We stayed at the Cricket Field House for three nights while we traveled around the region, going to the Isle of Wight, Stonehenge, etc. Although it is not right down town, it was easy to find and although it is off a main road, it was quiet. There was generous car park, which is not always the case, so parking was easy. If you don't have a car, the walk downtown would take about 20-25 minutes, but there were several small grocery stores near by to get drinks, etc. There is a lovely garden behind the main building. Our room was large, the decor a bit 80's, but very clean and nice. Our major problem was the heat, which was not the fault of the hotel, but did make sleeping rather difficult. We were in the newer annex and there was not even a fan available to stir the air. England was going through a heat wave, but a fan would have really helped! It would finally cool off about 3 am with both windows open, but until then, it was miserable. We looked into buy a fan, but couldn't even find one in the area - that's how hot it was. That being said, the owners were very nice and helpful, the breakfast room was a lovely conservatory, and the food was wonderful with a buffet and also cooked to order using local produce. The owners made suggestions of things to do if we needed it and pointed us to a great laundry which did our laundry for us for the same price as going to a coin operated facility. Salisbury rolls up it sidewalks early, but we found several nice restaurants downtown and the Cathedral is a gem. We have stayed in the area previously and found this hotel quite a bit nicer than others available. The cricket field next door was also interesting - they had matches while we were there and it was interesting to watch the set up and take down. I would stay here again if I am in the area, but if it is hot, bring a fan!
