Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Morley
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Stayed for 3 nights as part of a business trip, and had a very pleasant stay even though working. the conference rooms were excellent, and I have never had such a variety or volume of food provided while attending training.
The layout of the hotel is quirky, with a large modern extension, and as a result there can be long walks with bizarre amounts of stairs to access (from my room in the new wing to reception involved gong up and down about 3 flights of stairs- it is impossible to walk inside the hotel on one level). Rooms are large and comfortable, most with views of gardens or golf courses.

Room Tip: If travelling with young children or any mobility issues make this very clear on booking, as there a...

Bought a special deal off Find Me A Gift.com back in January for Breadsall Priory Spa and booked it for my birthday in April - it was well worth it. Set in a beautiful location,the staff at Breadsall Priory are helpful and courteous and the treatment that was part of our deal was heavenly. The cafe-bar serves first class food which is a little expensive but you definitely get your money's worth.
The only down side was the steam room not working in the spa and the regulars (members) complaining about it constantly in the sauna,- apparently it has been broken on and off for months and never successfully mended... :)
On the whole a great day and we will be going back!

This is a very lovely venue. Which boasts vey fine facilities. This was a luxury spa day not an Hotel reservation. I don't feel the spa was quite a luxury event it was a little like being on a conveyor belt two in, two out, hello, goodbye, lie down, get up, hello goodbye ...... Had lots of spa days, this may be the outstanding location, but not top,of my list for quality of treatments. Had neck shoulder back massage, facial and file and polish. Nice pool, small sauna, steam room out of order, one jacuzzi.Small gym, no info given re classes. Food and drink expensive, but in keeping with hotel 4* rating this was to be expected. Very busy hotel setting, good for the business, good to see, but not in keeping with a spa day for me.

Wonderful location and the hotel looks very grand on the approach.
We had a room tucked out of the way in the newer extension. It was a bit of a trek from reception/breakfast but it was clean and tidy but thought (for the price) a bit bland.
The leisure club was great and allowed our 12 year old swim with no restrictions. This is great as a lot of 'good' hotels tend to restrict children to certain swimming times. I think that the hotel needs to promote this as my child loves to swim while we are away and we sometimes struggle to find a decent hotel that allows this. So thumbs up for The Priory
All in all a good stay

Used our tesco vouchers
Easy to book helpful staff
Good room overlooking spacious grounds
Excellent breakfast
Helpful congenial staff
The hotel was tucked away in the Derbyshire countryside really beautiful scenery yet only 10minutes from Derby
Only down side was that food in the restaurant was rather expensive
We found a local pub in the village with food at reasonable prices

Room Tip: Ask for room with pleasant outlook

My now Husband (then fiancé) and I booked Breadsall for our wedding and from the moment we booked we were looked after amazingly. Katie, the events executive, helped us to plan our wedding over the space of 9 months and nothing was too much trouble. Anything I asked for she did her best to accommodate. Nearer the time of the wedding we had our handover with Kyle who would be coordinating our wedding on the day. Both Katie and Kyle were fantastic and put my mind right at ease. They were friendly yet professional and had everything under control. When it came to the weekend of the wedding we stayed two nights in the hotel, used the pool, ate in the sports bar and the restaurant and every member of staff we met were brilliant and the amenities and food were fantastic. Our wedding went without a hitch and it was all down to the amazing staff at Breadsall. Kyle uses humour and charm to make every bride feel special and I'm pretty sure he nearly cried with me as I walked down the aisle! Mel and her team that ran the catering side greeted me so warmly when I was at my most nervous and calmed me down a treat. They went above and beyond what was asked and I can't thank everyone at Breadsall enough for giving my husband and I our dream wedding.

This is the second time we've stayed at Breadsall Priory and despite our feedback it would appear that little has changed, particularly where the restaurant is concerned.

The hotel itself is impressive and the gardens immaculate however my experience of the rooms indicates that a general refurbishment is long overdue. The suite that we've stayed in on both occasions has tired and worn furniture whilst the bathroom requires a deep clean, re-grouting and re-painting, preferably by someone who can actually paint. The beds are standard Marriott fare so no complaints there. I wish that housekeeping would pay attention to how many guests are staying in a room and provide adequate provisions, both times we've had to ring housekeeping to request extra teabags etc.

As Marriott Platinum guests the welcome gift is similar to those received elsewhere however the Marriott Forest of Arden offers a full bottle of wine as opposed to Breadsall's half bottle and their cheese platter was far superior. I fail to understand why the Forest of Arden can offer a full size bottle whilst Breadsall can't.

The restaurant is the real issue in this place. On our last visit we ate in the Tempo bar as well as the Priory restaurant but the food served on that occasion was so horrendous that we didn't risk it this time around and decided to see if the feedback provided on the previous visit had resulted in any changes. Unfortunately it hadn't. The chef is clearly punching above his weight, presumably as a result of watching too much Masterchef and feeling confident that his skills and taste are more advanced than they actually are. The few dishes on offer are uninspiring and include ingredient pairings that are odd at best, tempura lobster claw on a slice of pineapple accompanied by an unidentifiable fruit sauce and stray piece of shell? The dish had also been prepared earlier in the day and, like many of the other starters, had been left in the fridge prior to serving. This resulted in a loss of flavour and texture and any cook worth their salt knows that fridge cold food is lacking in flavour.

Pork crackling that had been deep fried to create an airy equivalent of a quaver was spectacularly lacking in taste. Duck crackling that had been cooked to a dark, dense slab was deeply unappetising. Lamb chops cooked with spices was nice but not enough to redeem the meal.

The restaurant does offer steak and chips, two varieties, rump and flat iron. A flat iron requested rare arrived medium whilst a medium rare rump turned out as requested. Chips are large and tasted very good, probably the best thing the kitchen produced.

Desserts were hit and miss, overcooked pastry, watery and sharp fruit sauces, pointless "textural" additions such as puffed rice. A good chocolate brownie and decent ice cream but not enough to redeem the kitchen. The chef wants to do fine dining but he hasn't the experience or the knowledge to pull it off, they should stick to gastropub style food and perfect the art of a cooking a steak to the customer's request.

In comparison, the relatively close Forest of Arden country club exceeds Breadsall Priory in all respects even if it does lack the character of the main house and Breadsall's management could learn a lot from there.
