“Welcoming and well located”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

I stayed two nights with Lois and John recently, and thought they were the most warm and welcoming hosts. Their B'nB has a very friendly atmosphere, excellent breakfast, and a marvellous location just across the road from the Salisbury Cathedral close. I found the room very comfortable, and loved Lois's porridge, slow-cooked overnight. Parking was not a problem, as all-day tickets were provided. This is one of the nicest B'nB establishments I have ever stayed in, and I can heartily recommend it. I would certainly stay there again.

Lois and John are wonderful hosts who go out of their way to be helpful. We had three of the four rooms and found Spire House a great base for visiting the catheral and Stonehenge. The rooms are creatively decorated, and the breakfasts were perfect both days.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are quieter.

Stayed with a friend only for a night. Atmosphere and owner's welcome was so lovely, and room and house at all gave me very good cosy feeling. Breakfast is strongly recommended.
I'd love to be back again!

We chose Spire House as our first stop for 3 nights on a 3-week trip to England and Scotland, and were very impressed by the warmth of our greeting and and coziness of the house. Lois and John were very helpful in answering our questions, and making us welcome. The English Breakfast was excellent, and something we used as our yardstick for measuring the rest. Breakfast was a good time for meeting other visitors, in a family style setting. They do good coffee!

The location was central, with easy walking to the train, the market, the museums, and of course, the cathedral. The duvets were warm, and the beds inviting - they were easily able to accommodate my request for a feather-free room. By the time we moved on, we were so over jet lag!

Room Tip: Our twin room had an excellent view of the cathedral spire.

Recently I spent two nights in Salisbury, wanting to see the cathedral, the market, the town, and Stonehenge. Spire House couldn't have been more convenient, being located right outside the cathedral close, and on the road leading directly to the market and the bus to Stonehenge. But what recommends this most are the owners, John and Lois, who go out of their way to help you and make you feel at home.
And the room was beautiful!

Room Tip: The rooms toward the back are quieter, although the view of the cathedral from the front room could...

Thanks very much for the review, this make such a difference to our business. John was particularly delighted to feature in your comments as he has only recently started to work full time in the B&B. Having recently retire he now takes on a much bigger role in the running of Spire House

The location, room, breakfast, hosts, etc. were all great. We spent 3 nights. I highly recommend the Spire House. Our friends were in the triple room and my husband and I were in the romantic double en suite with the bay window over looking the cathedral spire and both rooms were very nice. We had a car but everything in Salisbury was in walking distance. When we had trouble finding a parking space on the street, our kind host, John, got in the car with my husband and took him to a parking spot. Lois was very helpful too. She told us about a lovely, small town to visit on our trip to Bath that we would have missed without her suggestion. Our hosts found an item I had left in the room and they are mailing it back to me. That is service!

I highly recommend Spire House. The owners are friendly and the place is furnished with taste. Breakfast is generous. The rooms on the back can be preferred to the ones on the street that can be noisy although with a beautiful view on the cathedral spire.
