We've had the pleasure of visiting a number of places in the Relais and Chateau group, and love the attention to detail and High-end quality many of them offer so we decided Summer Lodge might be a good bet. In comparison with other hotels in the group however, this one fell a little short in terms of room quality unfortunately.... More

Dear LatinAmericaLover, thank you for your review of Summer Lodge. I will make very good use of your feedback. For example, I will speak to Ellen about fussing less at breakfast and not being too loud. I have to tell you though, that in ten years, this is the very first time I have received even the slightest negative comment... More

We were blessed with hot sunny weather when we visited in the Summer and could enjoy the lovely garden fully and even eat breakfast outside, such a treat. Our room was very comfortable and the hotel well maintained. Dinner was disappointing, too contrived for me. Apart from that a super holiday and Simon Gudgeon's work is amazing - do visit... More

Dear LeicesterJuliet, thank you for your review of Summer Lodge. I am sorry to see you found dinner 'contrived'. Often, we hear the opposite; so many guests tell us that although the food, service and surroundings are very fine, the atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are very attentive without being intrusive. I am delighted to see how much you... More

We took our Mother-in-Law to lunch for her Birthday and had a fantastic time. You couldn't ask anymore from the staff, they were professional, impeccable and extremely attentive. They made her feel very special and were quite charming! The food was absolutely delicious. Looking forward to going back soon! Thank you.

Have just returned from my husband's mystery birthday treat for my 80th - and he had pulled out all the stops but unfortunately there is no way of deleting the "80" bit.

We booked this hotel at the very last minute, literally driving down the A35, after a stressful few days. It was such a good decision. It was a wonderful overnight stay, fantastic room, really great dinner and breakfast. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Every detail was just so. Well done.

Rarely you get a hotel that at the same time offers a fantastic gastronomic experience, in a very picturesque setting and with a great Spa. But Summer Lodge ticked all boxes. Staff were very friendly, services was excellent and i would certainly recommend at off season (we visited in a sunny november). We will be coming here again.
