The Best Western Priory Hotel


Your Wedding

Imagine yourself in our beautiful landscaped gardens surrounded by your family and friends as you enjoy the finest hospitality together with sumptuous food from our awarding winning restaurant; and all just a mile from the town centre, quietly hidden behind the historic walls of an old priory.

Our dedicated and professional staff offer a flexible approach; helping you to create your own perfect day. They will be on hand to advise and discuss every detail; from the ceremony, menus, wines, flowers, photography; indeed helping you every step of the way, right through to your departure from the hotel as a married couple. 

Whatever you have in mind; from a lunch after the ceremony for just a handful of friends and family or a champagne reception for fifty guests with a three course meal followed by dancing into the night for up to a hundred guests. Our creative team of Chef's will be happy to discuss your menu requirements, incorporating the finest local produce and best quality ingredients. 

The wine cellar, stocked by our experienced vintners, can provide you with your favourite wines and maybe even those special vintages that may have importance to you and your partner.

We can also offer you exclusive use of the hotel. Just think, from the moment you arrive to the moment that you leave, the entire hotel, its facilities, the grounds and every member of staff will be exclusive to you and your guests. 

Your wedding day is a very important occaision, one which we would like to make extra special.

Our wedding co-ordinator and the team at the BEST WESTERN Priory Hotel will attend to every details, so that you can get on with enjoying your special day.
