The Red Lion Hotel Salisbury is one of the most historic places to visit in Wiltshire. Built over 800 years ago, we’re Europe’s oldest purpose-built hotel. We’re certainly one of the most unique hotels in Salisbury city centre, if not the whole of Wiltshire. If you’re looking for hotels near Stonehenge, The Red Lion Hotel is just a short drive away. We’re also a five minute walk from Salisbury Cathedral, making us the ideal place to stay for anyone looking to visit Salisbury for some culture.
Our romantic hotel is able to accommodate weddings of 60-120 guests and is a licensed venue, making it the perfect wedding venue in Salisbury. With 60 feature bedrooms to choose from, the most famous afternoon tea in Salisbury and a traditional restaurant and bar that’s been serving guests and local residents for eight centuries, we’re the perfect place to stay in Salisbury. Or if you’re just visiting Salisbury on a day trip, come and see us for some culture and a glimpse back in history.
Visited Salisbury for the first time for one night only and felt very comfortable staying at the best western red lion hotel. The service was excellent, staff very friendly and patient, the room facilities was great, very clean, comfy and I had no problems with operating amenities within it. The location was perfect within good access to the train station, town centre and main town sights.
Great for first time and one stay
We liked our stay in this hotel. Well located (walking distance from the cathedral and the Market Place), very friendly and helpful staff, the building is charming, and breakfast (included) is excellent. It’s a typical British country hotel, the building is old, but because of that has a kind of magic. Our bedroom and bathroom were small but comfy. No elevator (lift). It has parking, 15 pounds the night. Free wifi. The restaurant offers nice food, we had a very good pulled pork sandwich. Portions are generous. Breakfast as I said is very good, a buffet with different options (a lot of healthy ones). We really enjoy our stay.
Really lovely stay. Very friendly, helpful staff. Lovely hot chocolate sitting in front of an open fire. Food was great. Rooms very clean. Will definitely be back again and would recommend. 5 minutes walk to all shopping centres, cathedral etc.
Each Christmas my wife and I choose Salisbury to complete our present shopping and always make it an overnight visit from Friday to Saturday. Thus the Xmas market, regular huge Saturday market and fantastic shops are combined to magnify our experience. To make this a memorable event we always book way ahead to ensure we have a room and parking spot at the Red Lion. This is an ancient and historic establishment which offers the very best of accommodation and as was so this time, wonderful food. There it is, atmosphere convenience and excellence, what more do you want?
Another year has gone.
This hotel maintains the original decor and feel of an old English Inn. This is not your typical Best Western. The room was well appointed and the staff very responsive. I hope we can stay there again.
