Very nice pool and spa,and a well equipped gym. Great location right in the centre of Ambleside,but no noise from outside, so had a good sleep each... More

Last time I wrote a review of the Salutation I made one or two small criticisms but on this return visit the reasons for them had disappeared. This is now a wonderful hotel. For a start, everybody from the joint managers Sue and Paul down were very friendly and could not do enough to make our stay a marvellous one.... More

Have just returned from a long weekend 50th Birthday trip for the wife to the Salutation. The booking process was straight forward through the Best Western site and the site photo's truly represented the hotels rooms and facilities that we encountered. We booked the Woodlands suit which is a stand alone apartment that doesn't look much from the outside but... More

We just liked the look of the place on a recent visit so we went in for an evening meal, we were not guests but they made us feel welcome, it was very clean and tidy, the staff were very good and the food, wine and service were all excellent, we would go again.

I have always had some reservations about the Best Western hotels but my views have thoroughly transformed after my recent stays in some of them. I had a fantastic stay, the room was nicely decorated, the bathroom was fantastic, I even had a jacuzzi bath tub. The staff were polite and the breakfast was cooked to order so fresh and... More

Staff most helpful.Only downside is parking is at first come first served, but for a price you can reserve a parking spot. Very central location for Ambleside and pool,spa facilities great.Another little niggle was that... More

We just used the Spa facilitities, thanks to a special deal from Lakelovers (the company we booked our self-catering cottage with). Staff were very friendly & helpful, pool/sauna/hot-tub/changing rooms were all just as you would wish. Unpretentious, spotless, relaxing! We particularly enjoyed soaking in the outdoor hot-tub, in a gentle drizzle.

Probably the biggest strength of this hotel is the friendliness of the staff, which is often lacking in hotel chains. We have visited for lunch several times but not stayed before. On every occasion staff have always been very welcoming. Our room was very spacious with great views of Loughrigg and the Fairfield Horseshoe. We also had a balcony with... More

We stayed here 4th-7th April, The hotel itself is modern but with some classic touches situated in the centre of Ambleside. We were lucky enough to stay in the Rothay room and it didnt disappoint, the room itself was very well presented , with the extra luxury of the hot tub on the balcony, and the views were great. We...
