“Lovely location”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

We rented a lodge at the estate. This is the third time we have rented and as always it's a great place to stay, relax and enjoy being in the middle on one of the best locations in the Lake District for walking. He lodge was clean and tidy and had everything needed for a great stay - wifi was a bonus in this type of rental. There are two pubs within a few minutes walk serving good food and drinks - fireworks on November 5th at Wainrights was an added bonus, as was the hog roast. The spa and gym provided good facilities, but the pool is best avoided at peak times if you want a quiet swim. Will return again

I wish I could give this hotel a 5 star rating - but I can't do that. We have been here several times, and not once have we been made to feel welcome by the Reception Staff. In fact they don't welcome you. Two couples in front of us at the desk did not receive a welcome either. The Reception Staff looked bored, and as if they couldn't be bothered to give you your key-cards, or any information. What a shame !!! They need some training. This hotel is in the most beautiful countryside, absolutely magnificent. Terrace Restaurant Staff are the very best, professional, welcoming and friendly. Staff you meet in the estate are also friendly and cheerful. But it's the Reception Staff that you meet first, so look to it Langdale Managers and correct this situation asap.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

Easy check in, staff very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The room was in the 'Fellside' rooms and was very nice, clean and modern with a large bathroom. Heating was available in the room but wasn't used.
Made use of the Wainwright Inn which I believe is part of the complex. Plenty of real ales, including some local, were available. The village of Ennerdale is very close and an easy walk although make sure you have a torch or other lighting for walking back at night.
Great breakfast in the morning, buffet style but all hot and freshly cooked.
Once checked out we had a drink in the Terrace cafe, plenty of different teas and coffees available.
Overall, a very pleasant single nights stay and we would use again for sure.

Great place, great walks lovely health club. Just a fab place to escape and chill out. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Ps. The local pub grub is also sublime. We ate in both the local pubs and had excellent food served to us by friendly staff. The lamb was to die for!!

Spend a few weeks in the Lakes and you know how special this location is -closer to Elterwater than Ambleside. Very friendly receptionists and overall very good service at a very busy time . Terrace restaurant good - slightly bigger portions and a few more veggies would be well received. Rooms very nice appointed. Leisure centre excellent. Breakfast comprehensive with some nice touches. Kids really enjoyed it and if the kids like it much easier for us

Very nice hotel, beautiful setting.
Lovely leisure area. Pool and soft play area, great facilities.
Unfortunately lack of customer service that you should expect from a luxury hotel.
Not feeling welcomed at reception.
Breakfast generous and looked good but the overall quality was average.
Cocktail bar with no knowledge of how to make cocktails.
Could be a great hotel with more attention to customers.

An amazing relaxing place to spend a few days. The service was excellent and facilities lovely. The beauty treatments were first class - shame there wasn't more availability. Purdeys restaurant was ok - good food but empty mid week. Wainwrights pub was rammed and food great value.
