About The Priory

The Priory is a four star hotel in Wareham. As its name suggests it was a former nunnery, then a monastery, and its history can be traced back to the 7th century. Only the grounds remain of these early monastic settlements, although the current building dates from the 16th century and has many features of archaeological interest.

There are 18 rooms and suites, categorised as Standard Double, Superior Double/Twin, Mini Suites and Suites. Most are in the main building, but one Mini Suite and three Suites are in the Boathouse next to the river. All rooms have en-suite facilities, wifi, hairdryer and toiletries, bathrobes, phone, radio, TV, fresh fruit and water. The Boathouse is surrounded by its own gardens and its suites have jacuzzis.

The hotel has two restaurants. The Garden Room is used for lunch, with an outside terrace for fine weather. Dinner is served in the Abbots Cellar Restaurant. Drinks can be taken in the cloisters bar or the Drawing Room.

The surrounding grounds lead down to the River Frome where guests have private moorings if arriving by boat. The town centre is a few minutes’ walk.
