“Beautiful hotel with very comfy beds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We have stayed here several times - always excellent. Rooms are very comfortable, lovely bedding. Quality complimentary toileteries. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Staff are attentive and helpful.

Room Tip: Probably better not to be facing onto the main road.

Average hotel with great toiletries. The first room we were put in was very warm and stuffy. We had heard that some rooms had been upgraded with better AC and after notifying the front desk, we were promptly moved to one of these upgraded rooms for an additional fee. We were a little disappointed that no one congratulated us on our wedding; I had sent an email during booking stating that we would be staying there on our honeymoon. We were happy that our upgraded room included was very large compared to other hotel rooms with a larger bed and a fantastic tub/rain shower. Our Salisbury visit was on a unseasonably warm day. We only at breakfast at the hotel and although the buffet had a great variety of cold and hot foods, the food itself was somewhat average but the service was 4 star. The hotel has a beautiful outdoor garden area. The interior was a little dated but there were lots of people mingling and having drinks in every nook and cranny. The location was ideal. We walked a short ways to Salisbury Cathedral and enjoyed walking around the quaint town and shopping on "Fish Row".

Room Tip: Make sure if traveling in warm weather to request an upgraded room for a well functioning AC. I don...

Dear Gemini0917

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us.

I was pleased to read that you enjoyed the upgraded accommodation with its larger room, air conditioning unit as well as the larger bed and bathroom facility. I was also pleased to note that the service provided at breakfast was of a good standard and that the buffet selection offered a great variety of choice.

However I was disappointed that you were not congratulated upon your marriage, please allow me to express belated congratulations from both me and the team at the hotel and hope we have the opportunity in welcoming you back in the future.

Kind Regards

This is a great place to stay. We were touring England and booked this hotel and we were very happy with it. The only negative thing is that there's no lift, but that is common in England. The staff was very friendly and helpful and our room was fine. The location is wonderful, close to everything, yet quiet. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Room Tip: I'm not sure is there's a fitness center here or not as I never inquired.

Pleasant enough hotel to stay in & ideally situated for cathedral. Bedroom/bathroom a little tired & would benefit from an update. Beds definitely need updating ~ every time you turn over, your partner is bouncing around!! Parking good. Reception Staff - lovely. Bar Staff- not so hot!! NO LIFT so make sure you are agile enough to manage the stairs! Beautiful roaring open fire!

Room Tip: Don't stay in rooms overlooking main road as rather noisy. Not great views from the back but qui...

The White Hart is an elegant, grand 17th century hotel situated bang in the centre of the beautifully historic cathedral city of Salisbury. The public rooms equally are tastefully decorated.
with traditional but smart furnishings.

The wedding party couldn't have asked for anything more of the day. The hotel staff worked furiously but unobtrusively to transform the room hosting the wedding ceremony first to a formal dining area and later, to the evening reception complete with live band, DJ and sumptuous buffet. What was remarkable was how everyone commented on the incredible meal. 'Mass feeding' is normally a very sorry affair but the high quality of this 3-course meal shows that it can be done - melt-in-the-mouth top-quality meat cut from a joint (not sliced the day before), fresh (not from frozen!) vegetables cooked to perfection, and everything was served hot. The highly-trained, professional staff worked fast but were still attentive, approachable and friendly. There were plenty of 'nooks and crannies' for people to move around. Everything was utterly faultless and this helped to create a beautiful, memorable day.

Didn't stay so can't comment on rooms, breakfast etc
