we visited the restaurant for their taster lunch, the food was wonderful, every course had something special, the staff attentive, friendly and very professional. The petite fours were a wonderful surprise, had nothing like them before!

I visited the Samling for lunch and it was an amazing all round experience. The service is impeccable. The food, well I don't think I'll ever sample anything as good unless I go back. The price was very reasonable when you consider what you get for it. We paid £200 for an amazing 3 course meal, with appetizers, a bottle...

I've been fortunate to have eaten twice at The Samling in the last couple of weeks - and both times were absolutely super. Going for the lunch time taster menu on both occasions, the chef was helpful enough on the second visit to ensure for us that our 2nd menu was sufficiently varied from the first. The food was exquisite,...

Visited The Samling for an overnight stay and dinner. The hotel itself is beautiful and in a great location with impressive views of the lake. Our room was large and well appointed with great views and gorgeous bathroom. Took the option of spending time in the hot tub with champagne which was the perfect way to relax. We opted for...
