“Fabulous central location AND private parking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has loads of character, an unbeatable central location, and - for the most part - polite and attentive staff.

Top tip - unless you are on business expenses, give the hotel bar a miss, as it's ruinously expensive. There are several very nice, good value pub/restauramts within easy walking distance.

I was forced to stop over here because of the adverse weather conditions.

Lovely big room, beautiful open roaring fire in the lounge, friendly attentive bar staff and great receptionists... Nothing too much bother...

And you think this is good ? ... There is more ... The three course meal I had was quite remarkable... Chef was simply brilliant .. Not only in what he produced but also in his presentation .... Simply brilliant ... Same for the huge breakfast .....

Thank you very much ... I will be back...

Dear Zubo01

Thank you for posting your review following your unscheduled stay at the hotel during the recent bad weather.

I was pleased that you were looked after by the the attentive staff including the Reception and Bar teams, and that the open fire was enjoyed against the winter storm outside.

I have passed on your kind words about the food and service to the team including the dinner taken where the chef had taken time with both production and presentation as well as the breakfast to give you the start you need the following morning.

Once again thank you for your kind words and I hope we have the pleasure in welcoming you back for a scehduled visit in the future.

Kind Regards

This is the second time I have stayed here this month. Excellent parking facilities and you can get your car in and out of the car park whenever you want, unlike another hotel very close by. And, parking cost is very reasonable at £5 per night.
Excellent decor, facilities and service. Last week I asked if any chance of a room with a shower as i have a back condition and when I arrived this week, I got exactly that. A fab room, with a shower.
Food here is excellent, incl room service. Comfy beds, great power showers and no traffic noise. Just what I want from a hotel stay while away on business.
Whenever visiting Salisbury , I will come back here. Even considering a weekend break with my husband as This is such a great place. Thank you!

Room Tip: Both of my rooms have been great!

A post Christmas stay for a couple of nights at The White Hart was pleasant rather than spectacular. I booked via expedia and made the fundamental mistake of assuming that a 4* hotel would have a lift. Arrived to find no lift in and we were on the first floor. My wife had a stroke in 2011 and struggled up the stairs but the room allocated was at the end of a long corridor. Hotel changed us to one near the staircase but this had the unfortunate position of being very close to the party area where on the second night the Salisbury Taxi Drivers were holding their annual Christmas party. Very noisy till 12.30 . Staff were very pleasant and special mention of Sarah, our waitress on the second evening when we were the only couple eating in the restaurant is justified as she was warm, charming and witty. Hotel charged £5 per night to park and this is obviously a must as my wife cannot walk long distances but we did get a disabled space both nights.

Room was a bit pokey and the toilet was so close to the wall I could not use it being a big chap, very embarrasing. Meals in the hotel (2 breakfasts, 1 dinner) were pleasant and what one would hope with a 4* hotel. Overall the stay was nice but not spectacular.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not over party area

Dear Anthonyandana

Many thanks for posting your recent review of the hotel.

I was pleased to read that throughout your stay you found the staff to be pleasant and have noted the specific mention of Sarah and will pass on to her and the team, I was further pleased to read that you found the food at dinner and breakfast to be pleasant also.

The hotel is a Grade II listed building, however the team are trained to help guests that require any assistance during their stay with us, and as you noted the hotel has provision for car parking on site.

Once again thank you for taking the time in posting your review and if I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate in contacting me direct.

Kindest Regards

Staff helpful and human. Food good and - once the ridiculous mess that the Merure call centre staff had made of our booking had been cleared up, a jolly time was had by all! Serious warning - do not try to book by phone through the Mercure system.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with friends

Dear Teddnow

Many thanks for taking the time in adding your review following your stay with us during December at the White Hart Hotel.

Firstly thank you for your kind words relating to the team at the hotel in that they were helpful and that the human element was seen rather than a mechanism in delivering service within the hotel. I have also passed on your kind words regarding the food to the Food and Beverage team, all leading to a "jolly time" during your stay.

I have also shared your comments relating to the issues with your initial reservation to prevent future concerns, please accept my apologies for any inconvenience this caused you.

I hope we have the opportunity in welcoming you back to Salisbury in the future and do not hesitate in contacting the hotel direct on 01722 327476 to make your reservation.

Kind Regards
