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 .
