From the moment we arrived at Summer Lodge we were very impressed. The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive, and they took the trouble to remember our names. We stayed in one of the more basic rooms, but it was still very well presented and equipped and we were very comfortable. The lounge areas were again very well presented and... More

If you are looking for peace and tranquillity away from the madd(en)nig Rush then look no further. This is a really lovely place to stay. In the heart of a beautiful small village with a magnificent deer park (through which one is entitled to walk)just up the road, a great pub The Acorn (belonging to the hotel)for real ale and...

I have very little to say about Summer Lodge except how wonderful it and its staff are. From the food, to the welcome we received, there was nothing that didn't live up to our expectations. The cake that was delivered from my girlfriend's birthday was also superb. They also pampered our dog with his own bed and treats! A superb... More

We have just visited Summer Lodge again for a short 2-night winter break. I didn't think that this excellent hotel could get any better, but they always manage to surprise and delight us whenever we stay. The dining room has been refurbished and is more elegant than ever, and Chef's menu, using only locally sourced produce, is utterly delicious -... More

My colleagues and I visited Summer Lodge again this year for our annual meeting. Afterwards I asked them if they had any comments on how to improve the hotel. Unfortunately, we just couldn't think of anything significant. The food was excellent with out top favourite being a crab starter with beetroot. Then, of course, there is the cheese which is...

Having dined here in December, my wife said that she would like to stay at Summer Lodge at some point in the future. As we only live 20 miles away I didn't think that this was likely, but because of personal circumstances and a landmark birthday we found ourselves enjoying an over night stay. The dinner was once again of... More
