First hotel stay with my dog and I was delighted. I understand the hotel has a small number of dog friendly rooms and not having stayed in hotel accommodation with him before I wasn't sure what to expect and feared sub standard accommodation. However, the room was superb, spacious, immaculately clean and modern with a small enclosed balcony. A blanket... More

Having stayed here before but awhile ago a few little standards have slipped and at a serious cost to stay could be addressed. After a 5hr drive was greeted by a glum receptionist who looked about as interested as nothing and talking about what she was doing Saturday night with the other receptionist. When asked to provide credit card and... More

Stayed for two nights for my boyfriends birthday, stayed in one of the Lakeland rooms with a private hot tub on the balcony. Lovely room and hotel, great spa facilities as well and perfect location in the centre of ambleside. Delicious breakfast and the staff couldn't do enough for you! Can't wait to stay again

Fantastic, friendly staff who looked after us really well. There was a travel cot for the baby and a blanket for the dog! My husband has arranged for the flowers but the view and balcony were an amazing surprise for us both. The food was great.

Just had another wonderful break at the Ambleside Salutation. We stayed in one of the Lakeland suites, It was excellent. All the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The food was delicious. We would certainly recommend the Ambleside Salutation. We booked again before we left!! Can't wait to return.

We stayed here for a couple of nights for a short break in March 2015, having stayed at the Salutation before in previous years, and once again only wish we could have stayed longer. The room we had on this occasion was absolutely excellent, enjoying an elevated, corner position in the main hotel giving views over both the town and... More

We stayed at the Salutation on a Sunday evening. We had a lodge room at the back of the hotel. Don't be put off if you get one of these rooms - they're lovely. Ours had a large balcony overlooking the beck at the back and it's only 10 yards across the car park to the main hotel. The leisure... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Salutation, and the high standards we experienced during our 1st stay are still in evidence. This time we stayed in the Woodlands lodge, which is not in the main hotel, for us this was not a problem. Our room had a modern contemporary feel, and was spotlessly clean, being used to a super...
