“A Misty Time”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

This was a last minute booking made through the internet. The booking was handled professionally. The reception desk was welcoming, knowledgeable as well as being efficient in organizing services and outlining facilities on offer. It was, however, a long trek to the room which I suppose was fitting for an old medieval Inn with a history of extensions. The room was large, clean and well provided with useful furniture although this was rather dated.

The dining room was modern and service good. The menu on offer was suitably varied and well presented. The dining room opened out onto a terrace and river, but thick fog hindered what would have been a good and relaxing view. Thee downside was the price of drinks which were, putting it mildly, rather steep. The up side was good parking facilities within the hotel's curtilage.

The Hotel is in a village just over the river from Salisbury and 10 minutes walk to the old medieval city. The village itself was rather sparse for alternative eating venues.

Stayed here for a 2 night break. Hotel is In a good position to visit Salisbury. A ten minute walk through the Cathedral grounds and you are in the town. From the time we arrived we were made very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We had room 7 which is in the old part of the hotel. Not the best view but very quiet and the room itself was lovely. We ate there both nights and enjoyed the food. Continental breakfast fine for me but cooked selection limited and expensive. It would be better if they offered a choose your own breakfast items selection. View from the restaurant was lovely even though it rained for most of our visit. Thank you yo everyone for making our stay lovely

We stayed two nights here when visiting Salisbury for the first time. Perfect location, a charming stroll across an old bridge to the cathedral and town. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful, everywhere was clean and bright and the food excellent. We had a lovely beamed room in the old part of the hotel which sadly overlooked the road, not the river, but was otherwise fine with a spacious bathroom. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Rose & Crown, our only suggestion would be to find a way to make the restaurant 'cosier' in the evening. There were very few guests eating on the night we ate there and though the food and service were great, it lacked atmosphere. But, all in all, a super find which made our 2 day break in this fab city even more special. The staff should all be commended for their customer skills.

We visited salisbury for the first time and decided to stay one night at the Rose and Crown. The staff were all very friendly, polite and good humoured. The hotel is really convenient for salisbury centre a short and pleasant walk through the cathedral grounds. Continental breakfast was very good and for us was plenty. Will definitely be going back

we have stayed here a few years ago still a nice hotel but the breakfast was better the first time round. We did have some issues with the room but have been assured that these are being addressed, The location on the river is very relaxing withgood views from the dining room. The food is also very good and not too expensive.The wine is another matter I dont mind paying for good wine but to charge £21 for Jack Rabbit wine is expensive where I work we buy it in for £4 a bottle we went for a £24 bottle but the quality was poor. Overall it was a very nice. Decaff tea and coffee was available always a bonus as I alway carry my own as many hotel do not supply it.
Take a alarm clock we booked two but never recieved them. we did not mind anyway as the staff were vere nice and very helpfull

We stayed a couple of days in the modern extension of the hotel, which doesn't have the character and charm of the original parts but is very quiet away from the main area which was hosting a wedding reception on Saturday night.

Nice view of river and cathedral from the room.

Room was spacious, very clean and well equipped.
Nice BIG comfy bed and total blackout curtains.
Radiators certainly do the job, if you turn them on full the room will be too hot.
We didn't eat here so can't comment on the breakfast/food.

Staff seemed pleasant and helpful.

One of the best things about this place is the convenient location, a pleasant 5-10 minute stroll to the cathedral and town and yet with a decent sized car park. On our last day, after checkout, we were allowed to leave the car in the car park until the evening which was very useful.

The shortcut through the cathedral grounds is only possible up to 10pm, at which point they lock the gates, but the alternative route on Exeter St is not much longer.

Room Tip: if you're staying over a weekend and likely to want a quiet early night, then ask for a room in...

We stayed two nights at this charming hotel. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The room was bright, spacious with a very comfortable bed. I often have trouble sleeping in a new bed, but had a fantastic sleep in this one. The riverside location is peaceful and beautiful and a short walk to the city centre. The only quibble I had was the breakfast which was sub-par in comparison with the overall excellent quality of the hotel. Bread was of the generic white sliced variety, staff were reluctant to allow guests to sit near the window, instead placing them in dark corners. And the yogurt was 5 days out of date. However, the average breakfast was an anomaly in an otherwise excellent stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the gardens, river and cathedral.
