The Staff really try their best for you. We booked directly with the establishment and room upgraded and were spoilt when mentioning my Husband was celebrating his birthday the night we planned our stay with them. Having been promised room 5 which was a spacious double room with an elegant bath tub in the bedroom and also a separate ensuite...

My wife wanted a location where she could walk to everything in Salisbury and found the Chapter House while walking down St. John's Street. After a week here with more to go, I can say that this place meets and exceeds all our needs. From the beginning, Thanassi and Jill have done everything possible to make the stay exceptional. Everyone...

What a fantastic Sunday lunch in a great setting. The service was good and fast. The whole atmosphere was great! I advise all to book as the restaurant was busy. The meal was huge and we were all very happy!

We had a beautiful large room - really good quality. Distinctive as was the rest of the hotel. Bathroom fine although a bath would have been nice - but I'm sure if we'd requested one when we booked that would have been sorted. Breakfast was good, as was the service. Definitely recommend - I'd certainly stay there again.

We had a great stay. Impressive room, large and comfortable, spotlessly clean and not noisy despite overlooking the street at the front of the hotel. Really friendly service from everyone at the hotel. Our only issue was slightly slow service in the restaurant. Fabulously convenient location for exploring the cathedral and town.

A lovely restaraunt and you get what you pay for in quality, not necessarily portion size. It is expensive but is very tasty. Not masses of choice but the staff are very nice and know a lot about the food if you ask them questions! Would only go on special occasions if willing to spend more money as a treat

Went with friends for lunch. First visit for a long time since it changed hands. Was recommended by a neighbour and it turned out to be good. Helpful and friendly staff, nice food, good ambience. Have booked to go for their Sunday lunch next.

We visited this restaurant recently for my Birthday great food, the service started off well but as the restaurant got busy the service went down hill but we were in a side room as there was several of us. However this did not spoil the evening and we would eat there again. We are unable to comment on the rooms...

This quaint boutique hotel is in the heart of Salisbury... what an amazing cute hotel. So full of history and culture. Quirky, romantic, clean. The gastro/bistro style restaurant/pub is also fabulous, nice menu, great wine list. My only critic would be that they allow dogs into the restaurant (fine) but not when the owners are provoking the dog and its...
