“Room with a view - thank you!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Had a chill out break, and for us this was perfect. Room with a view - great even now - in the Summer I can imagine just stunning. Overlooks the River Avon and the Salisbury Cathredral. Room was comfortable and warm and had every facility available - clean and we'll serviced. The food was very good in both the restaurant and the bars and the service was both friendly and efficient. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. This hotel is only just out of the town centre but near enough to get to all the surrounding attractions. I know that all hotels suit some and not all - but I think The Rose And Crown goes a long way to changing this idea. I know that we will plan to return to this great venue.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. In the Summer you might want a patio. Or a four poster bedroom. This hot...

Very friendly staff Good location right on the River Executive rooms in need of refurbishment walls and ceilings showing signs of age Shower difficult to operate because it needed a service and controls were very stiff Rooms Spacious and comfortable Car park can get full Nice views of the cathedral Apart from excellent location very few facilities in Hotel though rated as 4 star

Room Tip: Executive rooms on two levels go for 1st floor

We stayed two nights , Christmas Eve and Christmas Day as we wanted a quiet but pampered Christmas.
We had trouble finding the hotel as our Sat Nav wanted to drop us off at the railway station. A tricky 20 minutes going round in circles then until we eventually typed in the street name for the hotel. So be warned folks! Its not that easy to find anyway.
Once at the hotel we had the nicest welcome anyone could wish for. The staff are delightful, faultless ! The service throughout the hotel was exceptional, so a huge "thank you" to everyone.
Our room was all we could have wished for. Everything was perfect down to the comfy bed, the view of the river, the quietness of the room too. It even had a iron and ironing board.
We felt the food was first class overall. Boxing day lunch was OK but not as special (naturally) as Christmas Day even though I opted for the Christmas Roast Turkey. But no complaints as it was still very good.
We walked over to the Cathedral - just a few minutes away - on Christmas afternoon and it was just beautiful. The choir were singing and it gave me goose bumps . The choir sang like angels; it was indeed heavenly and so moving!
If I had to find one thing to comment negatively about it would be the music in the restaurant. They played the same CD over and over again for the two days. Now I don't dislike Cliff Richard
that much but ........ !* ! *** !
It was such a shame as there is some really good Christmas music available. And music can make or break any party atmosphere. That was the only negative but we felt that it did spoil the ambience in the restaurant.
Would we go again? Yes but I would take some of our own CD's just in case ! :)

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the river are wonderful.

We have visited regularly through the years as we spent our honeymoon there 40 years ago. Current ownership is a big improvement on previous years, Food excellent and service friendly and attentive plus the location by river and cathederal is unbeatable.

The hotel is in a good location at the other side of the Cathedral from the city. It is good to have a hotel near the city with good parking facilities. The room in the modern extension was very good and we appreciated the good lighting. Did not eat in the hotel as seemed quite expensive. Had a drink in the bar but were disappointed that the fire was not lit on a December evening. Continental breakfast was good but did not feel we could ask for cold meats and cheeses. Perhaps could be set out on the buffet if available. Overall felt that it was a good three star hotel rather than four star.

Never stayed in Salisbury before but made a very good choice in this hotel. Wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived as it looked to be 'oldy worldy' but not that inside. The rooms were very clean and remarkably spacious. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Everything you needed for the stay whether business or pleasure was available. The only possible downside to the hotel was the cost of meals in the restaurant but the meals in the bar, although limited, were very good. This is another hotel I have added to places I would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms overlooking the gardens at the rear of the hotel.
