Dorset 5 Star Hotel In UK's Top Ten
8:31am 22nd January 2014
A 5 star Country House and Hotel just outside Dorchester has been named one of the UK's best.
The Summer Lodge, in Evershot, is ranked 8th in Trip Advisor's Small Hotel of the Year category.
Kevin Reid is Director of Sales at Summer Lodge told us the news came as a bit of a surprise, and they only found out they'd made the top 10 yesterday (Tuesday 21st January).
"A nice surprise and while we get good reviews on Trip Advisor so do many of hotels as well, it's a very competitive category. It was a lovely surprise to be honoured with such a high position and it gives us something to aspire to for next year, to see if we can't do better. But we're very, very pleased."
We asked Kevin how they planned to celebrate their award;
"I'm sure we'll crack open a bottle or two this afternoon to thank everyone for their huge effort and hard work that have gone into making this award possible."
