As a frequent visitor to Ambleside I have often wanted to stay in the Salutation Hotel. It is an ideal location right in the heart of the town so near to pubs, restaurants and all the outdoor equipment shops you could ever need. Also you are in the epi-centre of the Lake District

Stayed at the Salutation Hotel for a weekend away with my wife. It is a lovely hotel with nice rooms, friendly staff and excellent breakfast. The spa facilities are one of the reasons for our stay and are great. We will stay again.

Had a fantastic time with friends. The hotel is spacious and the staff are so helpful. Our room had a hot tub which was a bonus. This is my favourite hotel and never disappoints. Look forward to another visit. Well done to everyone for ensuring that we had a great start to Christ

Are dogs aloud in the Ambleside salutation hotel
Plenty of guests had dogs in the lounge so i guess they are allowed to accompany their owners in the rooms

Can anyone advise what the best suit is and roughly how much it cost. Looking at late September time.
We had a room on first floor which had a nice balcony all the rooms on that floor seemed to have balcony’s. It cost about £130 for the night. Hope this helps.

What is the difference between the 'Classic Double' and the 'Classic Double in the main hotel'. Where are the rooms that arent in the main building situated? I will be 31 weeks pregnant when we come so I don't want to have far to walk etc. Thanks.
We've stayed in both areas and equally nice. The annex is only a few steps from the hotel. I think it depends if you prefer a view over the beck or the village.
