The Salutation lived up to its billing, and we had a fabulous weekend! Sad that we missed Steph and Dom, but we enjoyed the company of the other guests in the famous drawing room; and Tigger made us feel very welcome. Have only visited Sandwich once before, in the summer, and we both agreed we prefer it in the winter... More

We stopped at the Salutation on the weekend of 31st October for 2 nights in the Henry.The room was lovely and so was the view over the gardens. Sandwich is a lovely town, we also visited Canterbury, which was equally enjoyable. We were fortunate enough to spend an evening with Dom & Steph with other guests. What an evening! They... More

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
