I had the pleasure of traveling to Salisbury for a 3 day business trip. It was only a 15min walk from the train station, and I was warmly greeted at the Cathedral Hotel located in the heart of Salisbury. Although on first glance the decor looked slightly tired, the staff more than made up for it by engaging and making... More

This hotel is ideally situated in the beautiful city of Salisbury and the room was comfortable and well-furnished. The main thing to recommend it is the flawless helpfulness of the hotel staff. The breakfasts are freshly made to order.

I was surprised to see that Trip Advisor had a decent ranking for this hotel which I found to be a very 2 star place. Nothing special, average, or tired would describe this hotel.

Our room was very nice with a spotless en suite . the Cathedral Hotel is very central ,but i would describe it more as a pub with rooms than a hotel.
