We travelled as a family of four, and cannot fault your service at all. The adjoining rooms (32 and 33), were very clean and spacious, and all meals, both breakfast and dinner were lovely. The only suggestion I could make, and this isn't criticism, just feedback is about the outdoor pool. We enjoyed using it, but the depth of the... More

Booked a saturday night to celebrate our wedding anniversay. Had dinner in the restaurant, both the food and service was excellent. Room on the 3rd floor overlooked the forest and was very comfortable although a little dated in the decor. All the staff were very helpful and considerate. Only negative was the car park in which it was difficult to... More

I stayed at the Balmer Lawn for 3 nights and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I got married off site on the Saturday but they treated myself and my guests as if we had got married there and I would thoroughly recommend them. The restaurant food was beautiful and myself and my now husband would highly recommend the... More

Took my daughter and grandchildren here for a weekend treat. It is a very friendly hotel, nothing too much trouble. Staff were lovely and very helpful. Rooms very comfortable. Food was good, lots of choice, the breakfast spread was wonderful. Both pools were very clean. It will certainly be on my list for another visit. Direct access to the forest... More

A friend and I had booked a spa day to celebrate her birthday. I had purchased vouchers for our trip. We had a very warm welcome from the 2 people on reception which immediately made us feel valued and relaxed. The manager of the spa visited us at reception and showed us around the lovely facilities and again made us... More

We recently booked the Sunday offer which is such great value in lovely surroundings, in particular being able to lie by the pool until late evening was heavenly. We had a lovely room, a beautiful meal and the staff were extremely attentive. Keep up the good work, we will be back very soon!!

The Balmer Lawn has the perfect balance of luxury and friendliness. The staff are excellent and unusually for a hotel of its size and quality the owners, Alison and Chris, are on site and will frequently engage with their guests to obtain opinions. The meals are top quality and cooked to order and it would be wrong not to mention... More

My wife booked a 3 day mid-week break for us to celebrate my landmark birthday. What an excellent choice! The room, a four poster suite, was excellent. Plenty of space, very clean, comfortable furniture, lovely bathroom and wonderful view of the forest. The hotel setting is excellent - 1 minute walk to the river and direct access to long walks...
