A total of some 18 retired naval officers and their wives spent two nights - for some of us - one night for the rest - at the Rose and Crown, the first evening for a most especially arranged Grand Diamond Jubilee Gala Buffet! The whole event was a great success and the hotel staff really excelled themselves to make our stay and the Gala Buffet, especially, both thoroughly enjoyable - and definitely memorable! Everyone was immaculately polite and helpful ; the rooms are very comfortable - the food is fine - we had especially arranged kippers for breakfast - and the location of the hotel is simply wonderful - with the River Avon racing by the bounds of the hotel with sundry flotillas of ducks and geese and swans borne past by the racing water and the magnificent spire of the cathedral in the background! It was terrific - as it always is!

Great rooms large, clean and very well serviced. lovely staff especially Sharon on reception, terrific views from back of the hotel overlooking the River Avon, Salisbury Cathedral. We were allowed to have Deliveroo from the local fish shop as I was physically unable to go out when we arrived. Very reasonable for a 4* hotel.

Great location, close to the centre and with parking. All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. Our room was in the newer part of the hotel with a view over the river Avon to the Cathedral. It had plenty of space and a comfortable bed. Breakfast offered everything you could want , and the cooked offering was very good, plenty of choice and decent quality ingredients. There was also a good choice of fruit and cereals. The only downside to breakfast was the temperamental coffee machine , it produced decent coffee but wasn’t the speediest, fortunately the breakfast room wasn’t busy. The hotel offer a guide to breakfast times, indicating when it might be less busy. They offer gloves to customers at the buffet offering to minimise hand contact, it’s a very good idea but several people we saw were not making use of this service. Had dinner in the hotel on 2 occasions and the food quality was good, and so was the service. All in all a great base for exploring Salisbury and the surrounding are.

Dear Jacqueline, Thank you for your lovely 5-Star review. We are so pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us and all the hotel has to offer our guests. I apologise that our coffee machine at breakfast was being 'temperamental'. We have had issues with the machine as of late and the company who supply it are looking at replacing the machine for an updated version, however, as with most things at present, are experiencing supply chain issues. We are however hopeful that the new machine will be with us before Christmas. I do hope we can have the opportunity to welcome you back for the same great experience on your next visit to Salisbury.

We stayed 2 nights over the weekend 12 & 13 November through Great Little Breaks. Part of the package was breakfast, £25 allowance ea towards dinner both nights and packed lunch for one day. The Hotel is nice, we stayed in the older part which was quirky. Our room was nice and clean. The Hotel is in a great location. We found all of the staff to be polite and helpful. The downside for us was the food, the cooked breakfast in the morning was hardly warm, there was only one hot drinks machine and it took forever with having to wait for the water to heat. They need at least another machine. We had dinner in the Restaurant the first evening, we had a duck tart as a starter which was small and i think expensive for what it was, it was beautifully presented but difficult to eat on a slate slab, it was taste wise ok. My Husband had the Mongolian Beef which came with rice but no sauce and the beef was tough and bland. I had chicken roulade which was ok. We did hear one of the staff saying it was a new menu so maybe the Chef was just getting to grips with it. Personally for us we were not fans of the menu, we ate elsewhere on the second night. However, the packed lunch supplied was great, sandwiches tasty, fruit, drink, cereal bar and yogurt was also provided - although no spoons to eat the yogurt with. We would defo stay at this hotel again but maybe just on a bed and breakfast basis.

Dear Nikki and Del, Thank you for providing your review for your recent stay at the hotel. All guest reviews offer us an opportunity to further improve what we do here at the Rose & Crown. As you rightly point out our dinner menu was revised on the first day of your visit, I am disappointed that you are not fans of the offering. I will pass your comments on our new menu onto our kitchen team with a view to improving our food standards. I am pleased you will consider staying with us again in the future, and I do hope you will give the restaurant a second chance to win your approval on your next visit.

The kids folding bed was rickety to the point of dangerous, held together with masking tape and peaked in the middle like a mountain (I wish this was an exaggeration.) The mattress was two, thin, garden bench type seat-pads put together and you could still feel each individual slate. My daughter is 10 and 140cm and found the bed very uncomfortable as it swayed with her every movement. Much more comfortable and safe to put the mattress pads on the floor for two nights as we ended up doing. No excuse really. The bed was clearly broken and should have been disposed of. And this was a bed we had to ask them for, because it wasn't there on arrival, despite booking for double with a child's bed. Now I understand why - because they didn't have a safe bed available, this was probably retrieved from the skip. Perhaps we could have caused a fuss and asked for another bed but a.) The mattress pads were not adequate padding for this kind of bed, broken or not. b.)I'm not hotel a health and safety officer, they should know without a lecture from me that the bed was broken, my 10 year old worked that out immediately. They also only provided towels for 2 not 3 people, but to be fair that's a minor complaint. Honestly, I would find a different hotel if you are going as a family. At least take an inflatable mattress and sleeping bag instead of relying on the hotel. Rooms are a bit tired but have all you need and they are a good size and clean. The numerous rips in the voiles gave the wrong impression though, and so cheap and easy to fix. The staff were friendly, everything seemed clean and the hotel is a pretty, short walk through the cathedral grounds to town. Ample parking too. Breakfast is not great. Continental breakfast buffet wasn't exactly plentiful but what was there was nice enough. First morning the cooked breakfast took a fair while to arrive, it was good overall but the beans were cheap and unpleasant. Second morning cooked breakfast (less the beans) still hadn't arrived 50 minutes after ordering and I had to leave hungry as I had a schedule to keep. If this had been a cheap room I'd have been a lot more tolerant but when spending in excess of £100 per night, I expect a lot better. Hotel did not inquire into our level of satisfaction on checking out, so I didn't volunteer the information. I guess because a lot of people probably complained about the slow breakfast that day. Why would reception ask for trouble eh?

Dear Squirrelmonkey, Please accept my sincere apologies that you did not fully enjoy your stay at the hotel. I have requested that both the housekeeping and maintenance teams do a full review of all the hotel's extra beds to ensure they are all in good working order. My apologies that the bed placed in your bedroom was not suitable. Whilst I understand your not wishing to 'cause a fuss' I do wish you had brought this issue to our attention as we would have sourced a solution for you during your stay. I am sorry that the hotels' breakfast offering did not live up to your expectations. We had a number of issues back of house over the course of your stay directly effecting our ability to serve breakfast in our usual timely manner. I'm sure this is little consolation but I am happy to report these have now been rectified and are looking to further improve our breakfast offer for future guests. The hotel's Reception team should be enquiring into how each guests' stay was upon departure, I apologise if this was not the case. I do hope you will consider a return visit in the future so we may have the opportunity to provide you with a superior experience.
