After being recommended The Old Mill Harnham we decided to give it a go on Thursday night. We sat in the restaurant and ordered the lemon sole and steak with a bottle of wine. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was exceptional. I believe the young waitress was called Emily who was very friendly and courteous. We would...

The Old Mill is a very old property, some of it grade 1 listed. It comes with the rickety stairs and uneven floor that you would expect from such antiquity. For me, that just adds to its charm. The views all around, even on a grey February day are lovely. Ducks and swans, running water and the building itself. A...

We went tonight for a valentines dinner, we were treated nicely and shown to our table. We had pre-booked our meal so no need to order, but the complimentary Prosecco was very welcome. Our meal was served very well, hot food on hot plates and absolutely delicious. A very enjoyable evening, we will return.

645richard, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback for us. I apologise that the message about our fish dish of the day was not clear enough, hence the confusion. It is however, great to hear that you (despite the confusion) thoroughly enjoyed your lunch! I will ensure that your kind words are passed on to all team members...

Booked for one night to catch up with a friend for a girly weekend. Staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel had kept its old world charm with original features. The twin bedded room was a good size (although only 4 hangers between 2 people!) and the bathroom had been recently modernised. The beds were very comfortable and had...

We stayed for 3 nights and found the Hotel very comfortable. It is only a 10/15 minute walk to the centre of Salisbury. The Hotel is in a lovely position beside the river and has super gardens which must be great to visit in the summer.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Mill Hotel is a 15th century building with features dating back to 1250. From its early ecclesiastical beginnings, it was transformed in the 16th century to a paper mill. The hotel is in the most tranquil location of Harnham Meadows. However, the shopping and tourist district of Salisbury City centre is a mere 10 minute walk. The paved footpath takes you through the meadows which boast the fantastic view of the Cathedral that was voted 'Best View in Britain' in a Country Life poll. It was also made famous in John Constable's classic painting 'Salisbury Cathedral'. (This camera shot alone will make your visit worthwhile.) The hotel is Grade 1 listed in parts and stands in a most peaceful and stunning location above 3 mill runs off of the River Nadder. This really is a countryside escape, just a stone's throw from the ancient city. Our traditional old English bar with low beams, stone floors and open fires, is a step back in time. A little piece of old England that has been preserved for your enjoyment. You can sample the best cask ales, a great selection of wine and food and chat to the locals whilst enjoying the best welcome and hospitality that Wiltshire has to offer. The restaurant is set in the oldest part of the hotel and sits above a mill run which is visible through a viewing panel. The ever present hum of the rushing waters and the large open fireplace, make it one of the best places to enjoy perfectly English food that's been freshly prepared by our chefs for your pleasure. When the weather permits, our restaurant and bar may be outdone by our fantastic garden setting for the best place to enjoy a cool beer, a glass of wine or a great meal. We have 11 en-suite bedrooms set over 3 floors. (No lift available, however, we will of course help you with your bags if needed.) The historic staircase leads you up to the narrow corridors of the newer part of the building, a mere 300 years old. We are sure you will find the views from all our bedrooms are impressive, whether it's the Harnham hills, the River Nadder or over our fabulous gardens set on either side of the mill run, where every seat has a waterside view! The hotel bar, restaurant and bedrooms are undergoing refurbishment during Autumn 2014 and the garden will be completed in March 2015. This is being done with the maximum respect for our present hotel, bar and restaurant visitors and will enhance this already great experience. ... more   less
