On a cold winters evening The Salisbury has a warm cosy atmosphere, and very welcoming. This place offers a fabulous menu at reasonable prices. The staff give a very friendly service, nothing is too much trouble. Would highly recommend for any occasion, certainly made our birthday celebrations complete.
I arrived about 20.00 after jumping a bus from Princes Street which pretty much stops 2 mins from the door of the hotel. Reception staff are very lovely and pointed me in the direction of my room up the sweeping staircase. I had a single room, single bed and bathroom. Clean and tidy with tea and coffee facilities and bathroom accessories. Bed was foam mattress and good quality pillows. Just what I needed for a 1 night stay. Had I have been picky I could have been annoyed that the blind was too small for the window so people across from me could watch me undress, the sash window was broken so had to jam the window open with a shoe, the floorboards squeaked so much when I walked I felt embarrassed incase someone was below me and the sink tap came off in my hand. None of the above effected my sleep, except at 8am the clatter of glasses/bottles from the hallway below woke me up. The breakfast was continental and £16 so I didn't entertain that, for that price I would expect a very good cooked meal. Lastly attached to the hotel, with access from inside is a lovely Lebanese restaurant where I had a very decent evening meal which was only a few pounds more than the advertised breakfast in the hotel..All in all I was not dissapointed as the niggles didn't ruin my stay by far. Good off street parking and plenty shops and restaurants in a few mins walk. So if I needed another over night stay I would definitely go back.. but with earplugs for the morning.…
Room was fairly clean, reception staff were friendly. Curtain was hanging off the wall, bathroom was very small and has a frosted sliding door which may not be ideal for couples. Location isn’t ideal if it was raining like it was when we stayed, on the outskirts about 25 min walk from the centre. Didn’t have breakfast so couldn’t comment on this.
We came up for 1 night mid September. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the bathrooms quite nice, hence 2 stars. Otherwise this hotel would not command 1 star. The rest was awful. The room we stayed in had a lumpy uncomfortable bed and stained carpets. BUT the worst part of our stay was breakfast. Acontinental breakfast! Fruit consisted of a few pieces of very sad looking pinapple, no orange juice and the coffee looked a smelled like dish water. As for pastries, I saw the waitress taking them out of a packet. All this for well over £100. We decided to go out for breakfast finding a fabulous cafe 10 minutes away. Would never stay here again.
We have just returned from a three day stay at the Salisbury hotel. The last two days we were the only people staying in the hotel, but that didn’t alter the service we received, we even had room service for breakfast rather than going down to the restaurant which was perfect. It is situated on a quiet road, so no noise on an evening coupled with a nice comfortable bed made for a really good nights sleep 😴 It is an easy walk into the city centre or easy to catch one of the many busses. Thanks very much for making our stay very comfortable and special.
