BEST WESTERN Ambleside Salutation Hotel
We visit Ambleside quite a lot and usually stay at another hotel.
This time we had a Change and really enjoyed it, we stayed in Rydal room which was really nice with a lovel balcony. Would definitely go again.
Very good-sized room for a family of four.
Excellent room-cleaning service.
We stayed in room No : 215, the door closers on this room and other close rooms were not set up correctly and the doors banged when left to shut, to the extent that the room shook.
We reported this on Friday after noon, but the receptionist did not seem very interested. When we left on Sunday the banging was still the same. We were woken several times on both nights by the banging.
Overall our experience at the Salutation was good but 1 of the rooms was lovely and newly done and 2 of the rooms were very tired looking and definitely not worth the money we paid .
We just don't understand why all three rooms were the same price but of very different quality. Also it was not explained when we arrived that we could have 10% off the price of drinks with our westmorland and best western cards and was only told after we had paid and then were told it was too late to have that discount,so again not very pleased.Such a shame as the hotel is really lovely downstairs but all the bedrooms need to be of the same quality or priced accordingly.
Very nice hotel, conveniently located for a variety of restaurants.
spacious but hot even with window open all night. Breakfast was very good and plentiful. Would chose this one again.
Excellent breakfast, evening meal, atmosphere, rooms, hospitality
Excellent stay in Ambleside
First class service from the minute I arrived.
I arrived early to check in and was expecting to have a wait for my room. The receptionist explained that my room wasnt quite ready, but to save you waiting around we can offer you an upgrade at no cost . This set the scene for rest of my stay. The location of the Hotel is excellent, the cleanliness and feel of the hotel was wonderful. The leisure club was outstanding, with excellent wet area facilities. I only had breakfast at the hotel, which was excellent. I think I have found a little gem in this hotel and have already booked again for my next business trip.
Great stay at the Salutation
If travelling to the Lake District then a stay at the Salutation in Ambleside would be a great choice.
The service was fantastic from start to finish. The hotel is well decorated (and was being decorated further when we visited in October) and has a very welcoming bar area and lounge. Use of the pool, sauna and outside hot tub after a day's exploration of the Lake District is something which you will be very glad of. Whilst we did not eat there in the evening, the breakfasts were superb. The hotel is perfectly located with an array of good pubs and shops on your door step. A minor for me would be the size of the pet friendly room we had. Out of consideration for the hotel furniture we brought our dogs crate and with this in the room there isn't a great deal space left. That said, we were not in the room very much so the inconvenience wasn't too great. All in all a very small minor, as in the first instance it is great that a hotel such as this allows a pet to stay. And the staff fussed her to bits which was very welcoming. Will be returning again soon hopefully. Thanks Salutation.
Would stay again
We stayed in the lodge.
The view was of the driveway in and parked cars which was slightly disappointing. The accommodation was very clean and had everything we needed. The swimming pool / spa was excellent and spotless.The outdoor hot tub was very relaxing. The pool locker locks were high tech and mine didn't work. The staff were helpful and came down to sort things out. Overall, it was just what we needed, we had no complaints and would definately stay again.
Excellent Hotel situated in the centre of Ambleside with excellent facilities & Staff.
The tone was set by the our reception - the young Lady was excellent & explained everything clearly & concisely. We were shown to our room (not in the main Hotel) which was roomy & had an interesting shape. We made full use of the facilities - Gym, Pool, Sauna, Steam Room & Hot Tub. It was quite exhilarating sat in it on Sunday AM in the pouring rain. The food, Breakfast & Evening meal was good & the Staff quiet & attentive - not pushy. Looking forward to our next visit!
