This is the 2nd time I've stayed at the Old Priory and no doubt will not be the last due to the high standard of accommodation, service and friendliness I experienced during my stay. This time I stayed in the 'Turret' room on the ground floor, it was beautifully furnished with a double bed, comfortable mattress,2 armchairs, a pouffe, dressing table with large mirror, built in wardrobe, dressing area with seat, next to the bathroom (bath & shower over) with complimentary shower gel, soap and shampoo. There is a side table with kettle,complimentary selection of teas, coffee, drinking chocolate, biscuits, milk/sugar. The room was clean and warm, bedding and towels soft and luxurious. Breakfast consisted of a selection of fresh fruits/cereals/jams/full cooked breakfast/fresh filtered coffee, juice etc The location is central with good amenties, historical sites and some nice quaint shops in walking distance. Robin the host is friendly, a good cook and has a good knowledge of the local area and places of interest, happy to help out if asked. Imo this is a first class b&b if you have high standards and expectations, you won't be disappointed.
