Legacy Rose and Crown Hotel

Got a last minute deal, and for the money, couldn’t fault it. Had the room at the front, full of timber beams and skew walls, large, with a good bathroom. Unfortunately trucks do wait for the traffic lights right underneath the window, so this could wake you up in the morning.

Love it. So friendly, so warm and atmospheric. Truly lovely and quaint old coaching house hotel, but with first class service and food. A one night stop for a chill out birthday treat. Tops. There is no more to say except we did pop up the road to see the new Tourist Information Centre at Stonehenge - seen the stones many times. Keen to see what had been added and the standard of presentation and of course, cost. Waste of time and money. Weird building, cafe not cheap, shop full of foreign tat. Info centre - might as well buy a wee book or go on line. Overall - can’t believe they get up to ten thousand visitors a day in peak summer - way too your money.

A very delightful period property from the outside, filled with all the mod cons on the inside. Very spacious rooms with exceptional large comfy beds. Period features throughout the main building with exposed beams and squeaky floors! A delightfully quiet stay, food was exceptional and couldn't get enough of the veg which was cooked to perfection. The Expresso machine in the room made the stay that more enjoyable, we lost ourselves in the overly large bed on more than one occasion during the night which was a bonus as we both like our own space. Attentive and friendly staff, slightly over priced drinks but the exceptional food, service and fantastic atmosphere made up for that. Would definitely stay again, hopefully try another room.

Good evening to the team of the Legacy Rose and Crown Hotel. First thing first, i would like to say a big thank for the lovely stay on the last weekend(21st/01/18-21/01/18). My room was RM17 in the new wing. It was so lovely, nice, clean, spacious and it had a very nice garden view. The dinner menu and the lunch menu are lush and amazing. First night I had a baked avocado with Stilton and bacon, after that i had a Thai green curry with cooked meatballs and poppadoms and basmati rice then pineapple cheesecake with butternut scotch sauce. Second night I had the same starter, and chicken supreme with basmati rice and raisin with mango chutney sauce, then I had pear and blackberry crumble with custard. Both of them were amazing. My "little baby"(my stomach) did not cry at all. The lunch menu was very tasty too. Congratulation to the Kitchen team. The location of the hotel is very good too. it is very close to the Cathedral and it is not far from Stonehenge and the Old Sarum too. Next time (hopefully very soon), I would love to come back to Salisbury and stay with you guys again. Special thanks to Miri, Ovi, Anthony, Kate and Katie (the 2 lovely ladies on the reception). Best Regards Attila Nagy (The Hungarian EMINEM).

We met up with friends for Sunday lunch in the spacious airy restaurant with a lovely view of the river. We all arrived early and sat with a drink on the settees in the dining room. Eventually we went to our table for our meal. Although there was a Sunday lunch choice, there were all the other dishes to choose from on the main menu. The service was friendly but unobtrusive. Our friend who has a small appetite chose the children’s Sunday lunch without any questions. The food was well cooked and presented. Throughout the meal we were not rushed and we had all had a lovely ‘catch up time’.

We have visited this hotel 3 times and never had a problem, but on this occasion it was the worst night sleep I think we have ever had .. we had room 16 which was a lower garden view room ..which was huge and perfect and directly oposite the beautiful lake, a very large bed which was comfy the problem was the above room ...constant loud squeaking of floorboards ..the people above were moving around a lot around 11pm this went on for about an hour and then again at 2.30 am and 6.30 each time it sounded like a herd of elephants having a sand dance wasnt the above neighbours fault really it is the terrible condition of the boards ...every single step it creaked ..we ended up leaving very early without breakfast we told the receptionist who gave us details to contact the manager which we will do, it is a very nice hotel just ask for an upper floor room

I selected the Legacy Rose and Crown for a work trip down to Bornemouth. I was travelling from Yorkshire and this afforded my a stop off about any hour from my morning meeting. Again, I have to say, TripAdvisor reviewers came up trumps, as it was everything suggested. Easy to find on the South edge of Salisbury and ready access to the A338 in the morning. Good sized car park and an easy check in by a very nice young lady who got me booked in for dinner at the same time too. I had a lovely large room with views over the river toward the Cathedral, however, this was early January and I managed a brief view before darkness enveloped the area. The room had a great en suite, plenty of room to relax and everything worked as it should. My evening meal was divine, some chicken and pepper skewers on a bed of noodles, peppers, mushrooms and onions in a Ho sin sauce. Fresh, vibrant, colourful and really tasty. I followed with a cheese board which was huge and included grapes, celery and apple. Delicious. After a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed, I breakfasted with cereal, fruit juice and toast, along with some scrambled eggs infused with smoked salmon, shaped in a timbale ring. Tasty as you could find. I checked out easily, at a very affordable price for a hotel like this in the South and I was in Bournemouth ahead of time. If I'm ever down this way again..................I know where to stay. Brilliant. Well done.

Stayed for 2 nights in the heath suit (room 5) room was beautiful bed was comfy only draw back was the room got very very hot in the night. Great location 5 min walk to the cathedral another 5 min walk to the city center, half hour drive to stone henge be aware it's £16:50 each to go in and another £5 for parking!! Plenty of parking at the hotel and a corner shop just across the road. We only ate breakfast which was continental cooked was extra. We didn't eat in the restaurant as it was to expensive for us @ £21 for an 8oz rump steak and starters @ £6 for a bowl of soup. Thought there maybe a bar menu or some sort of deal available but there wasnt. There is a hungry hour we just round the corner or plenty of restaurants 10min walk away in the town center

We had several days here and on the whole were happy with our stay. The vast majority of the staff, especially the senior staff, were very nice We were warned the older rooms did have sloping floors but a chock under the bed would stop it rolling. Housekeeping could have been better and the heating was due to be fixed so sooner rather than later is essential. Location to the cathedral is very close and on site free parking is a bonus. The sitting lounge with the fire was lovely and so relaxing. Overall it was a pleasant stay but with minor adjustments could have been a great stay.

Took mother-in-law for birthday Sunday roast with my children. The children’s portions were huge, outstanding value for money. Adults portions were super, loads of veg supplied with dinner, great service would definitely come again and again.
