Chapter House ★★☆
A Tudor-era coaching inn a block from Salisbury Cathedral
Formerly known as The King's Arms, this Tudor coaching inn across from a Cathedral Close gate has been welcoming guests since at least the 16th century. It even supposedly once hosted Charles I and Charles II.
It has character galore, with exposed wooden beams in some of the 17 rooms and wood paneling in others (a few even have fireplaces)—but "character" also means low doorways, crooked steps, and uneven floors. Still, to me that only adds to the ye olde English charm of the hotel.
The amenities and bathrooms, on the other hand, are all modern, with rain showerheads or huge rollt-op tubs.
The downstairs pub—which also serves as the main entrance, and the breakfast room—is warmed by an open fire, and the staff couldn't be friendlier.Book it
