We stayed for just one night at 2 Park Lane at the start of our holiday which we had booked online. It's a modern yet contemporary B&B about 20-25 minute walk from the centre of Salisbury with a very convenient, large car park to the rear of the property. It's down an unadopted rather bumpy road which is very easy to miss - if you do miss it and take the next turning, you have to bump along it much further than if you do see the turning!
Nat met us in the car park and very kindly let us check in much earlier than anticipated which was a real bonus.
We had booked a Superior room, which was very nice and spotlessly clean with a comfy chair and Fairtrade refreshment tray, but I'm afraid we were both somewhat underwhelmed to discover that WiFi was an extra (rather expensive) charge at £5 per night and that despite it being a superior room there were only bath towels in the very large and otherwise beautifully done en-suite bathroom. We couldn't help but think that if you've paid the extra money for a superior room then it would be good if these 'luxury' items were included.
Nat was really helpful with directions into town and we had a lovely walk along the river into the centre where we climbed the Cathedral Spire - an amazing view from the top and a great dinner at a lovely Indian restaurant later that night.
Unfortunately we didn't sleep very well as despite having the sash window as wide open as possible, we were just far too hot - the bed was very comfortable but the 10.5 tog duvet was just too heavy for July in our opinion. We did mention this in the morning, and we appreciate that some people say it's too hot and some say it's too cold, however in July we both think that a 4.5 tog duvet with the option of a nice blanket or too would solve the problem.
Breakfast was good, the choices that we had made on a little sheet the night before were very well cooked and presented.
In summary, this is a spotlessly clean, professionally run B&B which could give most hotels a run for their money - I would describe it more as being run as a 'proper business' rather than a 'chatty over your breakfast 'what are you going to do today duck'' kind of B&B.
