Our two newest Lake Rooms were open in time for Christmas, the rooms are looking good and we have named them Red Screes and Langdale and they seem to be becoming very popular, they both have the added luxury of there own hot tub on the balcony – very swish! They are great rooms and well worth a stay even if it’s not a special occasion.
It’s been a fabulous Christmas and New here at the Ambleside Salutation Hotel & Spa with lots going on and everyone one having a fantastic time!
We would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you all in 2015!
We said a tearful farewell to Joanne or ‘Our Joanne’ as she is affectionately known, Joanne has been with us almost half her life and will be sorely missed by staff and guest’s alike. We know she is leaving for all the right reasons – to be able to spend more time with her two boys (oh and husband!!) we wish her all the best and know she will be popping in for a brew on a regular basis. We gave a her a great send off with cup cakes and fizz – Good Luck ‘Our Joanne’!

Forget his catch phrase SEVEN we definitely got a TEN from Len when strictly judge Len Goodman stayed with us. He was in the lakes filming for a new day time show about celebrities and their childhood holidays, the Lake District of course was pretty high on the list. Here he is having a photo- not quite a selfie with Receptionist’s Lida and Anna .
We have been lucky enough to be mentioned in the Mail on Sunday thanks to ex Corrie star Tina O’Brien- she certainly enjoyed her visit to the Lakes and her stay with us- thanks Tina!
It’s been a bit busy on the sporting front, congratulations to our Manager Paul Cookson for completing the Great North Run this weekend must be all that running around the hotel that keeps him fit! Sally – Anne and Rachel who both work at Oxley’s also completed the race and had a great time. Our Maintenance Manager Stuart completed the Helvellyn Triathlon this weekend too which is some going - well done guys what a sporty bunch!
Well we have been lucky enough to be featured in the Caterer magazine this month courtesy of Stephanie Sparrow. A few of our staff attended a 2 and a half day BEST WESTERN Personality Experience course and all gained a few ‘magic moments’ of their own! A great time was had by all!
A fabulous turn out at Ambleside Sports with locals and many visitors, a great time was had by all. Geoff was on hand to open the Sports as his role as President of the association and of course Paul was there helping out with the track and field events Our very own wild man of Windermere Mike (Head Chef) exchanged his swim socks for trainers and completed the fell race – and wasn’t last!. A great day too weather wise and for Ambleside Junior Fell Running Club who went home with most of the prizes – well done guys!
