Brimstone at Langdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2013

At last someone in the UK has found the formula for quality accommodation. Everything about this place oozes quality - the location - the building - the rooms - the service - the facilities - the lovely staff - all the little extras. The rooms are so perfect you don't want to leave them. Only regret we didn't stay longer.

At no time did Brimstone feel like a hotel. Park in the underground car park. Buzz the entry door and you're greeted by your 'host' (their phraseology not mine). No reception to check you in. Straight to your room (which is sumptuous) and a guided tour of facilities: reading room, boot room (with Berghaus stuff to wear should you forget your own) and leisure facilities across the way in the main hotel block. Free tea and coffee in the reading room along with wine, beer, sandwiches, cakes etc etc. it's different that's for sure. Service is good (albeit breakfast taken in our room was late and they forgot some things), but could be more polished. Location is excellent; we did two of their suggested local walks and the route descriptions were faultless and the scenery fantastic. We ate in the hotel restaurant and it was very good even for our critical pallets! So, will we return. Yes, you bet we will; just need to save up first...

We are lodge owners at Langdale and keep promising to come at a different time to our usual week
Brimstone opening gave us a great excuse to do just that with some indulgence

It did not let us down the room WAS fantastic the balcony also fantastic
The staff were attentive and friendly
We were impressed at all the little details that make an hotel special including the reading room with complimentary papers and generous refreshments
we chose to eat in the restaurant the dinner and breakfast were also first class
Highly recommended

Room Tip: cant go wrong really but we loved our junior suit

I took my husband for a birthday treat, and omg, what a treat it was. We stayed in Rm 9 which is one of the two spa suites, very spacious, immaculately clean and certainly has the wow factor and more. Any one looking for a relaxing, indulging, peaceful retreat, then this has to be the place, who wouldn't want to be relaxing in a bathroom with folding doors which opens out onto a balcony with views to die for while in the spa bath with a lovely chilled bottle of champagne, just watching the world go by..........

Room Tip: Rm 9, spa suite, very large balcony with views to die for

My husband and I stayed here for one night as a birthday treat and it was just simply amazing! We had the best time. We had the duet suite which was out of this world with the two freestanding baths, huge wet room bathroom, massive bed, log burning stove, lounge area, dressing room, two huge TV's and amazing balcony! Breakfast in bed was divine, a really lovely touch. The staff were great, really friendly and the reading room was a fabulous little extra with free nibbles and drinks. Decor throughout was 5 star standard, they haven't scrimped at all with finishing touches such as the electric curtains, GHD hair stylers, Elemis products and lovely thick towels and robes. We will definitely be returning!

We ate at Purdeys restaurant and had the taster menu. Although it was nice it wasn't as good as when we ate there previously. Service lacked that little special touch and items on the menu were missing from our two courses.

We used the complementary spa which was again a lovely touch, but if I were to be picky I would say it needs updating a little to bring it up to the high standard of the rest of the Langdale estate.

Room Tip: Duet room 10 was Amazing! It has the biggest and best balcony, the views were breathtaking.

Having stayed at langdale a few times in the past we booked a duet suite at brimstone for the first night of our honeymoon en route to France and wish we had stayed put for the 2 weeks it certainly did not disappoint!
From the moment we arrived the experience felt special. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The building itself looks fantastic and our suite completely exceeded our expectations.
The room was stunning with everything and more you could expect from a luxury hotel, including some things you wouldn't, such as a GHD hair dryer and straighteners! The room was very luxurious and unique with 2 huge baths and 2 amazing showers and we loved the furniture, so stylish and comfy. The wood burning stove was lit by staff at turn down and was a great feature- especially, I imagine, in the winter! Very romantic!
We had a delicious meal in Purdeys (my husband says the best he has ever had) and our breakfast in bed was also fantastic!

The whole experience was one we will definitely be repeating sometime very soon but will definitely make the time to stay longer!!
What a fantastic memorable start to our honeymoon! Thank you brimstone!

We stayed here for one night from Friday 26th-27th July and loved it, the rooms were gorgeous and very modern and the surrounding areas were stunning and also 5 mins away from Ambleside town centre. Very peaceful. The rooms had a TV on the wall, alarm clock in which you could put you ipod/iphone onto and the bed was really comfy. The bathroom was a wet room and had lots of useful toiletries. Breakfast in the morning was very nice we had a full English breakfast, however there was also fruit, yogurts etc The only snag really was the drinks were a little on the expensive side.

However we will definitely be returning :)
