This hidden treasure of Salisbury was originally a 13th century coaching inn that offered a warm welcome and convivial atmosphere. Though a few centuries older now, the hospitality and heart of the Best Western Salisbury Red Lion Hotel is stronger than ever. Our elegant and comfortably designed bedrooms will exceed even the highest expectations and our antique filled accommodation means public areas are full of character and charm. Our Vine Restaurant has a rosette to show for its deliciousness, while modern conference facilities have also been sympathetically incorporated to bring businesses the best! Ideally situated in the heart of the city of Salisbury, near its Cathedral, the hotel is a stone's throw from Stonehenge (two miles to be precise), so easy access is a given! Limited on-site parking. Six spaces on a first come first served basis, 15.00 GBP per day. Pre-book directly with hotel. Alternative chargeable parking available nearby, please contact hotel for further details. Enjoy your stay.
