Incredibly dated room, not at all in line with the marketing photos used and does not warrant the money charged. Shower was a struggle to even get wet pressure is so low. Staff were very helpful so that was the saving grace

good central position

Cons: Help with luggage as it is a bit of a rabbit warren.
Had a good stay, but had to ask reception to connect the phone and heated towel rail. Took lift to 2nd floor then found I had to struggle up further narrow stairs with my luggage, as my room was in the attic. Thought the restaurant menu expensive and not exciting. Noticed it was quite empty in the evenings.

Great location

The Red Lion used to be the place to stay in Salisbury. It has one of the best locations in the city and has a beautiful courtyard. Having been out of the area for many years I decided this was the place to stay. Sadly the hotel looked tired and urgently needs some serious investment. New beds, bedding, pillows etc would not go amiss. Come on Best Western!!

Historic stay in Salisbury

Went shopping. Went out for a meal.We had afternoon tea in the lounge area. Very well priced. Quick efficient service. Very historic and generally well kept. Rooms spacious and airy. Liked the added touch of the cuddly Lion in each room! Checking out a bit of a problem as we were presented with the wrong amount on our room bill. Apart from this a great stay.

Altes verwinkeltes Haus

3 Nächte im Red Lion Hotel verbracht.. Die Lage ist fantastisch und das Essen im Restaurant Vine ist empfehlenswert. Wer Plüsch und ein traditionelles Ambiente schätzt, kommt hier auf die Rechnung.
