We visited Langar Hall on route to a longer break elsewhere after recommendations by friends and were not disappointed. Although we were slightly apprehensive having read some of the reviews and in particular the rather forthright replies of the owner, we need not had been concerned. The hotel is rather eccentrically decorated in places but this together with the notes in the bedrooms written by the owner about the hotel and individual rooms makes one feel that you are staying in a private country house rather than a hotel. This individual approach was echoed by the warmth of the welcome and the care shown by the staff
The bedrooms were very comfortable, with good quality linen and beds, well decorated, in an individual style and well appointed. Not only were the bedrooms comfortable but also incredibly quiet. This coupled with a comfortable bed and curtains that excluded every shaft of light meant I had the best night’s sleep for some time.
If there was one disappointment then it was to be found in the food. The cream tea on our first afternoon was good and the breakfast also (it would have been excellent had the orange juice been fresh) but the dinner on the one night we ate there was rather mixed. Your views on the quality of a meal can often be influenced by individual choices and simple bad luck. Although the quality of produce and presentation were excellent, the preparation left something to be desired. The starter of foie gras was the smallest by some way that I have ever had. The main course was one of those which on reading the menu you think that the chef must be a genius or trying too hard. Unfortunately it was the latter and I could almost hear the judges on Master Chef commenting on too many flavours on the plate. On the other hand my wife thought her meal was excellent and the cheese plate which I finished off with was everything the first two courses had not been – generous and well balanced.
Having said all of that the real question is would we stay there again? Having moved on the next day and stayed at a city centre hotel of a large chain I very quickly wished that we could have stayed longer at Langar. The answer is a very definite yes, we would stay there again and will be recommending it to friends.
