Booked for a one night stop between London and Cornwall as we're old and don't want to sit in the car for hours on end. What a surprise, what a great surprise. Beautiful country hotel with an excellent cream tea on arrival. Occupied room 2 which is absolutely delightful. Our evening meal was superb and then adjourned to the whiskey... More

This visit in late September was our second of this year, our being myself, my Wife and our two Springer Spaniels. Summer Lodge is a five star Hotel, so little point in going into all the detail as it basically does what it says on the tin. However, it does have that certain something which is that it does not...

Just returned from a Spa day here - Spa was excellent - great staff, facilities and service. Delicious cream tea. However, on arrival the Spa itself is not signposted (it is separate to the main hotel). I was told by a chap who I presume worked there that I was obviously looking for the Spa because I didn't have the... More

The hotel is located in Evershot, which is not the easiest place to find without GPS. It's right in the village, an archetypal English country village which has been used for location filming on several occasions. Service was excellent - friendly and obliging. The restaurant was a bit disappointing as far as food was concerned. Breakfast, however, was very good... More

It's rare for me find the time to write a review for anything,however since spending a long weekend at summer lodge I felt compelled to. I cannot recommend summer lodge highly enough ,from being greeted as the car pulled up to our luggage finding its way immediately to our stunning cottage whilst we enjoyed the most fabulous afternoon tea on...

My friend and I were staying locally as two females in our late 20s we enjoy trying new places for afternoon tea. Hotel was beautiful and we were greeted partially friendly. It was a sunny day but we decided to sit inside as the terrace was rather busy, we sat on a corner table which may have been a mistake... More

Just stayed for the first time for two nights at this very well run Relais chateau hotel with my family to attend a wedding in Dorset. The food and service was excellent and the attention to detail in all aspects was first class. Very much looking forward to another visit in the future !

What a wonderful find in Evershot. The Staff could not have been nicer and the Hotel catered beautifully for our 8 year old Grandaugher with small bathrobes, slippers and an child friendly menu. The Gardens and Rooms are lovely and the food was exquisite. Extensive Wine list and lovely Sommelier. Fortunately we are already booked in again in December for... More

Already a fan of all things Red Carnation, I knew a lovely holiday lay ahead for my husband and myself as we made our way to Summer Lodge. Little did I know the extent of the loveliness that lay ahead. For me, it is the combination of people and place that determines a vacation's success. The weather can be dreadful,... More
