Landoll’s Mohican Castle was a Loudonville, Ohio hotel featured on Season 3 of Hotel Hell.
Though the Landoll’s Mohican Castle Hotel Hell episode aired in July 2016, the actual filming and visit from Gordon Ramsay took place in late 2015.
It was Season 3 Episode 8 of Hotel Hell, which makes it the last episode of Hotel Hell to air on TV. The show was not renewed after this episode.
Landoll’s Mohican Castle is located in Loudonville, Ohio.
Loudonville is a small town of just a few thousand residents. However, it’s located near some beautiful nature.
It’s also about halfway in between Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, so there’s pretty of opportunity to attract some city slickers.
Jim and Marta Landoll are the owners, which is where the name comes from. The other part of the name is based on the nature – it’s located by Mohican Memorial State Park.
They sold their business to build the castle.
Jim had made a promise to himself that when he made enough money, he would buy a castle. I gotta be honest – that’s a pretty awesome goal.
The castle cost $6 million to build, so it certainly wasn’t cheap. This castle is really fit for a king.
Sadly a fire burnt down the restaurant, and the insurance had run out just days prior to the fire.
After building the castle, the couple was divorced within a year.
Marta is now in charge of running the hotel, along with the couple’s son Jimmy.
The other staff members praise Marta and her work ethic.
Jimmy is the cook and says he is the manager but doesn’t do much.
Jimmy and Marta have no experience in the hotel industry.
Gordon Ramsay arrives and is impressed by the grounds and the castle.
When he enters the lobby, he is greeted by Crystal.
There is a gift shop in the lobby, which Gordon finds attractive.
There is an events hall run by staff member Melody, who has no background in event planning.
As Gordon explores the ground, he finds a T-rex statue that is hideous.
Gordon meets the owner Marta outside the main entrance.
She explains how the property was now only worth $2 million when they bought it for $6 million. That’s a huge loss! No wonder the Landoll’s Mohican Castle Hotel Hell episode exists.
Marta aids Jimmy in the kitchen. Gordon wants to host a wedding at the castle in a few days with 100 guests.
Roxanne and Eric are the wedding couple and come to the hotel to meet Gordon.
They don’t do samples of food because of the size of the kitchen.
The bride looks around and sees stained chairs and mismatched linens.
Jimmy comes out without his chef’s coat and says he only wears it if he delivers food.
Jimmy doesn’t know how to cook most items on the menu but tells Gordon he googles anything he doesn’t know how to make. That’s not really the person I want cooking at my wedding…
Jimmy cooks some dishes for Gordon.
He prepares an undercooked salmon and an over-cooked steak.
Gordon reassures the couple that the food will be better when it comes time for their wedding. Let’s hope so…
Gordon comes down to observe a dinner service.
He finds Marta in the kitchen with sous chef Grant.
The kitchen is chaotic, and servers take the food to the wrong tables.
After dinner, Gordon tells Jimmy that no one takes him seriously even though he is the manager.
Marta writes a letter to Jimmy telling him what she needs from him.
The room service ordered for the bride and groom is disgusting.
After Marta gives her letter to Jimmy, Gordon tells Jimmy he needs to step up.
Gordon Ramsay arranges for a consultant to come in and help the couple find a head chef.
Somehow, the hotel manages to turn things around. The bride is happy with the food and decor on the wedding day.
Gordon doesn’t want Marta to work; he just wants her to relax and enjoy the day.
Before Gordon leaves, he asks Jimmy to promise to stay on track.
So was the Hotel Hell Landoll’s Mohican Castle episode a success? Keep reading our update to learn what happened next and if Landoll’s Mohican Castle is still open in 2023 and beyond.

Now that we’ve recapped the Landoll’s Mohican Castle Hotel Hell visit from Gordon Ramsay, let’s talk about what happened to the hotel after Gordon left Ohio.
To help the hotel get on the right track, Gordon Ramsay had a consultant and chef stick around for a few months after his visit.
Landoll’s Mohican Castle has been very successful after the show.
In addition to the restaurant and hotel rooms, they’re booking over 100 weddings a year, which is a huge boost to business.
It’s become a real wedding destination, which is great for the bottom line.
This success allowed them to expand the hotel, as they added a bunch of new suites to give them more space.
They began working on a set of 14 new suites in 2017.
These suites, named The Stables, were officially completed and opened in August 2018.
Collectively, these new suites essentially doubled the size of the hotel.
Was adding those rooms a good investment? Well, it seems to be…
