The Priest House Hotel enjoys a great location on the banks of the River Trent where a mill has stood for over a thousand years. The historic core of the hotel makes the perfect setting for a romantic break or wedding, but whatever the occasion, spoil yourself by booking one of the two luxury suites in the main tower. You’ll enjoy the four-poster luxury and the gorgeous river views.
The seventeenth-century cottage rooms where millworkers used to live are also charming and cosy – and very good value.
With its two AA Rosette Dining Room at the centre of the old building, The Priest House enjoys an outstanding reputation for its food. Make sure to ask for the locally produced cheeses that are accompanied by celery, grapes, chutney and Lincolnshire plum bread. There is also a cheaper dining option at the Brasserie (which has one of the lowest medieval ceiling beams in the Midlands).
In good weather you can also dine outside on the banks of the River Trent.
The Priest House is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"Download Festival: The three day heavy rock festival takes place at the spiritual home of rock, Donington Park, and features over 100 acts including Iron Maiden and Queens of the Stone Age. There’s an indoor ‘pop up’ RIP Metal Hotel onsite, complete with ensuite wet room, flat screen TV and quality linen – but if you fancy retreating somewhere peaceful and refined, book yourself a room at The Priest House Hotel."
"There was a mill complex operating from Norman times here where the River Trent became too turbulent for navigation. In 1536 Thomas Cromwell interrogated its owners – an Augustinian Priory – for Henry VIII and reported that there was much sodomy and “incontinence” (sexual licence) and so the mill was passed to the crown. At one point the “King’s Mills” were owned by the family of Lady Jane Grey, and the Norman stone building now known as the Priest House was called Grey’s Lodge for many years. In 1664 a royalist garrison stationed here surrendered after an attack by Parliamentarian forces. The mill complex burned down in 1927 leaving just the Priest House and some millers’ cottages which are also part of the hotel."
