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.
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.
We have been going to NYE events for 20 years, Red Lion Salisbury is the best yet, a friendly helpful welcome, spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. Dinner was outstanding each and every course was superbly cooked and the service was excellent. Entertainment was great and midnight Champagne finished the evening off well. Breakfast was excellent with a great selection for all tastes and an unhurried checkout allowed us enjoy Salisbury for an hour or so.
Great team, I was staying alone this Christmas on a family visit, team were very welcoming and caring. I Travel a lot so I need to ensure efficient care and handling which the Red Lion team did so well.

Third year in a row at the Red Lion for our work team Christmas meal as previous years the three course meal was great tasting and good portions, staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere warm and festive. What more can you ask for?
Work’s Christmas meal
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.
