We stayed at 2 Park Lane for an overnight stop en route to a friend’s house in Dorset. We wanted to be within walking distance of Salisbury so we didn’t need to use the car.
We originally found it difficult to find the house as our sat nav didn’t recognise Park Lane as it is a private road but once we were in the vicinity we spotted the road sign and then found the house. The turn into the car park is a little tight if you have a large car but there is enough parking at the back for everyone. The house itself is I think Victorian with some lovely original features.
We were greeted by the owner (Nat) who gave us a map of Salisbury and showed us the route to walk into town which is through the park next door to the house and then along the river. This was very pleasant and took about 25 minutes to the main square and a little longer to the cathedral. I’m not sure I would like to do the walk back after dark though but there is the option of returning on the main road.
Our room (No 2) was very nice with a comfy bed, TV and tea/coffee making facilities and very clean. The bathroom was a good size with a shower over the bath. Ample towels and toiletries were provided. However, this room overlooked the main road and even though the house is set back a little from the road we did experience traffic noise as we needed the window open due to it being a warm night.
Breakfast is ordered the night before and you are asked to provide an approximate time when you would like to eat. The owner (Helen) was there to greet us and fetched us tea and coffee. You help yourself to juice, toast etc and if a cooked breakfast has been ordered this then follows soon afterwards as it is freshly cooked.
We were able to leave our car in the car park after we checked out which was appreciated and gave us the morning for some more sightseeing.
We would definitely recommend 2 Park Lane for a short stay but if we stayed again would ask for a room at the back of the house if possible.
