The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel, Salisbury, reveals new waterfront event space

13 Apr 2017

The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel, Salisbury, has revealed a new waterfront event space alongside refurbishments to the gardens and Cathedral Suite

On Thursday 7th April, the four-star Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel in Salisbury held an exclusive event to reveal its brand new waterfront event space The Orangery and its newly-refurbished Cathedral Suite to local businesses and residents. Before relaxing in the spring sunshine on the revamped terrace and exploring the latest expansion, guests were greeted with orange martinis, tasty canapés from the hotel’s new event menus, and live jazz music from Dinner Jazz Sax.

“The event was a fantastic success and a wonderful opportunity to showcase the new developments and investment we are making in order to maintain our status as the top-rated wedding venue in Wiltshire, as voted by WeddingDates users,” commented Derek McNeill, general manager of The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel.

The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel in Salisbury is an original 13th-century coaching inn that has retained many of its original features, some of which date back over 600 years. With 34 bedrooms and suites, and a restaurant that can cater for 120 guests, the hotel is a sought-after venue for weddings and functions.

The newly-constructed Orangery offers panoramic views of the hotel’s landscaped gardens, the River Avon, and Salisbury Cathedral, with a removable partition wall allowing The Orangery and the connected Cathedral Suite to operate as one large space or two separate areas. The Cathedral Suite has been redecorated with neutral tones so the space can act as a blank canvas for any event. 

“The Orangery and Cathedral Suite have been specifically designed to maximise the picture-perfect views we are so lucky to have. Neutral tones, French doors, and windows wrapping around more than half of the venue allow the riverside backdrop to be a living art installation, providing the ideal indoor-outdoor space for events making the most of our beautiful location on the River Avon,” Derek McNeill explained. “The newly refurbished terrace and landscaped gardens extend our offering further and I’d be so bold to say that we are the lucky proprietors of one of, if not the, best location in Salisbury.”

The sweeping gardens have been freshly landscaped as part of the venue’s latest refurbishment project, and a wooden gazebo, fitted with lighting and speakers, has been introduced, adding to the hotel’s romantic setting. As the weather gets warmer, guests will be able to enjoy the breathtaking Salisbury scenery with a punt along the river thanks to the Salisbury Punting team who depart from a mooring outside the hotel throughout the summer.

The new and improved space at The Legacy Rose & Crown Hotel is perfect for all occasions including weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and private parties. To book a private viewing, visit www.legacy-hotels.co.uk/hotels/rose-crown-hotel-salisbury-wiltshire.
