Excellent hotel. Spent a couple of days in Ambleside at the Salutation hotel. Was lucky to have booked the room with the hot tube on the balcony. Being right in the centre was also an added bonus Hotel room was very well appointed with spa bath and shower and the benefit of having a hot tube on the balcony. The...

The hotel is locataed in such an idyllic part of the country. The surroundings are beautiful and there's plenty of small, independent shops to treat yourself in as well as supermarkets. The hotel is easy enough to find and the car park is easy enough to park in. They have pin controlled gates to keep out anyone who isn't a...

Great food and room service . Friendly staff and rooms clean and good facilities . Our second stay was only let down by a very cold outdoor hot tub full of leaves and dirt and a rather chilly swimming pool, we have stayed before with our dog which is great and they are allowed in the bar area .

Just visited for a drink and asked for the use of a computer but was given the impression that the reception staff were far too busy to really help. I was pointed in the general direction but just with a wave of the hand. Everything happens at the main door and whatever happens, it feels as if one has to...

We stayed three nights in a family room (209) bed & breakfast basis. We've stayed here on numerous occasions before which have all been excellent stays hence we chose to go back. The room is at the front of the hotel above the entrance which makes it very noisy not only when people stand outside for a smoke but when...

We had a meal on Monday evening and we're surprised how busy it was. We were not guests of the hotel and wondered if you were treated differently but we were pleasantly surprised as the restaurant is beautiful with the most charming, hard working staff. Our meal was beautifully presented, hot and delicious. The price was very good for such...

Wanted to stay here for years and we finally managed a long weekend. The Hotel itself is very nice with good rooms and excellent gym and pool area and a lovely outdoor bubble pool. The food was excellent. Unfortunately the service in the restaurant was very poor with some staff clearly not trained, not able to speak sufficient English to...
