Have stayed at the hotel and visit at Christmas each year. The accomodation is comfortable and well maintained. My family eat here quite regularly and sometimes just call in for a coffee or a drink. Highly recommended and very well situated in the centre of Ambleside.

Back to the salutation in December, and we were worried it might have lost some of its efficiency, or charm because of our visit being in the off season. But this was not the case. The team were friendly, efficient, and welcoming, just as we had found them in June. Our hotel room was well equipped, spacious and very comfortable.... More

As a student visiting a former girl friend who was in train college in Ambleside I couldn't afford to go to the Salutation Hotel but some 40 odd years later I now have and think the experience was well worth waiting for. A nice comfortable elegant hotel located in the centre of Ambleside serving good quality meals and with delightful... More

7 family members on a 60th birthday weekend. We managed to check in early. Yeahhhhhh. From arriving to leaving the staff could not do enough and always with a smile. We managed to get the last three rooms, one in hotel and two across in the annex. We had a room overlooking the side road and was fabulous. The huge... More

This was not my first visit to the Salutation and will not be my last. This was a very pleasant stay with friendly, obliging staff and excellent facilities. From the minute we checked in we were warmly welcomed and asked how they could help to make our stay even better. Our room was clean, comfortable and well fitted out. We... More

I've used the Salutation for many years and have stayed often on both business and pleasure, the whole "package" works very well, a comfortable hotel. I'll have to make a little more time for myself in which to try the spa or the outdoor hot tub. I prefer the rooms in the annex at the rear of the car park,... More
