Luxury hotel, first class service and exceptional food. Spectacular views, friendly staff, and a real treat for our birthdays. Very conveniently located. If you want to treat yourself then you will not be disappointed - just hope the sun shines.

My wife and I visited here during the busy summertime. The hotel is fairly difficult to find and it is up a poorly marked driveway. We used the hotel's directions which could have/should have been more precise. We had a suite/cottage room-Manmire. It was very nice at first glance but was poorly laid out. The bedroom was upstairs in a... More

Not being professional critics but enjoying very good food, we chose "The Samling" to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Our suite was large and comfortable, absolutely everything you could think of was waiting for us at the end of a long walk over the fells, right down to a tray of highly polished red apples! But the highlight of the evening... More

The restaurant at the Samling is excellent - I had the lunch tasting menu which is incredible value and enjoyed wonderful service, together with excellent food and fantastic views of lake Windermere. This restaurant deserves its star and I would return without hesitation!

We had a really special night here, the view down the lake from our room was stunning and the chance to look at it having Breakfast was an extra treat. Dinner was an amazing experience with attention to detail and service. Nothing was too much trouble. My only slight disappointment was the hot tub which was only lukewarm and could... More

Stayed for one night in a suite with dinner included in the rate. The Hotel is reached via a steep driveway that is quite tricky to access with a low car, the Hotel is in the process of building a new driveway that should improve this in the near future. Suite was nice, food fabulous, we had breakfast in our... More

First Impression - The grounds and drive up to the hotel were impressive, upon pulling up we were greeted by name and asked if we needed assistance with anything. We were shown to our room and again asked if we needed any help, a short time later we were telephoned to ask if we were happy with everything and if... More

We were loking for somewhere special to celebrate an extra special occassion. Although born near to the Lake District, we moved away nearly 40 years ago. Everything about our stay - room, views, meal, but especially the staff, were exceptional. A new restaurant should be open in early 2017 and we will be back.

We stayed for our 5th wedding anniversary and it was a lovely treat! From the minute we opened the door to the minute we left, the staff was professional, friendly and helpful. We stayed in Tyan, a delightful blue and white room with a view over the lake. Apparently the whole hotel is going to be refurbished in January; it... More
