This hotel is simply superb. Faultless. From the welcome on arrival to the friendly, attentive service from every member of the staff, the delicious food (why the chef does not have a Michelin star (or two) I cannot imagine), the comfort, the decor (though my wife thought the decor in our bedroom was too "fussy"); but that is a trivial...

I recently stayed at Summer Lodge and this is the best hotel I have stayed in anywhere, even amongst other Red Carnation hotels. The rooms are delightful and luxurious, the food is wonderful and the whole hotel is like a second home. However, it is actually the service that makes Summer Lodge so good. From being greeted in the car... More

From the minute Severino picked us up from the station in a classy Range Rover our experience at Summer Lodge just kept getting better. The hotel staff could not have done enough for us, the service and food was amazing and everyone remembered our names wherever we were in the hotel , from reception to the restaurant, very impressive. The... More

Lovely rooms with everything you could wish for. The rooms have great views and are very decadent but still with old world country charm. The gardens are beautiful and the staff are very helpful. It's the best breakfast and best afternoon tea we've ever had. This is a place that you absolutely must visit. It has stayed very true to... More

Summer Lodge has been our getaway place for 10 years and will be for the next 10. Even after 15 stays we are always amazed at how beautiful the hotel is, its perfect setting, exemplary service and world class food and wine. It is a credit to Charles, the general manger, that almost all the staff we met ten years... More

My boyfriend booked this as a gift for my birthday and it was absolutely fabulous!! We had an afternoon tea in the Whisky Lounge on arrival. The waiter was charming & funny and very attentive. We enjoyed a selection of fresh sandwiches along with baked scones & cakes, which were all quite light so didn't make us feel uncomfortably full.... More

Forget gastro-pubs and pretentious over-rated restaurants. This is the best restaurant in Dorset by a country-mile. The food is outstanding, the service extraordinarily good, and the wine list world-class. If you visit a 3 michelin star restaurant in France, this is what you will experience. And yet here they offer a three course lunch for £26 !

We stayed at Summer Lodge over 25 years ago and had fond memories so decided it was finally time for a return visit. The people who now run it really know what they are doing, they understand that if you want to create a special country house hotel experience you need three vital ingredients. 1. Rooms (public and private) must... More

My husband and I have just stayed at Summer Lodge to celebrate his birthday. From first to last everything was superb. The customer service was outstanding. Nothing was too difficult for the staff and we were treated with warmth, professionalism and attention. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and extremely comfortable with exquisite decor. We highly recommend Summer Lodge.
