We booked two nights for a typical traditional british pub stay in this wonderful historic building. The actual experience was still ok but could have been much better if the hotel owner/staff would pay more attention to the details. The really good thing was the excellent food and the very friendly restaurant staff. On the other side the hotel seems... More

My friend and I stayed (in separate rooms) here in mid-September for two nights. We were delighted on entering the rooms (after managing to open them - it took a while to master the locks) as they're full of character and charm but I was disappointed to discover that two of the bulbs in the ceiling lights were not working,...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Lazy Cow for one night, and with some bad reviews on here were a little nervous. But the hotel is nowhere near as bad as some say. In fact, with a few improvements it could be very good. The biggest problem we found was the bed - very uncomfortable sleep. The bathroom has... More

Love the theme, the building, location and the food however does need a little attention. The bathroom grouting was heavily stained and the sink leaked, there was a large selection of luxury coffee pods but no coffee machine to put them in and the breakfast was cooked beautifully but the self serve table (tea, coffee, juices etc) was often missing...

Our rooms were both dirty, the bathrooms smelt like dirty cloths with a blob of dodgy 'fluid' on the floor. Dust everywhere, the carpets...get a proper Hoover as we heard it going whilst we were waiting waiting for an hour over check- in time to get into our room. It is in a fantastic location and that is it's only... More

We stayed here overnight on route from Cornwall to Colchester. This hotel has themed rooms and we found ourselves at the very top of the hotel in the Moo Suite, which has cowhide covers around the bed and a huge poster of a gorgeous hairy cow on the wall, even the lamps shades were made from small milk bottles. I... More

Unfortunately I have to say that this place has lost its attraction and is completely run down by management. The rooms are in very bad condition and very dirty. The springs came through the mattress, bath is disgusting. Mold everywhere, bath panel came off and tab of the sink was leaking. Had to dust the bed side tables to put... More

The room was surprisingly big, both the bedroom and the bathroom. Notwithstanding, there was a constant dripping sound throughout the night which kept us awake. This was easily sorted by opening the window (which might not be a good idea if it's cold outside). There was no Nespresso machine in the bedroom, as promised, but the bed, towels, etc were... More

Great location being in the heart of Salisbury. Greeted by a warm welcome and shown to out room. Few weird things with the room, iron provided was broken (prong missing on the plug), no hot water either and only upon telling a member of staff of these issues was I told that the water takes 20 minutes to warm up....
