We arrived on a Sunday to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were met in the car park by a delightful chap who seemed to pop up everywhere to the point where we wondered if there were twins! Our room was really nice and very spacious, the staff were again absolutely delightful and the bar service and restaurant in the evening... More

This is a very pretty hotel tucked away behind the main street of a very small village. The rooms are very comfortably furnished, and beds and pillows exceptionally good. We had a small suite (the blue one in their photo album (Room 19) which has a small glass annex, and private walled garden. We slept here wonderfully well thanks to... More

This was our second visit to Summer Lodge. It all looked very different in summer, the gardens are lovely – the last time we visited it was all Christmassy. The rooms are lovely, the staff are very friendly, ready to help and very knowledgeable. The food is fine dining and delicious, the wine list extensive. Highly recommend.

A beautiful hotel, lots of old charm. We didn't stay as we don't live too far away. The gardens are a delight. The staff are well trained and helpful. Drinks are a little pricey, however, you are provided with complimentary nibbles. Looking forward to a return visit for dinner.

This is a very good quality hotel, with amenable staff, good rooms and excellent restaurant attached. It is set in a delightful village and the whole place is charming. I don't normally gush about places, but I do think this is good value for the money - and it is not cheap. If you like wine the sommelier is very... More
