Lovely building could have stayed longer

Posted 10-Jan-2017
As it was a business trip I didn't get time to really enjoy the setting as I arrived in the dark and left early. I look forward to staying again hopefully with my family next time.

Christmas Stay

Posted 27-Dec-2016
The Priory is a beautiful Hotel in a beautiful setting. This is the second time I've stayed here. Very comfortable beds and super white starched bedding, which is very important to me. Room and bathroom exceptionally clean too! Overall a delightful stay and most definitely recommend.

Nice stay in the oldest Marriott

Posted 18-Nov-2016 on Hotels
The stay was great. The decor is a little dated, but this is to be expected in such an old property. The room service was good, maybe could have done with a few additional options on the menu. Breakfast was good.

Lovely escape night

Posted 31-Oct-2016 on Hotels
We had a lovely time. The room was great, overlooking the 18th green so we were entertained by some poor golfists! Ate in the prior restaurant and had a lovely meal and some drinks in the bar after. Breakfast was great, buffet with everything you could imagine. The hotel is in a lovely setting and only downside (not for us) was all the steps up and down to get from one end of the building to the other. We liked the quirkiness but could be a problem for others.

Underwhelming for a family break

Posted 30-Oct-2016 on Hotels
Coming from Derby the hotel has a reputation of being that much better than the rest. Sadly I was underwhelmed by my stay there - it could have been so much better but things just let it down. Its showing quite a lot of wear and tear and God forbid if you struggle with stairs - there's dozens of them. I'm sure if you are a golfer then the hotel is first class, but as a someone staying on a family break the hotel amenities were rather thin on the ground. The lounge area is tiny in comparison to its size and because of this we ended up spending more time in our room than we'd of liked. On the plus side the swimming pool is a good size - even when busy. The price of the breakfast was steep - a Premier Inn breakfast is cheaper and better quality. The coffee was AWFUL - weak without any flavour and the waiting staff were unable (or unwilling) to offer a decent alternative. It was so poor I ended up bringing a cup of Nescafe from my room each morning. The WiFi in the rooms is not free but if you do pay for it, it's fast enough to stream a movie. However if you want to connect a laptop to the TV via a HDMI lead beware, like all Marriott TVs its locked down. A quick Google search found the backdoor solution to access the HDMI setting - repeatedly press the 0 button on the remote and the TV will scroll through its connection options. If I was there on business, or a golfing weekend I'd find the hotel just fine, as a place for a family getaway I would recommend looking elsewhere

Very pleasant hotel, with friendly staff

Posted 25-Oct-2016
Pros: The staff were helpful & friendly. The gardens are beautiful. The spa was good, although it was strange having to walk through a bar to get there..
Cons: It was disappointing that the bath hadn't been cleaned. It looked ok, until I filled it with water and hairs & skin cells floated to the surface
Location: Location great.
