Absolutely Perfect!
The Priest House hosted our wedding this weekend and it was absolutely perfect!!! We cannot recommend them highly enough! Antonia was a pleasure to deal with, all the staff were absolutely brilliant in making everything run smoothly and to plan, and the food was beautiful. They completely exceeded our expectations! For that extra special touch we recommend staying in the tower suite.

Excellent arrangements
I was the best man at the wedding last weekend & I wanted to thank you for the excellence of the arrangements. The event went ahead perfectly, thanks to you and your colleagues. The food, the suites and the general arrangements were outstanding. I know that the new Mr & Mrs were delighted with how it went over the two days. We stayed in room 31 and the bedroom was delightful with everything we needed for our two nights away. Many thanks for your thoughtfulness and we will endeavor to visit again.

The Most Perfect Day of My Life
We were due to get married at a different venue but that got cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. We managed to book the Priest House on the same day as we originally planned back in March. Antonia was absolutely amazing and made sure that she would match everything we were meant to have from the original venue and then some! She was so helpful and nothing was too big of an ask. We had to get everything planned in such a short space of time and she made it stress free and easy. On the actual day, it couldn’t have gone better. We had Dean as our master of ceremony and he made sure that everything ran smoothly and on time. The service and food was amazing. They say everything happens for a reason and I am so glad the original venue cancelled on us as The Priest House was so much better. Would highly recommend and can honestly say it was the best day of our lives.

Attention to Detail - Afternoon Tea Wedding
Hi Antonia, I would just like to send our biggest thanks for such an amazing weekend. Beth & Liam had such a great magical day and it would not have been as good if it wasn't for the attention to detail from all the staff at the Priest House. Everyone was amazing and a massive thanks to Dean.

Everything done with a smile
The whole team made our daughter and son-in-law’s day very special. Thankyou, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue. Highly recommended for a wedding, nothing was too much trouble and everything done with a smile and a ‘no problem’. From resetting the room twice during the day, to making sure every little detail was as the bride and groom had requested. I really cannot recommend the hotel team highly enough. Beautiful venue. Special thanks to Dean, Antonia, Carol and the chef, you really did make the day special.
