Our two day break at The Salutation was excellent. The house and gardens are both first class and up to the standards of a boutique hotel. Our corner room, Henry, offered views over both the gardens and the local Medieval Church. The hospitality shown by Dom and Tigger was fantastic. Their generosity of spirit and spirits was second to none.... More

After a weekend working in Canterbury, booked a room here for the Sunday night as a surprise treat. We arrived around 5:30 to be invited for drinks on the terrace with the other guests. Wonderful company and fabulous hosting, many glasses of wine later enjoyed a meal at the Italian restaurant just a short stroll from the hotel with Dom... More

My Husband and I had the pleasure of spending a night at The Salutation and had a wonderful time. Dom is an expert host, a welcoming smile offering local knowledge and great company for evening drinks in the Drawing Room...on the famous sofa! Our room was in Knightrider House, just across the gravel drive opposite the tea rooms. This offered... More

My husband and my (pregnant) self stayed last Friday night, and what a night it was! We got a bit of a discount for a last-minute booking, and didn't turn up until 9pm. Nevertheless, we were warmly greeted by Dominic and shown to our room, the Farrar Suite, which is absolutely beautiful, and huge! I'm sure the other rooms don't... More

We have just returned from a fantastic night at The Salutation. We stayed in the Farrar suite in the main house which was excellent. I spoke with Dom a few weeks prior to the visit as it was a surprise birthday present and engagement for my now Fiancée. He was very helpful and helped me arrange my surprise. On the... More

Stayed in the gardeners cottage for 2 nights a couple of weeks ago, for my sister-in-laws 50th birthday. ( one gorgeous room each - there are 3 all together in the cottage) Despite a "car disaster" travelling from Sussex, we both had the best weekend. To quote Diane " best weekend ever in my 50 years!" We met Dom, just... More

Our Thursday night visit was a gift from our daughters, which proved to be much better than a knitted sweater. Our room was on the top floor of this wonderful house which is picture perfect. The garden had been recently flooded after the bad winter but despite that they still looked wonderful. In the Spring/Summer they will be a delight.... More

We stayed in the Henry room which was just lovely, the bed was amazing with lovely crisp white bed linen(which I love). Steph and Dom were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was yummy as was the afternoon tea we had at the tea shop. We felt that we were staying with friends rather than at... More

Stayed on a Saturday night, the location, rooms and breakfast are all excellent, our room was Lutyens and the huge bathroom and extremely comfortable bed made the stay perfect, the owners Dom and Steph really make an effort to welcome you, thank you for a great stay.
