"Lovely luxury with a touch of TV glamour!"
A wonderful destination in the lovely town of Sandwich and a great opportunity to see the setting for one of our favourite programmes and favourite characters. Very friendly and helpful staff (all very young and no apparent Manager) Sadly the hosts were away. There are beautiful gardens, a small shop and tea room. We stayed just the one night and ate in the restaurant, which was very well coordinated, although the menu was a little limited in its choices. Breakfast was fantastic though. Read less
Likes:
The comfortable, relaxed atmosphere and a well stocked bar! Great food too and we loved the Jeckyll bedroom suite. A nice luxurious treat.
Dislikes:
Shame the hosts were not there. The dinner menu was a little limited and ordinary. Service was good though.

"Unusual but fantastically enjoyable."
We stayed for one night in St. George's room. We had drinks before dinner in the sitting room and returned there after dinner at The King's head. We had breakfast at 9am spent the day in Canterbury then came back to The Salutation to meet friends we'd made there the previous evening for a drink. Read less
Likes:
We loved the casual friendly atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for Tigger and he went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable, easy and enjoyable as possible. The room and garden was lov
Dislikes:
Had to request a couple of things twice. That's all. Xx

"What was meant to be a special treat turned out to be a disappointing shambles."
Arrived at 6pm and unprofessional and disorganised first impression of manager. Unhappy to find that our room was not in the main house. Also, not ensuite which is not clear from description given on website. Only one dressing gown despite twin room. No tea making facilities in room. Advised could use kitchen 2 floors down which had 1 mug and 3 old cups. Breakfast average. Quiet, uncomfortable atmosphere. Nobody around in reception to check out with so just left key. Read less
Likes:
Clean room, antique furniture, view of beautiful gardens (besides the birdsong, observed 2 foxes playing on the lawn early am before anyone was up which made me appreciate how special this place is).
Dislikes:
The reception we got on arrival was unprofessional and made my daughter and I feel very uncomfortable. The lack of a private bathroom and tea making facilities in our room was unacceptable.

Originally named after an inn that stood within the grounds, the main house is supported by Knightrider House, The Coach House and Gardener's Cottage. Having been hidden and neglected for over a decade, there has been a considerable renovation programme carried out on both the house and its gardens which are now open to the public.

Set within the town and adjacent to the River Stour, surrounded by three-and-a-half acres of delightful Lutyens and Jekyll gardens and almost entirely encircled by the old city walls of Sandwich, the house is afforded a remarkable level of privacy.

Accommodation within reflects the integrity of the house and gardens with unmatched decadence and a truly world class feel to each room. Like a fine claret leaving you with a rounded after-taste, our rooms are tailored for the connoisseur.
