This is the third year in a row that we've had a Daddy/Daughter break at Summer Lodge. They look after me perfectly but always make a special fuss of my daughter. The food is excellent, the wine selection top quality and the service exemplary. And anything that we needed was sorted with the minimum of fuss. The swimming pool is... More

I had seen this country house hotel in various papers over the years but when the Telegraph had a real bargain 2 night offer I couldn't resist it. What a superb hotel in a superb setting. Restaurants and bars were fantastic, great breakfast, lovely grounds and Spa. But the service topped everything, I have never had better or more attentive... More

My husband & I first visited Summer Lodge in 2008 and have been back on a number of occasions. They are owned by Red Carnation Hotels who now have a number of properties but Summer Lodge still maintains a very personal service with great attention to detail. We stayed in room 1 - the Master Suite which was absolutely fabulous.... More

The most fantastic afternoon tea I've ever had ! More posh than posh. Better than Fortnam & Masons, better than Claridges, even. That's the area we're in here. A very rare and special area. Do it - have afternoon tea at Summer Lodge before you die. Actually, have afternoon tea art Summer Lodge and then die happy (hopefully not on... More

Ham and pickle sandwich, cheese and tomato, egg and cress -need I say more so although I don't normally eat burgers I ordered this as I... More

Dear Dorset2013, the prospect of celebrating one's birthday alone by choice, is, admittedly, a miserable one and I am sorry to see we were unsuccessful in alleviating this. Charles Lotter, General Manager More

I took a friend for lunch yesterday and both the food and service were impeccable. Lovely lounges or gardens to enjoy after the meal and there was no pressure to leave. My favourite place to eat in Dorset to date.

We ate in the restaurant 4 nights having both the set menu and the a la carte. The food on both was exceptional.The "shephards pie" was a work of art and... More

Just returned from a one night stay celebrating my wife's birthday and what a fabulous place . We had a Principal Room which was spacious , huge comfortable bed and a nice view overlooking the splendid gardens . The staff were all lovely and friendly . The evening meal and breakfast were excellent . Totally recommended .

After visiting Summer Lodge on several previous occasions, when we decided to eventually get married, there was only one place! From the outset, Laure put us at ease and made us feel very special; her expertise and calmness were invaluable. The wedding was a small gathering of close friends and family and the hotel caters really well for that intimate... More
