We stayed at Balmer Lawn last Friday & Saturday as a group for our annual team event. The level of service was absolutely amazing and nothing was too much trouble. We were a large group of over 40 and everyone had a wonderful time and expressed how courteous, polite and helpful the staff were. Our evening meal in our own... More

Most peop[le won't even know that the hotel has a delightful self catering bungalow in the grounds. We booked 2 weeks as we were attending a wedding on the middle weekend and needed a base we could relax within our own space. Lawn Lodge is a fantastic 3 bedroomed bungalow with large garden and private parking. Well equiped with webber... More

Dear Bordersboy Your review of Lawn Lodge our self-catered bungalow is greatly appreciated and I agree that it is probably the best kept secret in Brockenhurst. I think what we offer, as you rightly identify, are all the little touches you would expect from a four star hotel but with all the convenience and independence that self-catering offers. We are...

We are not residents at the hotel, but did call by for afternoon tea on the terrace. We were warmly greeted and there was plenty of space to sit very comfortably. The handmade biscuits were divine. As others have said the location is perfect and could only have been improved if there had been a game of cricket on opposite!... More

Dear Nicki-Diamond Thank you for your very positive review of our afternoon tea and the our wonderful setting. We have only introduced the music onto the terrace this year and clearly we have not yet mastered having a music choice that that does not alienate our clients. We will certainly be looking at this urgently and ensuring that we have... More

We spent four nights at the Balmer Lawn as part of an organised vintage car tour. Arriving late from the ferry we were warmly greeted by the hotel staff and welcome drinks were laid on in a private room as arranged. Indeed throughout our stay the staff were friendly and attentive and minor hiccups (inevitable given a party of 32)... More

Dear Chilledout52 We loved having your group stay at the hotel. With all the vintage cars parked outside it looked most fitting against the historic backdrop of the hotel. Thank you for your positive comments about the hotel our staff and the food and service generally. We very much hope to be able to welcome you back again next year... More

This hotel is set in a beautiful location and the inside of the hotel beautiful. However my husband paid over £200 for a four poster bedroom just for one night and this was not worth the cost! On the way out to view the balcony bare footed I stood on nails from where the carpet doesn't meet the walls/doorways!!! I'm... More

Daer Zsc89 Thank you for taking the time to write your review about your visit to the Balmer Lawn Hotel. I am disappointed that you feel that our accommodation is not appropriately priced. As you stated,the room which you booked was a superior room. Our superior rooms are of a slightly larger size and always with forest view. As you... More

My husband and I looked forward to spending time with family In the New Forest in a 4 star comfortable hotel. Surroundings beautiful, staff very friendly, bedrooms (standard room) average. The mattress was soft and also too large for the base of the bed so the sheets didn't tuck in properly. Television was attached to a Digi Box so not... More

We've stayed at this hotel quite a few times. Hard to fault it - it must have the best position in the whole of the New Forest area. Took afternoon tea on the terrace, which meant Holly, our dalmatian could be there too - it was a lovely treat.

We are very lucky with our lovely central location in the heart of the New Forest and hope to be welcoming you back on many more occasions over the coming years. More

Wow!!!! We had the most wonderful stay at this gorgeous hotel. It is a little gem in the middle of the New Forest. Parts of it have been improved and extended but I am very glad that it has kept its charm and not been made to look modern in any way. As one person commented on here, that parts... More

This was our second stay at the Balmer Lawn. Excellent location. Family rooms and dog friendly! Staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast. We enjoyed afternoon tea on the lovely terrace. Hotel is a little "tired" in places! Indoor pool was clean. My only real criticism was the "roasted tomato parmesan tart" (off the lounge menu)which basically consisted of a... More
