Nearly everything about this hotel was excelent. I refer to the breakfast in my title because it is probably the best hotel breafast I have ever had. There is a choice of just about everything one could think of from around Europe & the quality of the food was superb. The full English has everything too & is perfectly cooked, presented & served. The hotel itself is lovely too. I have been visiting Ambleside for too many years to mention. The Salutation was allowed to get a bit run down a few years ago but what a great job has been done on it now! It looks the part from the outside & inside is just as good. There is a nice little bar & Bistro with loads of seating on the ground floor. Downstairs is the gym, pool & spa, which is also excelent & free for guests. Our room was very well appointed with everything in it that you would want. It was, however, a little on the small side. It only had a double bed, rather than king size but it was exceptionally comfortable. The service we received from all the staff was excelent. Good value for money too. Not much more than the local B & B's yet with so much more to offer. I will definately make this place my first choice when staying in Ambleside again.
Front of the hotel overlooks the town & has the best views.
