We had a nice stay here last weekend. Location is lovelyand walkable to Brockenhurst and drivable to Lyndhurs. But we were on voucher deal which gave half price stay which was good value for money. Not sure I would want to pay full price. The room was small..ok for a couple of nights but would not want to stay longer... More

We stopped at Balmer Lawn for afternoon tea and were pleasantly surprised to find a lovely large lounge that was bright and airy. We had a full afternoon tea with hot chocolates. The afternoon tea had a large variety of sandwiches and cakes with lovely homemade scones and delicious jam. Definitely worth a return visit.

I treated my friend who was having a special birthday to a night away with dinner and a spa treatment. The setting is fabulous in the heart of the New Forest and the hotel has a fascinating history. The staff were extremely friendly and seemed to enjoy their work. The food and drink was of a high standard. A thoroughly... More

Just returned from an overnight stay. The location is excellent, step outside and the new forest and all it offers is just there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Dinner was excellent with the food cooked to perfection. One suggestion is that the bedroom would benefit from a couple of bed lamps.

We had an excellent family party to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary, and what an excellent venue the Balmer Lawn was. The staff went that extra mile to make our stay memorable, and Anna looked after us exceptionally well. The food and service was superb, and all the family would recommend this hotel. Also not outrageously expensive. Well done to... More

Just back from a two night break at this hotel. Booked a travelzoo deal which was incredible value for money. Our dinner in the restaurant was the best meal I think I have eaten in a hotel restaurant - the "sort of" carrot cake must not be missed! We also had a meal on the second evening in the lounge...

Wonderful situation, you can wander from the door straight into the New Forest (though you cannot really see this from lounge and dining room as a fringe of cars is parked between windows and view). The hotel has oddly been partly painted 'fashionable' grey, out of keeping for this period building, the grey theme is continued inside,even our bedroom was... More

Dear Robin Goodfellow Clearly you have an eye for detail, you are right that we have not yet finished painting the outside, but with the dry weather approaching we will manage to get this job finished off very soon. Tastes and fashions change and our next round of room recordation’s will be in a much lighted colour pallet. Thanks for... More

Our room was not available when we arrived as the shower panel was being replaced but all else about this hotel was perfect. The food fantastic. Area great - loads to do though it does help to have a car.

Dear derbyJan_13 Thank you for a lovely review of the hotel and the wonderful setting within the New Forest. Excuse the pun but the Chef's are really "cooking with gas" at the moment and this is reflected in so many excellent reviews.
