We arrived early and went for a lovely walk straight from the car park. Our room was lovely, over 3 levels. Had champagne in the hot tub enjoying the amazing view of Windermere. I started my evening with the most delicious champagne cocktail. We had the prestige taster menu, every dish was delicious and the service was impeccable. Overall a...

I had wanted to visit this place for a long time and, on the morning of my birthday, I was eagerly awaiting our luncheon taster menu. We had a warm welcome, the views over Windermere were lovely and I thoroughly appreciated the modernistic artwork throughout the public rooms and restaurant. The food was good, in general (although there were a...

This was our first visit to The Samling and what a fabulous hotel it is. We stayed in the Tethera room which was spacious and has splendid views of lake Windermere. We made our way downstairs for afternoon tea, as we were having the taster menu later that night we decided to go for a slimmed down version. The sandwiches...

I was looking for a special venue to celebrate our Ruby wedding in the Lake District, we were recommended many hotels but we certainly made the right decision in choosing the Samling. A relaxing atmosphere was immediately apparent on checking in which was quick and professional with our luggage delivered to our room and the car parked. On entering our...

We stayed here recently and have to say that the hotel lived up to our expectations, our room was large clean and well appointed with stunning views of the lake. The staff were very helpful and made you feel at home, nothing was to much trouble for them. We took advantage of the offer to have breakfast in our room...

I treated eight of my friends to Champagne Afternoon Tea to celebrate a special day in my life. Some of my friends had specific dietary requirements, all of which were noted when I made the reservation and excellently provided for on the day.

We have read some previous comments that said the hotel was tired and needed an upgrade, but we stayed in the same room as our last visit ten years ago and have to disagree. There were new curtains and chairs but it was as lovely, luxurious and comfortable as last time if not more so. A full Sky package was...

Well, I have never done this before, a new one to me. I have stayed at many wonderful and exlusive hotels but never have I been quoted over £500 for a one night stay out of season in the English Lakes. I didnt even book but how pretentious can you get than this - no matter how good their food...

As usual there are some less than positive reviews about this hotel but as these are far outweighed by the excellent reviews I had high expectations. I can say that my expectations were more than met. Fabulous room with fantastic views of Windermere. We were more than happy with décor, furnishings and extras ( fruit, water, high quality of toiletries)....
