We dropped in on a chilly old Tuesday lunch time ( Market day ) and the place was extremely busy and popular . Our first ever visit here ...its a large spacious place with bags of oldie World character throughout . The food is cheap and lots of good deals on offer ... a busy bar means popular so it... More

Found this one difficult to review in terms of the rating. The rooms are really very smart having recently been refurbished. Problem i had was I stayed in room 117 which to get to with a suitcase was like the krypton factor assault course. I'm a relatively fit person but god forbid anyone elderly gets a back room. It's endless... More

Right in the centre of Salisbury. Great stay for a family room. We had 2 children staying with us in a sofa bed and the family bed was huge. Central location, friendly staff and great clean modern place since their upgrade.

Excellent location, lovely rooms. The twin beds made up as a double made for a huge bed and the bathroom was lovely. We arrived late in the evening and asked the doormen to direct us to the hotel, up in the lift. Our room was facing the main road but was still very quiet. The staff both in the hotel... More

Excellent location in the centre of Salisbury next to the River Avon. Separate entrance to the hotel from the Weatherspoons pub and we had asked for a quiet room situated at the back of the hotel. It was difficult to decide whether it was better to have a quiet room at the back looking out over the bins or a... More

Great location, right in the centre next to a river. Room was a good size, clean with everything in good order. Reception has to be via a lift, but the service was welcoming. Basically it was like a travelodge with a little more character.

Cycling from Bristol to Salisbury through heavy showers, laden with panniers, this hotel was not only welcoming - very friendly staff - but very accommodating in our need to keep our bikes in our room as there's no garage. Our room was spacious and clean, there was a nice deep bath and endless hot water. For the price it was... More

I have stayed at the King's Arms twice with my wife, and both times we were with another couple. By this, I was able to see 2 different rooms. This is a quirky old hotel with crooked staircases, doors and hallways. A fun place to stay and I would recommend it. Don't expect 4 star treatment or rooms but a... More

We were intrigued to see what a Wetherspoons hotel would be like so decided to give the Kings Arms Hotel a try for two nights whilst visiting Salisbury. We're experienced travellers that have stayed in a lot of different hotels across Europe and the Middle East so have realistic expectations. The "look" of the hotel is exactly as it is... More
