Had a two night stay here for a friends wedding. The refurbishment was not entirely complete (still one room to do - issues with the structure apparently) but that didn't dent the experience at all. The new restaurant has stunning views over the lake, with the terrace a great place to unwind in the evening. The rooms and suites have...

A Christmas present booked by my other half (please read my restaurant review) saw us visit The Samling for Dinner Bed and Breakfast. The concierge and reception were as professional as you could wish checking us in with speed and efficiency whilst maintaining that person touch. We were then shown up to our room which was absolutely beautiful. Tastefully decorated...

Booked in for an overnight stay for my Birthday and all I can say is WOW!!! From the service to the facilties this hotel delivers quality on all fronts. We stayed in the Rydal Water suite on the first floor which has fabulous views across to Lake Windermere. The renovations are still going on but very unobtrusive. On entering the...

First visit to this stunning location. We stayed in the Grasmere room and the view across the garden to the lake is delightful. The hotel has been tastefully decorated in very calming greys and blues and the view from the restaurant is spectacular. The service from all members of staff was smooth, efficient and welcoming. We had the 7 course...

We booked for a bank holiday weekend but they cancelled because their refurbishment was running behind schedule, so we changed our date as we were only going for one night but what a night! When we arrived, as an apology for cancelling, we were upgraded to a suite and found a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting for us. The refurbishment...

This is a magnificent setting for an hotel and whilst this was our first visit the design and execution of the refurbishment is clear to see with a superb dining room particularly on a clear day and luxurious bedrooms. We have reviewed the dining experience under the Restaurant but the breakfast, whilst extensive in choice was a little disappointing. The...

We booked a special offer, one night with 10 course signature menu. We were upgraded to the Kentmere Suite which is dog friendly,due to a change in the booking and given a free bottle of Champagne. The Hotel is still being renovated and will be stunning when finished, this did not detract from our stay. The accomodation and dining experience...

From the drive in you can tell that there has been recent refurbishing. You can also tell that you have arrived somewhere a little bit special. The entrance into the hallway of the house is understated. You immediately notice the silvery grey carpet and the quite white clean paintwork. Quickly checked in and up to the room. Beautiful, stunning view...

Overnight stay and 10 course sample menu , absolutely fabulous. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. We had standard rooms which were so lovely. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The Samling is in beautiful grounds with amazing views over Windermere. The food was exquisite, 100.00 for 10 courses, or an alternative 80.00 menu. Recommend this...

Junior suite "Coniston" was elegantly decorated, the view of the lake was spectacular and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The staff are very helpful and pleasant and keen to ensure you feel at home. The food is fantastic, the chef creates beautiful works of art with local produce. Pieces of theatre with eucalyptus smoke added drama, but...
