Built over 800 years ago, the Red Lion is a unique, 13th Century hotel located in central Salisbury, still retaining many of the original architectural details and features associated with 13th Century design. With formal and casual dining available, a choice of lounges and a range of 60 feature bedrooms to choose from, the Red Lion hotel is as much of an attraction in Salisbury, as the stunning cathedral that stands at the heart of this historic British city.
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.
Stayed here for the first time. Great, central location for cathedral, local shopping facilities et al, superb food in the restaurant and the staff were very helpful, attentive and friendly. Very interesting and historic old hotel.
Excellent food, friendly staff
Delightful meal at the Restaurant. Wonderful selection as we were bored with traditional pub food. Magic outdoor garden setting. Service was excellent. Great management. Recommend you eat and drink here.
