This B and B on the south side of Salisbury has a unique style. The accommodation is outside the main house in either a large cabin or in an adjacent building which has been modelled to provide three rooms. Breakfast is a do it yourself job provided from an in room kitchenette equipped with a fridge, kettle. toaster, microwave and provisioned with fresh sliced bread (white and wholemeal), fresh milk, butter, jams and marmalades, cereals and plenty of clean crockery and cutlery to get on with it. This is quite an unusual model for a bed a breakfast and judging by some reviews, is not to everyone's' taste but it worked for us for one night as the sun was shining and we could sit on the lawn with tea and toast and read the morning papers right up until 1030am.
We arrived late but were made welcome. We were allocated room 3 which is a twin and yes, it is small and I think the lack of space would be challenging in the longer term. The beds were clean and comfortable but very low so if you have creaky knees, beware!. The consequences of a long drive were kicking in and we slept comfortably and well. The en suite is also very compact but you can get the basics sorted without the need to linger too long. Given the limited space, Mrs B would have preferred a small dressing table for the morning beautification process but there is nowhere to place one. There are some janitorial bits and pieces needing attention (en suite door and lavatory seat in particular need attention) and the room needs regular doses of good Wiltshire air and a lick of fresh paint.
In summary, if you hanker after space and all the trimmings, then there are plenty of budget hotels and pretentious bed and breakfast establishments in Salisbury - but you will be paying more. One real plus point is that Hillside B and B is right next to the pub and that can't be bad!
