We have just had a couple of nights at the Samling and overall thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room - Tethera - overlooked the front of the hotel with 3 windows giving stunning views over the Lake. We had breakfast in our room on the second morning and it was delightful to sit there, relax and enjoy the view. The... More

We decided spend a night at The Samling just before Christmas as a treat, we only live in Kendal so could have booked a taxi but on seeing a deal with Secret Escapes decided to stay over. We arrived at 3pmish on a Sunday afternoon as Sunday lunches were finishing, we struggled to park the car then carried our luggage... More

Stayed here for a night in Manmire. The room is fantastic, with a private-ish patio overlooking Windermere. I say private-ish because the hotel has a hot tub that is used on a rota basis, and this overlooks Manmire's patio, but there's no line of sight contact so it's mostly secluded. The room itself is split on two levels with the... More

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We were upgraded from a luxury room to a suite-Pym-right at the top with fantastic views. The room was immaculate (but was let down a little by a couple of the tables and the sofa being quite shabby). The bed and decor were great though and the views wonderful! It was nice to... More

This is a beautiful hotel with excellent staff in a lovely location. We booked a two night stay and were delighted with our room overlooking Lake Windermere [ although there were no drawers so we couldn't completely unpack ]. However, despite having eaten in outstanding restaurants around the globe for almost 40 years, we found the dinner menu here completely... More

The food, the room, the hillside hot tub, the breakfast - most of all, the service - were all first class. Far from our first Michelin starred experience, but certainly one of the very best. The balance of warmth and professionalism was absolutely spot-on.

The Lakes is spoiled with great places to eat, and I've been spoiled by eating in a lot of them. The culinary highlight remains L'enclume, but as a complete package, The Samling was one of the best Sunday afternoons I've had for years. The food was excellent - at the cost or reputation you wouldn't expect anything else. However, the... More

I work as a head chef in a 2 rosette restaurant in the area and am always looking for places to eat. Iv eaten here many times in the past but this was the first since they regained its michelin star...As a chef it's an urge to be picky which my girlfriend hates but everything was faultless. The food, the... More

We stayed here as a present for our 10th wedding anniversary in Feb 2014. We stayed in Barker Brow, and although it was a bit creaky, we thought this just added to its charm, we had a wonderful time. As we read some of the previous reviews, we decided to take our German shepherd dog with us. The hotel were... More
