My wife and I took a few days break at Summer Lodge to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We picked Summer Lodge as part of the Red Carnation group due to their pet friendly policy. We have two dogs that we like to take everywhere with us. We were not disappointed. It is a lovely location and the rooms, facilities and... More

This hotel is charming - from the common areas, to the beautiful and extensive gardens, to the rooms. The food is excellent and well presented; there are many different high quality wines by the glass. And the breakfasts are delicious - you must try the Breakfast Split!!

I recently visited the Summer Lodge Spa and have to say I was very disappointed with the experience. The half day spa was a treat for my daughter and myself and though the treatments were enjoyable the rest of the day was I feel rather overpriced. We purchased additional drinks on arrival and on settling in the pool area on... More

Dear charmouthcreamtea, please accept my apologies for your spa visit being spoilt by some other noisy guests. I am also sorry to see that you felt £15 is too expensive for a light lunch and that you would not return to Summer Lodge as a result or recommend us to friends.

Situated deep in the Dorset countryside, the Summer Lodge is an excellent choice for anyone staying in this area. Located in a sleepy village it is easily accessible by car. The grounds are amazing. Koi ponds, manicured lawns, amazing flower beds and the most incredible vegetable garden. Check in was quick and easy and the front desk staff were warm... More

A truly beautiful hotel - lovely rooms, magnificent gardens, a relaxing and calming spa, terrific food and service that should be taught to all other hotel staff. Nothing is too much trouble and there is so much info about the area, its history, what to do etc. Our weather was mixed but the recent hot weather must have made it... More

We stayed at Summer Lodge for 3 days - our party included 2 adults, 2 teenagers and our dog ! Our rooms were lovely and the service & food in the hotel were 5* , the staff were faultless. It was a very relaxing long weekend....we will be back. The Acron pub in the village was also very good.

We stayed here as a birthday treat for my 50th. The hotel sent us a pre arrival questionaire to ask about food allergies, pillow preferences etc. They asked if the stay was celebratory so we were spoiled and treated to a birthday card, a piped message on my dessert plate and a little box of gorgeous handmade chocolates.

We went with friends for a black tie sommeliers dinner. Fun evening with great choice of wines and questions about the different wines. My friend won a nights stay at the hotel.

Stayed here for just one night on a Secret Escapes deal. Our past experience of these offers has sometimes been that we are treated differently from full paying guests.
