I have been to this hotel several times and love the location and the quality. Set right in the midst of Ambleside with wonderful view of the fells, fine restaurant and bar together with a great spa. What more could you ask for! We enjoyed a fabulous breakfast, huge portions and an excellent choice of food, we also dined one... More

Stayed in the langdale suite which is new extremely spacious room. It also has a private hot tub on the balcony outside. Lovely bathroom although the shower could do with soap tray. The window above the patio doors could do with a blind. In January it's not too bright but I imagine come summer the light will come straight through... More

We stayed one night in the Salutation. Great on site parking, pool and breakfast. Although, our room was along a corridor that was being redecorated. We had to walk over dust sheets, around ladders and listen to the noise early in the morning. We did not ask to be moved as our room it's self was still very nice.

For many Christmases until snowy 2010 my wife and I enjoyed Christmas at the "Sally". This Christmas we spent five nights over Christmas at what is undoubtedly our favourite hotel and enjoyed good food, warm comfort and lively and appropriate entertainment, as well as the pleasure of seeing again staff we have known for many years and some guests we...

Thank you for your kind words and for returning back to the hotel to spend another Christmas with us. I certainly agree 'Geoffrey Horatio Atkinson' runs an extremely good ship and has guided us around many a iceberg. I was sorry to read that your stay had been slightly marred by the hotels dog policy and I agree dogs are... More

Our fourth stay here and as always it was fantastic, the hotel, staff, location are beyond compare, can't wait to go back, we always go early in the year as a dip in the hot tub on a cold and frosty evening always ends the day perfectly

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. It is a dog friendly hotel and our wuffs were welcomed in the hotel everywhere aside from the pool and the restaurant - which is very understandable. We'll be going again.

We have visited Ambleside many times but never ventured into the Salutation, we have missed a treat, we initially booked 2 nights but extended it by 1 ,this meant a room change, but we need not have worried, from the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome, we chose the dinner bed & breakfast option as we know...
