Having stayed at The Salutation before I was excited to be going again. Overall our stay was good we had The Henry room which is really lovely and our friends had the Farrer Suite but certain aspects of the house are needing some maintenance and TLC. Breakfast was mediocre, the scrambled egg was overcooked. Unfortunately having stayed before I had... More

So looking forward to this after all the hype. So had high hopes indeed. Booked up to have Sunday lunch on 21/8/16, and probably the worst experience ever. Place in parts looked run down (I love shabby chic, but the s was quite shabby), stacks of broken old chairs in the garden in view of the house. Flower beds untended... More

We stayed in The Salutation on the night of our wedding. My now-husband had chosen us an absolutely amazing room, which completely lived up to expectations. The views were incredible and it was large and comfy. Very impressive. Unfortunately, the hotel had not informed us (despite the fact that it was our own wedding night), that there was another wedding... More

What a unique experience. From the moment we arrived the staff were fantastic. Tiger was a real life and soul and very attentive. Natalea looked after us and even stayed on after her shift had finished. The bar guys George and Roman were superb too. We love the way the staff encourage guests to meet other guests....a great way to... More

Great setting for this garden with well planted borders. Pleasant staff. The £7 entry is more than it's worth, when compared to National Trust and English Heritage properties. Note - the house and associated terraces are definitely off limits to non-residents.

We stayed for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Not so much the usual weekend away, more like staying at a country house weekend party. From the fantastic welcome from Tigger, the Manager, to the mature beyond his years Dash, to the late night stargazing with Steph and Dom - an unforgettable experience. Thank you everyone.
