“Great weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We arranged for a special birthday party to be held at the hotel and were joined by family and friends. Hats off to the Salisbury staff as the room was laid out beautifully and the meal excellent. Those of our guests staying at the hotel all commented how pleased they were with their rooms. Breakfast is always splendid. We have stayed many times and will continue to do so.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I stayed here on business recently for the first time in well over a year, having been a regular for the last seven or eight years. In spite of the long gap since my last visit I was welcomed like a long lost friend and, as a bonus, got a room upgrade to a really nice double at the front of the hotel. The room also had a spa bath, which unfortunately I didn't have time to use. (And before anyone starts to think I'm one of the great unwashed, I did have a shower!).

I was looking forward to a kipper for breakfast and wasn't disappointed. It was one of the best I've had. It's really encouraging when an old-school English hotel like the Salisbury Arms upholds values of quality and service, unlike some other places I've stayed. And the attention to detail is also excellent, with a complementary newspaper, amongst other things.
Well done to Sharon and her team.

We two bus-pass-holders needed an overnight stop in the area and were very pleased with what we got. A very well appointed room (4* standard) excellent food with seriously large helpings both at breakfast and supper taken in one of the buffet-bars. Also car park in gated lock-up and staff all of whom really seemed pleased to help. We liked it enough to book for our return journey and were not disappointed (even a discount for Sunday!) No hesitation in recommending it PS get a road map the town's one way streets are a bit confusing

This is our “local” hotel & we have eaten in their restaurant many times & particularly enjoy taking visitors from the US who marvel at this 500 year old establishment which epitomises their idea of England.
There has recently been some refurbishment which has improved the dining room making it look much larger and lighter.
The food never fails to come up to standard & the big bonus is the helpful friendly staff.
There are set price menus at lunchtime which are of great value & the wine list is very reasonable.
Although they have their own private car park it is rather small & of course the hotel guests have priority so it is best to park in the nearby multi-storey car park only 5 minutes walk away & this is free from 6.30pm.

If you are looking for a decent meal at a decent price in olde worlde surroundings, then look no further than the salisbury arms in old hertford town. Bar or restaurant - both good deals - and 'specials' every day. Table service which is good. An excellent place to unwind after shopping or prior to a theatre visit at hertford theatre. The ham, eggs and chips are to die for!

Stayed Sunday night where they had a special offer, ready to work in Hertford the next day. A classy establishment with everything just as I like it. Comfortable bed, very good breakfast, lovely furnishings, perfect. I think it is more expensive during the week but I can rarely find a hotel such good value... I will be back if I am working in the area again.
