Ensconced within acres of award-winning gardens, the medieval town of Sandwich overbrimmed with history just beyond its old flint walls, The Salutation is at once a country retreat and a gateway to the vibrant and storied towns of the Kentish coast. Edwin Lutyens’ private-house masterpiece has been completely re-invigorated through successive restorations and now opens its doors as a luxury hotel, restaurant and gardens. Eat with us, drink with us, sleep with us. Stroll around our green paths and lose yourself in our herbaceous borders. Explore the area or never leave the grounds. Take Afternoon Tea on the terrace. Toast by the Drawing Room fire. Dine at the Chef’s Table. Wallow in Bed. Make yourself at home.

We stayed here at a quiet time where staff outnumbered the guests but we received amazing service and attention. The owners have carefully moulded an attentive and professional team of staff here and we couldn’t fault it. Rooms are to die for and although we only had breakfasts

We stayed in the Coach House which was perfect for us: spacious and quiet. The house is very beautiful and well conserved. The gardens are a real pleasure. The history notes in the room are very witty. We had an elaborate meal from the tasting menu, which was brilliantly and

Lovely hotel, with elegant rooms and public spaces. Delightful bar and sitting room, with very efficient and knowledgable yet discreet service. The gardens were past their best when we visited, but we will for sure return next summer to see then in their full glory. A
