Only actually stopped in this hotel a couple of times but we use it most weekendsfor afternoon/evening drinks. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and modern. The food in the restaurant is excellent with the best breakfast in the Lakes! We haven't used the spa but the swimming pool and hot tub are very welcoming after a day of climbing...

We stayed here for a 4 night break and found the hotel excellent in every respect. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfortable. All staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the town and were able to recommend local walks. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in a hotel and the evening meals were tasty...

Room was better than expected for single occupancy and bed very comfortable. Balcony was a lovely extra I hadn't anticipated. Used spa bath in parents rooms which was heavenly. Jacuzzi outside was amazing, could've spent my entire day in there. Lovely wide range of food for breakfast and dinner. We ate there each morning and most evenings, with great service...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a really lovely time. The Hotel is fantastic and the staff were great throughout from helping us to find somewhere to park to checking us out at the end of our stay. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was delicious and the staff really attentive and friendly

This place does stand out looking at the exterior but once inside is looks great and is very comfortable. Booked one of the suite rooms and was not disappointed. The room had a nice view overlooking the river and had a hot tub on the balcony. Leisure facilities were very good and very clean. Little bit on the pricey side...

Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely friendly staff. Rooms are amazingly comfortable and the spa is such a treat after a long walk. We had a fabulous view of the hills from the window too. Will be back as soon as I can.

Hotel is fantastic and will stay again. Staff generally excellent but breakfast service was very slow and difficult to get any attention. Excellent room and really enjoyed use of Leisure facilities. Really well positioned for Ambleside shopping.

I think the Salutation Hotel is the perfect place for a nice quiet break. If you're an early bird (like me) you can get the lovely pool and hot tub almost entirely to yourself ; and the breakfasts are guaranteed to set you up for the rest of the day. Ambleside can be quite bustling sometimes these days ; but...
