We have just returned from a family weekend that the Balmer Lawn. We had a great time despite the good old British weather! Using their on-line booking facility, we opted for Room 54 at £239 this was a lovely side facing room overlooking the forest and with a sofa bed, ideal for our younger children. The In-Laws decided to “splash... More

stay here regularly with work and its a great place to stay in a stunning part of the world. its got all the amenities of a large hotel but is in no way corporate or feel part of a chain. food is always good and the leisure facilities great.

My husband and I married elsewhere in the New Forest on the Friday and last minute on Saturday decided to have a couple of days away with our 8 year old son.

This is a lovely country house hotel with a great range of rooms to choose from and a plethora of activities for the family, with two swimming pools, squash and tennis courts you don’t have to leave the hotel. It is right on the edge on the New Forest so easy to access on foot or bikes. The kids love... More

Myself and a friend stayed at Balmer Lawn in Aug-14, the hotel is advertised as a 4star, I would say parts of the hotel you would rate as 4 star but some parts only 3 star. We stayed in a Superior twin room and I struggled to see what made it SUPERIOR, it was an average twin room, there were... More

Although not far off a main road it is in a reasonably quiet area deep in the New Forest. The hotel is currently undergoing some refurbishment, but this did not impede in our stay in any way. The reception area is looking a bit dated, but the reception staff were excellent, efficient and very courteous. Some of the carpeting around... More

Whoever owns this hotel is lucky. Lucky because it is a four starred AA hotel which would normally imply a certain standard and level of luxury. I do not know when these stars were awarded or indeed how often they are updated or reviewed. Maybe criteria differs in different parts of the country. It certainly differs in different countries.
