I had called the Hotel a few months ago to ask if they were dog friendly. And was politely told no. Yet as I am about to write my review and reading other guests reviews I have seen at least two comments regarding people taking their dogs as it is dog friendly! So I am afraid thatis now another negative... More

I took my husband here for a little birthday treat on the 22nd September. Well what can I say. We absolutely loved it. Upon arrival we were greeted by Dash a really lovely young man. He showed us to our room and offered us drinks from the bar. We stayed in the Edwin suite. It was a very large room,... More

What an amazing experience! Spent one night here for a birthday treat and had such a good time. The house and grounds are gorgeous (elegant but not pretentious) but it's the staff that make this place so special. We stayed in St Andrews room in the cottage opposite the main house but spent the evening in the main house chatting... More

As fans of the TV series ‘Goggle Box’ we had wanted to stay in Dom & Steph’s B&B The Salutation. The opportunity arose when we went to stay with my Sister who lives in Westgate, so we tacked on an extra day to the trip and I booked a one night stay booking the Farrer Suite, the cost was very...

We had a lovely room as an upgrade free of charge which was a nice surprise. Beautiful house, gardens, staff (especially Tigger) but the breakfast experience let it all down. Read the other reviews as I have to sadly agree.

Stayed here last night for my partners birthday. Beautiful house and grounds, we stayed in William which was lovely and had the biggest bed ever in!!! The highlight for us had to be the staff! They were all so welcoming and helpful, particularly the bar men who not only ensured our wine glasses were never empty but also doubled as... More

So, it's a beautiful house and the owners are apparently famous, although I've never heard of them. Sandwich is lovely although I wouldn't want to eat one here. The place is crumbling, both metaphorically and literally. The rooms are weird, the gardens unkempt and the management, well, there doesn't appear to be any. I'm not sure if it's a B&B... More

It was lovely in Sandwich, good old fashioned retreat. Salutations was inviting, friendly and laid back. Beautiful gardens. We had to wait for our room to be made up as they were short staffed, it was not a problem we sat on the patio in the sun and had a couple of drinks. Young Chloe couldn't do enough to reassure...

Great service! Welcomed with a smile and a chilled relaxed greeting. Cleo and Madeline were amazing! Loved the gardens, grounds and the room is stunning! Would definitely recommend and will come back again. Best birthday surprise ever and now terrified what' I'll do for my partners birthday next year! Haha.

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
