This is a charming seaside hotel, ( the beach is just across the road) with delightful owners. Not luxurious or posh, and not pretending to be, but warm, comfortable and friendly ( 'posh' can be a tad snooty). My elderly mother and I were spending a couple of days checking out Weymouth (that'll be a separate review) and I chose the Langham primarily for it's closeness to the beach, but also because it offered an evening meal. Jacqui answered the door to me, helped to unload Mum, then showed me where to park, issued a permit and helped to carry the luggage, then showed us our room, telling us about mealtimes, what was on offer and other useful information all the while. She couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Dinner (which is only for residents and needs to be requested in the morning) was at six o'clock, and was 3 courses of delicious unpretentious English cooking followed by tea/coffee and because we were the only diners, accompanied by Jacqui's tales of visits to The Gambia and the work she and Geoff are involved in there. Breakfast the next day offered fruit juice, choices of cereals, fruit, pastries etc followed by cooked English breakfast; the components changing daily. Diets can be catered for if warning given.We didn't meet Geoff until the day we left as he'd been away himself, but he is equally friendly, entertaining and helpful; we couldn't have asked for better hosts and would recommend them and the hotel to anyone.
A note on parking: The Esplanade is a very busy main road and a sea of yellow lines. Parking for the hotel, and probably others on the esplanade is in the small streets to the side and rear of the hotel. There are marked bays which you take on a first come, best space basis,fairly strictly monitored by the local Wasps who will sting you with a fine if you don't display a permit. These are issued free by the hotel; request one when you book. This could be a bit of a pain if you have a lot of luggage, small kids or a wheelchair pilot,so bear this in mind; it's the one disadvantage to being on the seafront.
