Description: Think Salisbury and you���ll think Solstice ��� not the mid-summer...
Think Salisbury and you���ll think Solstice ��� not the mid-summer phenomenon beloved of druids but the super chic Bar and Grill at Amesbury���s uber-modern Holiday Inn hotel. Situated only moments from the world famous site of Stonehenge, Solstice is glamorously modern, its sleek interior anything but pre-historic. One wall is shot through with a blaze of glass, providing countryside views in the day and inky black reflections at night, while the rest of the room is bright and spacious, furnished in monochrome and lit by low-hanging chrome lamps. Despite its futuristic styling the atmosphere of the restaurant is cosy and welcoming, thanks in no small part to the professional and friendly staff who ensure your every need is met during your visit, be it a swift lunch or a leisurely dinner. From the elegance and ease of a continental style croissant and cappuccino in the morning to the hearty modern European mains of evening dinners and the comforting familiarity of burgers and steaks, plus the well-stocked bar with its excellent wine list and numerous beers, Solstice is a venue for any occasion.

Great find.

To be honest I was a little bit sceptical about eating in a holiday inn, hence why we have never been before. We had a room booked as we are moving house do ate here for ease How wrong were we. We initially had a moan between us as we had to wait for a table (in a what seemed... read more

Friendly and professional service, great choice of mains, lovely puddings and children ate for free. Buffet breakfast was plentiful and well run. Our 2 night stay at the hotel was very comfortable and I'd recommend it to anyone.

This is ultimately little more than a service station hotel. Foodcosts the earth and isn't good enough for the price.

Good menu, good selection of items. The construct your own grill works quite well. The food was very good but service was a bit slow and hit and miss.

We took this stay on points as all the other hotels in the area were really expensive and I have stayed regularly with work so kind of knew what to expect. As you would expect the check in process was clinical and polite and the rooms are pretty standard with every thing you require. On this occasion we opted to... More

Staff excellent. Food excellent. Cleanliness excellent. Only small let down is that when they built it they didn't include a large conference hall.

I visited for a business lunch. The restaurant is in the ground floor of a Holiday Inn hotel and the ambience reflects that. The food was good, and not bad value, and the service was efficient.

I had veggie pie which I would not order again. It did not have many veggies. My husband had a burger which was OK and apple crisp which was OK. This would not be my choice of restaurant . It is located in Holiday Inn. The dining room was full. Front desk suggested reservations.

I think it is to be expected of a restaurant which is in a 4 star hotel but having said it was still a very good experience. I stayed over for a night and ate my breakfast there, it was a buffet style breakfast, the choice was vast and of good quality. The staff were polite and were on top... More
