5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The setting, attentive staff and fantastic room made this one of the most memorable weekends of our lives. Our room had the wow factor, with the four poster bed, wonderful views and the lovely touch of a bottle of champagne ( ordered by my hubbie) started the weekend off so well. We enjoyed a walk to the local village of... More

My wife and I needed a night away to recharge the batteries and this hotel was totally amazing! The staff were welcoming and very attentive; smiling and always happy to help. Whilst we did book one of the more expensive rooms, we were not disappointed at all. The bed was huge and very, very comfortable. The meals in the restaurant... More

My recently celebrated my wife's 50th birthday dinner at Balmer Lawn including a one night stay. We were well looked after and the organisation was excellent from start to finish. With a bigger party we know the level of service can be hit and miss, but this was not the case - the service and quality of meal was superb... More

My wife and I booked to stay at Balmer Lawn on Monday 10th July along with our Golden Doodle. On arrival I was both surprised and delighted to be assigned a beautiful room with views over the adjoining countryside. My previous experience of Hotel accommodation when accompanied by my dog has not been favourable so this was a great start.... More

We choose the Balmer Lawn Hotel for its facilities, location and price range for a 2 night stay for a friend's 50th birthday celebration. Four of us stayed at the hotel in rooms 47 & 48 which were interconnecting so we could all be together as so to speak. Too more of our party joined us the next day, but... More

Great location. Great food. Great service. Staff so helpful. Location in N F is easy to get to. Then watched cricket. Bliss . Open to non residents. We had a family tea for 30. Worth every penny and highly recommended

I've known of this hotel for years and last stayed thirty years ago. The room we had looked as though it had hardly been touched since (although the bathroom had indeed been updated). Small, with a very basic wardrobe and distressed desk with just a couple of drawers, it is not even up to Travelodge standard. There is just one... More

I went to school at Brockenhurst and used to cycle past twice each day but never crossed the threshold so when staying at Beaulieu this July I decided we would book for dinner. The reservation was professionally handled and we arrived at the booked date and time. Drinks were promptly served in a busy reception/lounge area and our order taken... More
