Traditional, stylish and packed with character


The moment you step inside The Priory, we want you to relax, unwind and enjoy yourself. Situated in the market town of Wareham, this is a country hotel with its own special charm. Set in exquisite, well cared for gardens that are worth a day out in their own right, The Priory retains its heritage as a grand private house and once monastery with unique, one off antiques and luxury interiors, making it one of most special boutique hotels in Dorset.

Coming to stay at The Priory, you will find that we have complemented the traditional country and historical charm of the building itself with modern creature comforts such as our new Garden Room restaurant to make your stay comfortable and relaxing.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!


Steeped in history, The Priory remains true to its heritage as a monastery and the history of the property alone is reason enough to visit. Situated in a conservation area, the Grade 2 star listed building dates back to as early as 809. We think this is pretty special and makes us one of the oldest hotels in Dorset. Naturally, you can expect plenty of quirks and uniqueness from your stay at The Priory.

The Priory Hotel stands in over four acres of carefully and lovingly cultivated English cottage gardens, on the banks of the River Frome. Explore the gardens whatever the season or simply enjoy your coffee, afternoon tea or lunch alfresco while taking in your surroundings. Doesn’t it just sound perfect for relaxing holidays in Dorset with your nearest and dearest?
