“Where do you begin?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

In the last five years we have stayed four times, usually around the Champagne Dinner, each time we have had no real issues or significant complaints.

The food as always is excellent, whether you have sandwiches or Afternoon Tea and the Breakfast - you have to try the scrambled eggs even if your cholesterol is through the roof!!

The staff and their attention to detail is superb, they will go above and beyond to help, they take the time to say hi! Nothing is too much trouble. The only issue I have is with one member of staff, namely Eric, after his whisky/ey recommendations I find I have to buy a bottle afterwards which is costing me a fortune. Joking aside please continue recommending them!!

We also enjoyed a few Spa treatments and felt so relaxed and pampered, it was marvellous! Didn't get to try the pool this year but there is always next year...... back to the daily grip of reality, see everyone next year......

Room Tip: Every room is different, so unless you have a favourite choose a different one!

Charles and his devoted team, again took very good care of us. This time it was a birthday treat for my wife, but as usual the service level received was of a very high standard.
We have stayed mainly in the Coach house as we are allowed to stay there with our dog.

Ahaven of peace and serenity with staff for whom nothing is any trouble. We stayed here because we had enjoyed staying at the Milestone and anticipated a place of similar quality. We were not disappointed. The food was superb and the service was very professional. The rooms were a delight with everything one could need.and attractive decor.
Perhaps the outstanding memory is the kindness and attention shown by the staff--there was even an attendant to welcome us on arrival and prevent me from reversing into the stone wall!!
As our son lives locally we hope to visit here more often.

Room Tip: I'd be happy anywhere!

We took our family of 5 to celebrate our eldest daughter's 21st and were looked after brilliantly. We stayed in the cottage which is a wonderful spot for a family with plenty of space. The quality of the rooms and food was tremendous, but the highlight was the standard of service from all the staff who are attentive and charming and went out of their way to make our stay special. This hotel has a lovely intimate feel.

You may be hard pushed to find a hotel of this quality set in such peaceful and tranquil surroundings.
We have been visiting and indeed from time to time staying at Summer Lodge over a number of years.
We visit for dinner and lunch for special occasions, for very special occasions we extend our stay with a couple of night stays in most wonderful accommodation for total relaxation.

We totally enjoy the ambience the unrivalled comfort at Summer Lodge this coupled with the Spa facilities makes it one of if not the best hotel that we have stayed at. We are now well seasoned travellers and feel that we are in some authority to make these comments. Having traveled the world both East & West also by sea aboard some most wonderful ocean going Liners (one in particular), we rate Summer Lodge as our favourite place ,this is why we keep going back and will continue to do so and hopefully for some time to come.

To all staff at Summer Lodge, we thank you very much for your attention and for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: The Master Bedroom is most outstanding !
