Breakfast in the room the following morning was lovely. Everything was perfect and we can't...

We had an amazing experience, the personal service was exceptional with a special mention to our waiter for dinner. The chef showcased his skills and local produce in his taster menu.

Having been disappointed with dinner at the hotel a stones throw away we managed to book the Samling at short notice and are glad we did.

Just celebrated my husbands birthday at The Samling and we both loved the place. Set in pretty grounds this lovely small hotel is friendly and welcoming.
