As part of my partner's birthday present I signed us up to a mushroom forage for the day organised by the hotel. I also booked a room & dinner in the hotel. We arrived early for the forage dressed in shorts and walking gear I wondered what sort of reception we would receive after reading some other reviews. As it... More

We first discovered Summer Lodge in July 2004, when we were looking for a relaxing country house break where we could take our dogs. We found several hotels listed in the Relais Chateaux guide that said dogs welcome. On further enquiry, large dogs were not welcome and often the dogs were not allowed in the rooms. This was not the... More

We have just had a one night stay at Summer Lodge and had a fabulous time. The massages, spa facilities, taster menu, friendly efficient staff were all first class and faultless. We even managed the full afternoon tea before we left! It's a very special place. We will be returning as soon as possible.

Attended a family lunch, it was brillant as usual. Amazing surroundings and decor. The food was outstanding, the staff very friendly helpful and treated you like royalty. The food was very filling, and the whole restaurant is great value for money...

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
