What a find! My partner and I stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed longer. The Old Mill is in a beautiful position on the river in the village of Harnham. It is a lovely scenic 15 minute walk to Salisbury Cathedral and the City centre. There is seating at the front of the Mill but also... More

We just stopped for a coffee and a break while doing a circuit round Salisbury. The location on the banks by the weir and the river is fantastic. Both bars looked to be very nice and very atmospheric inside. The beer garden was also very nice with a stream running at the side of it. It is a fine 10... More

As per my title, the setting is stunning - if you like water! We stayed for one night on the upper most floor of this very old building. The rooms were adequate, good size and had a coffee/tea maker. We found the staff to be friendly but not always available; very understaffed. The breakfast was great, eggs benedict! Please, please... More

I ordered the steak and my partner ordered the pasta. At £10 the pasta dish, although tasty, was small and arrived a full five minutes before my steak. The rump steak was about the size of a packet of cards and had been already cut into two??? I ordered medium rare and this was well done. There was excessive fat... More

Gorgeous setting really lovely garden, the new owners have really turned the outside area around. Unfortunately the staff are not very customer focused, just a little acknowledgement that you are waiting goes a long way. 3 members of staff on the bar and even the owner did not look up. The food is average and a fairly limited menu We... More

Stayed here one Saturday night in August. A lovely hotel in a lovely setting, just lacking something. Years ago this hotel desperately needed some money spending on it and it has been spent and the garden especially looks lovely. Were going to eat in the restaurant but weather was so good, we decided to sit in the garden and have... More

Newly refurbished and (I think) new owners. Lovely location, on the river (obviosly). Very near one of Constable's views of Salisbury Cathedral. Nice beer and even nicer locals. Well worth a visit. Park up, have a drink and walk into town. Tue and Sat are Market Days.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Mill Hotel is a 15th century building with features dating back to 1250. From its early ecclesiastical beginnings, it was transformed in the 16th century to a paper mill. The hotel is in the most tranquil location of Harnham Meadows. However, the shopping and tourist district of Salisbury City centre is a mere 10 minute walk. The paved footpath takes you through the meadows which boast the fantastic view of the Cathedral that was voted 'Best View in Britain' in a Country Life poll. It was also made famous in John Constable's classic painting 'Salisbury Cathedral'. (This camera shot alone will make your visit worthwhile.) The hotel is Grade 1 listed in parts and stands in a most peaceful and stunning location above 3 mill runs off of the River Nadder. This really is a countryside escape, just a stone's throw from the ancient city. Our traditional old English bar with low beams, stone floors and open fires, is a step back in time. A little piece of old England that has been preserved for your enjoyment. You can sample the best cask ales, a great selection of wine and food and chat to the locals whilst enjoying the best welcome and hospitality that Wiltshire has to offer. The restaurant is set in the oldest part of the hotel and sits above a mill run which is visible through a viewing panel. The ever present hum of the rushing waters and the large open fireplace, make it one of the best places to enjoy perfectly English food that's been freshly prepared by our chefs for your pleasure. When the weather permits, our restaurant and bar may be outdone by our fantastic garden setting for the best place to enjoy a cool beer, a glass of wine or a great meal. We have 11 en-suite bedrooms set over 3 floors. (No lift available, however, we will of course help you with your bags if needed.) The historic staircase leads you up to the narrow corridors of the newer part of the building, a mere 300 years old. We are sure you will find the views from all our bedrooms are impressive, whether it's the Harnham hills, the River Nadder or over our fabulous gardens set on either side of the mill run, where every seat has a waterside view! The hotel bar, restaurant and bedrooms are undergoing refurbishment during Autumn 2014 and the garden will be completed in March 2015. This is being done with the maximum respect for our present hotel, bar and restaurant visitors and will enhance this already great experience. ... more   less
