A beautiful building in amazingly beautiful grounds in an idyllic Kentish town with the best staff to welcome you, take you to your room and serve you food and drinks! Our room was also wonderfully quaint with views over the garden and river. Bed was enormous and so comfortable. The only minor things were in the bathroom... no toilet roll...

We stayed at The Salutation whilst on a golfing trip in Sandwich and Deal. The The property is actually an English Manor house converted into a top notch hotel. The reception formalities were swift and we were individually shown our rooms. I was assigned a room on the third level in the main house. There were no lifts but we...

A lovely birthday treat, and very quiet mid week. Under new management and post refurb in the main house, the friendly staff are keen to impress and improve service wherever they can. A restaurant is on its way and we're looking forward to going back. The cooked breakfasts are already delicious, however, but one odd thing was thin, coldish toast...

I stayed in the Gardeners Cottage at The Salutation over my wedding last weekend and it was absolutely perfect in every way. The staff were so attentive and made myself and my bridal party feel so special - from little things like printing out my wedding speech for me on the morning of the wedding, to decorating our room on...

We arrived a bit early and were told our cottage was not quite ready but it would be in an hour, which was fine as we had had a long drive down so we took our dog for a walk and got some lunch after about an hour and a quarter we went back to be told it was still...

Our room, in fact Gardeners Cottage, cannot be faulted. Fully equiped and was a nice touch to find milk in the fridge, and tea/coffee all available. Beds were very comfortable. The gardens are beautiful as is Sandwich itself. Sadly, it goes downhill and the whole experience is spoiled by what can only be described as an utter shambles! No organisation,...

We came here just to see the gardens and were so captivated we decided to stay the night. What an excellent spontaneous decision! The manager could hardly have been more friendly and helpful. He showed us two beautiful rooms and we chose GERTRUDE and attic room full of charm with lovely views over the garden. I had come unprepared with...

We spent one night at The Salutations and it felt like we were away for a week. The house is so restful, so chic, the gardens a delight. We were given the William room which was amazing. The biggest bed, luxury linen, huge bathroom, lovely toiletries, soft fluffy towels. The staff were absolutely amazing and nothing was too much trouble....

No regrets about choosing the Salutation for my birthday treat. An amazing building and gardens that are truely enchanting. Staff were all dedicated and charming as more than willing to sort out some query needs. Can't really give 5 stars as the plumbing in our en suite had an inexplicable fault hence no hot water and overall poor heating. Great...

Stunning house, set in beautiful gardens in the heart of Sandwich. We stayed for 2 nights in a large room called Gertrude, recently refurbished, with modern walk in shower and huge bed. Homemade shortbread left in room with the tea and coffee facilities. Lovely views of the gardens out of double aspect windows. Breakfast on both morning s was superb...
