This was our second visit and it's always a little nerve wracking when you return somewhere. No need to worry it was just as good, check in was a little rushed I was expecting to be offered a drink as normal for a five star but this did not happen. That said the gentleman who brought our luggage brought it...

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!

My Wife and me are both avid fans of the Red Carnation Hotel Group, having visited The Milestone in Kensington on two separate occasions this was our favourite hotel, until we spent the last three nights at Summer Lodge which has been just so memorable! Whilst these two Hotels are in completely different locations and offer residents different experiences, we...

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Summer Lodge. The location is beautiful, the grounds are stunning and our room (15) was very comfortable. The main reason for selecting the hotel was on the basis of having stayed several times at Hotel 41 (another 5 star Red Carnation Hotel in London) and experienced a superb level of service...

We have just spent 4 days at this wonderful hotel. We stayed in room 27 which is a cottage on the perimeter. We took out two dogs who were wonderfully looked after we had beds provided for them, dog bowls and homemade treats. The hotel is beautiful and has a private spa attached which residents can use. We did not...

So impressed with this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food and wine superb. From the moment you walk in you are made welcome. Ambience is very good and most impressive to me was the sommalier. He talked knowledgeably about the wine list, tasted himself before letting us taste. The red wine was decanted and the corks rested on...
