The Salamander Middleburg Resort is routinely lauded for its exceptional service, with guests describing staff as friendly and professional, despite occasional slow service in dining areas. While some have raised concerns about the upkeep and style of the decor in rooms, the overall cleanliness and spaciousness are well-regarded. The hotel's atmosphere is frequently celebrated for its regal charm and inviting ambiance.

Wow Salamander blew our minds away! It was such a beautiful property with expansive grounds and lawns it was such a beautiful walkable property! The food at the restaurant Harrimans was stellar! The rooms were so quiet and has such nice soft sheets it was brilliant! Finally the gym and pool were really nice there are a lot of kids in the pool. So, make sure to expect that.

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel/resort is a hidden gem in Middleburg Virginia. I felt like we were visiting our treasured country houses in Europe. The rooms are very regal and will leave you feeling like you are royalty. I heard many people visiting the spa were happy and then treated themselves to lunch at the cup and wine bar. I can highly recommend the food as being a five-star experience. It is a beautiful scenic area that has a vast variety of activities for the whole family. If you love horses make sure to visit Cupcake, Kardashian and Cole. There is an outdoor fire pit, plenty of hiking trails, along with guided activities for groups. Everything experienced far exceeded expectations. The Salamander left this mom of four feeling relaxed and refreshed for the first time in a really long time, it was exactly the respit I needed.

We were looking for a truly classy resort on a country property within striking distance of DC, and found it in the Salamander. The hotel is beautifully decorated; the common areas (library, lobby, etc) warm, large and comfortable; the staff very friendly and helpful; and the spa and spa experience excellent. Our suite was large and welcoming; the bed was perfect, and the L-couch in front of the fireplace in the living area made for great March Madness viewing. We enjoyed strolling the ample paths that wind through the outdoor areas, bushwhacking through the woods (see below), the free car service, and the expertise of the concierges with whom we worked. The location is perfect for getting west (check out Upperville, Sky Meadows State Park for well-marked hiking, and the unique village of Paris), south (visited Rectortown, Delaplane, Marshall, and more), and east of course to DC. Easily accessible also from Dulles, I highly recommend the Salamander. Only two downsides: 1) the trails on property were inaccurately marked, and not enough of them were loop trails, and 2) the bathroom could use a few more hooks/towel racks. Pretty minor critiques in the grand scheme of things!

Mother and daughter trip!! Everything was incredible- especially Eliza the front desk manager and everyone at the spa. Super gorgeous and luxurious without feeling like a pretentious resort. Super cozy and home-like feel and super awesome food! Wish Harrimans was open for dinner Monday - Tuesday but otherwise everything was 10/10!!

Sheila Johnson is a VISIONARY. Salamander is all that and more. Came for a girlfriends trip and the experience is top tier. From the breathtaking estate, to the incredible food (your taste buds will thank you), to the exemplary service from the amazing staff, I HIGHLY recommend that you treat yourself. I want to give a special thank you to Jessica, the overnight front desk staff member, who graciously assisted me. Jessica was patient, meticulous and incredibly knowledgeable. I also appreciated how bubbly she was first thing in the morning. As I enjoy my last couple of hours at Salamander, I am already planning my next stay.

This was my first visit here but certainly not my last! My sisters and I came here for some rest and relaxation….the Salamander did not disappoint! The property is absolutely stunning and the service was amazing! Kiora was a sweetheart from the moment we met her! She was so kind, helpful and so detailed with her approach. Please go visit Mable in the gift shop! The car service to go downtown Middleburg was a huge plus and our drivers…..Jordan, Alexis and Keegan were incredible….so friendly and great conversationists! Make it your business to visit this location….you will enjoy your visit, the staff, the spa and of course the food!!

My family and I went here for their Sweatheart’s Dance (family oriented Valentine’s dance) only- we did not actually stay at the hotel. Having said that, in our short stay on the property- I have nothing but high praises. I am writing this review specifically to point out one of their employees Kari Bowman. She went above and beyond twice for us! We had some problems getting my son’s boutonnière to stay in place so she found us a safety pin and later when my shoe strap broke, she came to the rescue again. Half joking I asked her since she helped with my son, if she had a glue gun or something to help with my shoe situation. Totally straight faced, she said yes absolutely. I thought she was joking but in less than 10mins she had a glue gun and some gorilla glue. A few minutes later, another employee came with super glue. I was so surprised that a few minutes later, I had two functioning shoes that held up for two hours of dancing! So grateful Ms.Bowman was working last night. Many thanks! Aside from that, the staff overall was friendly, the food was fantastic (a good blend of adult and kid friendly items), the venue was nice, and there were crafts and a photo area for the kids that didn’t want to dance the whole time. Thank you and we look forward to coming back next year!

To be so expensive to stay the service should never be an issue. The decor is amazing, very pretty property but I doubt I’d stay again.Would consider coming back in the summer to experience the outside activities and spa.
