Old world charm with high levels of professionalism and friendliness.

Having known this hotel for over 30 years it was the obvious place to take mother-in-law to celebrate her 80th birthday.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special.
The dinner was perfect with superb service. Everything about our stay was perfect.
So many happy memories of Summer Lodge. Thank you ????

Fantastic time, beautiful hotel with fantastic staff

Our cottage was beautifully decorated and very cosy.
Staff were outstanding, nothing was too much trouble.
Food in both the restaurant and the local pub was perfect.
Will definitely be coming back very soon.

Excellent Dinner Menu

First some negatives we booked a half board stay for 4 nights in a Classic Room, which was comfortable, unfortunately the Bathroom was small and narrow. This we were informed was their biggest Classic Room, with windows overlooking the adjoining building roof and court yard.Not we considered good value for price paid.We were very disappointed with the Spa, it had a nice size swimming pool, a very small sauna which could only seat 4 persons and no steam room. Not a hotel for Spa lovers. On the plus side nice gardens and the dinner and breakfast menus were ideal for 'foodie' lovers.
A special mention has to be for the staff who were very attentive and helpful.
Would we go again? not to stay, only dine there.
