A bit disappointed as the photos looked much better than the reality. Lovely staff but dated and tired decor. Ideally located for centre of Salisbury. Evening meal was included in the room rate but was not up to much, breakfast was ok though.

My wife and I stayed at the Cathedral Hotel for eight days for the summer solstice of 2014. The rooms are adequate, clean, and the location is ideal to both bus stops and the train station for day trips to Stonehenge, Bath, and Portsmouth. The room included complimentary full breakfast, indoors or outdoors, and a tasty full menu for lunch...

Dear Gerald H Thank you for staying with us last year.

One of the most impressive things about this hotel was the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff. As first impressions count it was obvious that they wanted to make our stay pleasant. We had some difficulty in finding a long term car park but a short call to reception while driving round the town sorted that straight away. The room...

Booked into the Cathedral Hotel last week (Saturday into Sunday). Booking into the reception was no problem with the now-usual east European staff on hand! Found them to be courteous and helpful. The single room was clean, modern and well planned with an en-suite. Furniture and fittings were modern and not at all "tired" or well used; it's obvious that...

Me and my partner live in Devizes (moved from Amesbury), but we still like to visit the Salisbury nightlife once in a while (however, a taxi to/from would mean re-mortgaging our house). So we decided to treat ourselves to a Sat night away in a hotel, and we chose the Cathedral. Double room and breakfast for £80. Turns out, this...
