Stunning views, relaxing tranquility and luxury accommodation come together at 4* Rose & Crown Hotel Salisbury Wiltshire to create the perfect getaway in the historic city of Salisbury. This 13th Century riverside coaching inn is as picturesque as the views it commands of Salisbury Cathedral and is just a short walk from all the shops, sights and sounds of the city. Just a little further afield is Stonehenge, New Forest, Longleat, Bath and many other fantastic attractions.
We have a number of different styles of guest rooms at Rose & Crown Hotel Salisbury Wiltshire. Take in the history of the hotel and stay in one of our rooms in the 13th Century section. Here rooms have been lovingly restored to complement the original oak beams and panelling but yet have subtle modern conveniences. Garden Wing Executive Rooms are spacious with some rooms located on the ground floor providing doors opening directly onto our garden and riverside watching the wildlife on the river and watching the sunset over the cathedral.
Rose & Crown Hotel Salisbury Wiltshire is also home to Rivers Edge Waterfront Restaurant, Bar and Terrace which serves a mouth-watering range of traditional and modern dishes in elegant yet relaxed surroundings. If the weather permits you can even enjoy these delicious dishes out on the terrace area overlooking the river.

The Orangery has been decorated with neutral tones so the space acts as a blank canvas for any event offering panoramic views of the hotel’s landscaped gardens, the River Avon and Salisbury Cathedral. A removeable partition wall allows The Orangery and Cathedral Suite to operate as one large space or two separate areas, expanding the venue’s private event capacity to a 120-person reception space.
A wooden gazebo, fitted with lighting and speakers, has been set on the sweeping gardens, freshly landscaped each spring adding to the hotel’s romantic setting. As warmer weather rolls in, guests of the hotel can enjoy the breath-taking Salisbury scenery, the inspiration behind artist John Constable’s famous piece ‘Salisbury Cathedral from the Meadows’, with a punt along the river thanks to the Salisbury Punting team who depart from a mooring outside the hotel throughout the summer.
Derek McNeill, general manager of The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel, comments: “The Orangery and Cathedral Suite have been specifically designed to maximise the picture-perfect views we are so lucky to have. Neutral tones, French doors and windows wrapping around more than half of the venue allow the riverside backdrop to be a living art installation, providing the ideal indoor-outdoor space for events making the most of our beautiful location on the River Avon. The terrace and landscaped gardens extend our offering further and I’d be so bold to say that we are the lucky proprietors of one of, if not the, best location in Salisbury and we prove this by maintaining our status as the top-rated wedding venue in Wiltshire, as voted by WeddingDates users.

When walking into the celebrated Cathedral Close in Salisbury, visitors step back into a past world, and on entering Mompesson House, featured in the award-winning film Sense and Sensibility, the feeling of leaving the modern world behind is deepened.
