I have stayed here several times on business in the area, and I plan to take my family here when we come through for leisure. The rooms are comfortable, the staff is friendly, and the breakfast is spectacular. Inspired by the great breakfast, we ate dinner there one night as well, and we were not disappointed. I greatly enjoyed being...

Minutes from the cathedral and shops, this is a warm and friendly B&B in a beautiful building. Rooms (we had an Executive room) are cosy and really tastefully presented. Standing bath was huge - best bathroom I have had in a hotel anywhere. South African-inspired menu is a dream!

I visited with a group of workmates in the week before Christmas. I expected the place be packed but is was not and there was a very pleasant unrushed atmosphere, I had booked and was promptly shown to my table. The waiting staff were friendly and attentive. The food was quickly delivered and both starters and mains were very tasty...

Went with work colleagues for a late christmas lunch. I ordered the Rump Steak, with French Fries, the meal was absolutely delicous, best steak i have ever had. The staff were very attentive and were warm and friendly. To cap it off the sweets were superb. I cannot wait to visit again.

Upon arriving at the Chapter House from Heathrow we were immediately greeted and taken to our room in the annex of this quaint old place. Jill was welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed a lovely lunch and that night had dinner there as well. Since i don't eat fried fish the chef prepared a delicious baked cod with fresh vegetable and...

The hotel was very accomodating. We took our 11 month old baby. All of the staff were freindly and interactive with our little girl. The food was amazing. The steak here was the best steak either myself or my husband have eaten. I would definitely recommend a visit!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of historic Salisbury, The Chapter House comprises a cosy steakhouse restaurant, friendly pub and 17 comfortable letting rooms. It lies within easy reach of some of Southern England's most important landmarks. The stone for the Salisbury Cathedral, a mere five minute walk away, was cut in what is now the restaurant, making the hotel's initial construction almost 800 years old. Some of the original stone and ironwork is still left exposed inside the property. The 17 boutique en-suite rooms are all unique and quirky, some with original panelling and fireplaces and all with fluffy goose down duvets, Egyptian cotton linen, luxurious H2K toiletries and flatscreen TVs. The Chapter House boasts a bustling restaurant and grillhouse where flame grilled steaks, a la carte dining and hearty pub food are served in an ambient environment. The perfect base when visiting Wiltshire's historic sites, The Chapter House is also an ideal stop over en route to the coast or as a home-from-home option when on a business trip. ... more   less
