Historical Traveler Reviews Rokeby Guest House Salisbury
We have just returned back from a lovely week-end at the Rokeby b & b in Salisbury. Karen and Mark always make us feel very welcome when we arrive. We enjoy the good breakfast that karen serves us in the morning and there is always plenty of tea. We are so impressed that we are going back again early september, can't wait.
Excellent stay at the Rokeby.
My wife and I had to make a trip to Salisbury for a

Edwardian period building.Nothing was too much trouble
and we received every consideration.The food was 1st.
class.we certainly intend to stay at the Rokeby again.
Salisbury's best B&B
Along with another couple, we stayed in this B&B in January during a European holiday. The main attraction of this property are the owners Mark and Karen. They are extremely friendly, outgoing people who really made us feel at home, even to joining us in the conservatory one evening for a glass or two of wine. This is the place to visit if you are into rugby!
The property is a large home converted to B&B and functions well. The consevatory is a lovely spot to relax and serves as the breakfast area. Breakfasts were superb. The rooms vary in size and ours was on the top floor of the house. The room was large and comfortable although the ensuite facilities somewhat small and our friends found their mattress to be very hard. However these are only minor niggles. This is a well run, clean, attractive and comfortable property and we would all be very happy to stay here again in the future. Highly recommended! (Don't worry Mark Wales might yet beat the All Blacks...in your dreams!)
A fantastic B&B
This Bed and Breakfast is fantastic. We arrived at noon and were welcomed warmly by our hostess. She gave us a tour of this beautiful house and walking directions to the town center. Our room was large and the bathroom was huge. Breakfast the next morning was delicious.
My son and I took advantage of the internet connected computer to dash off a few emails to friends and family.
My only problem was that I didn't have a few more days to spend here. One night was just a tease and I would have loved to spend a few days in this house.
The UK's best B&B ?
We've stayed at many in the UK, but this one gets the full 10 marks. Karen and Mark are delightful beyond belief. Spotlessly clean house, healthy breakfast, gorgeous bathroom and perfect location for sightseeing. We might return to Salisbury one day, just to stay at Rokeby ;)
PS: Thanks Karen for looking after our bags, we had a great time cycling.
My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful visit to the U.K. and a three day stay at the Rokeby Guest House. Having booked over the internet, we were so pleased with ourselves for having found this delightful B&B. Our room was large and comfortable overlooking the beautiful gardens in the back of the house and impeccably clean. Karen and Mark were so warm and welcoming and went out of their way to assist us during our stay. The breakfasts were excellent, the house magnificent, and the location perfect as a base for sightseeing the city and surrounding area. I highly recommend the Rokeby for anyone visiting the fascinating city of Salisbury!
A superb guesthouse to compliment a superb city break
A two day break in the wondeful city of Salisbury with its unique settings was compete with a stay in a marvelous guest house, The Rokeby.
The room was super and I could ask for no more, spacious, modern and comfortable.
With a full english breakfast set in the conservatory what more could I ask for, oh and of course the free internet access to check my emails.
I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wishes a top quality stay.
What a stay....
Only a short stay but what a time. A lovely conservatory, great garden and even a fish tank. My personal trainer must have shares in the breakfasts as I now need to book even more sessions with him to fight the flab!!! although i did want to use the gym provdied at the house I just didnt have time to ..... yeah right I hear you say!!!!
See you soon..... and thank you for a great stay.
10 star Guest House in a wonderful city
It was my mother's birthday and my family came to stay at Rokeby to celebrate. Karen and Mark were superb! They made us so welcome, putting wine and a card in the room for Mum and making us welcome day and night although we weren't guests!
The house is sparkling clean and the gardens are to die for! They had a family wedding themselves but still made us feel at home and welcome - now we've found them the family wouldn't stay anywhere else.
Well done Karen and Mark - you deserve every recognition for the service you are providing - you are better than a hotel at half the cost.
Best B&B stay ever!
We spent a weekend in Salisbury this past March and booked in at the Rokeby Guest House for two nights. On arrival, we met the couple (and their cat Buster who we fell in love with and considered packing in our bag to bring home!) who are really lovely, friendly people and truly committed to making your stay enjoyable.
Our room was stunning! I loved the decor, very elegant and tasteful and the en-suite had a huge victorian bath in the middle of the room (very romantic!)
Throughout the house, there are loads of small, personal touches which really add to the ambiance of the place and make it special.
The dining room is also gorgeous; it has one of those old fashioned spiral staircases leading down into a conservatory where there are more tables and chairs and couches to lounge around on.
There was a choice of breakfasts - I highly recommend the smoked salmon with scrambled egg - Shaun loved the full english - both were yummy!
There's also a very pretty garden with a pond which would be very nice to relax in in warmer weather.
Karen and Mark gave us lots of suggestions and directions on where to go and what to see and we really had an amazing time. I only wish we could've stayed longer.
I would definitely rate it at at least 10 out of 10!
We've told all our friends about it and although there are many wonderful new places in England to discover, we honestly can't wait to go back to Salisbury and the Rokeby!
