I have stayed in the Salisbury 4-5 times over the past few years and I have never been disappointed. I stayed on a Friday night at a £45 rate including breakfast. The rooms are fairly basic (everything you need) and clean, the breakfast is good. The Hotel is right in the middle of Hertford and you can use the free... More

Not my first visit to this wonderful old hotel. My wife and I usually visit Hertford two or three times a year to visit family and friends. Our bedroom was nicely appointed including a jacuzzi bath and free wi-fi and a TV we never used. The three bars are a joy to use. The food is good and there is... More

I booked this online based purely on it's charm and if I'm being honest, it's price. A lot of the ugly generic chain hotels in the area were asking for £60-70 for one night, however this beautiful and fantastic hotel only charged £44.50 with a full breakfast. The room was fantastic and very well appointed with everything you need in... More

i have stayed at the Salisbury on a few occasion and it has a nice welcoming atmosphere. The lady's on reception is helpful and charming, been there years (Carol?). The bars are nice with a good selection of ales and lagers, food is ok and reasonable price. Breakfast is very good in fairness. If you have a lot of luggage... More

This hotel looks quite small in the photos, but it runs backwards most of the length of the side street it runs along, so actually it is much larger than you would think. It is a traditional hotel, a nice & generally unspoilt building with modern touches here and there. I only booked a single room (got room 10), but... More

Modern decor in the bedroom which was very clean. Great shower. All within an old building in the heart of Hertford. Having its own car park was a bonus too. Breakfast is included in the stay. Good selection and was lovely. Thank you. Happily recommend!

We stayed on the Seasonal deal, Food in the restaurant Saturday Evening was excellent as was the breakfast on both mornings. The rooms were comfy and well equipped, although the bed could have been firmer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The big bonus that it has its own Car Park making our stay stress free. Would definitely stay there... More

I have stayed here many times through work requirements. The welcome is always friendly and warm. One of the key things for me about this hotel is that it has its own car park, many hotels in Hertford don't and you either have to park in the street (fines are issued after 8am) or in the multi-story car park nearby....

I haven't been here for a number of years and the place has obviously gone downhill since then, but it is still an excellent place to have a quick, or even leisurely pint. The food seems good, but we did not have first hand experience. What interested me were the fittings and architecture - a star from a bygone age.
