Travellers' Choice
Langdon Hall offers a quiet and peaceful environment best suited for romantic get-aways that require an elegant setting. As a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux association, the property prides itself on creating a unique experience brimming with all the charm, character, cuisine, calm and courtesy you would find at the finest Relais & Chateaux property. Located one hour west of Toronto, Langdon Hall was built as a magnificent summer home in 1898 for the granddaughter of John Jacob Astor of New York City, a gentlemen who made his fortune in several areas of business including the Waldorf Astoria, the greatest hotel of its era. In 1987 Langdon Hall began its transformation into a hotel and now offers 60 guest suites, a full service spa, the only five-diamond award wining restaurant in Ontario. In addition to the main dining room the property features a casual bar and private dining rooms featuring wood-burning fireplaces, and 75 acres of expansive gardens and trails. For three consecutive years the readers of Conde Nast Traveller selected Langdon Hall as the number one hotel in Canada. Nearby amenities include championship style golf course, canoeing, theatre, horseback riding, biking and hiking.

I booked a large suite so that my sister and I could meet up with my father and stepmother to celebrate my stepmother's 80th birthday. Since there no additional rooms available my sister and I planned to go and stay at her house that evening. The location seemed perfect because it was close enough to my elderly parents home that they could drive there but close enough to my sister's home in Toronto that we could drive home and get up for work in good time the next morning. I live at a distance and we were all looking forward to this get together as given COVID we haven't been together in over a year. It was to be a special little family gathering. Instead, Langdon Hall called me and told me that they are short staffed and that their kitchen would not be able to prepare two additional meals that evening as room service. They did not apologize or seem to care that they were disappointing an 88 and 80 year-old who might not have more such family gatherings in their future. This is not the Langdon Hall I remembered from past visits. They are short-staffed to the point of being completely insensitive.

We have been lucky enough to pick up two one night cancellations this month. Both visits were outstanding. We have stayed previously at Langdon Hall and, if anything, it seems better than we remember. Rooms are very comfortable, nicely designed, spotless and quiet. The food and service ..... both spectacular while the setting and general atmosphere is the ultimate in relaxed sophistication. My only quibble is that, with feather mattress toppers, I find the beds uncomfortably soft.

This is our third time at Langdon Hall, first time during the summer. We came for our 16th wedding anniversary. We previously came in December 2020 and March 2021 when it was the wintertime. We stayed in the Cloister section, room 50 (second time). We love the ambiance, the cocktails, and as soon as you walk in, it's welcoming, warm, calm and friendly. We love the staff who make our stay special. This is a Relais and Chateau, and it's not like staying at a Ritz Carlton where you don't receive a personalized service. Here are some great things: - The pool: there are lots of empty seats, lots of towels, free cold water, and you can order cocktails and some snacks. Love the amazing salad with Ontario shrimps I had for lunch, you can taste the freshness of the herbs and flowers. - The Garden tour at 9:30 am: Jeremy is a great storyteller and you will not only discover the history about Langdon Hall and its founders but also who designed their beautiful gardens, and the thought process behind it. You can also pick some herbs to taste the freshness. I tried the basil and it's nothing like what you get from a PC box! - Meal substitution: if there's something from the lunch menu that you would like to have for dinner, you can ask the restaurant host if it's possible for the kitchen to cook it for dinner. They are not obligated to do this favour for you and the staff has always been very nice to a switch. We ask right after breakfast to give them a chance to see if they can do it. Many thanks to Evan, the breakfast maitre d', and Sarah from the front desk, for helping us. - The Service: outstanding all the time. We had an amazing service from the sommeliers - Faye, Jordan and Brandon (junior somm). We came prepared with our research from downloading the wine list online and had some questions. They were very knowledgeable to answer them. We spent 2 nights and the first evening, we dined outside and it was magnificent with the lights on and we were sitting under a tree. We asked if we could move inside to sit in the Wilks Bar to have our cheese plate (dessert) as an exception and the staff (Brandon & colleagues) were so nice to move us in. - We had a great chat with Nate, the bartender, who shared stories and tips on making cocktails. We learned so much from him. He took the time to chat with us and it was like talking with a new friend. - Best part: meeting Jeremiah the waiter during our second night for dinner. He was smart, cool and sleek, also gave us a new cocktail to try as my husband wanted something “different”. It wasn’t to our liking and felt embarrassed to return it. No worries, Jeremiah quickly came back with something else. He had great stories to tell about his experience at restaurants in Toronto and another Relais & Chateau in Quebec which we were curious about and he knew very well about their cuisine. Although he was very busy as LH was short staffed due to the pandemic, he took the time to check-in on us regularly. He also made our evening special and gave us comp champagne at the end of dinner. We were also seated next to another young couple and we had a great chat on travel and food during the meal. - Last great thing is we bumped into Chef Jason Bargerter, LH's award winning chef. We left the pool and he happened to be picking herbs in the garden himself! I quickly went up to say hello and asked for a picture as I follow him on Instagram. He was so nice, friendly, inquired where we were from. We had a nice chat and my husband asked him many questions about the culinary fine dining industry as eating at top level restaurants is one of our hobbies. We learned so much about his work and travels...what a memorable conversation we won't forget that made our stay special. We never thought we find the Chef in the garden! - Our Room (Cloister, #50): we noticed the hotel has new and very thick embroidered towels. They are fluffy, luxurious and nothing like what I have at home. We love the bathroom marble floor and counter. They also provide make-up remover in an individual packet. Great thick bathrobes, not the cheap and flimsy kind that won't keep you warm. The bed is so comfortable, and high up. It's plush with a thick duvet. Best part is having both sparkling and flat bottled water in our fridge. And I love the Nespresso machine. Also love the slippers. If you need anything, you call downstairs and they come up very quickly to deliver what you need, including the missing hair conditioner at 11 pm at night. The cleaning team is always gracious and says hello when they pass you along the corridor. I remember that as we were leaving, the cleaning lady noticed we were walking with our big luggage towards the staircase and reminded us there was an elevator. How kind was that! So these are the details you notice at LH that you may not find at a resort down south or at a posh hotel. - The trails: we really enjoyed walking along the 2.5 km trail, didn't do the 5 km this time. It’s better to do it in the summertime than winter as the path is clearly indicated. You see so many lovely trees, flowers, greens, berries, mushrooms and it's peaceful. We only ran into another couple who were cycling. The path is clearly marked as the grass is mowed, there are some coloured arrows so you won't get lost. It's great for burning off the calories from the big breakfast! Next time we return, we'll definitely have lunch as we've never done that before! We did the Breakfast + Dinner package. - People watching: it's great to see the fashion and what people wear for dinner! If you like dressing up for a party, this is the place. (Just a piece of advice: avoid the EasyPour across the street. Horrible and expensive food + wine for lunch, mean owner, we should have just eaten at LH for the same price.) Thank you again to the entire staff at Langdon Hall for making our trip a special one! Thank you for the lovely bottle of wine in our room. We shall be back!

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband for our 20th Anniversay July 2021. We stayed in cloister room 17. It was a lovely room with a walk out to a little seating area. It also had a wood buring firplace. Make sure you ask for some kindling if you plan to start the fire yourself or you can have someone come to the room to do it for you. The bathroom is large with vanity/ sink and a seperate tub and shower. There is also a completely seperate room with a toilet/sink. they have dyson hair dryers. The large tv swivels so you can watch it from the two arm chairs or the bed. There wwere some complimentary fresh coffee cakes/ bottles of water in the room upon arrival as well as robes for you to use. Keep in mind to access these rooms you have to decend stairs. We got a package that included dinner and breakfast for two. I believe the additional cost for the meals was $300 ( which included the tip for the meals) The dinner came with your choice of app entree and dessert. They also served bread, an amuse bouche and petit fours. The beakfast came with a croissant, entree , non alcoholic beverages and side - for a sode I got pemale bacon and there were 5 pieces. This is definitely fine dining. The utensils are real silver. I had the corn risotto which was delicious. The maple bacon at breakfast was also great. Keep in mind the scallop dish is served cold with poached scallops. There are some great outdoor seating areas by a pond and the outdoor terrace for dining in under an amazing tree. They have walking trails , croquet, horseshoes, free bike rental and a pool for recreation. It was a nice get away

This was our second stay at Langdon Hall during “the COVID Era,” and somewhere close to our 20th over the years. On our previous visit, I was a little disappointed and felt the experience was…diminished. But this most recent visit showed Langdon Hall operating near the top of its game again. We were originally scheduled to spend three nights over the Canada Day holiday, but the weather forecast was so brutal (rain, rain, rain) that we shortened it to two nights. This actually worked out well, as indoor dining had not yet resumed, and the novelty of eating every meal in your room wears off rather quickly, even though they do their best to make it feel special. We reserved our favourite summer room (a Cloisters queen with terrace, to be able to sit outside for an evening cocktail or morning coffee). The room (#16) was in great condition, save for a stained rug in the living area and a crack in the glass of one of the French doors. And for some reason, the closet doors had been removed, which we found…odd. It’s a darker room, but we like that it provides a cool, cave-like sanctuary from the summer heat. A small dining table and two chairs, beautifully set with linen, crystal, cutlery, and flowers, was set up in front of the fireplace. We had dinner there one night and breakfast one morning. The quality of the food and drinks at Langdon Hall continues to be exceptional. In fact, as I write this review, I am at another Relais and Chateaux property in Quebec. It’s a lovely place, but the food and drinks here are eclipsed by the creations of chef Jason Bangerter and his team, and mixologist Aaron Hatchell and his crew. There are just a few suggestions for improvement. The pool menu is a little too limited. I’d like to see more options available for snacks and lunch. Also, this is the second visit in a row where there has been no welcome amenity from the kitchen, no turndown service, and no San Pellegrino sodas in the refrigerator. The rates have gone up yet again, so Langdon Hall cannot afford to cut back on the little luxuries its loyal long term guests have come to appreciate. Regardless, we’ve already booked our next stay. Langdon Hall remains unrivalled in Ontario!
