We chose this hotel based upon its city centre location and good reviews. The hotel was not quite what we expected.
The hotel is located on top of a pub that is bascially a glorified Wetherspoons and turns into one of Sailsbury's most popular nightspots after dark (this is clearly stated on the website) that stays open until 2am. As it's right in the centre of town, the hotel have installed secondary glazing to block out the noise. It works very well and the rooms were quiet at night, but to it's disadvantge, you can't open the windows and the rooms feel stifling the whole time. A fan has been installed to off set this, but it's just too cold.
The bed in the room was terribe. Mattress was extremely uncomfortable, one half lower than the other.
We were woken at 7.30am in the morning by a very load vibrating sound in the celling. This continued all morning.
We complained the next day and the staff were very understanding and promised a discount.
I would not reccommend the hotel to anyone.
For £85 I expect better.
On the plus side, the breakfast was quite good.
