My daughter and I had a fabulous overnight stay with dinner and breakfast. We felt welcomed and looked after by friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was top quality and tasty, within a fabulous dining room setting to celebrate a special occasion. Beautiful gardens to walk around in. Lovely walks locally too.

We are so happy that we have returned to the Summer Lodge this August. Terrible weather meant that we were forced to relax at the hotel and make use of the spa and bar…. It’s a hard life! It really feels like coming home. The staff are so kind and attentive. Our Labrador, Jessie, even got a sausage of her... More

I will have to admit I was a bit worried when a place suggest jackets to be worn at dinner, I guessed it would be the sort of establishment that still has fish knives the clientele would be blue rinsed women hanging onto old fogies in tweed jackets with leather patches on the elbows, so with me turning up in...

Summer Lodge is an absolute gem. We stayed in the coach house it was comfortable and very clean . The staff were very pleasant and friendly . The food in the restaurant was suburb. The only issue I had was when the cheese board was brought to our table they did not have Cheshire cheese or had even heard of... More

Evershot1, General Manager at Summer Lodge, responded to this review

Dear KJmelley, thank you for your kind review of Summer Lodge. Please accept my apologies for the fact that my Eastern European staff did not know that Cheshire produces one of the oldest cheeses in British history. The reason we don't feature this venerable cheese, is that we only serve local cheeses (with the exception of the Stilton) and most... More

We took advantage of a one-night dinner, B&B offer. The drive through the Dorset lanes was a challenge but made our arrival so worthwhile. A member of staff immediately came and helped me park the car in a small, full car park! Check in was quick and easy, our room vast and comfortable. If you have stayed in other Red... More

From the moment one drives through the narrow gateway Summer Lodge is an awesome experience. Nothing is too much trouble for the happy attentive staff and the country house hotel is aptly named as everything about this building oozes the English countryside. Beautifully furnished and decorated throughout every room, corridor and dining area help make this a perfect hotel to... More

Summer Lodge is the best hotel I have ever stayed - the suite in the Coach House was superb with mind boggling attention to detail from the shortbreads in the tin by the bed, the umbrellas and wellies outside the doors to the heated bathroom floors and Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries. Each room is decorated differently with everything in accord.... More

Summer Lodge has been a great discovery! My fiancé and I have stayed there for 2 days and have absolutely enjoyed it. The service was very warm and subtle- the staff is mostly international,a lot of eastern european faces and accents which I absolutely love and enjoy, French as well - all very nice and professional. I liked the room... More

As always we had a wonderful stay at the amazing Summer Lodge! From the delicious food in the restaurant to the excellent service from Charles and the team, everything was faultless!! We cannot thank the staff enough! This was our second visit this year and we are already counting down to our next visit for our anniversary in October!!

I stayed here overnight with my husband for his 40th birthday. The hotel is beautiful with stunning gardens surrounding the property. Service was faultless from the moment we checked in. The food was amazing.
