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. Summer Lodge is "absolutely fabulous" and during the two days I feasted my eyes on all the beautiful décor, antiques and ornaments and then I missed so many.... More

My wife and I have stayed in many nice hotels, we have been fortunate to be able to do this from time to time, and they have all been very good. Summer Lodge is different, it has something special, tranquility. With extremely attentive staff, everyone on the team at Summer Lodge is professional, attentive, and personable. I would like to...

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. The only tiny improvement would be a more visible road... More

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.

Stayed recently for a nice night away with the other half. From start to finish was very impressive. Room service was great, we enjoyed a top notch 'surprise taster' menu with wines to match in the restaurant and the morning after's breakfast followed by a lazy afternoon in the spa was spot on. A great find and we'll most definitely... More

Stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed for longer. It's the staff that really made our stay so good. Their attention to detail is second to none. Our room was well decorated and luxurious but not pretentious at all. Dinner was amazing and well served by the amazing staff. Only gripe was very poor WIFI connection throughout... More

As always the quality of accommodation, food and attentive service were faultless. In addition to this, Charles and his team went out of their way to ensure that our 10th Wedding Anniversary celebrations and vow renewals were an extra special and memorable day for us! Many thanks to all at Summer Lodge.
