Location: Excellent location in the heart of Salisbury within 1 minute's walk of the Market Place and 3-5 minutes from the cathedral. Layout: Downstairs is basically a large pub plus dining room and breakfast room. Guesta are given keys to unlick the hotel area whether going up by lift or stairs. This is to protect the hotel area on Thursday-Saturday... More

Really nice room, good location then only problem was that the air conditioning just blew warm air around and the windows were limited to how much they would open. In the morning, the shower broke so we didn't shower and then arrived for breakfast within the times, but they cleared the toast machine, cereal, fruit etc whilst we were waiting... More
