8/10 Very good

Very warm welcome to this nicely refurbished hotel, and would stay again, however, the rude awakening as builders removed a door and frame immediately under our room with drills etc at 8am was less than ideal… when mentioned to reception staff (for their “learning” and with no intent on redress ) they acknowledged but were dispassionate and unsympathetic. What a difference staff can make!

We had a lovely stay at The Riverside. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent. We ate in the restaurant on three nights and although it was a limited menu everything was fresh, well cooked and delicious. All of the staff were very attentive and friendly. The location is excellent for visiting the area. Stonehenge, Wimborne, Winchester and Christchurch were all within an easy distance. The centre of Salisbury is just a short walk away. A wonderful stay!
