      Our mini moon…

      A lovely place to stay for our mini moon. The hotel room was lovely and we were treated to one of the newly re furnished rooms. The balcony was a bonus and allowed us to sit out and watch the world go by. The pool and spa facilities were great. We had no issues booking in with the new process. It was lovely and relaxing. Breakfast was nice, a nice varied number of options to choose from. Would definitely recommend for a nice stay in the lakes!

      Bank holiday weekend in Ambleside

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ambleside Salutation Hotel. The reception service was brilliant and everyone made us feel comfortable at arrival. Hotel is conveniently located on the high street and everything is within walking distance. Winderemere Lake is also 15-20 mins walk away. The restaurant staff was again very helpful and the food was great! We also used the Spa facilities for body treatements and Anita & Megan were brilliant. We will definitely returning soon for another break!

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      The hotel is a very nice place to stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The whole hotel is very well presented, and has a large lounge/bar area to relax in. There was plenty of parking (although the overflow parking is a bit hidden). The bed in our room was large and very comfortable The only criticism I have is the food in the onsite restaurant was average. I had the Lasagne that was very bland, and my wife had the curry that had no hint of curry spices in it.
