5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a great weekend camping near the New Dungeon Ghyll and thoroughly enjoyed our evenings spent in the New Dungeon Ghyll. We were made really welcome and enjoyed the amazing atmosphere, especially on our second night when there was live music. Very clean toilets. Highly recommended. Will definitely visit again! A 'must visit'!

We always assumed that this was just a hotel, however after a long day's walking in beautiful sunshine, the adjacent pub was full, so we thought we would just see if the hotel served food. How glad we were! They now have a walker's bar, with a unique beer only available here, and gorgeous food. The staff service was exemplary.... More

We had not stayed at the New Dungeon Ghyll for over 8 years and it was such a pleasure to be back! We had a five night break with B&B and dinner and it was great to see the same high standards as before. The staff were friendly and our room on the top floor was comfortable and well furnishes....

Friendly helpful staff. Great food for evening meal with lots to choose from. Room was pleasant & clean with a double shower. Our view from window over the lawn was stunning. Wi Fi was good in the room, Wi Fi also in the lounge. An ideal base for many walks without taking the car out. This has to be one... More

This was the third time we have stayed here for a winter break of 5 days. At the foot of the Langdale Pikes it is wonderfully located for fell-walking, climbing and touring. The accommodation is to a high standard with excellent service. The food is to a very good standard.

Had been 3 years ago and apart from the refurbishment nothing had changed, staff as friendly and the was excellent. The Sticky toffee pudding is to die for. We had fair weather all week so followed the walks out of the hotel. So the car never moved until it was time to come home. Will certainly return in the future... More

We hadn't stayed at this hotel for a few years although we had called in for drinks and food more recently. They sent me a £20 voucher for their Spring promotion and since we were staying in Coniston at the weekend , we decided to add a couple of days in Langdale. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and after a... More

We booked a two night winter break with DB&B. The hotel looks to have been recently refurbished and had everything we could have asked for. The evening meals were delicious and rounded off with tea/coffee in the lounge which was a nice touch. It was also good to see that the in-room cups were taken away for "proper" washing each...
