My wife took me here for the night for my birthday. When we checked in we got give the tour of the accomodation. Our room was huge and overlooked the gardens. Couldn't have asked for a better room. We attended a drinks reception with Steph and Dom, and also by the GM nicknamed Tigger. None of them could have done... More

My husband booked our stay for my Christmas present and I think it is one of the best presents I have ever been given. From our arrival at this sumptuous venue until the time we left, we were filled with delight. The staff have always got a smile on their face and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in... More

We stayed in Gardeners Cottage for a family celebration (daughter's 18th birthday surprise). We had the whole cottage to ourselves having booked the 3 rooms. Sandwich is beautiful. We ate at Luigi's restaurant in the town where the food was awesome. On our return we ventured over to the lovely big house for a drink in the famous living room... More

I wanted somewhere special to propose to my girlfriend and this was the perfect place. Arriving at lunch time we found eating out very easy as there are loads of places to eat within 10 minutes walk of the hotel. We had some time in the lounge of the Salutation where we had a free drink and spent time with... More

We wanted to book somewhere extra special for my Sister's 50th Birthday - and we found it! To say it was the most unique place to stay is an understatement and I strongly recommend that if you have the chance to experience The Salutation then you must! As I had been making the arrangements over the last few month's by... More

Visited the gardens and tea rooms. I feel that access to the gardens is overpriced at £6.50. A more realistic price would be £3.00. The Tea Room is perhaps the worst I have ever been to. The service was shambolic with the unbelievable excuse when asked for lemon to go with tea that "the chef had gone home and taken... More

When booking this accomodation I mimissed that the house was actually a house AND garden(s). I had assumed that the garden4s were nearby, and was looking forward to seeing them - but to have our room opening on to the gardens was a real treat. And oh! what gardens they are!!! Several (secret) gardens, and beautifully laid out. If you... More

We returned today from this wonderful, slightly bonkers country house having celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. Every member of staff was friendly and welcoming and I would echo a previous reviewer's comments that it feels like a friend's house more than a hotel. We had a sandwich in the tea room and this is where we met Tigger for the... More
