We have just returned from 3 nights at this hotel in the heart of a very busy Ambleside. The spa facilities of a great pool, sauna ( temp between 70 - 75) steam room and outside Canadian hot tub were excellent . I was the only person on several occasions using it before breakfast although you can get a day... More

We were not staying at the hotel, but were interested in staying here in the future. Bar staff useless, managed a grunt out of one lady/woman... one gentleman didn't understand what we were asking for, lager and lime? However the meal was lovely. Wouldn't stay at the hotel though. No welcome at all.

A little overpriced for what we had, lovely room, lovely breakfast, however on arrival we werent told anything about the leisure facilities, or where the dining room was or even what time breakfast was served. A little disappointed with... More

Just spent the Bank Holiday weekend at the Salutation with the family. Despite the age differences within our group the service and support from the staff was excellent, as were the meals, particular the willingness to accommodate the childrens requirements. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed and the visit to the swimming pool, sauna and hot tub is a... More

Recently took three night break with my husband and parents. As always, facilities and food excellent, staff friendly and helpful. Only slight criticism, is the lack of disabled access, particularly to leisure facilities, and within the room allocated. Have highlighted this directly with the hotel, and received a very prompt response. My husband and I have stayed several times at... More

Can't fault this hotel. Facilities are excellent. Pool, hot tub and spa facilities are an added bonus. From arrival at reception through to the restaurant staff, everyone was friendly and welcoming. Room was lovely-clean and cosy- recommend first floor with balcony as lovely views over Ambleside and nearby hills. Had a lovely relaxing break and will return.

We stayed with friends at The Salutation Hotel in The Lake District's Ambleside for 2 nights. The room was very good, the bed comfortable, the breakfast excellent with buffet starters and hot meal cooked to order and all served by the superb staff. We also had dinner in the hotel both nights with a tempting menu to choose from. The... More

I spent four nights here recently with a party of American garden lovers and misquoting Oscar Wilde, have nothing to report but excellent accommodation, good food and the most helpful and friendly service from the manager, the waiting staff and most of all, the reception team. I believe that there was a little difficulty between the hotel and the tour... More
