    We went for a post Easter two day break. Taking our 16mth old a family room was perfect (room 9). Great for kids, lots of grounds, small playroom, beach and pool in the summer. Also, the chilfdrens menu has the basics, although expensive at £11. The staff are great especially Nigel in the restaurant. The hotel is very grand and set in a perfect location. I would really like to give them 5* but I can't. Unfortunately the whole break was letdown by the evening meals. We pre ordered room service for specific times and both evenings the meal was over 30 minutes late and the second night stone cold so we sent it back. Also, had the high tea which had stale bread and a microwaved hot cross bun as one of the cakes. So, in summary you'll have a great break if you just have the breakfasts and go elsewhere for all other meals or go self catering.

    Room Tip: Room 9 is a great family room

    This place is a real treat. The Priory Bay does not feel the need to conform like so many hotels do these days in transforming their hotel into somthing it's not. The hotel oozes with character and unpretentious style. The grounds are simpley beautiful with it's own private, sandy beach and six hole golf course. The course is nothing special but if nothing else is an enjoyable walk and a bit of fun! The food is very pleasant and the staff all seemed very friendly and personable. Inside the building the place had a special feel. The drawing room is one of which that invites you to sit back relax and enjoy a good book with a pot of tea and a sandwich! The Island room (dining room) has an intresting mural covering the walls of the nearby coastline. This is slightly hideous yet comforting and I actually quite liked it in a weird sort of way. Another sign that the Priory Bay has unashamed character. The bedroom was a breath of fresh air (we stayed in room 11 i think, top of the house with balcony). So often hotels replicate room after room, lacking any indervidual touch. This room didn't really feel like a hotel room, it felt more like a carefully created master bedroom in someones house (minus the dirty underwear on the floor). We felt at home during our 1 night stay and would definately return again soon. Overall, simple but bang on the mark.

    Not one to normally write reviews, but we we're so impressed with hotel and the friendly staff that the only thing to do was share this with the world.

    We stayed at the Priory Bay hotel for our friends wedding on New Years Eve 2011. The last time we visited the IoW was 20 years ago and we would return, if only to spend a quiet and romantic weekend at the Priory Bay.

    The new General Manager, Ralph is a credit to the hotel including his fantastic team, who made very effort to ensure that the wedding party were well looked after during the stay.
    We only wish we had taken advantage of the walk to the beach.

    Well done Ralph and the rest of the team - keep up the good work. You can certainly count on our returning custom.

    Room Tip: Stay inside the hotel or the barn.

    A spur of the moment decision lead to my wife and I heading over to the Isle of Wight from our Portsmouth home for a much needed break. We have walked along Priory Bay before and thought it one of the greatest beaches in the UK and spotted the hotel through the trees. The building is magnificent and it's decor superb. From the friendly welcome from the receptionist, the lively banter with the Polish waitress over dinner and the team who managed breakfast, the stay could not have been more perfect. The quality of food was memorable, log fires were roaring in the grate and our room, up in the roof with a small balcony and views of the sea was stunning. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for in spades. Will definately go back.

    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.
