A very pleasing stay. We were upgraded, free of charge, to a lodge room, with balcony overlooking the river. The rooms have quality fixtures and fittings. The only complaint was the hot temperature of the room, even in winter it was uncomfortable at times. Overall it is a hotel we would return to on other occasions.

We've just returned from a lovely weekend break with our dog. The hotel is excellent and in my view it should be given 4 stars! Only one slight criticism, although the hotel is dog friendly, you cannot dine in the lounge/bar area where dogs are welcome, however dogs can be left in your room. Although our dog is well behaved...

We were there August Bank Holiday Sunday. Lovely room overlooking Main Street with hills in the distant. Used the swimming pool spa area-nice but very busy. Lovely dinner. Drawbacks very small tight car park and room's roadside location meant we were woken very early by lorry outside with engine running. We will stay again

Just of late I've become something of a regular diner at the Salutation, with three visits in the past couple of months. I like the simple and uncomplicated menu though with quite an extensive range of dishes. Perhaps I like the Salutation so much because I'm a fan of those traditional dishes, meat and two or four vegetables. Naturally, I...
