I am fortunate to have stayed in some lovely hotels all around the world and in the UK. In this country, we are spoiled for choice and standards are high (if you are prepared to pay). So how does one good hotel set itself apart? For some-one like me who seldom writes a report on Trip Advisor, what makes a... More

My wife and I stayed two nights earlier this month and what a gem. Everything a country house hotel should be. Beautifully maintained, wonderful attentive staff and food to die for. We stayed in the main house which I suspect has the older rooms but decorated perfectly with a large usable bathroom. Little touches such as shirts left on a... More

Once again we had the most wonderful weekend at Summer Lodge. South African hospitality, delicious food, most knowledgeable sommelier and friendliest and most helpful staff all conspired to make this hotel our favourite in the UK.

My wife and I stayed one night with dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The entire experience at Summer Lodge was so good, it left us wondering why all high-end hotels aren't like this. You will probably have stayed at grander places although that's not the point. The overall impression, created by the service, food and ambience was perfect. There... More

Beautiful place with a quirky country manor feel,lovely large rooms with smaller offshoots. Our room up one floor and overlooking the spa was comfortable with well chosen colours and a large bathroom.Basically what you would expect for a Hotel owned by the red carnation group, no expense spared on decor,amenities or comfort. Personally would like a small mini bar in... More

This is the second time we have visited Summer Lodge for a special occasion, and what a treat it was. The staff were so welcoming, the gardens were beautiful and the restaurant was fabulous. It was a delight to sit in the conservatory admiring the views over the garden and enjoying the most beautifully cooked food. The service is without... More

We (myself, my husband and our daughter ) stayed in a lovely upstairs room in the Summer Lodge Coach House for a weekend in July 2014 The room had a dual-aspect,looking over the front lawns, and the website photos do the hotel justice at all, as they make it look rather chintzy. In reality the decor in the bedrooms was... More
