Excellent service, room, facilities and breakfast. I have roughed it in Ambleside a couple of times with my mates on walking holidays - really nice part of the world - so I wanted to take my wife to have a look and a walk up some big hills. There was not the option to book a 4/5* hotel in Ambleside so we booked the Salutation as we could not find anything better on- line. I don't understand why this is only 3* as it was excellent. Probably the only reason I can think of is that there is no air-con in the rooms so it was a bit warmer than we would have liked. Other than that everything else was first class. Really nice pool/gym/jacuzzi/hot tub area + wonderful brekkie (cooked to order). I am currently staying in another 3* best western and it doesn't compare - Ion
Y booked it on the chance that they are all as good as the Salutation...... They're not! less
