I booked this 'hotel' as I needed a base in Salisbury to visit family. The location, right next to the Cathedral is excellent. Free parking meant that I could leave my car safely and explore the city on foot. The rooms are rather like typical 'student halls' accommodation. My room had a single bed, desk and wardrobe and the en-suite... More

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night whilst attending a concert. Our room was basic but spacious, spotless and comfortable. Breakfast was great with extensive buffet choices. Staff were friendly and helpful. Above all however the location is magnificent within the cathedral close and perfect to explore the city all around. We managed to park our car in... More

The Refectory - great place to have a party. The food created by Richard and his team was fabulous. We had such a wonderful time. The bar was great and the staff were very helpful. I would recommend Sarum College for parties and family gatherings. We held a barn dance here and The Refectory was a great room to have... More

NB no TV, but free wi-fi. on-site parking available. opposite the cathedral - beautiful location. lovely to hear the bells.

Booked this last minute and although we normally stay in boutique type bed and breakfasts thought we would try the college. Simple rooms but spotlessly clean and comfortable beds. The location right next to the cathedral and surrounding grounds was excellent.

I took a single room only with a shared bath and toilet just down the hall. Room had tea and coffee facilities and a basin for drinking water (advised it was drinking water by staff) and washing. Room was very clean, bed very comfortable, shared facilities spotless. Be warned, the doors do close heavily so if you have a noisy... More

This is a Christian College that also rents out rooms as a hotel - the price was good, the breakfast was also good. The rooms were simple but that is OK and there is free WiFi. The location within the close is great.

Attended a conference here recently. The College is very close to the Cathedral- walking distance. This is a cheaper venue so one needs to adjust their expectations; however, some aspects of my stay were memorable and exceeded my expectations, such as the food and the staff. Pros: 1. Service is friendly and has charm. For example, i experienced the lady... More

Another pleasant stay at Sarum College. It's rather like a University hall of residence but it's cheap, clean, unbeatable location for the city centre, and great views of the cathedral from some of the rooms. Granted parts of it are shabby, a bit of re-decoration and some new carpets would certainly not go amiss, and you'll have to manage without... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay in historic buildings within the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral Close. Sarum has 40 en-suite rooms, some with stunning views of the Salisbury Cathedral and the rooftops of the Close. Rooms not used by students and conference guests are let for bed and breakfast. There are also a small number of very modest rooms with shared facilities for those on a tight budget. Sarum's central location is a five-minute walk from High Street shops, cafes and the charter market. Excellent cultural venues within the Close include Salisbury Museum and Mompesson House, while Salisbury Playhouse, Salisbury Arts Centre and dozens of restaurants and pubs lie just beyond its medieval walls. Return to the Close with your own gate key, knowing you are among the privileged few to stay in what Bill Bryson described as England's 'most beautiful space'. The train station is about a 15-minute walk away (5 minutes by taxi). Direct trains to London are about an hour and 20 minutes. ... more   less
