The food and service was top class, however the rooms are dated, eg patterned carpet, upholstered walls. One wonders whether the owners ever go to the more fashionable and popular hotels like The Pig where the decor is more streamlined, wooden floors, better lighting etc. Also to be shown to a bedroom with an electric air freshener was awful, what you'd expect from a cheap b & b! The manager took up our comments to be fair and hopefully the dreadful plastic box balls in the windowboxes will soon be gone!

We booked this hotel as we wanted to go to the Langham Estate Vineyard and this was nicest and nearest hotel the Hotel was superb albeit a little dated in some areas the grounds and surrounding area was just stunning - we stayed for 2 nights and had Dinner in the restaurant on the second night as again was excellent the service throughout the weekend was excellent and attentive. We also went to the SPA which you have to book due to Covid restrictions and my wife had a Message and said it was great all in all a lovely weekend certainly helped by the weather but would definitely recommend for a break

It was wonderful to be able to stay away again after lockdown and there is nowhere better than Summer Lodge to be pampered and spoilt. It's customer service perfection. Thanks very much, Alex and Jack, for running such a great establishment. It's a pity you aren't able to sprinkle the same magic over the weather!

Friends were staying at Summer Lodge and asked us to join them for dinner. Great atmosphere, interesting food, and service was absolutely first class. We live locally - it is really good to have such a lovely hotel in the area. Alex and Jack, who run it, go out of their way to give you a great experience.
