“Beautiful room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We arrived at this hotel by chance as we did not expect to be in Taunton, having just arrived back from a Norwegian cruise. This hotel was beautifully decorated, the superior bedroom we had was large, complete with king size four poster bed. Lovely furniture, good bathroom with large sized shower tray. A good breakfast and on site parking. Would recommend and stay again if in area.

This Hotel is an executive B and B.

Staff were very polite, helpful and no concerns raised bu us during the stay.

The Four Poster Room was good size, albeit getting used to the old building and slightly sloped floor was a bit strange, but these older buildings you must accept these things.
The room was very clean and tidy, bedding was fresh and clean as was the towels etc.
Bathroom and shower spacious enough, and sufficient hot water for a good shower.
TV wall mounted up to date with several channel choices, and the usual Tea making facilities.
There was an Iron and Board in the wardrobe, and hairdryer provided.

The only small let down was, No Tissues in the bedroom, and No bottled water, at the price paid one would expect a courtesy bottle of water, as most people these days do not drink the tap water.

Bar was available did not need as we were at a wedding function that evening in a nearby location.

Key allowed user to access front door as well as bedroom in the event you returned late.

Breakfast was a selection of juices, cereals and a choice from the cooked menu, albeit the cooked menu was limited, to a selection of traditional fayre. This being more akin to a B and B, to improve as a Hotel, it would be better to have more selection of Hot foods, ie Porridge, Smoked fish, salmon, etc.

The room became very busy at one time with some residents having to wait a short period, perhaps to overcome this, maybe utilise the Bar area as a additional more relaxed breakfast area, as it is next to the dining room, and a short walk for the Juice and cereal.

All in all a good placeand position for the shops and the bars of Taunton. With ample off road parking

My wife and I stayed at Salisbury House for 2 nights in July. I have no problem with them calling it a hotel, it was nothing like the home-stay style B&B's we stayed in at other times while we were in England. Our room was nice albeit a little old-fashioned, but the bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of space for the two of us. We were treated very well by the staff who made up our room immediately we arrived allowing us to check-in an hour and a half early. The hotel was very conveniently situated to the centre of town and the cricket ground. The only downside was that we were (unexpectedly) charged 5 pounds per day for parking.

We think this is more a B & B/Guesthouse than a hotel, our room was quite tight but adequate, (Room 14) very clean, very friendly, Full English Breakfast with toast was very good, a few cereals and a Banana or apple being another option. Great location for walking into town, making everything very accessible. Down side for us was as it was right next to a very busy road and it was very warm weather we had to choose between being hot or putting up with the traffic noise. Bed was a bit soft for us which made sleep uncomfortable. We wouldn't stay again but we would recommend it.

Ok, so I would describe it as a guest house rather than a hotel. Nonetheless, we had a very pleasant stay. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend to others.

If you're used to the idea that all hotel rooms in Europe are small and over-priced you'll be surprised by the Salisbury. The rooms are spacious, well appointed (if not a bit antiqued), and it's perfectly located near the center of Taunton, which in my case makes all business activities an easy walk. I've stayed at the Salisbury twice and in both cases the WIFI was spotty at best - in other words, don't count on the internet as you'll likely be disappointed. The breakfast is more that adequate and the staff are generally helpful. All in all it's an inexpensive place to stay that provides nice comfortable rooms and a good breakfast. If you're looking for a high end hotel with great amenities, you're not going to find it here (or probably in Taunton at all).

This is not a hotel it's a B and B.
Having to stand on a busy street while you wait for the door bell to be responded to is not ideal.
It's well decorated and pleasant with good sized rooms furnished well with everything you need, although a glass in the bathroom and a shelf for toiletries would be useful.
Breakfast is ok but the cheapest jams are supplied.
I complained about the very large amount if hairs on the mattress cover, we are talking about enough to cover a small plate , the answer was " well there is a sheet over the top what's the problem" !
I was moved to another room although no help was offered to carry everything up two flights of stairs.
It's a shame the staff are only there to make money they do not engage with the guests.
