Positive Reviews

Excellent location

The Best Western Red Lion sits right in the heart of Salisbury’s historic centre, so you’ll find that plenty of the city’s attractions are right on your doorstep There’s little need to hop in the car unless you want to visit further afield attractions such as Stonehenge.

Full of character and charm

As you might expect from a property that dates back to 1220, this hotel oozes character and charm Antique furnishings are one of the highlights, but you’ll literally notice history at every turn One of the few modern aspects of this hotel is the great service.

Gorgeous rooms

Guests describe the rooms here as spacious, comfortable and clean - all the things you want from a hotel room Housekeeping does a great job of keeping everything in order during your stay, so you’ll find your room is just as nice when you leave as when you arrive.

Negative Reviews

Not all guests appreciate the renovated lounge

The hotel has recently refurbished its lounge area and repeat guests are definitely not happy with the modernization that has taken place While you won't know the difference if you haven’t been here before, you might have missed seeing something rather special The new look doesn't seem to go with the historic charm of the rest of the property.

Some parking concerns

While this hotel advertises free parking, reviews indicate that you may have trouble getting a space during busier times There are public parking facilities nearby, but these spaces are charged at a daily rate.

Some noise

Not all guests appear to have an issue, but some do complain of excess noise from Milford Street Between people out late in the evening and street cleaners early in the morning, you are left with a fairly short window for sleep.
