This is a standard Wetherspoons. The building is lovely, although a bit untidy in the bar area. I've not seen the accommodations so can't comment on that. The food and drink was cheap and cheerful enough.

Great room, spacious and comfortable, in a very walkable distance between the train station and the center of town!!! Very good location for walking around Salisbury, close to the Cathedral. They kept my luggage until my check in time.

First impression excellent. Room newly refurbished (or so it looked) modern in an old building with lovely high ceilings.. bathroom stunning fab shower. Service left a lot to be desired. Their idea of making the bed was to straighten the duvet and tuck it all in. On closer inspection the sheet had been left as we had got out of...

Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Good value on Sundays. The only trouble was that it was very cold with no radiators. It had just a air con system which are great at cooling but poor at heating and a towel rail in the bathroom that did nothing. The weatherspoons pub downstairs was also filthy with food heaped up on...

This hotel is fabulously located in the hear of Salisbury. Although it doesn't have its own car park there is a huge one nearby. The bedroom was superb and we liked the fact that the bathroom was separately located off the corridor making it feel like a small flat. We stayed on a Sunday so the room rate was unbelievably...

Amazing building with crazy convoluted halls and rooms. Some staff were very helpful, some were not really interested. The room overlooked the courtyard which you would expect to be quite lively, but was also really noisy after closing - bottles crashing, noisy trolleys, crashing and banging. The room itself was clean and well presented, as Wetherspoons usually are. Lovely touch...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The site of this Wetherspoon pub has been occupied by an inn since the 15th century. By c1520, it was known as the King's Head, and it retained that name until it was rebuilt in the 1880s. The County Hotel was, itself, a change of name some time during the 1880s or 1890s. Before then, it was the Kings Head and Brewery. We have 33 individual bedrooms. All of our rooms are en suite and include tea- and coffee-making facilities, air conditioning, a hair dryer, TV and free Wi-Fi, also available in the pub. Please be aware that we are a Lloyds No 1 bar so we will be playing music in the pub from Thursday to Saturday nights. Limited quiet rooms are available so please telephone in advance to request one. We have no onsite parking but there is a city centre car park we recommend that is only a 3-5 minute walk away. You are able to stop on the pub entrance to unload your luggage before you go and park. ... more   less
