Langdale Hotel and Spa continues to invest in hotel accommodation despite economic slowdown

The Langdale Estate, which began life as a small woollen mill in the 17th Century is now home to one of the Lake District’s most sought after and contemporary hotel destinations thanks to continuing support from Barclays Commercial Bank in Manchester.

The award-winning 35-acre Langdale Estate set in the heart of the English Lake District is a natural woodland haven with streams, tarns, dotted with massive millstones and offers an impressive choice of Lake District hotel, self catering and timeshare accommodation, together with two distinctly styled restaurants and bars, a traditional pub plus extensive leisure and spa facilities www.langdale.co.uk

During the previous two winter periods, substantial backing from Barclays Commercial has enabled the Langdale Hotel and Spa to complete two phases of bedroom refurbishment. The third phase is now set to take place this winter which will see all 57 bedrooms completed to a very high standard including some feature rooms like The Attic Room making a break from that normally found in Lake District Hotels

“In the current economic climate it is important to still be making the correct long term decisions and Barclays Commercial Bank are supporting us in this,” says Sales and Marketing Director Dan Visser. “The support from our bankers has been invaluable in making the bedroom refurbishment happen at an uncertain economic time. The results so far are encouraging and the response in terms occupancy and rate increase is where we would like it to be which is encouraging.

He continued, “Since hotel sales are based on market share we must always strive to offer value for money and by having high quality bedroom stock to match the extensive leisure and spa facilities on the estate we can provide a combination of high quality rooms and facilities to compete with the best in this area. Our relationship with Barclays Commercial Bank and their “can do”, proactive approach, will continue to be an important part of our future growth.”

Steve Bentley, Relationship Director for Barclays Commercial Bank in Manchester said: It's been great that we've been able to support Langdale during these difficult economic times and very much demonstrates that Barclays is open for business and committed to the Cumbrian leisure and tourism industry.

"The Langdale Hotel and Spa is regarded as the most unique resort in the Lake Districtand I am looking forward to seeing the third and final phase of development take place this winter.

"Our support for this business underlines Barclays commitment to helping both existing and new customers with their financial requirements ensuring they are supported during the current economic downturn."
