Room was very nice indeed but our toilet, and and those of rooms nearby, had mascerators attached which meant that every time one was used it sounded like someone was drilling holes in the wall, not very nice in the middle of the night. Do make sure that you keep your parking tickets up to date, we went just over... More

The hotel was clean and welcoming and the staff were lovely. We were looking forward to a relaxing weekend, sadly because a wedding reception was booked on the Saturday we did not get it. Our room overlooked the courtyard and the noise from the reception was loud but the guests leaving at 12.30 am were even louder hence no sleep... More

I booked this hotel for a friend and I for a weekend away, the location was great, the price was brilliant and the staff were lovely. I would definately recommend this hotel, the courtyard is beautiful and the hotel has a lot of history.

Horrible stay, leaking shower, noises neighbours!! Telephone didn't work? Was advised that because I was leaving very early I could order a breakfast tray, no order card? I used my mobile to call reception, the receptionist I spoke to didn't have a clue what I was talking about, no parking either!! There are any other hotels that I would choose... More

We stayed here a couple of weeks back as we were working in Salisbury for two days. It was a pricey rate for a quick night but we fancied staying at somewhere so historic. We were delighted with the architecture as a whole plus our room had features that dated back 4 or 5 centuries. Sadly, the experience was let... More

Hotel was very clean and relaxing. Good food. The staff very helpful and friendly. The hotel is situated the centre of the city ideal for shops and the cathedral. Recommend to stay when visiting Salisbury.

We stayed here one night whilst attending a reunion in Salisbury. We had a comfortable bed in a clean modern room. The modern ensuite bathroom was spotless. Our English breakfast from the buffet was delicious. Service throughout this establishment was excellent. Close to the city centre. Ideally positioned for visiting the cathedral. Would certainly stay here again.

We were lucky enough to get a room here, we tried on the off chance, only 1 room left, the Executive Suite! This room dated back to 1220 and was amazing! History preserved! Pull chain toilet, huge room and bathroom. Very comfy bed. Loved this place!

Stayed here for one night whilst in the area. It is a very old building but we could find no fault. The pretty courtyard was lovely for a light lunch in the sunshine and the staff were all polite friendly and professional. Our room was spotless and comfortable with a good sized bedroom. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice... More
