My sister treated me to a night's stay and a spa treatment for my 60th. What can I say, it was excellent! She brought a bottle of champagne with her (a bit cheeky I know) which we had a glass of before dinner, when we got back to our room it had been put in a bucket of ice. A... More

I've lost count of the number of our visits over the last few years but one thing is for sure - the standards are as good as ever, if not better. The levels of service are comparable to any hotel anywhere you might care to mention and returning to Summer Lodge feels like returning to your home from home. Brilliantly... More

We had another wonderful pamper day and afternoon tea at Summer Lodge. My friends first visit to the UK from America and she thought it was the best place she had visited ! The Spa and the Hotel is the best around, just walking around the grounds is beautiful . The best surprise was my Gluten Free afternoon tea !... More

The hotel and grounds were lovely. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The room was a lovely size, we had robes, slippers, water, fruit toilettries etc. The hotel is tucked away in a quite sleepy small village. With a post office, church and pub. The food in the hotel was excellent. Have to say we paid via a Groupon... More

Hidden away in the Dorchester country side, this superb hotel is worth the stay. The room decoration, size, quality of the furniture and all various accessories (soap, slippers, towels, etc...) were of high standards. We only stayed one night and fully enjoyed it. The only down side was the breakfast service and cooking, slow and not of high standard. We... More

We booked this hotel through Groupon to celebrate our anniversary. To be honest our experience of hotels using Groupon deals to fill their rooms has not been particularly good, average to say the least. However we stayed for one night and we cannot fault it in any way. The hotel itself is a rambling former country house which has been... More

We had been unaware of this hotel when looking to stay a night or two in Dorset, possibly because it is a relatively small establishment. Small it may be, but it lacks nothing for facilities. Our weather was atrocious for early June which made its swimming pool, comfortably equipped residents’ lounge etc all the more welcome. The (surprisingly numerous) multi-national... More

Summer Lodge is a gorgeous hotel with a lovely garden and spa. Enjoyed a scrumptious afternoon tea. Not cheap but not the sort of place you pop to on a whim. Especially nice for a special occasion. Not very busy. Not sort it I'd stay there at those prices!

We stayed a night at this hotel and enjoyed our visit as much as our previous visit earlier in the year. The Staff look after you so well, and we stayed in room 20 which was ideal for me as I have mobility problems. It was a ground floor room. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent, and the bed was...
