Nice quiet place gravel drive plenty of parking. Apartment had two rooms of good size small kitchen, shower OK. Very short walk to town plenty to see good place to eat. Byways itself has a gentle rise on the pavements to get to it. All in all well recommended.

I stayed here in August as part of a south coast trip. I found the staff to be pleasant and helpful. The room was nothing special but then there was no cause for complaint either. I seem to remember that the breakfast was quite good.

I stayed here with my mother this weekend and we were very pleased with this B&B: the location is absolutely ideal, it is tucked away on a quiet road with only a short walk into the centre of Salisbury (about 5 mins - impossible to get lost); the staff were all very friendly and allowed us to check-in early without...

My mum and I stayed here in September before a sponsored walk. After some initial confusion over our booking (a twin room) we were given 2 rooms at no extra charge and with no hassle. Rooms were clean, attractive and very comfortable. We were left a lovely cold breakfast as we were up very early. We were very impressed and... More

Great location for exploring Salisbury, which is such a wonderful city. We had 4 nights in this B&B and enjoyed our stay. Very clean, well kept, bright and airy. Beautifully warm in the evenings. Lovely breakfasts - tried most things on the menu over the 4 mornings - all A1. A couple of things were disappointing though - the shower... More

First impressions mixed though the old house grew on us and after staying in modern hotels the eclectic mix of pre and post war furniture in this hotel seemed to fit the surroundings. Endless supplies of tea and coffee were a welcome change from the regulation two of each. Parking a real bonus as Salisbury can be difficult and expensive... More

Byways House is a large, old Victorian (?) house just a few minutes’ walk from Salisbury. We booked this a bit last minute as we were just passing through Salisbury. Our room was a bit make shift. We felt that it needed some TLC (tender loving care) – It felt rather minimalistic and in need of a makeover. There were... More

Very clean lovely traditional Victorian house and gardens. Comfortable bed and room, plenty of hot water. Car park is a great bonus as its very busy in Salisbury. Short walk into the centre, although downhill on the way. Breakfast very good, lovely buffet and/or buffet. Unlimited supply of tea, coffee, toast etc. highly recommended, as quiet and away from pubs/clubs.
