My family and I recently stayed two nights at the Salomons Estate, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As others have previously noted, the web site is a little bit misleading because it does not mention that hotel accommodations are not in the main house, which effectively implies that they might be. In fact the rooms are in nearby but separate modern buildings, and are small but nicely appointed with everything you might need. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, and we particularly enjoyed our breakfasts, which although presented as a buffet were freshly cooked in small batches, and very nicely done. Guests have free access to the grounds, and these are remarkably beautiful with a wide expanse of lawn, a picturesque lake with fish, ducks and geese, and we enjoyed walking through the adjoining woods which were full of bluebells at the time of our visit. We were delighted to recognise several giant sequoia trees in the grounds, and while these are not yet nearly as massive as those found in California they easily dwarf the other trees on the estate. We were also interested by the little museum, and spent a happy 45 minutes in there reading all about the remarkable Salomon family. We would strongly recommend this reasonably priced hotel, and plan on staying there again when we are next in the UK.
