Only stayed for one night unfortunately, would have loved to spend more time here. The hotel is in a brilliant location right in the centre of Ambleside. The room was comfortable and spotless. The reception staff were friendly & really helpful. Breakfast was really good with plenty of choice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel and hopefully I will... More

Booked in for a Sunday night following a very disappointing stay at another hotel the previous night. The Salutation is like coming home, we do visit quite regularly and always find the staff and the facilities wonderful. This time we had a club room on the first floor, newly refurbished and absolutely gorgeous! Big walk out terrace overlooking the front... More

Our first visit to the Salutation Hotel in beautiful Ambleside was a perfect choice for affordable luxury, comfort and peace. Situated in the heart of this little town, the hotel and staff were most welcoming and our room (116) was spotlessly clean, spacious and well-situated, looking onto the hillside, from a private balcony. Car parking was tight but we managed... More

Having stayed at the Salutation on many occasions we couldn't think of anywhere better to hold our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration. So with family and friends we had a fabulous three day stay including our "Party Night". From the first phone call to reserve our rooms which included singles, doubles and club rooms and then answering my numerous emails and... More

We booked directly with the hotel and got a price for 5 nights £100 cheaper than the agencies were offering 4 nights. Then we got upgraded at the hotel to a Club room, which was lovely. Wifi worked well, breakfasts were superb and the staff were really friendly. Car parking can be a problem but we managed to get a... More

Good rooms and service, varied restaurant menu, parking adequate and there always seemed to be a staff member around to help when space got a bit tight. Location in centre of Ambleside excellent for shops and access to walks, plus on site spa, hairdresser and pool was a pleasant change from earlier camping holidays in same area.

My wife and I enjoy hiking in the Lakes, and Ambleside is a great central location for accessing all corners of the national park. We had stayed at the Salutation a few years ago and decided to come back here as we knew we had a good time before. This time we were on the second floor in a quiet... More

I stayed here for one night and found all of the staff to be very friendly from check-in to check-out. I was able to get a space in the car park, spaces are tight and I would recommend thinking of how you are going to drive out as you park. If you reverse in it may take a little effort... More

Great stay for our one night stay. Everything was perfect. Very pleasant staff, clean hotel. Very comfy night in an amazing room and fantastic breakfast. Easy parking. Highly recommend to anyone. Our room was next to the Carpark but was very peaceful.
