Best Western Red Lion Hotel
Ranked #10 of 16 Hotels in Salisbury
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The hotel has a favourable location in the centre of the lovely town of Salisbury . It has a very attractive exterior in keeping with its Medieval origin. The bedroom we stayed in was clean and the large bed was extremely comfortable. The room was cool because the radiator was concealed behind full-length curtains.
The breakfast was simply delicious with an excellent choice of food, cooked to order. We looked forward to breakfast on the four mornings we dined there. We were so impressed with breakfast that we decided to order evening meals which were equally impressive. This hotel is worth staying in for the food alone.

Room Tip: Our bedroom was overlooking a main road which was a bit noisy. Ask for a room overlooking the courty...

Just had a long weekend at this lovely old hotel. A suprise for my birthday from my wife. We found the hospitality and help from the staff to be first class. The room was large and clean and although your in the heart of the city, the hotel is peaceful and very welcoming.

Decent room and sleep but mood soon ruined for a bowl of alpen, a glass of fruit juice, pot of tea and a sausage sandwich to take away after the further 15mins for the food to be delivered.... all for a fantastic price of £30.50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RIPE OFF and WILL NEVER stay here again

Dear Guests

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at our property.

I have looked into the price charged for the items you ordered and found that the cost is more than half you were charged. I must say as before in other reviews that it is far cheaper to book breakfast when booking a room than to pay on the day. I f you can produce a reciept for the breakfast I would be more than happy to refund the difference.

This our first stay at the Red Lion and we found that it has a real old-England Coach House charm about it. The staff are all very friendly,helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was clean, bright and airy, featuring an Art Deco/Victorian style complete with flowers decorating the firplace, a comfortable bed (Complete with teddy bear-most comforting) and lots of storage space. The generous breakfast is continental or Full English. We heartily recommend the Red Lion and would not hesitate to stay again.

Stayed for 2 nights on 2nd November and loved it. Room 75 was very comfortable although the bathroom was a bit tired. The hotel was lovely and warm and welcoming and the staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble. Parking is an issue we received a £50 fine as we did not get to the car park behind the hotel before 8 am to move our car to an all day car park. We have however resolved this as when we return (which we certainly plan to do) we will book parking at the hotel which do have limited spaces.

I loved the history of this hotel. The builders of Salisbury Cathedral stayed here and it has operated ever since. The entry courtyard and the wonderful restaurant were lovely. The room was okay for an older hotel. Our room was on the street and they kindly supplied ear plugs. Unfortunately the beds were like rocks and obviously need renewing as soon as possible.
