We stayed her for two nights last weekend. Externally it’s a quaint, pargetted old coaching inn, beset with lovely hanging baskets: internally it is also very olde worlde, with beams and crooked walls and stuff like that. Our first impression, though, was disappointing. On arrival, the receptionist let us stand there whilst she finished her conversation with another member of... More

Have had Sunday lunch there over the summer and have found both the food and service to be first class. Only minor gripe the desserts could be larger but overall one of the best restaurants in Hertford.

Good location in centre of Hertford. Nice hotel but decor is very dreary and gloomy. We appreciate it's history but the front bar in particular is very dark and uninviting. Staff were ok but lacked any real customer service. We stayed here for bank holiday weekend when the town hosts its musical mystery tour. We returned to the hotel at... More

I stayed here recently for a wedding being held nearby. Staff were super friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well decorated. The breakfast was very tasty. It's got off street parking for guests which is handy. I didn't have a drink or eat dinner but the bar looked friendly and the hotel is attractive with beams and oak.... More

Our sat nav brought us to within a few yards of the hotel but the wrong side of a No Entry sign. After a scenic tour of the town centre we finally approached from the right direction and found the Salisbury's good sized car park (which is at the end of a side street a short walk from the hotel).....

I stayed in this lovely hotel with my family for a night as we were attending a party near the area. The staff at the reception were very nice and kind and even helped us with directions. The rooms were cosy, comfortable and clean, i couldnt complain about anything in the room at all! I was also very impressed with... More

We arrived for a birthday lunch using the Salisbury's excellent offer of a bottle of wine. We were served promptly and efficiently with a smile. The food was tasty and the helpings plentiful. The surroundings are pleasantly olde-worlde. We were not rushed, and it was lucky we weren't driving after the wine! Finally, the toilets are spotless. Many thanks.

The staff at the Salisbury Arms Hotel are first classes, from the people in the bar to the staff at breakfast. The rooms are a little small with no aircon (have desk mounted fan) and no fridge which is an issue when you hit a hot spell as we did. Overall the the rooms although tight are comfortable. If you...

We stayed here on the Sunday of Sonisphere Festival, arriving just before 11 in the morning. Staff were wonderful - they couldn't do enough to help us out! We wanted to drop bags, put make up on (me) and generally freshen up before we jumped in a taxi to Knebworth, but the rooms were still inhabited when we arrived. A... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights whilst attending Knebworth this weekend and were made very welcome by the owner Sharon and her staff. The hotel's history makes this a welcome break after the typical hotel chains that are dotted all over the country. The price of the stay for bed and breakfast was very reasonable and the... More
