We stayed at the Langdale hotel for three nights. The room was lovely but lacked a little of that luxury element that we did expect as seen in the pictures. The location of the hotel is great and very relaxing such a close walk to Elterwater which was great! We had a meal in both the restaurants and have to... More

We were booked in for 3 nights expecting a luxury spa hotel only to be extremely disappointed. Our signature room was dark,tiny,noisy and certainly not worth £160 a night. We checked out after one night's stay, our only advice would be if you like a luxurious hotel to stay in keep travelling and pass this one by !! By calling... More

We did have a lovely family holiday in a lodge overlooking the river. The location is perfect and the facilities are good. Having the pool and restaurants made for a great day when the weather was bad. But I wouldn't go back. On arrival the lovely welcome was spoiled by being sent to the wrong lodge - a bit of... More

Stayed at the beginning of August as a birthday treat. You relax as you walk through the front doors! The setting is spectacular. Surrounded by trees and small lakes by the side of the beck. Really lovely setting. Bedroom nicely decorated,lovely bathroom, spotlessly clean and quiet. Great facilities on site,two restaurants plus a bar and a traditional pub just a... More

We stayed here for one night expecting a gorgeous stay and were slightly let down... Our room for one night was £185, was it worth that?! I don't think so!! The hotel rooms are quite spread out and I guess if you paid over the odds for a room there would have been some nicer but you would still expect... More

Stayed in a fell room which overlooks car park. If you're a fan of deep purple walls paired with yellow floral wallpaper you'll love it. Room a good size & bathroom clean with wide bath & very powerful shower. The estate is in a wooded area and you can easily walk to Elterwater & Chapel Stile though a small bridge... More

My son and I used the facilities at the Langdale and found it to be just ok but with a nasty turn. Whilst using the swimming pool with other families present my wife and I noticed that there was a couple love making in the jacuzzi which went totally unnoticed by the staff. When others arrived to use the jacuzzi... More

We booked a two day stay to catch up with friends as a halfway stop between us. Both rooms were smart and the bathrooms looked brand new. The food in Hobsons was excelelnt and good value, Purdeys was very very good and priced accordingly not too dear but very few diners on a Saturday night. The drink prices were very... More

As soon as we arrived the staff at the hotel were so welcoming and helpful, something which continued throughout our stay. We were offered full use of the facilities for the remainder of the day when we checked out, one example of the fantastic service offered. The hotel grounds and setting are stunning, beautiful, quiet and relaxing. Our room was... More

Just come back from what should have been a two night luxury break. On arrival we were made very welcome and given details about the hotel etc and we paid in full for our stay as requested by the young chap named Craig. We had booked a luxury Waterside room for two nights and were really looking forward to a... More
