HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 March 2017

We found the comfort, service, facilities, food and wine list at Summer Lodge all excellent. They exceeded our expectations. Add in its very good swimming pool/spa complex offering relaxing massages/pampering plus free entries to a number of local attractions and you have a really good choice for a short break. We'll be back!

I have just returned from a three night stay in Summer Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We were greeted on arrival by Jennifer at reception who brought us to our adorable cottage. The cottage was spacious with everything you might need for a weekend stay. Jennifer helped us with guides and walking routes for the weekend. I enjoyed a...

My husband booked this hotel for a surprise anniversary trip earlier this month. Our one night stay couldn't have been better. The room was perfect, with a bathroom almost a big as the bedroom, and another separate shower room. The decor is sympathetic to the period of the property and the bed super comfortable. We indulged in the tasting menu...

I cannot praise highly enough the friendly efficiency of the staff at this hotel. It is with genuine sadness we learnt of the death of the previous manager, Charles Lotter, who made us so welcome last summer. The grounds are a riot of colour, and a pleasure to explore time and time again. I am currently immobile and had to...

We had a lovely relaxing 48 hours at the Summer Lodge Hotel. The staff were impeccable, very charming and polite, and showed amazing attention to detail. The hotel is very 'traditional' in its style which might not be everyone's cup of tea. Our room the cottage was very clean and comfortable, with a huge bed, big bathroom, lovely toiletries and...

This is our first time at Summer Lodge. First impressions promised much with the grounds being simply stunning. The same could not be said of our room which badly needs bringing into the 21st century. Whilst all was well maintained, the furniture is very dated and not in a good way. Not helped by a rattling communicating door which allowed...
