Summer Lodge has a very serious problem. It is far too good to recommend. We have just returned from a three night stay. We enjoyed wonderful food. I agree with another writer that the Chef is due a Michelin star. All of the staff are exceptionally good. Nothing is too much trouble and yet service is discreet . I might... More

Best service we've ever had in a hotel in the UK. Reception staff were on hand to greet us in the car park upon arrival. Always service with a smile, always offering help and suggestions, almost to the point of mind reading. The dining experience was top class. Sommelier was one of the top in the world. Breakfast was included... More

We stayed for a three night recharge of our batteries and were treated to great service and great food. The atmosphere is very calm and the hotel is very cosy. We were in a cottage for the first night which we found a little airless but it was very cosy. We then changed to a lovely room in the main... More

My wife and I had stayed at Summer Lodge once before. We were not disappointed then and most certainly were not disappointed this time either. To us, Summer Lodge ranks as one of the best UK hotels we have ever stayed in. Without exception the staff are extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable (and that includes the gardeners!). Every little detail... More

Dear fourpence4, thank you so much for this very kind review of your stay at Summer Lodge. It is lofty praise indeed to be written of as being one of the best hotels you have stayed at in the UK.

This was our second visit to summer lodge. It doesn't take much to make a guest feel special and the carnation group of hotels are getting it right. " lovely to see you back" from the recepsionist might seem superficial on face value, but when you are in holiday mode it's a nice touch. Our room was superb as ever... More

Summerlodge was delightful! set in beautiful dorset countryside. Very pretty gardens with lots of seating available to enjoy the views. Service and food was excellent. Staff were all so nice and made you feel very special and welcomed. The gym was rather small but had one of each of the main cardio equipments but no room for floor work and... More

Every now and then you need to get away and offload the everyday baggage and nonsense that crowds your life, and Summer Lodge is the perfect place to do this. Beautiful surroundings, first class service, excellent food and delicious wines and the spa is spoiling and relaxing. All the staff are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble and they... More

An idyllic place to stay away from it all - you can't even hear a road from here. The service is first class, the gardens delightful and the food outstanding. Heavenly! This was our third visit and we will return again. Even if the weather is not too good, you can enjoy the relaxing spa with its long, heated, covered... More
