I visited the salutation again in June two years after my last visit and I can only say it has got worse. The rooms are clean and well maintained as I said in earlier review but the dinning room and the food has got worse. We waited 20 minutes to be seated as we had asked for a table of... More

We have just returned from another lovely weekend stay at the Salutation Hotel in Perth. The hotel is tired and in need of upgrading but it is clean, the staff are lovely and cannot do enough for you (especially Cheryl on reception) and the buffet breakfast is always excellent. We stay here as we attend the Rewind Scotland festival so... More

Salutation Hotel or locally known as The Sally is probably the oldest hotel in Perth and full of character. Floors that slope, creaking floorboards, huge brass handrail on the main staircase just to name a few. After a full day at The Open Golf in St.Andrews we arrived back windswept and tired but after a hot shower and change of... More

Many thanks for such a pleasant review, I am pleased you found the rooms spotless, lovely staff and breakfast fantastic, yes the location is ideal. We did indeed anticipate that there would be a requirement for muddy boots hence the the extra towelage and black bags. Hope we will see you back at a future Rewind Festival. Kind regards More

Just back from rewind weekend and like a lot of guests we ended up wet, a bit fed up and tired when we got back to hotel. However staff made you feel as if you'd just arrived back with friends and family with warm welcomes, listened to our tales, chatted and did everything they could to make it better. It... More

Many thanks for taking a few minutes to share your joys of the Salutation Hotel. I am so pleased after a rather muddy Rewind Weekend when you returned you were made to feel so welcome by the staff.
