        Individual guest reviews

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          I liked the old building and the way the way the reception area was under glass so as not to take away from the setting of the building. The grounds at the back were beautiful and the courtyard bedroom buildings were nice.with attractive landscaping.

          The bar food was probably the worst I tasted in a long time - greasy chips, dry salad. The breakfast was uninspiring and the melon looked days old. I stay in hotels on the continent where everything is fresh. I'm glad I didn;t try the cooked breakfast.

          1 of the Receptionists out of three we encountered was very helpfull, the other just turned there back on you

          This is a conference venue, intended for delegates only, it is not a bona fide hotel, you will be very second class as a resident here.

        • Single
          5.8

          Plenty of parking and very quiet.

          Single room small. Cooked breakfast not well cooked - eggs underdone and bacon very overdone. No safe in room.

          9.2

          The environment and the staff. I was very pleased to get a morning call from a real person, and a newspaper under the door.

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The ambiance, history and very close to town center but in a country setting

          The toilet paper was the smallest I have ever seen

        • Older travelers
          3.2

          The breakfast

          The bed. The walk to hotel for breakfast. Decor of Dining areas. Lack of interest in non wedding party guests. no towel changes despitre requests. Walls not sound proofed

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          location,excellent building.comfortable room

          breakfast .scrambled eggs rejected.could do with less sugary cereals,otherwise ok

        • Older travelers
          4.6

          Locality, central to town and for our purposes

          Double Rooms are very small (quite claustrophobic), beds very uncomfortable (need new mattresses). No bar or restaurant open in the evening. Given the size of the rooms, I asked to be upgraded but there was no rooms avaiable as they hadnt been cleaned following a wedding party who had stayed in the 'deluxe' rooms all weekend.Receptionist wasnt at all knowledgeable of the Town/Area or indeed of the Hotel ! I feel there are other perhaps more suitable/comfortable hotels in the area which I will use in future !

          I stayed here as I was born and brought up in the town and remember many times visiting and stewarding Fetes held in the grounds of the Priory. The very good breakfast was served in one of the former Drawing rooms with a magnificent view over the park. They served some of the best coffee I have tasted for a long time.

          I think that the hotel serves mainly as a conference centre and for that purpose I think that the room which I had did not have large enough desk space. As a passing through hotel I thought it expensive and not really catering for that tyoe of business..

          beautiful historical location, friendly staff.

          the bathroom could use some upgrading, but is clean and everything works fine.

          Great location and convenience for music festival.Hotel set in lovely parklands and would make a good base for exploing the area.

          As an early departure was needed on the Sunday(7.00am) it was a bit dissappointing to discover that breakfast didn't start untill 8.00 am.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Its location, for the purposes of attending the Rhythms of The World Festival, was perfect

          The rooms were rather tired and the breakfast was decidedly average. There was not a great selection. Generally the hotel was not great value for money at £ 150 per night bed and breakfast

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Fantastic old meets new combination, the staff were very helpful and couldnt do enough for us. A good knowledge of the buildings history and took time out to show us some of the special features of the hotel. Breakfast was very nice and such a beautiful breakfast room. All in all a pleasant stay in a beautiful building. will certainly visit again if down that way.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The Hotel is very close to the town so very easy just to walk to the Shops and Restaurants. The breakasts are of a high standard.

          I wanted a late check out on the Sunday as per my booking instructions and this was not really accomodated. No Room Service was available.
