My wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at this lovely hotel and I have to say, we were very impressed. The views, the service and most notably the food were absolutely first class. We experienced the taster menu with wine flight, which we thoroughly enjoyed and would have no hesitation in recommending this marvelous place to anyone visiting...

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. The ambience was quiet quality, we had a suite in the grounds with a wonderful view over Lake Windermere and enjoyed our pre dinner drinks in the hot tub....

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. It has lovely views and the lounge and dining room are beautifully decorated in keeping with the area. Our food was fabulous and the service friendly and informal but first class. The only slight...

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. The hot tub has the best view ever and a glass of bubbly too makes the experience an utter delight. The tasting menu was exquisite and the matched wines are exactly that. The staff...

There is much to praise about the hotel – the food was outstanding, and all the staff were unfailingly friendly, helpful and efficient. BUT, the accommodation in Barker Brow junior suite left much to be desired and its £550 per night charge (DBB) really cannot be justified. The suite is on two floors. The bedroom upstairs presents the major problems,...

We booked here as a last get away before our baby is due. We had one night with dinner, bed and breakfast. The stay was perfect from start to finish. Despite the restaurant currently being re-done we heard no works going on, and it did not impact on our stay at all apart from seeing it on initially driving up....

Comfortable room, although a little dark and lacking plug points, but fabulously comfy bed and great shower and bathroom. Hot tub with a view to die for over Lake Windermere.
