We had gone through the village of harnham on short cut to Somerset and commented how peaceful and beautiful it was, imagine our suprise when we arrived at the same village and turned right to the hotel with a pleased smile of satisfaction. We had arrived well before 2pm but we're able to use the car park and headed off into the cathedral ground and on to the town. Several hours later we booked in and were given a huge room, huge bed with modern fittings the room was nice and warm with a lovely shower. We had a very nice evening meal and sweet competitively priced and retired. After a lovely sleep and and hot shower we went for breakfast we'd booked a continental breakfast and stuck with that although cooked English breakfasts are available for a little extra. The breakfast was plentiful with everything you'd expect from continental and with wonderful views of the swans and ducks on the river which passes by. I will definitely return hopefully in the summer when I can take advantage of the outside eating and the grounds watching the river in the peace and quiet of this little oasis.

We just stayed at this hotel which I booked through Amoma for £85.90 for Saturday night plus full breakfast. Unfortunately the hotel was not given the price we paid but the lower continental rate but they honoured our booking once I showed them the booking confirmation. I wasn’t expecting much for the price paid but was impressed by the size of the room we were given. Although it was on the lower floor in the old part of the building and a little smelly from the oldness it was extremely comfortable. Our bed was very large and comfy with a seating area, a desk/dressing table and a large modern bathroom which had everything you needed including cotton buds & balls. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at how hot the food was when served and cooked beautifully. Breakfast the next morning was also a pleasant surprise with lots on offer and again hot. If I ever have the need to stay in Salisbury again I would definitely stay here. Is would like to warn people about Amoma though and would not use them again but book direct with the hotel. I was a little cross when I arrived in reception to be told we only have the lower breakfast booking but Kate and Ovi who looked after us did a wonderful job and made sure we got what we paid for. Kate even spoke to Amoma on behalf of the hotel and ourselves to try and sort out the underpayment. A big thank you to both of you and I hope the underpayment has been sent to you

I decided to book the Rose & Crown as a last minute decision whilst attending a course in Salisbury. With an exam early the next morning and a long commute to face that night and in the morning i decided to look for somewhere to stay. I booked the Rose & Crown because it was nearby and got a good deal on the room, but after sating there, this is the only place to stay in Salisbury. It is perfectly located, as it's not to far from the city centre, but out of the way of the city traffic. Walking into Salisbury is a breeze by walking through the grounds of the Cathedral (15 mins, see photo). The staff were great, professional and engaging and nothing was too much trouble. As a treat, I had breakfast in bed and it was very good, just the right amount. I had a lovely hot shower in the morning and it set me up for the exams (which were very hard). Next time I am trying the restaurant, as i was too busy revising this time.

We recently returned from this hotel after a few relaxing days. I wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was delightful, including the hotel ambience, the room, which was spacious for a Standard, and bright as well as quiet. Everywhere was spotlessly clean.The staff were a joy, friendly, helpful and with ready smiles. We had lunch when we arrived and dinner both nights. The choice of food was excellent as was the quality; breakfast was particularly good. On one afternoon we had tea and cake; my carrot cake was moist and tasty, my husband's fruit cake was equally good. Both were generous portions. There is a lovely terrace beside the river to relax, to eat or to have a drink. The hotel is a short stroll to the Cathedral and the town.

We chose this hotel because of the location, parking and good reviews and it was spot on. Spent two nights here, mainly to visit the Terry Pratchett exhibition at the museum. Comfortable, well-equipped room and made to feel welcome by all the staff. Very good food both at dinner and breakfast. We were on the hotel's explore Salisbury deal so it was excellent value. Would definitely recommend.

The wedding party had a Greek theme and the food was superb. Our room was in the modern extension and had a small patio looking out to the river. Breakfast In morning was great, plentiful buffet and good hot coffee.

I stayed here recently with a group of friends for our regular reunion. It was our second visit. The location is excellent with some rooms opening onto the riverside and it is just a short walk to the cathedral and city centre. The restaurant and bar look over the river with extra seating outside. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful starting with the Manager and extending to everyone else. We had one minor problem which was dealt with immediately to our satisfaction. A most enjoyable stay. Some rooms haveWe had such a good time that we have rebooked for our next meet up.

This is a great place to stay and only a short walk from the Cathedral and town center.We stopped over on our way south.The room was lovely with views of the river and Cathedral..It has beautiful gardens down to the riverside,We hope to stop here on our way back.

Spent a night here , and thoroughly enjoyed the experience . When one's bedroom's French windows open onto riverside lawns , and there is a largely unobstructed view of Salisbury Cathedral's spire beyond , it is difficult not to be enchanted by the location. The inn is genuinely old , but with modern extensions that offer very comfortable rooms . The restaurant is very adequate , and all the staff with whom we came into contact were unfailingly courteous and helpful . It is within a relatively easy walk of Salisbury itself , and we would have no hesitation in staying at the Rose and Crown on any future visit to the area.

The hotel from the outside looks very traditional though it has had some modern extensions that you only see when entering the car park. We arrived early,around 9.30am and though not able to get a room (as I would not have expected) the receptionist said we could leave the car in their car park whilst we started our exploration of Salisbury. They did allow us to complete the paperwork so when we returned we could just collect our key. The room we had was a deluxe and was one of the traditional rooms in the hotel. The room was a reasonable size, with a older tv on the wall which had freeview channels. The bed was probably a queen and pretty comfortable. The bathroom was small but modern with a shower over the bath. We did not eat in the hotel that evening and the main bar was closed due to a wedding, though you could have sat in a small pine room and ordered a drink though it did look a bit soulless. In the morning we had breakfast, it was included in the price, though until we went into the dining room did not realise that it was only a continental breakfast which was included and a hot breakfast buffet was a additional £6 which we declined. It was ok, cereals, juices,tea and coffee,toast, fruit and some freshly baked pastry’s.The dining room overlooked the river and their were some tables and chairs outside which I am sure would be very pleasant in the warmer months. I must add the location of the hotel was very well located,, it was a10 minute max walk through a little lane and a small park to reach the cathedral. The staff we met were very friendly and we enjoyed our brief stay. It was not quite good enough to warrant 4 stars but do not let that put you off staying.
