Wonderful, quirky hotel with a fabulous courtyard but the parking..........

Great location in the centre of Salisbury. We stayed midweek (Monday to Thursday) so it was fairly quiet. Breakfast was great, cooked to order and the one evening meal we had here was really good but,... more

Do not stay on Fridays and Saturdays. Let the buyer beware!

Dear Beertechtravel, Please accept my apologies we did not fully meet your expectations during your visit with us. Our gated car park only has seven car parking spaces which are sold on a first come first serve basis and I am sorry you felt Brown Street car park was not suitable for your needs. I can only apologize for the noise from outside the hotel disturbing your visit with us. Once again, please accept my apologies for not fully meeting your expectations during your visit with us. Sincerely, William W.
