner here to celebrate a family member's birthday. You simply cannot fault the location, the premises and its decor. Simply stunning. Classically English and something that will be seared into your memory. The food is pretty acceptable and the wine list reasonable. That aside I have to say I and some of my party found the food to...

I was really looking forward to this meal but felt really let down by the end of the evening. I had booked for a table downstairs and had to check several times via email to ensure that this was the case as I kept getting a response that they had tables upstairs and this was not where my party wished...

Had lunch there on the 13th Dec, with my mum. It was fantastic the fire in the lounge and the decorations were lovely. A perfect spot for lunch, the food was great and the service was perfect. A great place for a Christmas lunch or an evening meal.

The Priory Hotel building was an actual Priory in the 16th Century and the history is apparent in the many paintings depicting monks. We decided to book an overnight stay there with dinner to celebrate my birthday having admired the building and lovely gardens when on a riverside walk in Wareham. Parking is behind the hotel and not easy to...

We visited based on a recommendation from our B&B. We called the day of and booked for a cream tea. The service was subdued but fit the setting. The sitting room was lovely with a fire going in the fire place. The tea and scones were very good and it was a nice relaxing atmosphere. Definitely worth a trip for...

We had been looking forward to dinner at the Priory. Travelled 55 minutes from our weekend hotel with such expectation....this was quickly dashed. The parking is a challenge, the welcome non existent. We waited 20 minutes to receive menus, then waited another 20 minutes to be asked our food choices. The manager, who looked stressed,very tired and under pressure from...

This is the second time we have visited the Priory for lunch. We were not disappointed. Very good service and excellent lobster! There is a great view over the river and a lovely ambience to the restaurant. We would recommend it to anyone.

I chose The Priory after reading the reviews here and was not disappointed, it really is an excellent hotel. The buildings are quirky, initially I thought a bit of a rabbit warren, but you soon get used to it and I was shown round by very helpful staff. It was so nice to be in a building with character rather...
