The high quality of the furniture and food The constant fighting of dogs in the sitting area, hallways, and lobby. This resort is TOO dog-friendly. Guests are allow to have their dogs in these areas. The dogs constantly bark at other dogs, the couches reap of dog smells, and the dogs constantly smelling other guests. Anyone allergic to dogs definitely need to STAY AWAY from this resort.
I cannot tell you how wonderful your staff really is! They are so attentive, friendly, helpful, and treated us so nicely., The concierge was GREAT!!!! The staff made our stay perfect. No big deal - but the light bulbs in the ceiling fixture were burned out. Also you might give information to guests about how to dim or brighten the light in the bathroom. Took us forever to figure it out. After calling down...we found the little place on the fixture to move to brighten the light.
Loved the peaceful charm, beautiful views, multitude of activities, and equestrian theme of the hotel. Staff is extremely nice and helpful. Guest rooms are superb and located far enough away from the pools, tennis courts, etc so that they are quiet. We took advantage of several activities at the resort, and loved sitting outside on the back terrace. About a 15 min walk into downtown Middleburg, which is highly recommended to check out the local shops and restaurants. Biggest drawback is the expense. For a 2 night stay, including zip line tour, massages, and meals at the resort (for which we had Travelzoo coupons), we spent about $2000. Would love to be able to enjoy the resort more often, but just not financially possible for us to do so.
The Salamander resort provided a wonderful site to reconnect with my family as our daughter was home for spring break. We even brought our pup along and she got the royal treatment -- greeted with a doggy treat, photo op and placement in a patio room with easy access to the walking trails. The resort location was ideal. It's one of the few resorts that's a short drive from our home - so traveling in didn't take away from relaxation time at the spa, on grounds for a trail ride or taking in a swim. The cooking classes were also a great bonding event. There were a number of onsite activity promotions offered to those booking through the resort or from independent dealers like Groupon. I wish your online booking would partner up and extend these perks as options when reserving online.
