This is my second visit to this gorgeous hotel. I was part of a large birthday group and we were very well looked after from start to finish. The rooms are lovely with amazing views of the gardens. The staff are fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and there were a lot of us to please, so 10/10!!! My only...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

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!

Fabulous food, a friendly welcome and excellent service, nothing is too much trouble. A lovely old building, however some of the rooms have stairs to access, so travellers with limited mobility need to make this clear on booking to ensure they are allocated a suitable room, but the hotel is beautifully quirky.

This is the first TripAdvisor review I have written, but felt compelled to do so after experiencing the wonderful hospitality of Summer Lodge. I was celebrating a milestone Birthday and wanted to celebrate in style, which I certainly did at Summer Lodge. Our visit started off with being met by Pietr at the entrance, welcoming us and directing us to...

The Summer Lodge in Evershot is one of those places you go to for a getaway from it all experience. The rooms are well appointed with nicely sized bathrooms and there is a gaslight fireplace in the room. Note that the room we were given was with a full sized bed (not a queen or a king). The bar area...

Our second visit since a one night stay 10 years ago to this very individual hotel in west Dorset. You could say we needed that time to save up to spend 3 nights there!The service of the staff is second to none with a very high ratio of staff/guest.

Another wonderful stay at Summer Lodge where everything is catered for. The new managers are running a great team of enthusiastic staff who make every effort to look after you. The spa experience (including massage) is superb. Excellent food, wine and a relaxed atmosphere make it a joy to experience.

This is the second time I have stayed here and it keeps on getting better. Quintessentially English, incredible history attached to it... love the Thomas Hardy link. Rooms are comfortable with such beautiful linen... food is sublime. Pop across to the Acorn Inn for a more casual meal, but incredible pub grub

My husband had organised a surprise early Valentine's dinner for us both. Dinner was well worth the drive from Bournemouth (at the other end of Dorset). This was our second visit to Summer Lodge and my only regret is that we didn't spend the night here as we both had to work the next day. It was lovely to meet...
