This was a delightful experience, Sandwich is a delightful little town with a lovely restaurant nearby in the George and Dragon. The hotel is historic yet beautifully kept, the Henry room was spacious and characterful with a massive bathroom and the breakfast was very well executed and served with professionalism. A great short stay!

It's a beautiful grade 1 listed building. So bucket loads of charm . Our room ' Edwin ' was spacious , clean and comfortable. It even overlooked the gardens. The staff were great not checking up on you every 5 mins . The Salutation doesn't have a restaurant at the moment so it just provides breakfast. Though local eateries are...

We stayed here for two nights, the whole place looked like it hadn't been cleaned, the oatmeal on the floor of the dining room was there when we arrived and still there when we left; as were the full ashtrays on the table on the terrace. Our room was a nice size but there was mould in the shower and...

Considering that the cottage could accommodate 6 people there were only 4 cups & although there is a kitchen there are no pots & pans & saucepans had...

Booked a room as a treat. For the price we paid I was disappointed. Building and room looked tired. Room was a good size and bed comfy, heater was faulty and tv was tiny by today's standards. Drinks at the bar are very expensive considering your spending over £230 for a room. Breakfast was ok but again not £230 worth....
