We went here for afternoon tea as we had been given the voucher as a gift. We would go again, the hotel was in lovely surroundings and the food, which consisted of sandwiches 3 different fillings, cakes with plentiful choices, and scones and butter, jam and cream. The tea was buffet style but nothing ran out, the tea itself had choices of different teas and coffees. Well worth a visit not the cheapest afternoon tea but well worth the price, we will go again definitely. Excellent choice of hotel if visiting the lakes. Ambleside itself is a lovely place not far from Windermere.

We had a voucher for an afternoon tea and decided to use it in this warm, comfortable and rather old-style hotel. The service was efficient. We were seated in a room with several other tables - each with groups of people round them enjoying the tea. We were offered a menu with an excellent variety of teas which were served in old fashioned tea pots, with strainers - wonderful.
The food itself was a help yourself buffet served in another room - sandwiches, savouries, scones, pastries and cakes. All delicious.
If I have one constructive comment to make it would be that I would have preferred to have been brought a selection of things to eat to the table where we were sitting. This would have a) stopped me eating quiet so much! but more importantly b) would have negated the need to be constantly getting up and going through to the next room to help yourself to the next item from the buffet. It made it feel rather a disjointed and rushed affair and it was this that stopped it being a really first class and relaxing experience.
However I enjoyed it and would go again.

Aside from the brilliant service and phenominal scenery, Rothay Manor exemplifies impeckable attention to detail! From the room to the food at dinner and everything in between, this hotel never ciezed to illustrate the right way to run a business. The rooms are very spacious and come with a porch! The food is excellent at the restaurant, but above all the lamb stands out (that's what I had and it is by far the best lamb I've had and in my top 15 favorite meals for sure). Furthermore I must say that everyone on staff I encountered was nice and eager to help. Overall this hotel made my trip to England and Scotland even better by offering something that many hotels struggle with nowadays: A since of being at home. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the whole of the England (other than London.) Just a once in a lifeime oppurtunity!

Room Tip: It's hard to go wrong with a room here!

Atmospheric, warm and comfortable - possibly more suited to golden couples than families with young children. A little like something out of an Agatha Christie novel - but no Miss Marple when we stayed !

The hotel and staff know what they do well and they stick to it, so no innovations in boutique style or elaborate dining. If you're at home in the Lake District, you'll probably feel at home in the hotel. If you're looking Paris chic - not the style here.

I booked afternoon tea and a nights stay for my mums birthday at the hotel. The reception on arrival was really friendly, as were all the staff. Our room was spacious and comfortable with everything provided, even things you wouldn't think of such as shoe shine kits! The afternoon tea was delicious and the variety was brilliant. The price of the afternoon tea was great, very good value for money. You can tell everything is handmade which just adds to the charm. The hotel provides complimentary use of the Salutation Hotel Gym and Pool facilities which added extra comfort and relaxation. The bar in the hotel offered a range of drinks for a good price, which could then be enjoyed in one of 2 lounges with sofas and chairs in a tranquil environment. The breakfast provided at the hotel was also delicious with another large selection of food and it thoroughly deserves its rating for excellence. I would 100% recommend the hotel to others and will definitely be going for afternoon tea again.
