                      Historic room + modern bathroom, great breakfast, beautiful courtyard, close to everything

                      Decor needs some updating, parking not free

                    • Family with children
                      5.4

                      Hotel stuff are so kind. Their restaurant and bar are so good.

                      On floor I found so many hair... My baby slept on cot and the morning he got some red spot on his face like bug bite... Others are clean but I didn't like this 2 things...

                      9.4

                      Love the location. Also the delightful patio. We find the hotel extremely charming and comfortable. The staff are always very helpful

                    • Family with children
                      7.8

                      Good location in Salisbury

                      Somewhat small rooms so a family must pay for two rooms

                    • Older travelers
                      9.2

                      I loved the ambience of the hotel. The courtyard is famous for its escape from the hurly burly of the town centre, but the rest of the hotel was also of a similar feel. The food was excellent as was the service. All minor questions and requests were answered, and all staff helped in a friendly caring manner. I shall certainly stay here again!

                      Difficult one this, because the structure of the hotel only allows about four cars to park. Next door there is a short stay car park, with a longer stay about five minutes walk away. It it feasible for the hotel to come to some arrangement to allow overnight parking in the short stay car park? Minor quibble, but it would improve the overall satisfaction factor.

                    • Group of friends
                      9.2

                      We loved the atmosphere in this very old but comfortable hotel. It has a charming courtyard. Our room was like a suite (sitting room and bedroom) and was very comfortable. We also enjoyed the food and had both the full English breakfast as well as a gourmet evening meal.We really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would highly recommend it to others.

                      The hotel staff are exceptional, friendly and attentive. The room allocated was spacious and comfortable while the good weather allowed us to make good use of the courtyard garden area for snacks and drinks. The hotel is located central to the city attractions.

                      The TV channels were mostly unwatchable due to interference.

                      The hotel is very well situation for visiting historic Salisbury, and the staff, with no exceptions, were some of the most helpful, friendly and efficient I have ever encountered in a hotel. The restaurant is also very good.

                      The room we stayed in, although large, well appointed and very comfortable was in a new wing which was badly designed in that the rooms gave onto a road when they could have been designed to give onto the courtyard.

                      very friendly staff, good location, excellent food and excellent value for money

                      there was an intermittent noise which I think must have been coming from the heating or ventillation system which made it difficult to sleep

                      The room and bathroom. Good shower and TV. Ambience of public areas.Situation excellent.

                      Communication was poor with regard to breakfast arrangements. Requests for replacement light bulb and toothpaste were not reponded to.

                      Location is marvelous.The atmosphere is also nice.

                      When we took a bath,hot water didn't come out quite enough.It took ages to fill the tab.It's a bit annoying to unlock the door of the entrance to the accomodation area every time.

                      Cozy and charming hotel with ancient roots in local history. Attentive staff. Great location. Had no noise problems.

                      Dinner was a little hit-or-miss; chicken dish was excellent, fish dish very ho-hum.

                      The furnishings, quaint atmosphere, and friendly staff.

                      The rooms at the front of the hotel are completely uninhabitable at the weekends due to the noise from the Cathedral Hotel opposite. We had to terminate our stay after one night, as no rooms were available away from the street.
