Christmas Eve dinner was wonderful, but Christmas Day Lunch was fabulous. Streamers and paper hats and crackers and everyone got in to the spirit. This hotel is one of the few in Salisbury (if not the only one) which has a handicapped room, and again, the staff went out of their way to make it easy for this special guest. On Christmas morning, the owner of the hotel presented wrapped gifts to the three children in our party, and spent time visiting with us. This was my third visit in this hotel, and I''m already planning the next one.
The Red Lion
The rooms are all nicely furnished but vary in size and decor. The family room is extremely large and has 2 double beds, 2 twin beds and a crib. It is located on the 3rd floor, has a sloping, beamed ceiling and a view of Salisbury Cathedral from each of its 3 windows. The handicapped room had two queen size beds, a sofa, a small table and 2 chairs. There is an elevator to all floors.
