We stayed for 3 nights and found the Hotel very comfortable. It is only a 10/15 minute walk to the centre of Salisbury. The Hotel is in a lovely position beside the river and has super gardens which must be great to visit in the summer.

We had booked lunch for four in the restaurant. When we arrived the restaurant was full and there was no record of our booking! We waited while they tried to assemble a table but there was simply no room! We agreed to a table in the bar but waited ages for a table to be prepared. There seemed to be...

We booked a table for 18 for a friends birthday. From the moment we stepped into the Old Mill the service was top notch. The staff were brilliant, very attentive to everyone's needs. The food all came out together and I don't think anyone left a scrap on their plates. The food was excellent. Well done Team Old Mill!!

Stayed in the hotel recently. Despite foul weather there was plenty of space in the car park and it was a lovely welcome and efficient check-in. Having made my way to my room I was surprised to find a 4-poster bed! The wi-fi was free and efficient if not roastingly fast. It was a lovely quiet room, nice and warm...

Husband and I stayed here during a short break to Salisbury. Beautiful old building with a lovely walk across water meadows into Salisbury. Our room was clean and comfortable with an enormous modern bathroom. We particularly enjoyed our meals here which were freshly cooked and delicious. The staff all work very hard to give attentive and good service. Much recommended.

The location is second to none with a very pleasant walk, with great views of the Cathedral across the water meadows along the town path to town. A great full English breakfast with black pudding in a lovely restaurant overlooking the river. The Staff are very friendly & welcoming. A big bonus is the free parking.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old Mill Hotel is a 15th century building with features dating back to 1250. From its early ecclesiastical beginnings, it was transformed in the 16th century to a paper mill. The hotel is in the most tranquil location of Harnham Meadows. However, the shopping and tourist district of Salisbury City centre is a mere 10 minute walk. The paved footpath takes you through the meadows which boast the fantastic view of the Cathedral that was voted 'Best View in Britain' in a Country Life poll. It was also made famous in John Constable's classic painting 'Salisbury Cathedral'. (This camera shot alone will make your visit worthwhile.) The hotel is Grade 1 listed in parts and stands in a most peaceful and stunning location above 3 mill runs off of the River Nadder. This really is a countryside escape, just a stone's throw from the ancient city. Our traditional old English bar with low beams, stone floors and open fires, is a step back in time. A little piece of old England that has been preserved for your enjoyment. You can sample the best cask ales, a great selection of wine and food and chat to the locals whilst enjoying the best welcome and hospitality that Wiltshire has to offer. The restaurant is set in the oldest part of the hotel and sits above a mill run which is visible through a viewing panel. The ever present hum of the rushing waters and the large open fireplace, make it one of the best places to enjoy perfectly English food that's been freshly prepared by our chefs for your pleasure. When the weather permits, our restaurant and bar may be outdone by our fantastic garden setting for the best place to enjoy a cool beer, a glass of wine or a great meal. We have 11 en-suite bedrooms set over 3 floors. (No lift available, however, we will of course help you with your bags if needed.) The historic staircase leads you up to the narrow corridors of the newer part of the building, a mere 300 years old. We are sure you will find the views from all our bedrooms are impressive, whether it's the Harnham hills, the River Nadder or over our fabulous gardens set on either side of the mill run, where every seat has a waterside view! The hotel bar, restaurant and bedrooms are undergoing refurbishment during Autumn 2014 and the garden will be completed in March 2015. This is being done with the maximum respect for our present hotel, bar and restaurant visitors and will enhance this already great experience. ... more   less
