“A superb weekend”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

The staff where excellent, the bedroom was very nicely decorated, the food was excellent, the lounge areas were a joy to sit in and to top it all the decafe coffee was fresh. We also used the swimming pool and thought that it was an excellent facility including good showers. A weekend visit which was superb in every way. We hope to come again.

We came to the salutation spa as part of our trip to Ambleside, it was absolutely perfect. Nowhere would have been better. The hot tub was the highlight and the jacuzzi and pool were fantastic. The steam room, sauna and rainfall shower were all closed the day we visited but this did not take away from our day and it remained perfect!

Thank you for your review, I agree the hot tub is a must! Our Spa facilities have really been a major addition to the hotel and it sounds like you had a great day, despite the sauna and steam room out of action. Please accept my sincere apologies for that- all up and running now. Hope you can call in on your next visit.

Visited in the worst snow of the year and the hotel did everything to make our stay comfortable and amazing! Leisure facilities top-notch and restaurant amazing.
We received a free room upgrade and would really recommend staying in the lodges outside the hotel they are beautiful and give some privacy. Will be back!

This is the second time myself and my other half have stayed at the ambleside salutation and it did not disappoint. Staff always have a smile and a very helpful and friendly. Lovely surroundings, brilliant hotel and all together a lovely stay again. The only niggle that I had was the ceiling / floor was slightly thin and we could here the guests above us walking and talking. Never mind we still had a lovely stay and will be returning again next year if not sooner. Thank you again!

Thank you for your review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay and birthday celebrations . Your compliments about our food, facilities, friendly staff are really very much appreciated. I'm so pleased you had a lovely stay. Will look into the sound proofing- the buildings date back to the 16th century so perhaps we need to re vamp the floor boards! Look forward to welcoming back really soon.

Sitting in one of the comfort able seating areas at the salutation is just one of the best experiences a hotel can offer.
We were here again this time to celebrate my Fiancé s birthday. We were given an upgrade as soon as we arrived- what a pleasant surprise. The room was immaculate having a lovely big bathroom and power shower!.
Evening meal was delicious and breakfast was beautifully cooked. The selection is always varied and well presented.
A loyalty card is given if you return and we had a discount of £10 on our evening meal.
We will be back again very soon. Just love this hotel. Thanks to all for making our stay so memorable :)
