Great weekend in Salisbury This is a great location for the cathedral and town and ideal if you want some real old English history. Lots of well appointed rooms with an amazing staircase that has moved over the years to make it fun every time you use it. We had a great meal on the Friday night. (The steaks were... More

Excellent central location right outside the cathedral close and easy access via St Anne's gate for this quirky historic old building. Decent wine bar on ground floor, up windy wonky steps to the bedrooms, huge brass key rings, fabulous sheets, tiny loo and v small shower room, no idea how the managed to get it all in. Very clean, breakfast... More

Came to Salisbury with my partner saw on trip adviser that all the reviews were great. They weren't wrong!! We turned up at 8pm and they didn't have any tables spare for dinner, however they graciously accommodated us and made us up a table straight away in the bar area. The food was fantastic, filet steak and rump steak were... More

The location is amazing. Right across the street from St. Anne's Gate. The hotel seems comprised of three or four ancient buildings, so the hallways are very narrow and the staircase is uneven. Not a place for people with mobility issues. No ac, but they made fans available. Our suite consisted of one very small living area and one bedroom.... More

This hotel is adjacent to the city centre and, once there, the whole city can be accessed by foot. The rooms are well set up in this old, somewhat crooked but comfortable building. The service is excellent and the members of staff are very friendly. There quality of food in the restaurant is very good at a reasonable price.

The Chapter House was a lovely place to stay for our summer holiday. Right across from the historic cathedral and peaceful park and a short walk from the vibrant market, the location is prime!! Our room was extremely comfortable with historic value and the hallways of the hotel were so charming. The service in both the restaurant and overnight stay... More
