This is a wonderful b&b. Everything about it was lovely and charming! We were warmly welcomed by Vivian who immediately made us feel at home. She was a real bonus to the stay! The bedroom was comfortable, everything you need is provided. Sandra made a tasty breakfast which was very welcome before stepping out to discover the delightful Stratford Upon... More

My sister and I stayed at the Salamander this weekend 5th - 7th June. Pascale greeted us at the car, he appeared from nowhere like Mr Ben. He carried our cases for us, and then warned us about letting a complete stranger walk off with your suitcases!! he made us laugh from that minute, until the minute we left. We... More

Fabulous. Pascal greeted us with a smile. We had booked two rooms to accommodate our party of 6. The rooms were comfortable and clean plus extras e.g. hairdryer, towels, kettle. Breakfast was good and service was quick. Pascal is a true character who, while serving breakfast, pouring drinks and clearing tables had us all in fits of laughter with his... More

We stayed here just travelling north, and I think I'll remember it for a long time, mostly because of Pascale, the host. He made us laugh from the first minute. The room was comfortable (the low water pressure not their fault), the food plentiful and tasty, and Pascale kept us laughing the entire time. We got to know our fellow... More

This is my third stay here. It is a good base for Stratford. Centrally located and within easy access to all the standard Shakespeare fun. The single rooms are quite small and are not en-suite. I have never met the owner, Pascal, he seems to be in France most of the time, but Viv, who seems to run the place... More

Salamander Guest House is old fashioned, decor OK and the hot water is a bit hit and miss in the morning but the host Pascal more than makes up for this with his knowledge of the area and fun at breakfast. He tactfully gets everyone talking at breakfast and knows when its time to back off. Great service and good... More

I did not meet the owners as they were away; however, they left the running of the Guest House in the capable hands of the vivacious Viv who went out of her way to ensure everyone was comfortable and happy and that includes small touring groups who frequent the Guest House too. Viv gave me an upgrade (apparently common if... More
