Our History

Riverside Hotel Salisbury, previously Grasmere House Hotel, was built in the 1800s by the Wort family and was one of the first houses built in Harnham, Salisbury.

The current owner’s father was an apprentice carpenter to the Wort family and in 2022 the hotel and grounds underwent a major yet sympathetic refurbishment to restore and bring back to life this charming contemporary manor house hotel.
