We stayed for one night last Saturday and cannot fault the hotel in any way. It was the little extras which made the hotel exceptional rather than just excellent - from the ice bucket and slices of lemon brought to our room when we arrived to the bottles of mineral water given to us at checkout for the journey home....

We recently stayed at Summer Lodge for a two-night 'mini-moon' and had the most wonderful stay. Our room was the perfect blend of romantic and cosy with a very large bed and very comfortable pillows - just what you need for a good night's sleep. All the food was excellent. We dined in the restaurant both evenings and were offered... More

Lovely hotel & location for a peaceful break, BUT it was so quiet on the dining room that WE COULD HEAR THE GENTLE HUMMING OF THE FRIDGE MOTOR. We don't mind peace & quiet, BUT FELT THAT WE HAD TO WISPER. A little gentle BACKGROUND MUSIC would have made the atmosphere much more pleasant. We decided to seek somewhere in... More

Dear Soliman615, thank you for your review of Summer Lodge. I am delighted to see how quiet you found Summer Lodge to be. We go to a lot of effort to make it so. Most of our guests visit this extremely beautiful, unspoilt, undeveloped and sparsely populated part of the world precisely because peace and quiet are not easily found... More

We live only an hour away and have been to Summer Lodge for several special occasions before. This time was an overnight stop for my 60th birthday. Everything from the moment we arrived to the moment we left was just lovely. The food is extremely tasty and well prepared and presented. All the staff are brilliant and the rooms clean... More

We have been to Summer Lodge a few times but never for a one night stay. This was just as relaxing as previous stays. Food is really delicious and varied, they even cope well with my cream allergy. The Staff are lovely and have time for you. I've never seen a cleaner there on any visit but it is spotless.... More

Had a very enjoyable stay here. Room was comfortable, staff were lovely and the spa was very relaxing. One gripe though... While the food was beautifully prepared and cooked, the prices are as high as some of the best restaurants in London. For example, the a la carte is as expensive as the two Michelin-starred Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. Fine... More

Dear digger44, thank you for your review of Summer Lodge. Your statement regarding our food prices is not altogether correct. At Dinner, the average starter price is £17.38 and here it is £16.33. Whilst the average main course price at Dinner is £39, at Summer Lodge, it is £25. I am delighted to see how much you enjoyed your "...very... More

This is a beautiful hotel set in a chocolate box setting... You expect to see someone from a Thomas Hardy novel ambling up the driveway! Beautifully appointed rooms. Wonderful areas in the hotel and of course the food ..... Delicious. If you want to stay in a quintessentially English Country style homestead.... This is the place to be. I am... More

My friend and I booked another wonderful spa day last week and as always were warmly welcomed by Rosemary and her dream team of therapists. From the moment you enter the spa I always feel I have shrugged off all pressures and stress as I float into relaxation and pamper mode.

From the moment we arrived we knew we were somewhere special! The hotel and staff are a joy. The public rooms are beautifully decorated but incorporating very comfortable seating areas in both lounge and bar. The bedroom was charming and the outlook perfect, over the immaculate gardens and out to the surrounding countryside. We enjoyed a walk around the pretty... More

We booked two rooms for my sister, mother and myself for a birthday celebration. From arriving in the car park, where we were greeted and bags unloaded and carried, to leaving and being given a small bag of water for our journey, it was a pure pleasure. The rooms were perfect with lots of small touches like fresh fruit, water,... More
