We have just spent 3 nights in this gorgeous hotel tucked away in a beautiful quiet village. The staff are wonderful and could not do more, the room was lovely and the food was superb. Our biggest problem was making a decision as to which glorious sounding dish to have. Nothing we ate disappointed us.
The only slight quibble and it is slight is that the spa was a little disappointing.
The country side around is lovely with good walks. The grounds are beautifully kept, I very much hope I get a chance to revisit in the summer to appreciate the gardens at their best.

And now relax

Stayed here for 2 nights, simply stunning venue, food to die for, and a delightful SPA, which is small, but perfect, the treatments were fantastic, best massage and facial ever!

All Staff couldn't do enough for you, without getting in the way, they seemed so intuitive knew when to step in and when to hold back. Not a single thing to complain about.

Bed like a cloud, quiet rooms, fully equipped.

A hidden Gem in this quiet village setting.

Extremely welcoming and pleasant staff. Exquisite rooms and amazing food.
Staff - just the right amount of attentiveness looking after us with politeness. Nothing is too much trouble.
Incredible wine list and whisky bar.
Spa small but very pleasant and lovely staff. Pool and small gym, treatment rooms. Good massage.
Well looked after grounds - must be good in the summer months.

Romantic stay at summer lodge

We had a lovely stay at Summer Lodge. It felt like a beautiful family home with kind and caring staff. The food was delicious and our room was great with an extremely comfortable bed. We had lovely days going for bike rides, walking and treating ourselves to a massage at the spa.

Relaxing birthday break.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in March. Service is exemplary, food is excellent and the rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. You are made to feel very welcome by all members of staff. Our evening meal accompanied by wine recommended by Ricardo was perfect. I also enjoyed a very effective massage at the Spa. The location in the beautiful village of Evershot and next to a deer park offering idyllic walks is also a bonus.
