It's hard to believe that this resort is located only 1.5 hours from DC. The grounds are beautiful and the view from our 4th floor estate king was magnificent. Overall the room was comfortable and very spacious. However, it is quite pricier and I can't justify it unless you are visiting in the summer and can take advantage of some of the outdoor activities. They add a resort fee as well! Food was good but it took forever to get seated for one of our meals. My biggest problem (hence the 2 stars rating) is that they couldn't retrieve some personal items that I left in the room. I emailed the hotel no more than 3 hours after I checked out. And yet I was told that neither housekeeping nor the security department had located any items and that there was nothing left in the room. Extremely disappointing! They either tossed them out or misplaced them. When my husband left his much beloved sweatshirt in the Four Seasons New York, they immediately found it and mailed it back to us. Now that's service.
Superior resort with beautiful facilities and grounds; excellent staff and food. Relaxed luxury at its best! This was my 4th stay in 5 years. If you want refined beauty and relaxation this is the place for you. I can’t say enough good things about it!
We’ve done a couple of corporate retreats here and have been pleased. The staff has taken care of us and the facilities are nice. The food was good for the meals that we have on site and the bar staff does a nice job in the evening. The rooms are nice and well cared for. The resort seems to have a lot of activities and the nearby town is cool.
I took my wife here to celebrate her fiftieth birthday. It was disappointing. The food service staff were truly indifferent and very hard to find. During multiple meals we had to go find staff for a refill or to get the check. One breakfast my wife ordered a dish that came out with black beans ( was not listed on menu). 45 minutes after we got the food was first time they came to check on us. They asked if she wanted it packaged and I explained she did not want it bc of beans. In essence his response was ok and he walked off. The bell/ greeters were amazing and exceeded our expectations as did the spa staff. The last night we were there the fire alarm went off at 1:15 AM. It was cool and raining. We stood outside for 42 minutes until a staff member opened the door. At no time during or after did the staff say or do anything. The next morning when I made note as we were Che king out about lack of communication the clerk helping us said it was a fire drill. We did see firemen walking around the building, so I question the veracity of that statement. We went off season for Sunday through Tuesday. If you don’t want to eat and you go high season it might be better. For us it was 2 star service at five star pricing. Caveat Emptor
Salamander was beautiful and clean. The service was not bad, just not like you would expect for the price. A regular Marriott tends to be much better and I would say the Salamander has the potential to offer a much more personalized experience.
We enjoyed a weekend here. The staff is friendly and attentive for the most part. The ground are well kept and the rooms are clean and spacious and well appointed. The spa was excellent and the pool there is relaxing as are the other spa facilities. The main downside is the price for what they offer. Not only are the rooms expensive but they hit you with a $39 per night resort fee which gets you an average pool and a decent gym and not much else. This was never disclosed till check out/ Also, $18 per valet night for parking is a bit much, again not mentioned till you check out. I have been to many resorts in this class and they are a better value and experience. i would not recommend or return unless you could get a much lower price then they charge.
Great hotel and place to stay not sure you get value for money in regards to prices but you cannot fault the hotel. I ran around the resort which was fun and there are lots of things to do. There was a function on when I was there which stopped some of the access to parts but that's business.
We booked 3 nights at the salamander resorts and spa at Middleburg VA and left after staying only 2 nights. We were feeling uncomfortable, annoyed. We were staying in many places around the world so if I compare with the other great resorts we have been staying for weeks at a time, I would nicely rate the salamander resort an average score -
The Salamander Resort & Spa is just outside of DC, but you feel like you are in the country, surrounded by beautiful pastures and vineyards. The property is beautiful and well maintained. You feel like you are home when you walk through the front doors of the hotel. The staff is professional, friendly and attentive. I would recommend this Resort to anyone who wants a truly wonderful experience.
Highly recommend staying elsewhere. If you want to pay a fortune for no room service, argumentative staff and mediocre food, book here. If you expect a 5-star experience, look elsewhere. Over the course of a 2-day / 2-night trip, we received no room cleaning, no turndown service, nothing. When raised as an issue, we were told we refused service (this happened exactly 1 time at 9am in the morning Saturday) therefore they skipped our room for the weekend. We had to call and ask for waters and an extra towel to shower our last morning. Disappointing for almost $1,200 / 2 night stay. There has to be better options elsewhere and I recommend looking for them before booking here!
