“Great Location - Good food - Excellent service”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

A midweek Monday to Friday stay with Dinner Bed and Breakfast. Location in the Langdale Valley with Fell walks from the door. Excellent cooked Breakfasts and four course Dinners with large packed lunches to order. Rooms improved a lot since our last stay in 2003…Excellent service and relaxing evenings in the Lounge. A destination in itself.

We have just returned from a trip to the New Dungeon Ghyll when we celebrated my husband's 70th birthday. The hotel was great and we stayed in the Garden Room which was excellent and of course the position of the hotel is wonderful.

We stayed one night after a long walk, went to the bar for some food (Quite pricey) and drinks the bar staff need to smile abit more. And they had there staff meeting right next to us. Was hard not to over hear everything. Felt like we were part of it lol. Other than that nice stay.

We have a few days here with a group of friends to relax, eat, drink, talk and walk in the area in late February or early March. We find the staff really friendly, helpful and patient. The food is wonderful, all made on the premises and always includes good veggie options. The lounge, with a wood burning stove, is the ideal spot for reading, playing one of the games or just chatting before dinner. For our room this year we chose twin beds and had plenty of room, a tv, tea-making facilities etc. The ensuite had a large shower which suited us well. We recommend this hotel to friends who have also enjoyed their stay. It's ideal for walking direct from the door.

Have just returned from a wonderful two nights at this Langdale hotel. We booked the weekend with friends and we were all impressed with the friendly relaxed atmosphere at the New Dungeon Ghyll. Our rooms were well equipped, comfortable and very clean and the food at dinner was delicious. All the staff were lovely and accommodating . Ideally paced for walks from the door step. Will definitely hope to return.

Friendly staff, home made food, wood burning stoves and fabulous views make this a must stay hotel in the lakes. The hotel rooms have been recently refurbished so everything is fresh and clean. The residents lounge has lots of reading material and board games, and s a lovely place to sit and relax after a days walking on the fells. Lots of walks straight from the door. Will definitely return.

We stayed here on valentines night in room 10 which has been recently refurbished. Great views from both windows across to the fells and up the valley. Comfortable four poster bed which in my opinion is too big for the room. No bath but large powerful shower with plenty hot water. Friendly staff and lovely residents lounge with log burning stove and views. Dinner in the restaurant was homemade and tasty. Wine was reasonably priced and I particularly enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc. We had a special offer deal at £140 per couple DB&B and to be honest I wouldn't want to pay any more than that, but I would definitely return to this hotel. Bear in mind that these are winter sun to thurs rates so will be more in the summer and weekends.

Room Tip: There are only 4 rooms with a bath so you will need to request it on booking if you want a long soak...
