B&B that is also a Christian retreat. However, they also give heathens like me a warm welcome. Located within easy walking distance of Salisbury town centre. There is gated, off-road parking and a warm welcome awaits you from the friendly staff. Room was beautiful, well equipped and with a good en-suite with an effective shower. Very comfortable bed. The breakfast...

We stayed here for a night only. The best thing about this guesthouse is the location - literally about 10 min walk to the center. The rooms though looking clean, smell of old furniture. However, this was not the worst part - our toilet did not flush and stank! Would not come back at all. Bear in mind that they...

Secure free car parking is the best point. The decoration is 1970s and everything is tired. However it's clean, the staff were friendly. Don't get too excited over the breakfast, tinned grapefruit, budget cereals and tinned mushrooms. Paying for wi-fi also wrangled.

Thank you for your feedback. The decoration has all been done in the last 3 years and the cereals at breakfast are all main brands e.g. Kellogg's. We never use tinned mushrooms only fresh but the grapefruit is tinned. I hope you enjoyed your stay and received value for money. Our parking alone saves our guests £7 a day when...

:-( awful place very dated , noisy . The car parking is poor , for the cost the place certainly isn't worth it for a twin room at £82-50 to then charge you 50p as paying with a debit card. Then to discover via email they have charged me £8-25 for the reservation :-( I now wish I booked in...

Sorry you were not happy with your stay. You stayed in our newly refurbished room facing onto the car park which is usually one of our quietest. The car park can be full if all our rooms are booked but this gives security and saves on considerable parking costs locally.

We had a lovely stay at this guesthouse. The rooms were clean, very friendly staff who went out of their way to help you, and a great breakfast! Also it is in walking distance to Salisbury Cathedral and the old town of Salisbury.

As an older woman on my own I was encouraged by the fact that there is an electronic gate to get into the guest house. Things got even better when I booked in as my welcome was so friendly and I was told and shown everything I needed to know - even making sure I knew how to punch in...

My husband, our daughter and I, had the pleasure of staying here last weekend. I'm in a wheelchair and the property was wheelchair accessible which is fab!

Nicely hidden away from main street, almost missed it. Warm welcome, uncomplicated approach, helpful, safe for leaving a car there anytime. Good breakfast, and no problem with a predominantly German breakfast chatter when I was there.

“Well tucked away just off the ring-road. Due to the odd road local layout, it takes a little bit of finding, but is well worth the effort.”
