Came to eat here after a walk and rendezvous with family between Christmas and New Year. Food was hearty, tasty and filling and the atmosphere was lovely with walkers and families all settled in to eat and rest. Very basic but just what is needed after being out, no fuss, no frills and good beer too! The guy behind the... More

The hotel is vey comfortable and cosy, the staff are really helpful and the whole experience was marvellous. It was so nice that we all decided to... More

The New Dungeon Ghyll hotel (NDGH) is located in beautiful Langdale. By just driving up the road to the hotel, it gives you a feel for the beauty of its location. We were very fortunate with the weather - clear, frosty and the hills had just a topping of snow. I stay in lots of 'business style' hotels where the... More

I booked this hotel for a small walking party of 7 people. From the moment we arrived I was very impressed by the warm welcome and lovely surrounding of the resident lounge and reception. My room (twin) was a good size, nicely decorated with very nice shower room. After a drink or two in the lounge we were called to... More

Freezing temperatures, storm force winds, and driving sleet and snow on the tops, and apparently the whole national park to ourselves: not a soul up Coniston Old Man except us two. Three great days in The Lakes. And how better to recover from our wind-swept expeditions than with a couple of great nights in the NDG. It maintains its usual... More

Stopped by for a breakfast after camping on the hills Saturday night. A great disappointment - a breakfast place that has no sausages, and offers toasted crusts; dreadful planning for a food establishment. Very poor value for money. The espresso was good.

Myself and a friend first visited this hotel in order to 'fuel-up' before wild camping in the hills for a few days, and were pleasantly surprised by how friendly and engaging the staff were. Not only did they seem genuinely interested in our trip, but were happy to let us fill up on water from the bar; something that from... More

We've stayed at this hotel quite a few times before and had booked to spend a couple of days away during the half term holiday. Unfortunately, my husband fell ill and we had to cancel. We cancelled more than 24 hours beforehand, but they rigidly stuck to their policy of charging the full rate (room and meals!) because we hadn't... More

Very sorry to hear about your husbands illness but as I have said in a previous e mail we tried out hardest to relet the room for you, we have to stick to our cancellation policy as you would be amazed at the tales we hear from people trying to cancel rooms, the best ones because of the weather!!

My son and I had had a very early start and had completed our walking route by 12:45 and were ready for something to eat and drink and called into the Walkers' Bar at the NDG. The signs said they were open from 11:00 but there was no one behind the bar. No problem, we sat at a table taking... More

In our quieter times we do not have a full time bar person in our walkers bar, there is a bell on the bar that clearly states to ring for attention, on autumn and winter days there can be very little passing trade and that does not justify a full time bar person so this option works well for us....
