We stayed for two nights at The Salutation. It was an extravagant present to my partner for his birthday. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the luxury and the grandeur - but there were areas that could be improved. The hospitality was just as I had read - we were greeted warmly and made to feel at home. The... More

We opted for The Salutation as we were attending a wedding at another venue (the Blazing Donkey) and being a fan of Gogglebox we thought it the perfect opportunity to experience this beautiful B&B. We stayed in St.Michaels in Knightrider House and loved it, it's the cheapest room they do not compromise on anything. Luxury bed linen, towels, bath robes,... More

. I'm still not too sure what to make of The Salutation, and maybe The Salutation no longer knows what to make of itself? First appearance of the Lutyens building was very nice, but we were greeted by a drunk yob called Tiger ( Tigger?) who's opening line was "Hope you aren't planning to drive tomorrow morning as you'll still...

My husband booked us in for four nights at the Salutation as part of my 30th birthday present. We had such a wonderful time from start to finish. When we arrived, Tigger met us and showed us around, telling us to treat the house as our own. It is a spectacular building, with truly beautiful gardens. Tigger told us there... More

I thought I would treat my wife on her 50th birthday to an overnight stay at The Salutation after seeing this place on channel 4's Four in a Bed a few years ago. We found it difficult to find, especially as the house sign is covered by foliage, on arrival the reception was unmanned and eventually we were shown to... More

Stayed in the Gardeners Cottage which is to the left side of the main building. Very quaint cottage we had 2 rooms place was clean and comfy. The rear of the building lead straight onto a very busy carpark by the canal, which surprised us as we thought we would be away from civilisation. Just a short walk from the... More

We visited the gardens on Sunday and I must agree with other comments made that I think it is overpriced for what is there. To make matters worse the cafe is a complete shambles! The waitress who took our order for two cream teas must have been day dreaming as only one pot of tea arrived. We had nearly given... More

As much has been said about the 'celeb' status of the owners and the hospitality at The Salutation, we will leave this aspect aside for the review. My husband and I enjoyed an extended weekend here. We found all of the staff very friendly and extremely enthusiastic in making sure we had everything we needed - the chef even helped... More

We had a girls weekend away and stayed in Knightrider House. Dom & Steph were great hosts, very welcoming, funny and jolly good company - we were treated like old friends. All the guests enjoyed having drinks and mingling with everyone, everyone expected the same type of reception and were all willing to join in the fun. The breakfast at... More
