About Best Western Red Lion Hotel

About The Red Lion Hotel

*** We’re delighted to once again be offering viewings of our beautiful wedding venue ***

Your venue…

Located right in the heart of Salisbury, our 800 year old four star hotel is one of the most romantic settings that you could choose for your wedding celebrations. With history and heart in every beam, and a picturesque courtyard for those all-important wedding day photographs.

Salisbury Cathedral is only a five minute walk away – a truly stunning backdrop for a few extra newlywed photographs.

Your ceremony…

We’re a licensed venue, giving you the convenient option of holding your ceremony and reception in one location. Ceremonies can accommodate up to 80 guests and you’ll have the choice of two beautiful suites.

Your reception…

Wedding receptions are held your choice of three suites, with the largest being our Courtyard Suite, which is able to hold up to 120 guests for your evening reception.

This suite has its own private entrance, private bar, access to our courtyard and a large dance floor for you and your guests to dance the night away.

Your wedding breakfast…

Wedding breakfasts are held in your choice of two suites, with the largest being able to accommodate up to 80 guests.

Your wedding breakfast will be created by our talented team of chefs using fresh, locally sourced produce where possible and catering for all dietary requirements. Our menus are just a starting point, if there’s something that you would like for your wedding breakfast then we’re very flexible.

Your wedding night…

It’s nothing but the best for the newlyweds on your wedding night – you’ll get a complimentary stay in our most luxurious room, the Seamstress Suite. This extraordinary one-of-a-kind room features a cast iron bathtub at the bottom of the bed!

Our hotel also offers 60 stylishly appointed bedrooms for your family and friends travelling in for the day, all at a discounted room rate.

From your first visit all the way through to your wedding day, you’ll be in the safe hands of our expert weddings team.

    Outstanding service

    On behalf of myself and my husband, Lynda & Mike Misselbrook (the Groom's parents) and of course Cat & Andrew Misselbrook- our newlyweds, I would like to thank the Best Western Red Lion Hotel for providing outstanding service at Cat & Andrew's Wedding Reception on 15th August 2018.
    The whole event was executed perfectly, and we know that this is down to one thing - you and your teams.
    In particular, we would like to thank a number of members of staff who provided exceptional service: Dawn Brand- your Reception Manager, the lady who was the Manager of table service at the Wedding Reception (and much more!)- who has long blond hair and glasses and we believe may be called Fanika? Your head chef (who's name we do not know, but who's food was beautiful!!) and of course both of you, for leading the team and providing what we can only describe as brilliant customer service from the point at which we first visited the hotel last year, to the point at which the very last guest left.
    It has been a wonderful occasion and once which we will never forget and we thank you most sincerely for playing a key role in making it so.


    With warmest regards

    Jenny & John Steer
