Salisbury Hotels and Accommodation
(Salisbury, Wiltshire, England, UK)
Very much a city for sightseeing and shopping, Salisbury enjoys a healthy accommodation scene, with hotels to suit most budgets. Since Salisbury Cathedral features the highest spire in the United Kingdom, numerous city hotels come with rooftop views of the spire.
Hotels in the city centre are understandably the most expensive and a number of centrally located pubs, inns and guest houses provide more favourable lodging rates. Alternatively, B&Bs just outside of Salisbury are noticeably cheaper, and towns such as Breamore and Fordingbridge are worth considering, both of which lie to the south. To the north of the city, the neighbouring villages of Quidhampton, Winterbourne and Woodford are particularly close and offer cheap accommodation with good access to Stonehenge and the stones of Avebury.
Salisbury is a busy city throughout the year and the main tourist season runs roughly from April to September. Guest houses and B&Bs within the city environs are at their most plentiful along Castle Road, which is a continuation of the A345 / Castle Street. To the east of the surrounding Ring Road, the Salisbury YHA Hostel on Milford Hill is within easy walking distance of the city centre, and this attractive listed building is surrounded by pleasant gardens, suiting budget travellers.
For a real taste of luxury accommodation in Salisbury, the White Hart Hotel on St. John Street will certainly not disappoint and is to be found alongside the Cathedral Close. Tourists who prefer staying at chain hotels will likely favour the Best Western Red Lion on Milford Street, which features its very own award-winning restaurant. Located on the southerly outskirts of Salisbury, the Grasmere House Hotel on Harnham Road is packed with Victorian character and boasts an especially tranquil setting, near to the Wiltshire countryside.
