Reviews - Grasmere House Hotel

3AA Assessed Hotel Ratings explained
70 Harnham Road , Salisbury, SP2 8JN
Conveniently situated on the A3094 within a short walk to Salisbury Cathedral, offering Wi-Fi access and ample parking. The Hotel is nestled amidst 1.5 acres of idyllic gardens by the banks of the rivers Avon and Nadder, this superb Victorian House provides effortless accessibility with an atmosphere of comfort and splendour. Boasting stunning Cathedral views, a stylish on-site restaurant, luxury accommodation, dedicated function provision, it is the perfect place from which to explore the delights of Salisbury and the surrounding Wiltshire countryside.

Each of the 38 en-suite rooms are stylishly furnished and decorated, reflecting the traditional charm of the building’s Victorian heritage. They all come fully equipped with all the modern comforts and conveniences one would expect from a hotel of this calibre, including Wi-Fi access, satellite TV, hairdryer, trouser press and hospitality tray. There are room types to suit all kinds of traveller, from luxury four-poster beds to three-bedroom family apartments.
With award-winning vistas over Grasmere’s gardens down to the rivers and across the water meadows to Salisbury Cathedral, the stylish Conservatory Restaurant is the perfect place for indulging one’s culinary palette. Specialising in classic British cuisine with eclectic international influences, dishes are freshly prepared using locally sourced produce wherever possible. Daily and Market Day specials feature along with themed evenings that are popular with hotel residents and regular guests from the locality. The Nadder Bar provides a great spot to unwind with a quaint Wiltshire Afternoon Tea or perhaps a glass of wine (or two) in the evening.

Originally built in 1896, this charming red-brick building has been lovingly converted and extended into a private hotel. Great care has been taken to ensure that it still retains the features and atmosphere of a traditional Victorian family home. The hotel is surrounded by 1.5 acres of mature gardens that slope down to the banks of the river. The towering beech trees and small woodland fir copse create the perfect backdrop to a peaceful and relaxing stay for both holidaymakers and business travellers alike.

Grasmere House Hotel is also a fantastic venue for corporate events and functions. The main conference suite can accommodate up to 110 delegates, whilst the River Rooms are ideally suited for board meetings, presentations and other smaller gatherings. It is not all business though; they also cater for a wide range of different events and special occasions. The hotel is licensed to host weddings and civil ceremonies and can provide a memorable indoor or outdoor setting for that most special of days. From lavish celebrations to smaller, more intimate affairs the hotel has the flexibility and the know-how to ensure that every detail runs as smoothly as possible.

The Grasmere House Hotel is located on the A3094 Harnham Road, on the south side of the City, just a few minute’s walk from the centre of Salisbury. Salisbury railway station is on the main London Waterloo line and is 20 minutes walk or a 7 minute taxi ride away. For those flying in, it’s a 90 minute drive from London’s Heathrow and Gatwick Airports and half an hour from Southampton and Bournemouth Airports.

There is never a shortage of things to do in Salisbury or the wider area of Wiltshire. The welcoming team at the Grasmere House Hotel will be happy to offer suggestions of places to visit or to assist in arranging day trips. Affectionately known as ‘The city in the countryside’, the majestic medieval city of Salisbury is one of the UK’s finest tourist destinations. Walking down its’ historic streets and alleyways, taking in the splendid half-timbered buildings and traditional English eating houses, it almost feels as if the past has come to life. Nowhere is this more evident than Salisbury Cathedral, towering as it does over the surrounding landscape. Over 750 years old, it features the tallest spire in Britain, Europe’s oldest working clock and the world’s best-preserved Magna Carta. This wonder of medieval architecture stands in the tranquil Cathedral Close, home to the award-winning Salisbury and south Wiltshire Museum, The Rifles military museum, Edward Heath’s Arundells, and the National Trust’s Mompesson House. What makes Salisbury truly unique is how effortlessly the old world combines with the new. Ever since the 13th Century Salisbury has been a thriving centre of commerce, from the vibrant Charter Market and Famers Market to the best in high-street names at Old George Mall. There is also a wide variety of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms, ranging from cosmopolitan pavement cafes and stylish eateries to welcoming inns and traditional country alehouses.

Outside of the city, the hills and valleys of South Wiltshire offer a variety of charming country towns and villages as well as many heritage sites. Standing proudly on Salisbury Plain is the iconic Stonehenge, a mysterious pre-historic monument of significant cultural importance. Wiltshire is also the home of some of the grandest stately homes and gardens in the UK, including the magnificent Wilton House, Longleat Safari and Adventure Park and the splendid Broadlands Estates. All of which are easily accessible from Grasmere House Hotel.

A bit run down and in need of some redecoration - good for the reduced rate that I paid but certainly wouldnt pay full price. Excellent location and beautiful grounds and views

Excellent Stay !
We stayed here so we could visit my sister-in-law who is in a nursing home in Salisbury.
My husband's brother joined us for lunch one day. Apart from the fact we were the only ones in the dining room, the staff were very attentive. It gave us an opportunity to talk freely.
The bedroom / bathroom were well equipped and the large double bed was very comfortable and we slept well. Unfortunately, I left some clothes in the wardrobe. I rang and emailed the staff who kindly sent the clothes by return. We were impressed with the staff on reception who were very helpful.

lovely, comfortable and spacious hotel
The room was large, clean and quiet and the view of the cathedral spire magical. The hotel was close to the city centre, and a healthy walk to the train station. The only down side of our stay was the lack of knowledge of the staff, who did not know the basic things we asked of them (such as where do we catch the bus for the Stonehenge tour, and other questions a visitor might ask). Not only were all the Eastern European staff clueless, they made no effort to try to help. All our questions were shrugged off, which was not a good feeling. The manager (who we never saw) needs a much stronger front-of-house team, and a little staff training would not go amiss.

Great Find
Coming into town late in the day, we were pleased to find such a wonderful place to spend the night. Staff was very pleasant and willing to help in any way. Room was clean and bigger than most we had stayed during our trip. TV and Wi-Fi were out because of the weather, but that didn't matter. Met some friendly folks in the lounge that helped us plan our following day.
