“Excellent value”
Reviewed 2 March 2009

Picked this one from other's reviews. When checking rates found that booking an evening meal in the rate was much cheaper than just B&B so went for this option for 3 nights. Expected dull food with little choice but was pleasantly surprised. Whilst we did not get the full menu choice, there was enough to be interesting, & there was a different menu each night. Cerainly quality and quantity were not sacrificed.
Has a downstairs room in the new part of the hotel that was larger that usual and the only minor complaint was heavy feet upstairs (first night only - Thursday) and loud TV next door (again Thursday only). Seems like when the business people left for the weekend the remaining couples were much more considerate!
A potentially more serious problem was a continuously running toilet after first use (perhaps a common complaint as the receptionist did not seem surprised). However, he could not fix it this time but a plumber was called and it was fixed whist we had dinner. It's the way a hotel reacts to and solves problems like this that makes them stand out.
Overall a wonderful location with great food and service.

Just returned from a week-end break staying at this hotel. The check-in was quick and informative. We stayed in one of the recently refurbished rooms. Everything was spottlessly clean. The room was very cosy, plenty of hot water and views over the river added to our pleasant stay. We walked into the centre of Salisbury via the Cathedral grounds which took us approx. 10 minutes. Breakfast was of high quality served in the Conservatory which too overlooked the river.

The Legacy Rose & Crown is clean, quiet, comfortable and within a 10-minute walk of the town center. That would be good enough, but in addition it was in a beautiful location on the river and had a very good restaurant.

We stayed in the newer section of the hotel, and were slightly disappointed not to be in the older part. However that soon passed given the comfort, size and amenities of the rooms.

I can't recommend it highly enough - it was definitely the best hotel we stayed in during our trip.

The Legacy Rose and Crown is an absolutely georgous hotel! First off, we got lost for an hour thanks to our google map, and when I called the hotel for directions the receptionist gave us step by step directions from where we were. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and friendly, and told the best route to Salisbury Cathedral (a pleasant, picturesque 5 minute walk).

When we got to the room (room 5 the Heath Suite) we were dumbfounded. Stepping into the room, it was as if we walked into history. The room was a very well preserved historic site, from the high ceiling to the four poster bed. As a history teacher, I was in seventh heaven!

The hotel pub is a warm cozy enclave off the reception area, and was staffed by a genuinely warm and friendly young lady. A plus was that when we checked in the receptionist who had just finished her shift had a dead battery in her car, so we gave her a jump start, and she had a bar tab set up for us!

The food at the hotel is lovely. The pub menu selections are few, but classy and delicious. The full English breakfast in the beautiful patio area was fabulous...This was the best English hotel we have ever stayed in, and only 80pounds!

  • Liked — Very friendly and courteous staff, excellent location, comfort.
  • Disliked — Using a google map to find it!

To arrive at someplace charging £80 for B & B , and be told that the hotel wi-fi was not working, did not impress.
Neither did the lipstick stains left on the "cleaned" cup in the bedroom.
The best thing was the Thai restaurant half a mile away en-route to Salisbury centre.
Unlike others, I didn't get a view of the river, just the terrace across the road.
Go back ? I doubt it !

This hotel should be listed under Salisbury as it is a 15 minute walk through the lovely old part of Salisbury to the City centre.

This old inn has recently undergone refurbishment and our room (ground floor in modern extension) was very spacious with a delightful outlook over the hotel gardens gardens and the River Avon with meadows and the cathedral spire beyond.

The service was fine, a minor cleaning complaint we made was dealt with efficiently. Furnishings good and a flatscreen tv. Bathroom good.

The modern bedroom block is in an interesting curved shape. The only criticism we have is that the upper floor seemed to be Brit type suspeneded timber rather than continental solid concrete. The guest in the room above us seemed to find the one squeaky board and walk about on it for an hour at a time.

Breakfast was the usual - fine, though staff a bit pressed and finishes by 9.30 am.

Reviewed 22 August 2008

We got a great deal via Last minute and had a great stay at the rose and crown. it's a lovely 10 minute walk into the centre of Salisbury past the river and cathedral so it was a lovely and quiet location but not inconvenient. Our room opened out onto a lovely garden with views of the river and quacking ducks. The room wasn't well sound-proofed - we could hear everything going on in the hallway outside and also from a function room across the garden (very early 7.00am meeting!!). There was also no hotel info in the room which i normally look for straight away - ie breakfast times, bar opening times, checkout and everything. but these were minor grievances from a lovely stay at a lovely hotel that seemed to blend modern/smart rooms with a well preserved historical building.
