Testimonials

The whole experience was excellent – we have used Ware Priory on a number of occasions and will continue to do so as the facilities, service and staff are all excellent.
Lesley Morris, Which?

 

Our overall experience was great. Room was lovely, spacious and bright. Equipment was excellent, perfect for our needs. All staff were friendly and helpful. Food and layout was excellent. Some of the best ever experienced for a conference/meeting. Price was competitive. All I can say is that I would highly recommend The Priory and if we ever have a need again, we would definitely go back.
Pauline McEvoy, Shimoda
Many thanks. We were all very impressed. Everything went smoothly, from easy accessible parking, the welcome reception and all the culinary delights, beginning with the warm Danishes with Coffee/Tea/Juice and fruit on arrival! It certainly got the day off to a good start and the refreshments delivered unobtrusively throughout the day maintained that high standard. The sit down lunch in the room overlooking the river was a talking point. We look forward to being spoilt by your services in the future.
Sian Gentry, East Herts District Council
