“Lovely time in Salisbury.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The Rokeby guest house scored highly on all fronts. Warm welcome, clean, spacious room, fabulous choice of breakfast and all staff extremely polite and smiley. And only a short walk from the Wyndam Arms! Result.

Booked night on business in area, saw on line and was pleased to see it was exactly as described and if anything better.
Good welcome from Mark and no fuss and quickly into room, which was clean, warm and welcoming. Liked the free standing bath and nothing to criticise.
Breakfast excellent service and of good quality.
Mark gave some recommendations for evening meal and the one I chose was as he described.
Will definitely use again when in area.

What can I say about the rokeby that hasn,t been said before. As soon as you walk through the front door you know your in a very special place,a very friendly welcoming. Our room was spotlessly clean as usual,a bed that was so comfortable that I wanted to smuggle it out and bring it home with us! Mark cooks the most perfect breakfast that you could ever ask for, and is served to you piping hot and promptly. I don't know how much more that I can praise the rokeby, just please stay there if visiting Salisbury! Karen and Mark have become friends over the years, and we would never contemplate staying any where else. A true little gem of a place,cant wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: As far as we're concerned all the rooms are perfect!

I stayed here for 1 night and had a very friendly welcome on arrival. I was given a welcome leaflet with directions for the short walk into the town centre. The room was spacious and the fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard. Nice comfy bed and the en-suite shower was great. The room was immaculately clean. Breakfast was beautiful and will definitely be staying again when I am next in the area.

We visited Salisbury just before Christmas for the second time this year, as a good half way point to meet some very good friends who also stayed here. We were once again not disappointed. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, we had a great nights sleep on both nights. The house is so quiet, we had no idea that other guests were staying until we saw them at breakfast the next day which is a testament to how relaxing your stay at Rokeby will be! Breakfast was again brilliant and when our friend asked if it was possible to have fried bread with her English breakfast, she was served it in the shape of a Christmas tree, which goes to show the extra little touches they put into making your stay enjoyable! We will definitely return again!

This is my first ever review on TripAdvisor and is prompted by the great experience we had staying at Rokeby.Our room was spotlessly clean with a high quality comfy bed and excellent shower in the en suite. Mark was friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious with a wide choice . We would happily stay there again.

Having read the reviews I wasn't disappointed with this place, situated just off the Salisbury inner by pass, so just 10 minutes walk into town. The owners are very friendly and have thought of most things. Although the deor is a little tired everything was very clean and the breakfast very good. The highlight was the recommendation of an Indian restaurant in town which was fabulous. I'd certainly stay here again.
