We saw Balmer Lawn Hotel as we were driving past one day during our holiday, and decided to have a look. With a cricket pitch situated right outside it was a lovely scene to see on a Sunday Afternoon. We then decided to book for the following Friday (11th July). We booked the Fab Friday Deal which was Β£79.50/person; this... More

We dropped in here for an evening drink and sat outside on the terrace. The setting is lovely with little noise from the road. The spa although we didn't use it looked lovely and we both said we would return for a weekend stay at this hotel.

The impressive 19th century Balmer Lawn is located in the beautiful New Forest area north of Brockenhurst on the A337 between Cadnam and Lymington. The hotel was originally a private hunting lodge and many refurbishments over the years now provide visitors with elegant and modern luxury throughout including the restaurants which offer impressive traditional English menu. Unsurprisingly, there have been... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review about staying at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. I am really disappointed that you had not such a good night sleep as hoped for.

My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Balmer Lawn.

We where also invited to sit outside after the meal to enjoy some live music.

Just returned from a lovely stay at the Balmer Lawn. Booked a mid week two night stay whilst visiting family in the new Forest. Not sure if it's changed ownership but there seems to have been a lot of changes since our last stay (that was 4 years ago!). A new spa facility looked lovely but didn't get chance to... More

We stayed on Saturday night in room 56 with our two young children this room is ideal as it has two large double beds and a sofa bed.
