We were somewhat hesitant about returning to the Samling. We stayed 10 years ago when it was in the ownership of Tom and Jocelyn Maxfield and it was superb. For a period we heard it had declined by decided to revist after we heard it was again in private ownership.
How pleased we are that we did! With a new GM who has an eye for a detail and a very talented new chef our stay was superb.
Met outside on our arrival by the friendly staff we immediately felt at ease. Our room was spacious and offered fantastic views of the Lake, particularly when taking room serivce breakfast each morning.
We had dinner in the restaurant, a-la-carte on the first evening and the tasing menu on the second. The food selection and quality was simply outstanding, I will be astonsihed if the hotel does not attain a michellin star next year as its former sister hotel Seaham Hall did when owned by the Maxfields.
We will certainly not wait another 10 years before returning especially as they have exciting plans to expand in 2013
