Came in for a family birthday as I've been several times before and know the pub is very nice. The food was excellent and our waiter Luke made sure we had everything we needed and was very friendly. Definitely will be coming back again with family or friends in the future.

A lovely setting. Easy to get to. Plenty of parking next door, staff were very helpful. We had arrived 10 minutes before restaurant closing and staff made sure we had ordered before closing the kitchen. Our room was the very top floor. Only steps to the top but they were not too steep as my amputee husband on crutches was...

Great location and view, room comfortable and shower good. Breakfast excellent and the service very friendly. Only potential problem was the noise from the bar but that finished by 11.00 and the hotel kindly provide ear plugs.

The best thing about this hotel is the view and the sound of the river outside the room. The accompanying is tired and simple but not terrible, and the same could be said for the pub. Menu is overpriced for such straight forward food but generally it's an ok place to stay. Staff lack warmth and sincerity but we're trying...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Mill Hotel is a 15th century building with features dating back to 1250. From its early ecclesiastical beginnings, it was transformed in the 16th century to a paper mill. The hotel is in the most tranquil location of Harnham Meadows. However, the shopping and tourist district of Salisbury City centre is a mere 10 minute walk. The paved footpath takes you through the meadows which boast the fantastic view of the Cathedral that was voted 'Best View in Britain' in a Country Life poll. It was also made famous in John Constable's classic painting 'Salisbury Cathedral'. (This camera shot alone will make your visit worthwhile.) The hotel is Grade 1 listed in parts and stands in a most peaceful and stunning location above 3 mill runs off of the River Nadder. This really is a countryside escape, just a stone's throw from the ancient city. Our traditional old English bar with low beams, stone floors and open fires, is a step back in time. A little piece of old England that has been preserved for your enjoyment. You can sample the best cask ales, a great selection of wine and food and chat to the locals whilst enjoying the best welcome and hospitality that Wiltshire has to offer. The restaurant is set in the oldest part of the hotel and sits above a mill run which is visible through a viewing panel. The ever present hum of the rushing waters and the large open fireplace, make it one of the best places to enjoy perfectly English food that's been freshly prepared by our chefs for your pleasure. When the weather permits, our restaurant and bar may be outdone by our fantastic garden setting for the best place to enjoy a cool beer, a glass of wine or a great meal. We have 11 en-suite bedrooms set over 3 floors. (No lift available, however, we will of course help you with your bags if needed.) The historic staircase leads you up to the narrow corridors of the newer part of the building, a mere 300 years old. We are sure you will find the views from all our bedrooms are impressive, whether it's the Harnham hills, the River Nadder or over our fabulous gardens set on either side of the mill run, where every seat has a waterside view! The hotel bar, restaurant and bedrooms are undergoing refurbishment during Autumn 2014 and the garden will be completed in March 2015. This is being done with the maximum respect for our present hotel, bar and restaurant visitors and will enhance this already great experience. ... more   less
