The Salutation Hotel goes on the market for £5m a year after insolvency


The hotel made famous by former Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker has gone up for sale with a £5m price tag.

The Salutation in Kent closed its doors in January 2020 and entered into Creditors’ Voluntary Liquidation in March with all bookings at the 17-bedroom hotel and restaurant cancelled.

The business was being run by John Fothergill who had a five-year lease with owners Steph and Dom Parker, stars of the popular Channel 4 show.

Now the pair have brought the Queen Anne style 17-bedroom Grade-I listed property to market.

They first acquired the manor house in 2004 for £2.6m and turned it into a hotel after finding fame with Googlebox.

Fothergill had been running it with his wife Dorothy since 2016.

A refurbishment project saw the bedrooms redesigned and the reconfiguration of the ground floor into a new space for dining, drinks and afternoon tea.

The kitchen was also relocated to the north wing under a glass atrium.

The mansion was designed in 1911 by renowned British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.
