My mom and Aunt and I stayed here for three days. We were in the cozy Sarum room which had three comfy twin beds. The guest house was immaculately clean, the sheets were cool and crisp, we had a fantastic view of the Cathedral from our room. The water was hot with wonderful water pressure. There are things to make... More

There are so many negatives about this property. We didn't get the room we booked (with ensuite) and were led to believe at check-in that all rooms had separate bathrooms. We later found out that ensuite rooms were available. We would never book a room with separate bathroom and in our search for properties for this trip one of the... More

Dear GrandpaEric, We are very sorry that you did not find our Bed&Breakfast adequate. We have different kinds of rooms, some with en suite facilities and some with shared facilities. I believe there has been a problem with your booking, and if you have been assigned a room without bathroom I am sure that we have given you a discounted... More

Going into a gated guest house was a new experience for us, but once we were inside they were greeted warmly, time of breakfast scheduled, shown around the place (breakfast room, bathroom and room) and then was left to it. Was probably one of the smaller rooms in which we stayed on our holiday but was clean, tidy and a... More

It gets all its stars from me for being so nice and ordinary. ideally situated for Salisbury centre, approx. 10 mins walk. Rooms are very basic but clean and homely. Enjoyed the breakfast but not the shared tables. Gated parking for all rooms. Would use again

We had a warm greeting when we arrived & were promptly shown our room, breakfast scheduled & important information to know was received. The rooms were clean & functional with shared bathrooms.

We had to arrive late, but were met by the staff. Food was good. Perhaps a bit overpriced compared with some of our other stays. The squeaky floor was a distraction. Location was a bit hard to find, but was central to where we wanted to visit.

We stayed here for 4 nights in January 2015. Although the room lacked an en suite bathroom, there were 2 bathrooms just across the landing, so that was really no problem. The room was clean, well furnished and had a comfortable double bed. The TV worked properly and had a full range of Freeview channels. There was also a kettle... More

We thank you for your review and are sorry you were so disappointed.
