Ideal for anyone who wants to live rural life to the full!

The Best Western Ambleside Salutation Hotel is a unique village centre hotel in the heart of the English Lake District.

Picturesque surroundings await both inside and out, with the vast beauty of this part of the world to enjoy by day, and cosy lounge areas to relax in on an evening. Our state-of-the-art leisure club means you can take a break from taking a break, while local attractions in and around Ambleside provide more than enough places to explore during your stay at this delightful hotel.

The hotel is close to local shops in Ambleside itself, but there are plenty of shops to browse in a little further away, should you venture out to Kendal or other places of interest.
