Comfort, history, good food and fantastic atmosphere at the Salisbury Red Lion Hotel on Milford St. The 13th century coaching inn has an ideal location practically across the street from the market square, five minute walk to Salisbury Catherdral and 10 minute walk to the train station. Throughly enjoyed an 8 night stay at this great English inn.

I recently visited this hotel with a friend for afternoon tea. It is very conveniently placed for the shopping centre and market, and the tea is excellent value and nicely served for a very reasonable price. We had sandwiches, miniature quiches, scones, jam, cream and a selection of cakes and biscuits, plus a miniature pannacotta per person. All this was...

The Red Lion is a great base for Salisbury. Located close to the historic medieval city centre and Cathedral. The rooms are ample, clean and comfortable. The hotel is full of character and has a wonderful courtyard, ideal for lunch or a drink. The staff were most helpful and keen to please. Breakfast is buffet style. The hotel has limited...

I chose the hotel because it was so old. I was grateful though for the lift to our room which I knew beforehand was refurbished in a modern style. Sadly though as in the case of so many hotel rooms it wasn't that comfortable. The lounge was very comfortable with real fires, high back chairs and sofas, unfortunately the service...

We visited for Saturday lunch for my Mother's 90th birthday. A brilliant location, good venue, reasonable food but service was a struggle - but they did try hard. But with only 2 people looking after us the service was slow and the food only warm - I don't like being negative and would revisit to see if they can cater...

Has old world character, but the rooms are poor value, the upper rooms (no lifts) have unsafe stairs and handrails. There was an arrogant attitude from some staff. Limited car parking which you have to pay extra for, or park in a public open carpark.

We enjoyed our stay. I was rather hoping to be transported back to the 13th century which was why I chose this hotel, but sadly, once past the lovely ancient entrance and courtyard, the rest of the hotel, including our room, was relatively modern ( probably understandably due to fire regs etc, but more charm and character would've been nice)...

We decided to eat here because the hotel we were staying at didn't seem to cater for evening meals. We were warmly welcomed by the waiting staff and were led to a table in beautiful surroundings. The building is gorgeous and so was the food we were served. I thought it was extra special without being pompus or overpriced. I...

Absolutely wonderful! The hotel is perfectly situated in the centre - few minutes walk to the cathedral and the tourist office (recommend the City Walk) The town has a great variety of restaurants, bars and lovely shops (and hosts a market twice a week Tues n Sat) The Red Lion afternoon tea was amazing - breakfast first class! staff friendly...

Great central location in town. We we were able to walk to different restaurants and the Cathedral and nothing was too far away. We pre-booked a taxi to take us to Stonehenge for our early morning special access tour, but we noticed that there is a line of taxis just across the street, so we could have taken one of...
