We spent two nights at The Summer Isles in late July. You do wonder if you will ever reach the place it is so far off the beaten track down a road which eventually sort of peters out but the effort is really worth it. Run by a South African and his family who are supported by an excellent young team the whole place sparkles and operates extremely efficiently. Without asking we were allocated an upgraded room with tremendous sea views, which was very comfortable and had a great bathroom.We had dinner both nights in the restaurant and a lunch in the bar and all the meals were very imaginative and of an extremely high standard. Service was attentive and friendly. When we commented on the decor in the dining room the young waiter proudly announced that during the winter, when they are closed, he had painted it. This hotel is a wonderful example of working very hard during a short season to make your guests feel really comfortable and satisfied and pleased to spread the word about the their visits. I can't imagine they get much passing trade!
