I decided to surprise my girlfriend for her Birthday and take her to the Lake District I wanted to make it extra special as I intended to propose! I did a fair amount of research and decided to book two nights away in the Samling. We were greeted by George who was very attentive and I felt that he would go out of his way to make our stay as memorable as it could be! We had tea for two with beautiful buttery shortbread whilst we waited for our room to be finished as we arrived a touch early.
George showed us to our room the Tyan! Attention to detail was impeccable the fire burning away in the corner with the single red rose I ordered on the pillow! My girlfriend was blown away ..just the reaction I wanted! I had booked the hot tub for 5pm and it is a must when u stay here, stunning view over lake Windermere whilst u relax in there!
Now on to the main event, dinner was Booked at 730 we were greeted with champagne and canapés whilst we decided upon the menu, we chose the alicate. The food was sublime and you could see that George thoroughly enjoyed telling us all about the different components! Some of the dishes looked like they had come from Heston! And really added to the drama and overall experience of the evening! Truly fantastic! Another really nice touch at the samling is the choice to have your breakfast served in your room which we did on both mornings. Staff quickly set up and served breakfast before leaving you and your loved one to enjoy the breakfast over the stunning views over the lake. Very Romantic.
Overall we had the most incredible Time at the Samling and myself and my now Fiancé! will most definitely be visiting again, a big thank you to all the staff for making our visit so special!
