The Priory Bay Hotel

This elegant Virginia creeper-clad country retreat has been built upon by medieval monks, Tudor farmers and Georgian gentry. The Priory Bay sits atop a small valley overlooking a stunning 70 acre estate, with spectacular views over its own private beach, six hole golf course and the East Solent.  Its medley of beautiful buildings have been restored to create the unique “Country House Hotel by the Sea”, which has become synonymous with fine dining, service and luxury. 

Superior rooms are in the main building, whereas the converted Tithe barns and self-catering cottages are more suitable for families.  Facilities include tennis courts, swimming pool and, reputedly, the best-six hole golf course in the South of England.  For an extra treat guests can choose from a range of holistic therapy treatments in the comfort of their own room. 

The two restaurants (Regency-muralled and brasserie-style with alfresco terrace) offer seasonal cuisine specialising in local and foraged produce, plus an innovative wine list which focuses on organic and biodynamic wines.

The hotel is available for weddings and also has a wedding pavilion on the beach where couples can get married.

The estate is a haven for wildlife, including birds of prey, owls, red squirrels and orchids. Children can wander freely in the grounds, while parents enjoy a little luxury, good food, wine and romance in this hotel, whose informality makes it feel like home.

Dogs in cottages only.

Hotel reviews

14/07/2013 (2 night stay): Booked very late and got a good room only deal. (We had made other arrangements for food). Great welcome, very polite and caring staff, superb room with amazing view over Priory bay. My only issue is that I was only there for 2 days and not more.
