Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Arrived at Langtrys Hotel on a Rainy Day for a 1 night stay as been here before. Easy to check in and stayed in J. Marie room that was very clean and tidy... Nice place to stay and very comfy

Just back from a long weekend stay at the Langtry Manor Hotel. The breakfasts live up to their reviews and are served in a very atmospheric dining room. First morning had the full English breakfast which included 3 rounds of delicious quality bacon, sausage, beans,...fried egg, fried bread and the most delicious black pudding I have ever tasted. On the two other mornings I was too full to have the full English so went for the Eggs Florentine one morning and a simple boiled egg on our last day. All great. Staff very friendly. Will definitely return. On the negative side, they no longer serve dinner. It's a pity as, with the 4-Poster Bed rooms, and roll top baths, this is a very romantic hotel and it would have been nice to have been able to dress up for dinner.More

I rang the morning of tea to postpone as I was unwell and we had a bereavement in the family. The man said I would lose the money or I could pick the food up in a bag! I sent my daughter and her friend...to my 60th treat from my brother. Very unhelpful and no reply to email.More

Booked afternoon tea several weeks ahead as a birthday treat for a visitor who would only be staying with us for a few days. Had a call just 5 days beforehand to be told that they no longer do teas on Mondays or Tuesdays and...therefore our booking was cancelled. We could however go on a different day which was no use as our visitor would no longer be with us. V surprised that we were not told at the time of booking; with only a few days notice it gave the impression that they were chaotic and disorganised, so we felt that perhaps this was a blessing in disguise as we went elsewhere and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!More

I have yet to attend an afternoon tea but after just calling to book my afternoon tea voucher, which I was given as a birthday present, I was quite disgusted about the customer service of the man on the phone. I was booking and confirming...the dates and he was incredibly rude, patronising and quite clearly distracted. Not a good first impression. If you don't like speaking to people in a nice manner... it is probably best you stick to back of house. What a shame!More

I have to say that this is a very difficult review because whilst there was nothing significantly wrong, it was not without it's moments. My wife and I had heard so many good things about Langtry Manor and were keen to try it. When a...Group-on deal came up we jumped at the chance. When we arrived the reception was empty, we waited for some while before a member of staff arrived. The deal included a glass of Prosecco to start and so we expected to be shown to a Bar area, instead we were told to go into the dining room and choose somewhere to sit, a strange way to start. The waiting staff are all foreign but very attentive and pleasant. A young lady came to the table to take our order, before our prosecco had turned up, so we asked for a little more time. Prosecco arrived and we spent some time on the menu. The selection looked good and the food arriving at other tables also looked good. I suppose in a way the menu was not exactly what we might have expected following the things that we'd been told by others, but we were generally happy. We ordered food and awaited the inclusive bottle of wine. The wine was good for a house wine, maybe a tad warm for red, but then I've come to expect that from most restauarants now. I wish that restaurants would observe the recommended serving temperature for red wine, it's really much better when served at the right temperature. Sorry about the rant, and not aimed directly at Langtry Manor. Whilst on drinks, there were water glasses on the table but water wasn't offered at all. Our bad for not thinking to ask, I'm sure that they would've provided either bottled or a jug if we'd asked. I suppose we're just so used to being asked in a restaurant. Maybe a silly point and not a moan, more an observation. The starters arrived, my wife had the soup that came without a spoon, we didn't realise until the waitress had left the table and had to ask another waitress. A spoon arrived very quickly. Easy mistake to make but shouldn't happen really. Her soup was good and came with a bread roll; floating in the soup. We have come across croutons in soup of course, but a bread roll? She had to try to break the roll up with the spoon to eat it. I'd suggest, leave the roll on the plate, if the client wants to float their roll in the soup then they can do so themselves. I had Fish Cakes and they were excellent. Next course we both had the Siroin Steak, wife asked for medium rare and I had rare. It was a tasty steak, however mine was rarer at one end than the other. My wife's steak was far from medium rare, indeed we would've said that it was medium to well done. In fairness, when we mentioned this we were offered a replacement, but as my wife said, it was a tasty steak and the pause during the meal whilst they cooked another steak would have impacted enjoyment. Thank you to the restaurant for offering to replace the steak though, sadly many don't. The rest of the main was good, maybe a few more chips would've been nice, but that's more about our big appetites rather than any real deficiency in the meal. The deal was for 3 courses and the desserts were very good. Finally we had coffee and tea, which we didn't expect to be included in the Group On deal, but was. So back to my initial comment, we had a pleasant evening with generally good food. The waiting staff were attentive and we enjoyed ourselves. Would we recommend it or return, I would say not. It was just a strange welcome with issues that whilst not show stopping, were not what we would expect from an establishment of this type and didn't; for us, live up to the reputation. This was more like a pub experience in a restaurant.More

This was a gifted experience bought for me through Groupon. I booked a week in advance over the phone and spoke with a very grumpy male receptionist. At points he was really rather rude to me and it left me a bit apprehensive as to...what we should expect of the venue. Luckily we were very impressed and I quickly forgot about the gruff tone held by the reception staff member! The waiter sat us at our table and promptly brought out tea along with the food, presented on a delicate tiered cake stand. The presentation was very pretty and the food was lovely- very fresh and there was plenty of it!! The waiter checked on us again to make sure everything was up to standard and he brought us more tea. The room was beautiful, with the backdrop of a gorgeous, quintessential stained glass window. I would fully recommend this hotels’ restaurant.More

We have stayed and eaten at this hotel before and loved it but it seems with new owners standards have plummeted. Being able to get a room and a table for dinner at short notice should have been a clue. On arrival we discovered that...the room we had been allocated was up three flights of stairs in the loft. The man who booked us in couldn't be bothered to show the way, instead he shouted for the cleaner to come down and lead the way. With two heavy suitcases to get to the room, and no offer of assistance with our bags,we decided to ask for something on a lower floor. However we only managed this after standing at the desk in the front hall that was reception, apparently, the man who checked us in was nowhere to be seen and only reappeared after my husband yelled hello a few times. For a 20 pounds we were given a room up only one flight of stairs. A huge improvement, or not. The room was filthy. One of the glasses hadn't been washed and had what looked like red wine in the bottom, the stool was stained, the light fitting hasn't seen a duster for a very long time, the shower was full of mold and the throw on the bottom of the bed had some nasty stains. Despite this we went to dinner expecting the previous quality meal. As we were checking out we were told the owner has just changed from fancy dining to bistro meals which explains the menu but not the quality or the service. The waiter was missing for most of the evening. When we ordered wine from the wine list he brought out and poured some cheap plonk that wasn't what we ordered. He said the one on the wine list wasn't avaliable so he gave us an alternative Aussie shiraz, admitting he knew nothing about wine. The alternative was not the same quality, but was the same price, as what we ordered. We complained and he took it back and we ordered something else. The steak and ale pie was really salty and the sticky toffee pudding was cold. I refused to even try a cooked breakfast after noticing the outside of my husband's cereal bowl had dried weetabix stuck to it. He braved a full English and says it wasn't the worst breakfast he's ever had. Overall the staff were missing in action, the waiter appeared to not want to be there, and by the time the meal was over neither did I, and the room was just filthy. Not somewhere I plan to visit again.More

Having had a couple of good previous experiences we rebooked. Lovely well situated building steeped in history. Wrap round garden frames the restaurant views. Service was prompt and friendly. The makeup of the sandwiches and cakes seems less grand than previously experienced but enjoyable all...the same. It's nice to be able to sit quietly and share some quality time with friends and family. No invasive back ground of loud music to contend with. A lovely setting with plenty of personal space to enjoy the afternoon.More

We were given a voucher from friends for a present and chose Langtry Manor as it looked like it offered a good afternoon tea. We did explain when we booked that one of us had a gluten intolerance and that egg in a sandwich was...also to be avoided. The sandwiches were gluten free and egg free but the range of gluten free cake provided was very disappointing and the total lack of a gluten free scone to have with jam and cream made the whole experience lack the special feel of a good afternoon tea. The other person's tea was adequate if not spectacular. There was an extremely limited choice of teas to drink. In fact, having had a number of traditional afternoon teas in a wide variety of locations this was undoubtedly the most limited we had experienced. The hotel is full of character, nice and clean and the area where the tea was served was full of charm. The waiter was very friendly and served us well.More
