Just returned from a short break at the Salutation and was very impressed from start to finish. Reception staff very welcoming and helpful at all times, and that also goes for the service we received from all the staff at breakfast times. Our room (114) was excellent, a well appointed twin room with the added bonus of it's own outside... More

We ate here for the first time, May 14th, after the disappointment of the Queens Hotel the night before. The menu was varied, the quality of food, wine and service was very good and sensibly priced (similar to the Queens but superior all round). Although a formal restaurant setting it was comfortable and relaxing.

It was a really lovely stay, everything impressed us. The room (402) was fantastic, a huge bed, totally quiet and the right temperature, oh and an amazing bath! Very clean and good attention to detail (the hot drinks, bath towels for spa, free newspaper etc). From the outside it looks a bit dated but inside is first class. The spa... More

The hotel is situated right in the centre of the town, great location with parking on sight (always a bonus) The hotel is quite traditional, decor in some areas a little dated. Reception staff checked us in pretty quickly and finding our room was simple for a old building. Our room allocation was nice, we had a view overlooking the... More

Stayed here with friends for the last 3 nights and enjoyed it. The hotel was right in the town centre, handy for eating out elsewhere, and we were able to have 2 full days walking from and back to the hotel - nice not to have to drive. The general quality of the hotel was higher than expected, the service... More
