Dear AnnieStAlbans, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us at the Priory Hotel. The hotel is for a new build restaurant and a refurbishment of the Garden rooms, due to start early next month. The new Garden Restaurant will be the new function room for the Priory Hotel with unobstructed views of the garden. Training to improve standards is going with the assistance of all feedback given to the hotel. I do hope that you will visit us again, when you are next in the area, to see these improvements and the new building as it comes together for us. Kind regards, Kim David General Manager

Dear Susie 101, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at the Priory Hotel, I do sincerely apologise that the hotel room was not up to standards for you, and that breakfast service was slow. In March we are having a new build and new fresh rooms. I hope that if you do change your mind and decide to stay with us again you won't have the same experience and you will leave the hotel feeling satisfied. If there is anything I can help you with or any questions I can answer please don't hesitate to call me on 01284766181 Kind Regards
