We loved the decor-no expense spared. We felt very spoilt to be staying there. In the summer it would be even better with the swimming pool and lovely garden. The food was absolutely delicious without being too rich or too much. We took advantage of a special offer .

We have just returned from a one nights stay dinner bed and breakfast. The staff were so warm and welcoming and all seemed to really enjoy working at summer lodge and they couldn't do enough for us. There were four of us and we were all of the same opinion we would return. The dinner was excellent and our breakfasts... More

Having seen the wonderful reviews and noted that this was a Relais & Chateux property, I was a little nervous before our stay as my wife and I were staying with our daughter (nearly 2) and wasn't sure how family friendly Summer Lodge is. I needn't have worried. Although it isn't a 'family hotel', it is very welcoming to families... More

My partner treated us to an overnight stay with dinner and breakfast at Summer Lodge to celebrate our 5th anniversary together. We had stayed at the oyster box in Durban earlier in the year which was superb and this small hotel is part of the same group. The hotel itself is full of character and we stayed in a cottage...

Birthday lunch for 11 on the Monday after Christmas. Severano and the team looked after us very well. A round table and presents for the birthday girl were thrown in free. Three course lunch menu, aperitifs and two bottles of wine for circa £50/head. Slightly higgledy piggledy layout creates charm and choke points. Main drawing room is charming - outside... More

We visited Summer Lodge as group of friend for a Xmas lunch. We had been on a number of occasions previously for afternoon tea.

It's a shame there is the odd review of a bad experience here and I suppose everyone has their off days however, all I can say is that our experience has always been the opposite and we visit 2 to 4 times a year for afternoon tea. Also, I think the overwhelming number of Excellent/good ratings outweighs this especially as... More
