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.

Dog owners beware. This is a dog tolerant hotel not a dog friendly hotel. There is a £20 charge per dog per stay but no facilities are provided for you. Dogs are not allowed in the dining areas and they are not permitted to be in the rooms on their own. If you are a solo traveller with dogs, you... More

Thank you for your recent comment and I was sorry to hear that you felt we had not lived up to our usual standard of friendliness and welcoming to both our human guests and our four legged friends and being a dog owner myself I will be in great trouble with my beloved Labrador ‘Stoli’. As a hotel that provides... More

Stay here three times a year as the food, staff, spa and accommodation are first class and it really feels like home. All the staff are friendly and want you to enjoy yourself! Location is brilliant with bus stops, taxis and shops all close by. We hardly ever use the car once parked! Try for a front room with balcony!

Nothing but good things to say. Staff friendly and helpful. Food good and well presented. If I were being VERY picky I would say the room was a tad small and service in the dining room could be patchy. Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

Check in was quick and efficient, we were directed to our room, which was comfortable and spacious. I'd paid for wine and chocolates in our room due to it being my husbands birthday, it was lovely to see that these were displayed for us and also for there to be a birthday card from the hotel for him. A small... More
