I am really annoyed with myself because for the past 10+ years I have been driving past the Ambleside Salutation Hotel on my way to stay in Bowness. I have not given the Salutation a second look because from the front it looked a bit small. In fact it is, as a member of staff said, a Tardis. Once through the entrance the place just expands and expands. I have nothing but praise for this hotel, every department was excellent. I must single out the restaurant for some extra praise. Some Best Western Hotels can be let down by the quality of the food and the service in the restaurants. Not so the Salutation it would be very hard to improve this restaurant. So no more driving through Ambleside. It will be more stays in Ambleside less stays in Bowness. A really enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Woodlands, sitting area comprising large screen tv, two sofas and coffee table. Large wet room with spa bath and large shower. separate bedroom with kingsize bed. All furnishing and decoration of a very high quality.

Thank you very much for your great review and compliments about the hotel. I'm so glad you came to stay with us and I agree we are a bit like a Tardis - people are often surprised how much space we have inside the hotel! We are always doing something new and will have two new Lakeland rooms at the rear of the hotel later in the year (we found some more space!). So I Iook forward to you visiting again soon thank you once again.

Than you very much for your review and I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay in one of our Lodge rooms and that you enjoyed our breakfast. We have a great location in the village with everything on our door step I hope we can welcome you back to stay again soon and perhaps sample the bar and our fantastic leisure facilities.

I have stayed here three times. In 2007, 2012 & 2013.This is a fabulous hotel. Great location in Ambleside with lots of shops and only a short distance from Windermere lake. The modern smart rooms are large, very clean and have all you need for a great break. The leisure facilities are lovely with a large pool, steam room, sauna, outdoor hot tub and indoor Jacuzzi. Great for the whole family with relaxing chairs round the pool and wi - fi. So Non swimmers can still be entertained. The food is fantastic and well worth trying. We ate in the bistro on both nights as it is excellent service and fare price. Breakfast is cooked to order. You help yourselves to the cold selection and pastries. If your on the mailing list you will receive offers and a lovely Christmas card with offers included. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Hope to return soon.

Room Tip: We have stayed in room 105 twice, (requested the second time) club room with king size bed and single bed. Robes and slippers.

'Top Class Hotel' - thank you! and thank you for taking the time to right such a complimentary review its much appreciated. So pleased you all enjoyed using our leisure facilities I agree it's a great area for everyone to chill out in. We are really blessed with our location within minutes you can be on the way to the Lake, half way up a fell or in a shop! Glad you liked your room and our breakfast selection, I think the choice something for everyone and dishes you can treat your selves to - after all you are on holiday! I look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the hotel soon.
