“A slice of old England served with China tea. A peaceful and romantic hotel in lovely Wareham on the edge of the Isle of Purbeck. Classically styled rooms and a beautiful garden. Plenty of great excursions for adults and older kids.”

Hotel Overview

“Hidden behind a church, just off the market square, the 16th century family-run Priory Hotel, smothered in wistaria and with dreamy English gardens sloping down to the river Frome offers a peaceful and romantic haven in time-honoured traditional style. Add richly satisfying food served in a stone-vaulted cellar dining room, then retire to a comfortable bedroom, very likely with beams and sloping ceilings and floors as befits an ancient building. A proper hotel in a lovely setting.”

  • From the Saxon town walls of the ancient market town of Wareham to the rolling Dorset countryside there is plenty to see.

The Priory Hotel

"Many original features have been retained, lending much in the way of character. Interiors, although grand, are cosy and include a real log fire in the ornate drawing room."
