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.

We returned to Langdon Hall over the Thanksgiving weekend for the first time since January for our umpteenth visit. We were impressed with the recent renovations undertaken by the Sarah Richardson Design team--Wilks' Bar, the sunroom, the solarium, and the parlour have been totally transformed with lighter, brighter colours and cheery fabrics. Aside from some physical changes, we were pleased that the exceptional service and extraordinary food and beverage options were as good as always. We enjoyed two delicious breakfasts (totally a la carte now), two magnificent dinners, and some delicious room service treats. One change we were disappointed by is the lackluster welcome amenity. In the past. we used to receive a half bottle of wine, a delicious treat from the kitchen, a welcome note, and a refrigerator stocked with complimentary San Pellegrino sodas. Now there is just the 1/2 bottle of wine and a generic, pre-printed welcome card. We've stayed at three other Relais & Chateaux hotels in the last year, and the welcome amenities there were much more special and personalized. During our stay we enjoyed hiking the trails, lounging around reading, and exploring the (insanely crowded) St. Jacob's Farmer's Market. It was nice to see some familiar faces in the dining room, but there were a number of new faces too, some of whom are still getting used to their roles/duties, I think. This is the case with the hospitality industry in general right now. We look forward to returning for a weekend during the Christmas season to enjoy the decorations and relax by the many roaring fires. How lucky we are to have a world class Relais & Chateaux property like Langdon Hall within an hour's drive of our home!

Langdon Hall is a lovely, relaxing inn where couples and friends gather. Service is impeccable, attentive and friendly without being overbearing. Services including the spa were top notch. Good walking and hiking trails. And the food, was delicious and beautifully prepared, especially the new fall menu (we stayed two nights and they switched from summer to fall menu for dinner). Overall 5 out of 5! I will be back.

Family lunch. Minute portions of pretentious food. Stale slice of bread, tea too weak to crawl out of the pot. Adequate service. Ridiculous prices. Lukewarm food nicely presented. Nice gardens. Washrooms far too distant from the dining area and difficult to find. Won’t return

I have actually eaten at Langdon Hall four or five times and we kept coming back for many reasons. This last time, last night for dinner, was less appealing. Don’t get me wrong there are many things that I like about langdon Hall. I find the staff friendly and Unpretentious. The ambience is luxurious and comfortable. Our appetizer, the truffle soup, was wonderful. Every spoonful was a delight. This time, for the first time, I found our main plate to be lackluster. I had the spring chicken. It was fine but it didn’t delight and entice me like my entrées have during pass visits. We also took issue with the quantity of the main plate. Of course we know that fine dining means smaller portions but we never felt they were too small. I noticed a marked difference In the quantity of the food on my plate. “Please sir, may I have more”. Another difference I noticed was in the flow of service. Previously, each course was delivered at the exact right time! A plate was taken away with a few minutes to appreciate the course just eaten and clear the pallet, and voilà, The next course arrived. The execution was perfect. This time they were long gaps in between courses. Something I’ve never experienced it previously at Langdon Hall. For all of these reasons, it may be time to find a new fine dining restaurant for special occasions. I am

4 adult couples (a family) just finished a two-night stay at Langdon Hall and have nothing but high praise. The food was absolutely exceptional - a visual and sensory feast with every bite on the plate packed with delicious flavor and impeccable seasoning. The portions were a little smaller than one might be used to but after the meal you feel full but not stuffed. From check in the check out every staff member was friendly and attentive and also very personable. Service at meals is first class, with all entrees brought out in unison which is a nice touch. The linens and beds are very comfortable with the highest quality sheets and towels. The dining room also permits corkage which is appreciated. The grounds, gardens, bike paths and pool are beautiful and perfect for a bike ride or a pretty walk. The spa has a lovely hot tub, steam room and sauna (shared /co-Ed) and the massages were excellent. The house is stunning with a variety of gorgeous sitting rooms to sit and enjoy a drink or a game of backgammon. Having eaten at many top restaurants I can say the dinner at Langdon Hall is one of the best and not to be forgotten anytime soon. If there is one area to improve I would suggest ensuring the rooms have some real cream or milk to enjoy with in-room coffee - and breakfast service is a bit slow but we didn’t have anywhere to rush to so it didn’t detract from our experience. We also had dinner at Cambridge Mill which was a great experience as well and is 10 minutes away.

Heard many great things about Langdon Hall. Generally that is very difficult to "live up" to the hype. The rooms are clean and spacious. The fridge was acting up, one call and a new fridge delivered within minutes. The room is country/modern style. No complaints. Room #19. One king, couch, fireplace on the bottom floor. The grounds are perfect for those wanting green spacious living. Surrounded by trails, activities and a pool. The meal was incredible! I repeat it was incredible. Worth every cent. The entire dining experience with wonderful. Each person we encountered were professional, knowledgeable and welcoming. We had a gluten and diary free diet and it wasn't an issue. The restaurant is recognized nationally for its excellence and that is well-deserved. If you like to hike, bike, move or find a quiet country setting to read a book or chill out Langdon Hall is the place.

Grounds are lovely, including the pool area; many little nooks/seating areas in which to relax with a book or simply enjoy the outdoors. Lots of opportunities for activity if you like, and no pressure if you do not. The kitchen garden is fun to explore, though as gardeners ourselves we chuckled at the fiction that it supplies all the vegetables for the restaurant - it is all part of the illusion! Our room was spacious but a bit tired; could use a refresh/repaint. Spa services are average. Staff are relentlessly cheerful and generally helpful. Service of the rooms is a bit haphazard (ice bucket and dirty glasses left behind for two days; waste baskets not always emptied) - not a big deal, but not what I would expect from a Relais et Chateaux property. The restaurant is renowned: it is why one would come here in preference to another country inn. While it lives up to its reputation in many respects, it is sadly disappointing in others. They are very precise with respect to reservation times (quite properly so) - but one expects a perfect flow of service in return, and that can be sadly lacking. Brilliant and imaginative appetizers (scallops; heirloom tomatoes) were high points; young chicken was an overcooked disappointment for which we had to wait almost an hour (we were told three times that the mains would be coming soon; not something I have experienced in 5 star establishments!) The affectation of having your young student waiter describe everything on your plate in excruciating detail is unnecessary and a bit gauche. The wine list is huge and contains some gems; if you are lucky and get an alert and sympathique sommelier, you will be well served, as we were one evening. If not - well, you will pay a lot for a wine you could probably have picked yourself. In short - though enjoyable and occasionally charmingly original, the dining room (and indeed the Inn as a whole) seems to be unsure what it is intended to be, and this results in a sort of cognitive dissonance: on the one hand, you are a guest in an English country house (cosily down at heel), on the other you are at a very formal French restaurant with exacting standards. The ambivalence is reflected perfectly at dinner, for which guests are requested to dress with a degree of formality. Maybe a third of the patrons dressed accordingly, the rest were in shorts, tee shirts, etc. Enforcing a dress code is notoriously challenging for restaurants and resorts but - gosh - they manage to do it in the Caribbean, why not here? Perhaps Langdon Hall is experiencing post-pandemic challenges that will diminish over time; but we were anticipating a 5 star experience and rated it 3.5.

The food was amazing- so fresh and they were very accommodating with my husband's and his dietary restrictions. They also accommodated me when I wanted a certain salad which was excellent. Th staff are so kind and friendly including the spa staff!!! We go every year and we love it!!! The choice of " Au lit" linens and towels is also excellent in the rooms.

Very romantic. Great rooms - spacious, comfortable with all the right touches. Wood fires, superior beds, traditional luxury. The grounds are beautiful, nice hiking paths, beautiful pool and spa is very relaxing (make sure to use the shower in the jacuzzi!). Massages and body scrubs are very good - no where as good or memorable as Hammam Spa or other luxury spas , but very good. 2 Dinners included and 2 Breakfast - makes for a great package. Dinners have some true 5 star dishes - Smoked Beef is a must and the Albacore Tuna with Eggplant is a memory you won’t forget. Truffle Soup, Scallops and Tartare showcase the chefs brilliance. Some misses: I wouldn’t recommend the Young Chicken - it tastes fine, but lacks anything special or unique and the Carrot Porridge has no place as an entree at a restaurant of this prestige. Breakfast under the Elm Tree is unforgettable. Great wine list, - one sommelier , Juan I believe is particularly knowledgeable, warm and lovely - ask for him at dinner and check out his wine tasting while you are there. Another miss: we came back one evening from dinner and they had missed turndown service in our room. Small, yes, but an expectation and a much appreciated part of the luxury experience you pay for. The staff is the highlight, some standouts include the breakfast team, the dinner service staff, the bartender with his dashing moustache. All made for a wonderful stay.

Did the one-night package of room, dinner and breakfast for my husband's 75th birthday. The staff made it very special without being too fussy. We had a lovely room in The Cloisters, enjoyed the salt-water pool and two fabulous meals. Try the smoked beef if you like steak; it was delicious. The whole experience was worth every dollar. On the wish list for 2023.
