Best Western Red Lion Hotel
Ranked #10 of 16 Hotels in Salisbury
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We stayed here on a business trip and found it to be one of Best Western's best! It's a collection of historic buildings sympathetically decorated and very comfortable. The public areas consist of the restautant/conservatory, lounge and bar. The rooms we had were traditionally decorated in keeping with the age of the building and all perfectly adequate. The lounge is fun with clocks, barometers various other curious machines and a fine old carved fireplace. The beer's good, we didn't eat in the restaurant but judging by the quality of the breakfast it will be good. All the staff we encountered were great.

Room Tip: Might be noisy on the front as it's in the middle of the town.

My husband & I stayed in this hotel in 2000, fell in love with the hotel & the hospitality! We loved Salisbury so much, that we ended up moving here!
We visit the hotel very often & can't say a bad word about it.
Lovely, warm, clean & welcoming. Every time we visit!
We would recommend it to everyone!

We loved this hotel, the staff are very professional and polite. Wonderful rooms with the little touch of Rory the Lion sitting on your bed. Great breakfast in the morning, it is so good to get a decent poached egg - great selections for breakfast. We had a minor problem with breakfast and it was immediately replaced and refunded - amazing

In the afternoon we sat in the lounge area, read a complimentary newspaper and truly relaxed with tea and cake.

The red Lion is a beautiful old hotel right in the centre of the city. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, the public rooms are beautiful and welcoming and all the staff are friendly and helpful. It is a real 'home from home' and we will certainly return.

Room Tip: All our rooms were quiet and comfortable.

This is what a hotel should be. Welcoming, busy and warm. Fantastic position and a very attractive courtyard. Comfortable rooms and good service. My third hotel this week - and the runaway winner!

The Red Lion is really well positioned in the heart of Salisbury. Its what you'd expect from and old English hotel. Room was comfortable clean - old fashioned but nice.
The bar area was very good and the staff were very helpful.
I didn't eat there but the restaurant was busy.

Overall - great old fashioned Hotel.

Another unexpected stay in a place we hadn't planned on staying in. Had a flat on the rental car which came without a spare. Towed into Salisbury but were told the tire couldn't be repaired until the next day. As we had an open agenda, we booked ourselves in the Best Western. The hotel has some deep roots (read it is an old building). Our room was comfortable if not unique in shape and size. Had a fireplace but we hit England in a heat way. Enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Try for a courtyard room
