After having stayed in hundreds of hotels across the world the Salisbury is in now firmly in my top 10. Could you do better in terms of Georgian glamour? Sure, but this hotel goes the extra mile in terms of unbelievable customer service. This well located hotel (1o minute bus trip or a good 25 minute walk) is intimate, rooms... More

Bought a Four Poster room with Amex points, while had friends in other Superior rooms. Aesthetics on arrival (external + reception area) are a little dull. My room was right next to reception (there's no lobby in practice). Suitably large, with mock fireplace and indeed a comfortable four poster bed. Cleanliness so-so (e.g. drink stains on desk and bedside tables),... More

Very impressed with our stay here. Staff were very helpful and hotel is in a good location. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the Royal Mile which is still close but means you can park easily and it is quiet at night. Bed in our room was amazingly comfy, and we had the best nights sleep!!

Short stay to watch the rugby. Booked this hotel as quite near Princes Street, 10 - 15 minute walk, and had parking. The man on reception was welcoming and after the formalities showed us to the room, which was a Superior double. Initial impressions were favourable as it overlooked the garden. The small table at the foot of the bed,... More

Stayed at the Salisbury on Mothers day 2014. The staff could not be more helpful and the room which we had booked was spacious and well appointed. There is a genuine feeling of grandeur about this lovely old building. The one thing that did spoil the experience for us was that there was no hot breakfast in the morning.

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel, and would happily stay again. The staff are helpful and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. One niggle - we had to ask for a new loo roll!
