The Priory Hotel, Louth

We are a small, quirky independent hotel with a big heart. We believe in warm welcomes, special but unpretentious food and a relaxed yet attentive service.



People are at the heart of what we do – you, our valued guests and our staff, some of who may not have had the best start at life or have learning difficulties and have been overlooked or not had the opportunities to work elsewhere. All you need to do is read some of our reviews to see what a wonderful unique atmosphere this creates and why we’re so proud that our guests choose to visit us time and time again.


The Priory Hotel, a former nautical and mathematical academy, is a regency Gothic building and combined with our beautiful grounds, offers a great place to stay, relax and explore Louth and the Lincolnshire Wolds and Coast.


We are honoured to be “Taste of Lincolnshire” Gold Citation Winners for Hotel of the Year, Restaurant of the Year & Wedding Venue of the Year for 2017. To all our guests, a massive thank you for nominating us and to our amazingly unique & extremely hardworking team, a huge well done!!


Trip Advisor Reviews:


“Taste never to be forgotten – Wow this can only be described as the most enjoyable experience my tastebuds have ever had and the service was unique to say the least with lots of laughter and kindness.”


“Brilliant food, a must for any food lover, did the taster menu and lost count of how many dishes we had! Each one clearly made with love. It is a totally relaxed atmosphere and all the staff are amazing.”




A team member’s quote:

“There are no words to describe what we do because we are what we do – The Priory isn’t work, it’s my happy place.”




Indoor and Outdoor events are a specialism of The Priory Hotel. Our Weddings are especially popular, due to the beautiful gardens, and the professionalism of our team. (Please refer to our web site for details).




We hold several events throughout the year, including a fun night to benefit an amazing cause, East Coast Homeless Outreach (ECHO) on Friday 24th November, 2017. Enjoy a bowl of curry and some great fun with proceeds going to ECHO.


We also hosted a “Day of the Dead” Halloween Celebration on October 28th, 2017.




Stripped Back Sundays


As part of The Priory’s support for local music, we are planning to launch “Stripped Back Sundays”, which provides local musicians the opportunity to socialise and jam, and of course, receive publicity. This fabulous initiative will commence in January.


Musician Opportunities:


We are always interested in talking to local solo and/or acoustic Musicians to play in our Espin Lounge. Contact Paul for details.


Gig in the Garden


Gig In The Garden is a Non stop live music and arts event, hosted annually in the grounds of The Priory Hotel. Good Food, Bars and GREAT Live music! Watch out for details of the 2018 event.
