We picked this place as it looked nice on the web, good value for money and at walking distance from the city centre. Whilst it was all of this, there was a steep hill the last bit which made it heavy walking back after an evening pub meal :))) But apart from that, this place is great - especially if you have a car as they have their own parking space and you don't have that hill to worry about. It is in a nice and quiet area, yet you are in the Market Place in less than ten minutes walk. So why not a higher rating? Well...perhaps I found the place a bit impersonal. Normally when you stay in a B&B you almost make friends with the owners but here there was that certain distance more associated with a hotel, despite them being a family. I also found the toilet cramped as it was squeezed in next to the bath tub, and that English lack of hot water sometimes. Finally we had a double bed but had to share duvet and this is something I'm particular with since I hate to wake up pulling and tugging at my share of it! Apart from this, the place was lovely. The house has been extended with a corridor style annex at the back where the old stables have been converted, but if you want a cathedral view (see intro page) you need to ask for another part of the house. Rooms are nice and clean and the TV includes the major UK channels only, which is more than enough for me. Breakfast is a lovely English (or veggie) with a selection of buffet cereals, yoghurts and juices. There is a lounge where you can surf or check your mail at a pay-per-half-hour which is reasonable. There are also games, papers and a small library here. The owners have just been adopted by a lovely cat which is quite old so that's probably why it's not on their website but it could be good to know if you're allergic even if it is of course never in the rooms.
Unique Quality: Nice house and I liked the way it was organised with reasonable breakfast times and so on. You can also buy beer and wine in reception before 21.00.
Directions: From Market Place, keep right and find Milford Street. Follow this under a road bridge. Then turn almost opposite the Youth Hostel.
Really nice, large B&B in a quiet area, yet within about a 10 min walking distance of downtown. Has a small parking lot, or you can park on the street. We had quite a large room and a decent sized bathroom.
The front of the house is original 19th century Victorian but a large part on the back is where horses and a coach were housed and now renovated into bedrooms, that's where our room was situated with a view of the garden.
A traditional full English breakfast is enjoyed in a bright, window filled room which looks out onto the garden.
We paid £55 a night for a twin room with ensuite.
Unique Quality: If you fancy a four poster bed let them know when booking and one might be available. There are also rooms with views of Salisbury Cathedral. There are 23 different bedrooms at the bed and breakfast.
There is a licensed bar if you wish to have a drink though we did our drinking in town.
