Historical Traveller Reviews of Langdale Chase Hotel
Nice but overpriced, with some issuesfrom HK79
I stayed in a "garden bungalow". The bungalow was quite large but very tired. It was dirty (spiders' webs, stains on the carpet and walls, dusty etc.) and the television didn't work. I recommend that you avoid the garden bungalow if you stay here.
The restaurant food and service was excellent.
Overall, I was disappointed. Perhaps the main hotel is better.
Beautiful location - very average roomfrom star31
We went for dinner in the evening. We sat in the conservertory which was v. small and then ate in the dinning room which was lovely great views and the food was v nice. Luckily the next morning the sun had come out and we were able to enjoy what the Langdale had to offer for the morning before we checked out.
My advice would be to pay extra for a better room but be warned that they are very chintzy - and check the weather!
perfect in everywayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff made us feel so at ease and coundnt do enough for us especially Fay, Anita, James, Chris and Claire for helping us at the beginning.
We didnt want to leave on the Monday and that goes for the rest of our guest. The hotel is spotless and the food is out of ths world. I can honestly say that we will keep going back to Langdale Chase as it is the most magical place we have been to.
Outstanding in every wayfrom Routhy2
We ate in the restaurant on two evenings and the food was exceptional - this was the opinion of all of the guests who stayed with us during the weekend. The wedding breakfast was exactly how we had hoped it would be, with excellent yet unobtrustive service. We were allowed to completely tailor our menu - guests had selected their own choices from a range of dishes.
The grounds offer unlimited photo opportunities. At the end of the day the wedding party had a cruise around Lake Windermere on a privately chartered Windermere Cruises launch that was able to dock at the hotel's private jetty.
We stayed in the Boat House on our wedding night - the room itself is fairly standard in decor but it is the most amazing location. We ate breakfast on the roof terrace with swans swimming around the boardwalk below.
I would highly recommend anyone to stay at this hotel, it is simple exceptional.
Outstandingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are spacious and tasteful and the food is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble and our five year old daughter was treated like royalty, spending ages playing with Nobby the dog!
I cannot fathom that anyone could give this idyllic experience other than a 5 star rating. It is a reflection on them, not the hotel.
We can thoroughly recommend Langdale Chase and can't wait to go back there again to take in the views and the relaxing atmosphere. First Class.
Loved everything about itfrom Dil47
Exceptional Location, Disappointing Accommodationsfrom janices7
The hotel and common rooms were OK - not exceptional. However, the room itself was quite disappointing and dated. The "king" bed was 2 singles pushed together which was quite uncomfortable. Everything was just plain worn out including the bedspread, curtains, chairs and pillows. It was not at all luxurious and the instant my husband opened the door to the room, I was disappointed.
In addition, the 2 days that we were there, the grounds crew decided to clean up some branches/storm damage that had been there well over a year (according to the receptionist). Everyday, they lit a fire directly adjacent to our room and since the winds were toward the hotel, we were basically smoked out and had to close all the windows and couldn't use the deck/balcony that we had paid all that extra money for. I called the front desk to complain, but they weren't too receptive so we were only able to utilize the deck in the evenings after the burning stopped (around 4 or 5 PM).
The breakfast and restaurant service was horrible. I had to send my scrambled eggs back (which I had ordered "dry") because they were completely runny. I kindly asked that she have the chef put them back in the pan for a minute. Literally, 10 minutes later she came back with my plate of food. The bacon was completely dried out and the eggs had a "crust" on top of them (they were still completely raw in the middle). She clearly had taken the plate and set it under the heat lamp for 10 minutes. Needless to say, I couldn't even eat breakfast that day. The next morning, I just had cereal and milk.
It is too bad that the accommodations were so disappointing because with this location, they could easily be a 5 star hotel with some restoration and staff training.
Excellent Location, Fantastic stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed there from Friday to Sunday, and from the minute we arrived there, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful.
The hotel has a lot of character, and all the rooms are very individual and tastefully decorated.
We had a party of 30 who stayed in the hotel with us, so we used the Oak room for our wedding breakfast which the hotel arranged beautifully.
The day itself was perfect and the staff were all very professional and helpful without being obtrusive.
The food was excellent and the wedding cake which the chef made at our special request was superb.
Overall, our weekend at the Langdale was a wonderful experience.
Very Relaxingfrom MazdamanHazlemere

Top Local Tips for Windermere
Lake District Winderemere is a lovely area but don't stay at the Langdale Chase Hotel.
Taxis/ trains There is an excellent link to Windermere for the mainline London Euston to Glasgow line. This runs from Oxenholme and goes directly to Windermere. Taxi's wait all day at the tain station at Windermere and can whisk you to your hotel in 10 minutes. I would tend to use this mode of transport as taxi's are reasonably priced and the traffic in and out of the Lake District an be horrific on a Friday and a Sunday afternoons.
Nice Place Do the water sports
