Hele byen er velbevart fra tidl 12-1300-tal. Mysig og koselig småby i England. Gangavstand til sentrum og katedralen. It is a beautiful small town. Not far to the shopping center. Love to comeback some time.

A group comprising 3 couples converging on Salisbury as the mid-point between our home locations. We selected this hotel because of the location and the offer proposed. We were not disappointed as the executive double rooms were very comfortable, the food was very good, the drinks flowed (as did the adjacent river), the staff we encountered were attentive, helpful and accommodating. All in all, a most pleasant stay in Salisbury and a short walk to the Cathedral which was awe in-spire-ing!!! (Did you see what I did there?). Try it. Rachel, Katy and the team do an excellent job of making a home from home work very well. Congrats. We will return for “Six-pack in Salisbury: The Sequel”

We visited as a group of seniors over the week end. The terrace with the river view was ideal to relax on arrival. The staff were always on hand to provide for your needs. The dinner was cooked to order and well presented with a varied menu for everyone to be satisfied. Breakfast was buffet style at weekend but you could request other items which were cooked to order. On week days the breakfast was cooked to order. As with all groups there were issues of noisy room location but this was quickly solved by the quick change. In 10 minutes you are in the cathedral gardens and the city centre. All in all and excellent location for a break.

Just back from three nights at the Rose and Crown in Salisbury. There is ample free parking, and the wifi was good. The bar/restaurant overlooks the river at the rear of the hotel with beautiful views of the cathedral and the water meadows. The staff were friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was good, and there was ample choice. Just one word of warning, if you are booking a double room, or booking via a booking service, make sure you avoid the John Tobin room. It is cramped and has no windows apart from a high skylight above the bed that cannot be reached to open it. The room was extremely claustrophobic. Having seen the much nicer room that my friend had been allocated (a twin overlooking the river), I queried this with reception. They checked the booking (it had been done online and the confirmation is from, and said that there were two different prices for two very different rooms. I said I did not recall any such detail on the booking confirmation received (I have now checked, and there was definitely no difference specified). the reception staff kindly upgraded the room to one with an outside window at the rear, which was very pleasant. So if booking online or direct with the hotel, be sure to avoid this pitfall and avoid the John Tobin room, which should come with a strong warning. But all credit to the hotel for resolving this very quickly. We enjoyed our stay there and would very happily return. The hotel is a very pleasant 10 minute walk to the cathedral, and is 15 minutes on foot from the centre of Salisbury.

We had a couple of nights here so we could have a good look round Salisbury’s sights. It is an easy walk into the centre of town past the Cathedral,which is really worth a visit. Well worth a visit too is Edward Heath’s last home which is opposite the Cathedral and is full of treasures. The hotel itself is a lovely old building with lots of character but also has its downside. We were in room 1 which has bags of character but is on the roadside which was quite noisy so if you’re a light sleeper you may want to avoid it. There was a bath with a good strong shower in it in a good sized bathroom. Good in room facilities of coffee machine and kettle for making tea,and good hanging space for clothes. The continental breakfast was enough for us with croissants,juice,cereal and toast but the cooked breakfasts looked good. A lovely trip to Salisbury even though it rained almost all the time with plenty to see and do.

Use the postcode in your SatNav as the road is quite long. There is quite a sizeable car park. The hotel looks attractive with its old beams. Our room was quite large and in the old part of the hotel so beams, high ceiling, slopes on floors. It is well furnished. The bed is comfortable although a little soft and slopes to the middle but we slept okay. Bathroom with bath and shower fittings. Breakfast was excellent in the dining room with river views.

We've stayed at the Rose and Crown many times over the years and it never disappoints. This time it was just a one night stay and we were in one of the Executive rooms overlooking the river. Room was very spacious and the fixtures and fittings excellent. One minor niggle. Our stay was on a Saturday night which meant that the breakfast was on Sunday. Only a buffet breakfast is offered on a Sunday. Which is a shame because every other day of the week the full breakfast is very good indeed.

Room was nice. Although it was a disabled access room and I prefer a regular room. The guy at check in told us the dinner menu was set as it was Easter Sunday. However, the bar staff said no it wasn’t and we were given the regular menu. With choices. Unfortunately, the Sunday carvery tasted like it had been sitting there all day. When we checked out, the same guy tried to charge us £9.95 for breakfast when he knew full well it was £7.95 for guests staying there. That was twice he tried to rip us off.

We booked the Legacy Rose and Crown online and are happy that we chose it. If you were just driving by you wouldn’t give it a second glance as the facade resembles an old pub. The hotel is quite nice inside. Certainly not as it looks from the road. Check in was easy and since the hotel is small it was easy to find our room. Walking down the rustic hallway, we weren’t sure what we had gotten into. Our room was quite nice. It was reasonably large and clean with a nicely modern bathroom. Probably the largest bath towels we’ve had in a hotel. The room had wooden exposed beams and a plaster wall coating. It suited us nicely. WIFI was excellent. The included continental breakfast was typical, but the restaurant has a very nice view out over the Avon River. Our only negative would be that we found the pub/restaurant a bit expensive for dinner and drinks.

We spent one night at this hotel. When we checked in we were given directions to our room number and after 5 minutes searching went back to reception to be told the room number is not on the room only a name. The room itself was very small. There was a long hair in the bathroom sink and mould in the shower. We ate in the restaurant which was quite nice.
