“Not worth the high prices for average accomodations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

I never like to write negative reviews, and this isn't one of them, it's just mixed. Hubs and I had high expectations that we'd relax and experience 4 to 5 star accomodations but instead walked away with a 3 star feel. The pluses; beautiful grounds, peaceful setting, convenient location. The negatives; outdated decor in the rooms, weird humidity stench in our suite; non filtered pools (making it fun to have floaty things swim right along with you); very poor $49 pp buffet; our toilet had residue from the previous guest....pretty disgusting. I had read some of the bad reviews but had mixed feelings about booking bec the pics and some reviews were positive, after staying there, please spend your $ somewhere else where you will feel like you had 4 star accomodations not something out of the holiday inn.

A wedding weekend at Lansdowne Resort which couldn't be beat!!! Lansdowne provided a destination feel to a traditional wedding for our family and guests. Everyone had options from golf, to the spa and the pool facitlites. The resort was gracious and accommodative. As one guest remarked, there may not be another wedding next year but we should hold a family gathering here each year!!!

The staff was professionala and freindly. The restaraunts and tavern were great!! There were not issues or complaints.

My only request would be that Lansdowne begin to update the decorum. This type of resort sould feel as bright and airy inside as it is outside.

A GREAT TIME was had by all!!!!

We were at the resort for a wedding this month. My husband and two boys enjoyed playing golf every day on different courses. We enjoyed lying by the pool. The service was wonderful. There was a great water slide at one of the pools for the younger members of our party. We had a delicious lunch in the clubhouse one day and a poolside lunch another day that was fabulous. We enjoyed an outdoor concert on Friday night. It was the perfect venue for a wedding and reception too.

I attended a family wedding at the Lansdowne Resort and found it to be a great facility. Location is convenient to highways but seems away from the hustle & bustle when you are on site. I didn't get a chance to golf but the views of the course are beutiful from the hotel and the pool facilities are excellent.

A recent visit to this cusp-of-the-country resort became a fabulous experience for my family and me. I was there for a weekend of business, while my wife and two children got a chance to R&R.

We were pleasantly surprised by all the phenomenal renovatoins at this stunning resort. It is broken conveniently into three areas - Business (with conference rooms and an auditorium, Hotel and the Restaurants, and then the recreation side - fitness center/spa, pools and the stunning golf courses.

On Friday night (when we arrived), we enjoyed their live outdoor concert series; on that particular night, a rocking band called "Junkfood" who were very tight and very professional.
(The resort also has other, more tame musicians in their summertime series, too)

Our room, a corner suite on the top (9th) floor was very roomy and comfortable, maybe a bit dark in spots, needed more overhead lighting (I let the property know and they were appreciative to this comment), but clean and a good value.

Dining is exceptional.
We enjoyed their morning breakfast and also, a lavish Sunday brunch.

The whole family loved the pools (4!), which were safe and well-maintained.

We did not get a chance to gold, though we did find a cool hiking trail that goes through the course, on down to the Potomac and into a lovely little park.

Service from all staffers encountered was exceptional.

And I cannot suggest a visit to the spa, enough.
It earns its high ratings from local publications. The hot lava stone treatment was a volcanic slice of heaven...

All in all, this was a fine trip and a real surprise off the Beltway.

As a concierge, a travel writer and an event planner (for whatever that may be worth), I highly recommend this resort.

Had heard about this place for years, but never had an opportunity to go. I decided to take my husband there for a three night getaway during his birthday. It was only a short 1 1/2 hr drive from home and a very scenic one at that. I was a little nervous at first to book here after reading the rather terrible reviews. However, we are still scratching our heads as we thought this was a fantastic hidden gem. Everything from check in to check out, including the restaurants to the incredible golf courses, from the relaxing pools and fitness center, the Lansdowne Resort has it all and does it all exceedingly well. We were so impressed by all the amenities, staff and entire Loudoun county area, we have booked another getaway so we can bring our teenage daughters. Please don't hesitate as long as we did to give it a try. Maybe some of the reviewers are just disgruntled employees. We LOVED it and can't wait to go back!
