Just spent a fab weekend at Balmer Lawn. Beautiful location with lots of places to go for days out. We took our cycles & had a lovely ride between Bucklers Hard & Beaulieu. The Balmer Lawn hotel was lovely & the staff are superb. The highlight was totally Beresfords restaurant, every meal was exceptional & we ate like Kings all... More

We chose to stay at Lawn Lodge (which is part of the Balmer Lawn Hotel) as self catering suited our family situation on this occasion. The bungalow attached to the hotel is extremely comfortable in an open plan style and is well equipped. A short walk through the garden gate and across the lawn to the main hotel meant that... More

Dear Anne H What a great review for Lawn Lodge, there can't be many self-catering cottages that can boast of having all the facilities of a 4 Star hotel on the doorstep. Thank you for pointing this out and delighted to hear that you enjoyed all the Lawn Lodge has to offer. More

We booked a Spa day, and we couldn't praise the staff enough, we were made to feel very welcome, shown round and informed of the facilities very well. It was one of the most relaxing comfortable spa days I have ever had, the light lunch was high quality and a varied choice. Thank you so much to the lovely ladies... More

We were 4 ladies of a certain age (!) visiting on an Amazon Local Deal in April 2015. The deal was so good that I suppose our expectations were not high. How pleasantly surprised we were. The hotel is lovely and our rooms were extremely good, obviously recently refurbished. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom well appointed and the water... More

Having read some mixed reviews of their Sunday lunch we thought we take a punt and book for Mother’s day. When booking we were told we could either have a table at 12.30 or 2.30 so having taken the earlier slot we were expecting a busy dining experience. Certainly when we arrived there were plenty of staff around. We received... More

Dear cltboy Thank you for your review of our Mother’s Day Sunday Lunch. I am at a loss to explain where everyone was when you arrived as we were busy that day and served over 70+ covers that day for Sunday Lunch. We served a private party of 30 in our Hamble Room and 40 for afternoon teas in our... More

Great position,but hotel stay ruined by the noisy bridal party in the rooms on the same corridor. The hotel should have warned us at booking that the hotel would be full of wedding revellers ....on both nights Food was mediocre. Plus points..staff v friendly and helpful. Nice swimming pool and good bike hire...

Dear PharmKaty Thank you for your review and you can only report as you find. It is shame to be marked down because of the lively behaviour of other guests, but appreciate your comments on the friendliness of the staff etc. Hopefully if you return it will be a more tranquil stay as it should have been this time around.

We booked several rooms for family and friends attending my daughters wedding, at a different location. And although we didn't hold the wedding there, the manager, Shaun, and all the staff could not have made us more welcome or comfortable. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble (especially for me, the very worried and nervous, brides mother) The accommodation was... More
