Alabare House
Ranked #33 of 59 Salisbury B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 July 2011

Had no idea what to expect at Alabare House, especially after learning that it is also a Christian retreat centre. However. although there are obvious signs of the Christian faith to be seen, this is also very much a warm and friendly B&B. After negotiating the unexpected gated entrance, we were greated by the tranquility of the place. The house is very well maintained, the rooms spotless and well equiped. The shower room offered a power shower, with ample hot water. Staff are friendly, and the atmosphere seems to encourage interaction between the guests who come from many different countries. Breakfast is a somewhat communal affair and very good. The Cathedral is little more than ten minutes walk and the town centre is even closer, so an ideal location. All-in-all a good find which offers all, and more, that the budget conscious traveller could require.

We were 100% happy with our 2 night stay. Only 5 - 10 minutes walk into Salisbury but so quiet we felt we were in the countryside. Our room was very clean and spacious. Secure parking. Full English breakfast was perfect. Friendly helpful Staff. Shower Gel and Carex hand wash provided. Nice bedlinen and a comfy bed so we slept well. Should be 4 star

The location isn't that great if you have heavy bags to carry around. It's quite a walk from the station. Still, when arriving there is a gate to get through before you reach the house itself. Are you driving there is plenty of parking space. Inside you might be met by the hens who lives in the garden. The room was spatious (but with an undefined odour of something) with an alocated bathroom down the hall. The breakfast was outstanding!

The Alabare guest house is located just outside the centre of Salisbury (it's about a 10 minute walk), the room was cozy and everything in it and the adjoining bathroom looked quite new. There's a lounge/common room where you get breakfast which has an attached conservatory-type area with comfortable leather couches for hanging out. What the web site doesn't mention is that you can get flat-rate Internet for a small one-off payment, which is great when the weather turns ugly.

The Alabare house is a good alternative for those looking to get a wee bit off the usual US-traveler experience. About twenty-five mins from the rail station by foot, the house is located near the ring road but is still quite secluded. Neighbors from down the street had never heard of it - but it is real. Up the road from an intersection, it's entrance is more of a hidden driveway. The rooms are clean and the breakfast was better than the usual UK fare. We walked to town - about 5 mins I several times. There are convenient pubs and numerous restaurants close by. All facilities were working, the minimal staff was pleasant and attentive, and overall great for a base camp.
