A gem of a hotel. Gorgeous interior in all the rooms. We were upgraded to a club room, which was beautiful as well as comfortable. We peaked our heads into a couple other rooms, and any one of them would have been just as great. Very nice and modern leisure and exercise facilities, and breakfast was fantastic. We couldn't have asked for more.

We live fairly near and so have often travelled past this hotel without thinking it looked anything special. However, we were invited by friends to join them there for a night. We were totally surprised. Plenty of facilities, a really great friendly staff and a superb comfortable room. Our dogs were also made welcome. We did not dine there but the breakfast was great and the cooked food individually prepared. Thoroughly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a Club Room with balcony. The extra is worth it.

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.
