Its great location with free private parking just in front of cathedral, staff is very polite and cooperating. rooms are very clean with very good ventilation. Loved it. Highly recommended for travelers either for business or leisure, worth spending such price for such an hotel

From my initial phone to confirm my booking until the moment I left, Linda from Sarum College was a brilliant guide,support,and caring soul who made my stay such a magical one.On arrival Linda told me that I had been upgraded(no extra cost) because of a problem in the room that had been allocated to me.The room I ended up with...

A good place for a quiet retreat (literally) from outside distractions, such as TV. A very plain room with no frills, but clean and spacious, if in a double room. Wonderful location opposite the cathedral with plenty of on-site parking. Good breakfast and friendly staff but you do have to ask for anything beyond the bare basics, such as a... More

I stayed at Sarum College recently as it was the venue for a business conference I attended. First the negatives: the service on the desk was average at best, the food was quite disappointing - everything was pretty tasteless, and because this is a working college I fund it quite noisy in a morning with the students running down the...

I've stayed at Sarum twice now and my husband on two other (separate) occasions. We love it. It's a little sanctuary with comfortable,unpretentious rooms, great food and incredibly helpful and willing staff. My hubbie is happy with a basic room but I like the ensuites which are well designed, simple and comfortable. The food is usually very good - better... More

Stayed at Sarum College on an overnight business trip , fantastic value for money & what a view from the room of Salisbury Cathedral. No TV in room but WiFi was good & your time would be better spent visiting the cathedral & other surrounding landmarks in Salisbury Staff where very helpful will definitely stay here again

Yet another successful stay at Sarum College B&B. Always a friendly welcome, a nice clean room and a comfy bed - what more could you want?! Lovely and quiet, tucked away in the Close opposite Salisbury Cathedral, so a good night's sleep is all but guaranteed. Nice and cosy, plenty of hot water and the bathrooms for the cheaper rooms...

Location of course is superb, the facade anyway lives up to it. Parking on-site was very welcome. Staff were very good. But the bathroom.... God had certainly replaced the apron for a sabbatical suitcase. Stained and 'grim' (to use another reviewer's word) - a youth hostel in the Pennines would have put it to shame. The view of an air...

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay. We are sorry you were disappointed with your room. The rooms in the Baker Wing where you stayed are due for refurbishment but in the meantime, we agree the state of the grouting in the shower is unacceptable and we will address this immediately. We do hope you'll stay... More

Unrivalled location, opposite the Cathedral in the peace and quiet of the Cathedral close. Five minute walk to city centre, 10 minutes pleasant walk to railway station. Parking limited I think. Buffet breakfast, plenty of choice, in the college refectory. Don't expect luxury - no frills in the standard single rooms - no TV except in the common room -... More

Sarum College has a fantastic location - you walk out the front door and the spectacular Salisbury Cathedral is right in front of you. The staff are friendly and the service is decent, but the place is old. Most of the rooms are very small and the walls and floors are poorly insulated, which means you can hear everything, from...
