This is a small family run hotel with 8 rooms. I arrived late and phoned ahead to let the reception know. They arranged for out of hours access and as I would miss room service / the bar opening hours, they kindly ensured a nice glass of red wine was ready and waiting in my room. My room was lovely,...

Comfortable stay and the hotel owners are caring. The food cooked in the Hathway restaurant was of good quality. Chef was able to accommodate specific request and provide dinner in time. Parking is easy.

We booked the Priory Hotel in hope that it lived up to it's website and would rather stay in a country hotel than the Premier Inn but sadly we wished we stayed in the Premier Inn. I was very reluctant to pay the £115, totally over priced for what it is! The hotel is so dated and needs some serious... More

We are very sorry that you didn't find your stay to be what you expected. We are unsure why you feel our hotel is dated, perhaps it was that you had a four-poster room rather than a divan bed but this is in keeping with the style of the building. Our bar is open with our restaurant and as all... More

A dated hotel which could be so much more. The owners ( I guess) fo everything from the reception to the cooking. This hotel has so much potential to be the best in Hereford but struggles to beat the travel lodge.

I've had the pleasure of staying here several times on business. The rooms are airy and spacious, the beds very comfy, the hosts wonderfully attentive and the restaurant simply superb. The country location more or less guarantees a quiet night's sleep too.

The priory hotel Is slice of Hereford hospitality and a home away from home. A great country oasis 10 mins from Hereford centre. A family run hotel, with great breakfast, wifi, pristine bedrooms, Egyptian cotton sheets and friendly hoteliers. A relaxing treat for anyone on business or tourist alike.
