We have just returned from the Salutaion after yet another very pleasent stay. As it was my birthday we treated ourselves to a club room. The little extras which this includes were very welcome. As always we received a warm welcome from all the staff . Breakfast was the usual feast setting us up for the day. We didn't eat in the hotel in the evening this time but that was only because we ate out during the day and were not hungry in the evenings. My husband left his book in the bedside drawer when we left yesterday morning and only discovered it was missing late last night. This morning I rang reception who called back shortly afterwards to say that housekeeping had found the book and they would be sending it on to us. Just the sort of service we have come to expect from The Salutaion over the years. Well done to Paul, Sue and all 'the team.' Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: All the rooms are comfortable. Rooms at the fron have a better view although the traffic outside can...

We stayed with family in this lovely hotel. Service was faultless and the cooked to order breakfast so tasty. We made good use of the pool and spa facilities every day. Bedrooms were to a high standard equipped with everything you would need. We can't wait to go back soon

Simply a great hotel. Really can't believe it has a 3 star rating? Easily 4 star. The hot tub outside was a real treat. The breakfast in the morning was amazing, lovely figs and porridge followed by a full cooked breakfast. Perfect before a day on the fells. The location is again perfect.

Just about faultless. I often stay in Ambleside, but there were no single rooms available at my regular hotel so I booked a room at the Salutation and was well pleased. My room was upgraded (at no expense to me) and was delightful. They describe their breakfast as "award-winning" - I don't know what award that was, but it was well deserved. Evening meals were wonderful, reasonably priced, served in comfortable surroundings by pleasant staff and even at the busiest times there wasn't a long wait. I recommend the Salutation whole-heartedly.

This was the first time I had been to the Salutation Hotel, Ambleside, in fact it was the first time I had stayed in any of the Best Western Hotels. I cannot praise this hotel enough. The staff were lovely, the hotel was in a prime location in the centre of Ambleside. We had an evening meal from the Bistro Menu which was cooked to perfection, as was our full english breakfast. No running to the buffet for your breakfast it was served direct to your table. We got the last available room which was a Club Room and it was massive. The hotel has recently been refurbished so everything was pristine. We couldn't find a thing wrong with this hotel and enjoyed the whole experience, only wish we had the time to book two night!! Well Done we will be back again very soon.

Thank you so much so pleased you were impressed by our room, fab staff, location so central, and food. We have worked really hard with our menus and at breakfast we think that we have it almost all covered with the buffet selection but we still like to serve our cooked breakfast to order fresh from the kitchen. I hope you can managed to get away for a longer break with us again soon- we look forward to welcoming you back.

Cant rate this hotel highly enough. We stayed for DB&B and wasn't really expecting much as this is just a 3 star hotel. The hotel is fantastic, it is beautifully decorated and clean. Our room was perfect we even got a balcony, which was a lovely surprise. The staff we very attentive and very professional. The spa was amazing we had it to ourselves, best steam room we have ever been in.

The meal in the evening was lovely and breakfast was amazing.

We have gone to the same spa hotel in the north east every year for the past 5 years, we thought we had found our dream hotel.....until we discovered the Sautation...we'll not be going back to the other one now and cant wait to come back here year after year.
