This is a such a charming hotel in a great location. We enjoyed Matt at the bar so much we came to talk to him and have our meals every night! Jenny behind the front desk was so fun and helpful! The rooms were charming! We loved this hotel!
Matt and Carly made my stay enjoyable.
The first couple of days I was in a room with poor Internet connection.
Lovely old coaching inn. Very friendly. Excellent breakfast.....food in the evening good too. Very central. Good housekeeping.
Internet in the room was non-existent.......strong in the public rooms.
Good location, fair prices, lovely rooms
No good for families with young children, No lifts, reception staff need more training, poor parking, restaurant staff very uptight.
Comfy large bed
TV didn't work Lack of staff interest Like trying to sleep on the terraces at Old Trafford with noise from night club opposite room until after 4am
The courtyard was absolutely charming, and the central location was perfect for exploring. We were able to eat in three 14th century locations!
The one way system in Salisbury is daunting, and the hotel has only a tiny car park. However the benefits of the location far outweighed those.
Comfortable room with an excellent bathroom, good dinner and breakfast. Central location but quiet.
Bar area cold and lacking in atmosphere, unlike the rest of the hotel which is full of character. We went there by train as parking is dreadfully expensive.
Clean and Romantic location Medival style and comfy bed
Having to do my own toast No sandwiches on 24hour room service
Jennifer was the manager. she was very professional and kind
I was not advised about the breakfast and thought it is not included while after checking out other friends asked me why I did not go to the breakfast in the mornings! I was so disappointed as when I booked it seemed that I have to pay separately for the breakfast. but my friends who paid the same money said that it was included and they had it.... a pitty....but the rest was wonderful
The location was excellent, right in the middle of town. As we walked in there was a beautiful coutryard and the reception had some wonderful features liek the skull grandfather clock.
Unfortunately, like the room, the skull clock needed a refurb. The deor was very dated and the wallpaper was coming off in places. The bathroom was especially poor, with tiles coming off from the wall, a yellowing plastic shower and towels that looked like they had some miles on them.
location helpful staff
wi-fi poor room too hot at night coffee at breakfast weak car park too small and guests charged for use it's an old building I know but it is gloomy and decoration/fittings are dated
Great service from Rachel (who organise our function and Matt who was our barman
In the main bar it seems to be ill stocked and never enough staff
Grumpy bar man. We were told there was no lift so had to carry our cases up flights of stairs when in fact there is a lift but apparently it was broken! No help offered with cases. There was a wedding taking place which we had to walk through to get in and out of hotel. Room very stuffy but a fan was provided thankfully.
The spacious room size; location close to sights; the retention of historic features (like graffiti found beneath wallpaper layers etc.) in this ancient hotel.
Noise throughout the (Friday) night from smokers talking (ie shouting) outside the club in the Cathedral Hotel across Milford Street. Reception aware of problem but only advised asking for a quiet room next time.
excellent location, lovely hotel which had a wedding party going on but you would have never of known, great breakfast overall lovely time.
no car parking at hotel, not having enough time to take advantage of the excellent surroundings.
wonderful hotel for those who like to be "living" in history.
wifi was "spotty" prpbably had to do with age of the building
The barman who as on duty evening of 17th Sept.
Reception staff, in fact all staff were sullen and not a bit friendly or customer orientated.Poor plumbing.Failure to adequately check rooms before occupation.Total lack of car park organisation despite the exorbitant parking fee. We had to wait 40 mins to get out even though the keys to the offending car were behind reception Staff need s lesson in how to smile
Lovely building, big comfy bed, the breakfast was good, the courtyard, and the fact we could park safely, we were in walking distance to the cathedral and shops.
There was nobody to help us find our way to our room we ended up in a broom cupboard as the door to access the stairs was not marked "residence rooms", the lift was not working when we found it, we walked up 2 flights of stairs with heavy cases, the room was boiling hot and we could not open the windows, the noise coming from the nightclub was continuous till 4.00am. There needed to be someone front of house to step in and help guests, it seemed that the only people around were the receptionists who were doing it all. We went into the bar which looked nice, but the non-resident regulars obviously have a good laugh by using those they have not seen before as entertainment, we went and sat outside( not that we don't enjoy a joke) but this was not what we expected on our one night stay to celebrate our wedding aniversary.
The hotel was tired, the room furniture was old and battered, the phone didn't work and it was not a welcoming experience. I went outside to eat in the evening because of the reception I got when asking if I could have a bar snack. When I asked about parking I was told I should have booked and if not there was nowhere to park. I wasn't aware that I should book and found a car park round the corner. Such a shame as the hotel has a lot of history and with some TLC could be really nice.
overall, it was a very enjoyable stay.all our needs were catered for very well.thank you again.
our room was above the bar,and facing onto the courtyard,so was a bit noisy. other than that,all good.
staff uncooperative He refused to provide a chair to support a suitcase, until the intervention of the manager requested from me, which has instead been done; despite the heavy suitcase did not report the presence of an elevator located outside tampering very hot room with no air conditioning - not even a chair or stool to put your suitcase - expensive price
Character, quietness, central location, comfortable room and bathroom
Lack of free car parking, difficult if arriving by car, breakfast not included
The hotel building was lovely and its position very convenient.
Room was extremely hot and without a fan would have been impossible. Also, the bar was very disappointingly bland and had no atmosphere at all.
Location is excellent and the feeling of been in a traditional building made of our visit to Salisbury more romantic.
Our room was not ready at the check in hour. However, staying in the court yard having a beer from the hotel bar was quite good whilst waiting.
The charm and the food were good the staff ,the waiter in the resteraunt his name was matt was very good and nice food
The shower and the room was very warm also the lift was a bit of a nightmare
