We held our wedding day at Priory Bay Hotel on New Years Eve 2011. We originally booked the hotel in January 2010 after viewing lots of other venues on the Island. As soon as we walked in we loved the warm atmosphere, the polite staff, the location, and the fact they were the first place to offer us a cup of tea!
On our wedding day everything ran so perfectly. Cally, the events organiser, was absolutely super and without her meticulous planning and understanding I am sure it would not have run so smoothly, she is an asset to Priory Bay Hotel and would like to say a big thank you to her. I would also like to thank all the staff that were involved on our wedding day (I would love to name them all). Everyone was so helpful and attentive to all our guests. It was commented on by many of our guests how lovely all the staff were and how good the service was.
The food for the wedding breakfast was absolutely divine. We had eaten here prior to the wedding and also had a wedding tasting day, and both times we thoroughly enjoyed the food. This was surpassed on the actual day. From the canapes to the main wedding breakfast to the meal we had on the Sunday the food was of a very high standard.
The hotel also has its own beautiful private beach which we managed to get down to on our wedding day for some photos, but we also used it every day to walk our dogs. Most of our guests also made it down for a lovely walk along the coast and around the grounds.
Most of our family and friends stayed in the hotel. My family stayed in Tithe Barn (41) which was a lovely space and was much bigger than we had first thought. We stayed in Room 4 which is a lovely large room with views over the Solent. My friends also stayed in some of the self-catering cottages which were really cosy and warm.
Anyone looking to hold there wedding on the Isle of Wight should seriously consider looking at this hotel. From beginning to end it was a perfect day and I am sure we will be back very soon.
