Came to stay here after a horrific experience at another hotel down the road, the owners and everyone here has made us feel so welcome and done everything they could to try and make our holiday a lovely experience. The food at breakfast is amazing, so much to choose from and so much of it. We have stayed in 2... More

What a fabulous place this. The gardens are lovely and the actually Salutation House is beautiful. As we arrived just before the gardens were due to close it meant we didn't get the chance to visit the gift shop and tea rooms as they were closing. One thing that I like the most is that they let you take dogs,... More

There was only one reason we came here: it's Steph & Dom Parker's B&B, and we couldn't pass up the chance of staying here and possibly meeting them! This certainly isn't the place for the quiet and retiring type. There is only one main social area in the house—the (in)famous TV lounge shown on Gogglebox—and the order of the day... More

We treated ourselves to a couple of nights over a bank holiday weekend. The staff are lovely, very friendly and extremely hard working. We ate in the restaurant the first night, food was nice and not that expensive. On the second night we went to Luigis after a member of staff recommended it. Tigger the manager is a really good...

Our daughter booked us into The Salutation as an anniversary present because of the gardens and the Lutyens designed house. These were both terrific, but the service, though friendly, was amateurish. The room was on the top floor and was spacious with views across the garden to the church, there were no coat hangers, one of the bedside lights didn't... More

An amazing garden and a must see for any visitor to this part of Kent. The garden is a delight with exciting planting schemes and well cared for borders and glasshouses. Really cannot put this garden visit into words that would do it justice. Go and see for yourself. Super plants on sale as you leave and a little gift... More

Whilst in Sandwich we saw the gardens of Steph and Dom from Googlebox were open so we decided to have a look. Visited these lovely gardens only (not the house) as part of a fathers day out. Nicely set out and a walk a round garden - always something around the next corner. Planted so that there is interest in... More

Lovely gardens, staff were very friendly, easy parking & walking distance into town/village. Sent an email direct to point out (NOT DRIP) some issues regarding plumbing (I am married to a heating engineer) & got a very nice reply saying thank you & will look into points raised! Room clean, big room but no sofa to sit on ... Gotta... More
