My wife and I stayed for two nights in one of the fireside suites in Brimstone in January this year. The room was fantastic and especially good at the time of year (we were phoned before our arrival to be asked whether we would like the fire lit ready for us; we did, and the staff were happy to supply a new supply of logs whenever). It was snowing on our arrival so the setting and room were perfect in this environment. The lighting choices in the room are a bit faffy but this is only a minor comment and may be more to other peoples' liking. The lounge was good with free wine and snacks (although these should be restocked more often; that said, one of our friends phoned reception for more cheese and it arrived promptly so don't be afraid to ask - the service is good). The only disappointment is that the main leisure and spa facilities are difficult to use or book due to the fact that the Langdale allows other local establishments to use said facilities. It was nigh on impossible to get any spa treatments at short notice. The food in the restaurants was good but not exceptional. So, for accommodation and service I would give Brimstone a five but, over all, I can only offer a four.
