“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2010

Stayed with my 20 year old daughter. Arrived just after 9pm food service ended at 9pm, however when we asked about food the friendly reception staff asked if we we would like sandwiches as there was still a member of staff in the kitchen. Reception and breakfast service staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed using the leisure pool, sauna, steam room and hot tubs (one was outside) very relaxing. Good points are the hotel is very clean, we had a lovely room no. 202, very good breakfast, and free car parking. Bad points can't think of any. The Salutation would be my first choice next time I need a hotel in the Lake District.

Recently renovated the hotel has a large and comfortable lounge, bar and dining room. The breakfast was exceptional offering a buffet of fruit juice, fruit, meat, cheese cerial etc followed by a cooked breakfast as large or as small as you want. The basement has a great swimming pool and fitness area.

A lovely hotel. Staff were welcoming, the leisure facilities were excellent, very relaxing.
The room was fantastic, comfortable and very clean.
Its got to be said, we have never had a better breakfast, there was so much choice.
Overall, a great hotel and can't wait to go back.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay with our adult children and their partners, plus my sister and her husband. We were celebrating my 60th birthday and had a fantastic time. We took advantage of booking well in advance and saved loads. We were in club class rooms at the front of the hotel with fantastic views from the balconies. The staff at the hotel were so helpfull and very friendly. We had a meal in the bistro one night and it was great would certainly recommned the food here. Breakfast had a fantastic selection.
The girls all had treatments in the Spa attached to the hotel and were really impressed. We booked before the visit to make sure we had what we wanted. We also used the pool, hot tub etc each day, great after long walks. Car park great and the position of the hotel faultless. Great to be able to park the car and then just use public transprot or walk!
Lots of places to eat near to the hotel. We went out to the Drunken Duck near Tarn Hows for my birthday meal - lovely but very expensive!
Would recommend this hotel to anyone and hopefully we will return again soon.

We stayed a couple of nights on a walking holiday and were immediately impressed with the courteous and efficient Reception staff. Our Bedroom was spacious and well appointed. The entire Hotel was one of the cleanest I have ever been in. The standard of food is excellent - we stayed half board but there is also a very good and reasonably priced bistro menu. A remarkably large number of local people dining in the bistro - a very good sign, we thought. Bar service was again efficient and reasonably priced but the reason we chose this Hotel was because it has a swimming pool, which turned out to be large for a hotel pool, with jacuzzi, steam rooms, hot tub also full gym available and very good changing facilities, altogether worthy of a hotel with more stars. We wished we could have stayed longer.

We stayed here for two nights last week.
The welcome was warm and efficient - There is now a superb lift (elevator) -( I noticed that a reviewer had mentioned the lack of lift.)
Food was excellent, as was the spa facility. We really could not fault the Salutation

We received a warm welcome from very helpful and efficient staff; the building is in the centre of the town, is Victorian in its origins, but has undergone very tasteful refurbishment over the years. The whole ambience is relaxed. The dining room is large, beautifully decorated, and the breakfasts fulfil every need from the "Cumberland" to the continental. There is ample car parking is reserved for residents only (a plus in this busy town). The bar lounge is comfortable and well laid-out with large arm-chairs. Food is available by order at the bar, and on cool nights especially, guests will have no need to go looking in the town for a late-night meal. The pool and spa facilities are welcome for dispelling the strain of an energetic day in the Lakes.
