we had a fantastic stay...

We had a fantastic stay at The Sampson.  Check in was easy and convenient, the place was clean and cosy, and was fully equipped with tea, coffee and other essentials.  We especially loved the Melbourne Breakfast tea!

Rex & Jacqui were great attentive hosts and we would definitely stay again.  Thank you for a fab weekend!

What a lovely place you have

Hi Jacqui & Rex
What a lovely place you have.  We loved our stay at The Sampson - very homely and comfy.  It was such a pleasant experience to take the parents around Orange and be able to come home to such a warm home.
We all had such a great sleep in the warm and comfy beds! We wish our stay at The Sampson was longer.
Thank you again for the enjoyable stay!

every detail is to perfection

Jacqui & Rex,
Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home 'The Sampson'. We felt very comfortable and relaxed, did not want to leave.  Every detail is to perfection.  We would love to return.

SUPERB... A home away from home & more!

The ambiance as soon as we entered the property was....WOW. Clean, cosy, and oh so comfortable.
Candles provided to create a beautiful atmosphere of an evening, magazines, comfy lounge and the bed was just superb... slept like a baby.
Kitchen facilities had absolutely everything you would need. Bathroom towels & bedding were `high end '.
The property was in a great location, a nice walking distance to the town centre & Cook Park....a must visit. The Sampson owner, Rex, was so lovely and caring, making our stay even more magical.
We highly recommend this property if you're visiting Orange, you will not be disappointed.

beautiful cottage in a beautiful location

Stunning renovation and very tastefully decorated in a great location handy to everything. The hosts were helpful and provided everything we needed prior to arrival for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. We will definitely be back. Just perfect!

Impeccably renovated & decorated country cottage

Communication with Jacqui was fantastic in the lead up. The house is impeccably renovated and decorated... The beds were very comfy and the house was so cosy. We loved it for a country getaway! .

Bliss in Orange

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Sampson. What can I say we loved everything about it! Close to town and a small walk to well known Byng Street Cafe and Cook Park. The cleanliness was fantastic and our every need was catered for - from shampoo and conditioner and make-up removal pads, to the luxurious Sheridan bath sheet towels and crisply ironed bed linen to the candles in the living room. The decorating is second to none and we felt very spoilt and comfortable in this house.

Awesome home

Awesome home clean beautifully decked out, has everything you need for a dinner party and even plastic containers and snap lock bags for left overs!!  They have thought of everything. Well worth a stay I will definitely be back. Quiet and close to everything.:)

reminds me of home

We had a great stay, nice to see the 'Californian Bungalow' looking so great.  Reminds me of home. 
Thanks Rex & Jacqui.
PS - Loved having Queenie visit us.

Phil, Linda, Amy & Brendan [Sydney, NSW - May 2017]

it's been a perfect place

We have had a wonderful relaxing stay here.  The house is beautiful and has been lovingly decorated.  It's been a perfect place to stay with our 18 month old, who enjoyed the garden, the birds and meeting Queenie.
Thank you for all the recommendations - we enjoyed the Philip Shaw winery in particular!
Thanks so much.

Love to return

Rex and Jacqui were such awesome hosts who made us stay so comfortable and enjoyable. Even with last minute request for a late checkout, Rex responded super quickly and rescheduled the cleaning time so that we could enjoy Orange longer. Thanks again Rex! A truly 5 star experience!

We had a lovely time. Loved the cat Queenie. Queenie was very good company. She came to the house a lot.
Thank you very much. [Poppy - Aged 8]

Home away from home

Our second time at the Sampson and just as good as the first, if not better. We will be regular visitors to Orange and The Sampson will be our home away from home. It has everything we could want. We absolutely love the location and the cleanliness and luxury of the Sampson. Sitting in the back yard having a drink at the end of the day is just glorious.

— Kay [10/10]


We loved The Sampson, it is tastefully furnished and very comfortable, with all mod cons provided. The bedlinen and pillows were simply luxurious. We loved sitting in the outdoor area, tasting some of the local wines. The Sampson is ideally situated in Orange, within easy walking distance of restaurants and shops, yet in a very quiet neighbourhood. Perfect place to stay.

— Leanne [10/10]

well appointed, fresh and new

The property was well appointed and very comfortable. It was clean and everything was brand new.  The beds were presented beautifully and all the linen provided was of superior quality. The coffee was unexpected and the pantry was stocked with all the basics. Excellent

— Danielle [10/10]

beautiful house

We loved our stay in this beautiful house!  We wished our stay was longer than one night.  Our only disappointment was not seeing Queenie the cat.  Thank you so much.
PS - Just as I was writing this Queenie raced in the front door... this just made Violet's day!

such a beautiful home

We have had such a fabulous stay at 'The Sampson'.  Such a beautiful home, so well renovated, with such attention to detail.  Such lovely style.  Loved the location which was so close to everything.
Such a wonderful home to stay in whilst we explored my dear Mum's birthplace and where my Mum and Dad were married.
Love Orange and will most certainly be back to stay.  Thanks once again.
