Stopped at this accom due to taking a party south to Southampton. My boss booked this on my behalf. He booked a single room for me. When I got there I was very disappointed with this. So requested a room that had the basic requirements. Ie: a sink, shower, and toilet in the room. This cost an extra £26 which... More

Our family of 4 stayed at the Sarum College while in Salisbury. This was a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it. The location is unbelievable, right across from the cathederal. The facilities are good but are not a luxury hotel. It was a clean, comfortable room, with a good breakfast with the rest of the college... More

I was in a good size double room on the top floor at the front of the building so my view out of the window was of Salisbury Cathedral. I could never get tired of that view. The staff are extremely helpful and the food plentiful. All meals are on a self service basis with a choice of cooked breakfast,... More

The College is located within the Salisbury Cathedral Close precinct. This area includes a number of special houses and museums. The grounds are simply gorgeous with a calm serenity in the rain and the sunshine. The College has a stunning view of the Cathedral spire from the front door. The staff were warm and welcoming on arrival and the on-site... More

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

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.

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
