“Certain Areas in Need of Attention”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

Stayed here with friends for Christmas Shopping and to visit Cathedral. Staff at reception very friendly but girl who booked us in lacked greatly in knowledge of hotel information and local area.

Cannot fault food which was delicious. Breakfast food was also great but location of buffet in another room not ideal as staff coming along with hot drinks etc along with guests ferrying their plates of food was 'an accident waiting to happen'. Certainly not a safe area if small children around.

Room very clean and comfry but decoration quite drab and in need of attention. Rooms onto main road very noisy.

All in all an ok hotel for one night, if using a special offer as normal prices way too expensive for this hotel, could be really special if certain areas were addressed.

Room Tip: Ask for room at back of hotel not on road side which is noisy.

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.
