A note about Salterns Reopening

Dear Customer,

We are thrilled to confirm we are reopening our hotel, bar and restaurant on the 4th July. Our team is already working hard to prepare everything ready for you and to implement all safety measures set up by the government.

Due to social distancing we removed a few tables from our bar and restaurant and therefore our capacity has slightly been reduced, however as we have an extensive outdoor area we are also able to offer you a safe environment on those sunny and warm days, when the number of customers increases.

If you have any questions, please contact us on reception@salterns-hotel.co.uk or on 01202 707321.

We cannot wait to see you all again and welcome you in our beautiful surroundings for a relaxing stay, a meal or a drink whilst soaking up on one of the most privileged sea view venues in our area!
