Pembroke Arms, Wilton, Wiltshire
This family-run coaching offers a quiet welcome, with plenty of parking, and sits in a handy position in Wilton, on the road into Salisbury. The lounge, bar and restaurant are filled with quirky antiques that are a joy to discover, and free bar snacks help foster a congenial, warm atmosphere. Nine bedrooms continue the vintage feel, with wallpaper in gentle patterns and quaint furniture. In the restaurant, pies are a speciality, so be sure to bring an appetite. The hotel suits people who prefer an honest, fuss-free approach to food and accomodation, rather than those hoping to be wowed.
Rather usefully, there is a bus stop directly outside the inn, meaning that guests can easily catch the bus up the road into Salisbury. Wilton has some attractive historic buildings of its own and is well worth exploring too.
The hotel is in the middle of the market town of Wilton. The remains of the Old Sarum Iron Age fort (and accompanying museum) are around a 10-minute drive away.
By car: around 1 hour 30 minutes from Bristol, 2 hours 30 minutes from London and 4 hours 10 minutes from Manchester. There is free parking available on-site.
By train: direct trains run to Salisbury Station from London Waterloo (1 hour 30 minutes), Cardiff Central (2 hours 5 minutes) and Portsmouth Harbour (1 hour). The hotel is a 10-minute taxi ride from Salisbury Station. thetrainline.com
Style & Character
The hotel suits couples, friends and families with well-behaved children who fancy exploring Salisbury but enjoying the quiet life just outside the city. We love the interesting old knick-knacks that are dotted about, especially the full suits of armour and the grandfather clocks.
Service & Facilities
There is ample parking directly outside, just behind the inn, which is convenient.
- Free parking

We like that each room comes with a vintage-style tea tray, in keeping with the character of the hotel. Our favourite room is the triple room dressed in patterned scarlet wallpaper, one of two triple rooms containing a double and a single bed.
