My husband and I recently spent a long weekend at this hotel. Our room was clean and comfortable and we loved the added touches of a balcony and the whirlpool bath..This was very much needed after a long day walking! There was a good choice for breakfast too! The hotel is very well placed to explore Ambleside and the surrounding... More

I was traveling with my wife and six friends around Scotland. After six nights at three other venues the B W Salutation was very welcome. The hotel is centrally located in the town. Room sizes were sufficient with comfortable beds and good showers, though separate hot and cold faucets were the norm (as is the case in many hotels in... More

Stayed here with a large party of work colleagues. The location is ideal, right in the centre of town, close to all essential amenities, shops, pubs and restaurants. The rooms were clean and immaculately kept. What made the stay so enjoyable were the staff, from the cleaning staff early in the morning, reception and waiting staff right up to the... More

Where do I start? To be honest booked very last minute for a nice night away with the man so was limited to choice. The only room left here was a Lodge room which was a bit more than what I wanted to pay but thought, going off other reviews, it should be worth it. Well was it ever! The... More

We have recently returned from a relaxing break at the Salutation Hotel. Our room on the first floor had modern furniture including a very comfortable bed,good sized bathroom with spa / whirlpool bath. Our balcony gave us great views of the countryside and busy Ambleside , very nice to sit there and relax with a coffee people watching. Very good... More

An excellent Hotel! The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. There was a lovely big bath in the en-suite and a large balcony area, which was secluded and had the added attraction of a running stream nearby. The food in the restaurant was very good - the buffet and cooked breakfast was more than adequate and the evening meal... More

I have lost count of how many nights I have stayed at 'The Sally' over the past 4 + years, mostly with business, however, a few leisure stays with my girlfriend too; The bottom line is that the hotel, it's rooms, it's staff and it's breakfast have become a standard that I judge other accommodation by... the standard of what...

Was struggling to find anywhere in Kendal and Windermere area, so ended up in Ambleside. Glad I booked The Salutation! Nice room ( Todd Crag room) with balcony, external hot tub, table and chairs. Inside small lounge area, excellent bathroom, large comfy bed and good décor and fixtures. Wi-Fi worked well too. Although this was the first week in June... More

The hotel is very appealing, good access and parking on arrival. The lift is a bit snug for a wheelchair user but manageable. We can not fault the choice and quality at breakfast, top marks for that. We didn't use the restaurant or bar facilities here, being in the centre of Ambleside there are many choices of watering holes and... More
