Met Dom and Steph (and Tigger) both evenings for drinks in the drawing room with the other guests. Unforgetable experience; Dom and Steph were both soooo funny!

We had an extremely jolly evening a few weeks ago: bar-b-que on the terrace. People seemed to be talking about some TV thing, but ignore that, it works on its own merits, and the team created a great atmosphere with sufficient sprinkling of stardust without overkill!! A real summer tonic. Sandwich is also an extremely pretty little town and well... More

Fawlty Towers seems to be running this place. It was only at the end we learned mine host has been on TV's Goggle Box and seems to believe he is on TV when he is running his hotel. Lutyens architecture, Jekyll-inspired gardens, and Grade I listed building and town, itself. The breakfasts are first class (when Mon thru Fri, main... More

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

Describing The Salutation as a bed and breakfast doesn't do it justice. We stayed here for our first night away with our baby when she was just 11 days old to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have asked for a better welcome or more comfortable stay. Our room was incredibly spacious and beautifully decorated with great views of... 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
