“Highly recommend this hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

Five of us went here for our annual 4 day 'jolly'. We had a great time. All the staff were friendly and helpful - they couldn't do enough for us! The hotel itself was clean and well-maintained and our double room was well-furnished and comfortable. Shower was really powerful too. The location was central for the city and for travel links. I can imagine it would be noisy on the weekend, but we were there Monday to Thursday and it was very quiet. Cannot recommend this hotel and the staff too highly - thank you for a great stay.

Just returned from 3 nights at The Cathedral Hotel. We found the hotel facilities to be good and the staff outstanding, from reception to the restaurant and bar. The location is perfect for exploring Salisbury - everywhere is within easy walking distance.
The room was absolutely fine and well equipped with hairdryer, iron and ironing board, safe and plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. Our room was at the back of the hotel so was quiet, but I understand from the hotel website that it can be noisy at weekends.

Room Tip: If you are going to stay at the weekend I suggest you ask for a room at the back of the hotel away f...

Stayed on business. Friendly staff, a good bar that serves food (didn't try any)
And a fantastic location for the city centre. My room was a bit small for a double. I literally opened my door into the bed!! Clean and tidy nonetheless.
Would stay again as price was fair.

We stayed here for one night on a driving trip around England and found the room to be clean and sufficient and the food in the restaurant downstairs was also good. The only issue we encountered was the noise from the street did not allow for a restful nights sleep. Overall decent place to stay just pack your earplugs!

Dear Guest

Thank you for your honest review. I appreciate your comments about the food and the hotel being very good. I am sorry that you did not get a good nights sleep. We have installed secondary glazing that alleviates a lot of the street noise, but at weekends or if the windows are left open, we do inform guests that you may still be able to hear some street noise. We have got rooms on the top floor, were we have had guests tell us they did not need to be informed about the noise, as they could hear nothing. We do reccomend on our website you book for the right experience, during the week quiet and relaxed, at the weekends lively and busy city centre location.

Kind Regards
The Cathedral Hotel Team

The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Salisbury so historical buildings, shops, pubs and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. The Hotel looks recently refurbished and our double room was nicely decorated and equipped with additional items like a safe, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. The Hotel advises it is noisy at weekends because it runs a disco on the ground floor and the earplugs in the room were appreciated. All of the staff were very efficient and friendly and did their utmost to rectify any adverse situations. The breakfasts were especially good. I used the Public parking in Brown street 70 yards away which is for a maximum of 3 hours then becomes Free after 6pm. so if you check in after 3pm you wont have to move your car, although I believe there is a 24 hour car park a little further away.
When I return to Salisbury I will have no hesitation in booking this hotel again.

Room Tip: Higher rooms may be quieter if you are not taking part in the ground floor disco at weekends. A lift...

his hotel has been repainted, recarpeted and generally updated. The rooms are fine, a little utilitarian perhaps, but comfortable. In a good central position, and the multistory carpark at Culver St is a good place to leave the car for 24 hours. The hotel did tell us about late bars, and the smokers congregate outside at night, and this could be a problem. However, the hotel also provides ear plugs, and this was not a great problem. There was a mysterious night time drone which came and went on one night (mostly came) which was a bit intrusive. Sounded like an extractor fan. The hotel was very sorry, ad promised to investigate.
All the staff here were very helpful, and it was a very happy stay.; Clean, good value, and happy atmosphere. I liked it.

Room Tip: Ask for a third floor room. There is a lift.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple nights whilst visiting family in Salisbury. The staff we very welcoming and very accomodating. We had a baby with us and whilst we had to bring our own cot bed we were given a large enough room that it didnt feel at all cramped. The shower was AMAZING...very powerful and it was by far the best shower I've had in an English hotel. The breakfast was great and even though it's located in the center of town we didnt hear any noise. Would defintely stay there agan.
