          • Single
            7.4

            Leisure Centre facilities and central location in Ambleside.

            Reception staff could be rather cold. very creaky floors!

          • Family with children
            5.8

            decent swimming pool, good breakfast

            bedding was cumbersome, too complicated and heavy. a simple sheets and duvet set up would have sufficed

          • Couple
            9.2

            good staff, excelent leasure facilities, great location for looking around the lakes, wide range of eating places if you dont want to eat in the hotel (chinese, indian etc) overall a very enjoyable stay.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Leisure facilities very good, Location of Hotel.

            Room facilities should be standardised as not the same as other Best Western, eg less facilities.

          • Older travelers
            4.6

            us gym pool and spa facilites

            The room was very small not value for money infact if i had used Bestwestern rather than you would have saved £100 so will not be using you again. Restraunt food very poor at breakfast time alway things missing on the plate staff in restaurant poor and the evening meal was even worse

          • Couple
            10.0

            The heated pool, spa and sauna facilities were excellent. We were there on a long weekend and were surprised as it was not too busy. I also liked the outdoor jacuzzi. The rooms were comfortable - slightly older decor than I was expecting based on the reviews I had read but the hotel was in good condition. We had a club room which had a bathtub with jets. Breakfast was excellent consisting of a fully cooked a-la-carte meal plus a continental buffet.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            the staff were very friendly ,the position of the hotel was perfect and was a very nice place would definitely stay again .the only gripe i would have is the car park is very tight for space apart from that it was a lovely hotel.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Helpful staff, good leisure facilities - especially outdoor hot tub, well situated to access all local amenities, catered for special dietary needs at breakfast

            Car parking was a little awkward and not easy to unload/load car with luggage

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            We loved the position of the hotel in Ambleside though parking is very difficult. The hotel staff are very willing and cheerful and welcoming.

            Parking is very short through -no fault of the hotel. Ambleside is always a busy place at any time so this is only to be expected.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Breakfasts excellent. Nice room but a bit small; good balcony. Pool area good but staff were cleaning steamroom & sauna when it was open.

            Car parking difficult.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            We had a Club room which was spacious and well kitted out. It had a great balcony with fab views!

            Only that there was work being carried out which was noisy at times

          • Single
            9.6

            It was my first time but will be going again.

          • Single
            9.6

            I've stayed at the Salutation hotel before, although I really enjoyed weekend. The Club Double Room was Excellent and really clean, also the Leisure Facilities especially the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and tropical shower was really fantastic.The breakfast was superb and the hotel staff was really welcoming, polite, very helpful and professional. I really enjoyed the location, pubs and my stay!

            I have no negatives to say about the Salutation Hotel

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            We have stayed at this Hotel on 5 occasions now and always enjoy, what has become, a clean, modern well run Hotel with very friendly staff.

            The Hotels wifi had a very weak signal and was not very effective in the bedrooms.
