Myself and my new Fiancé (yay!) recently stayed at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. Upon arrival we were told by a very friendly and professional member of staff that we have received a complimentary upgrade. The room was lovely, newly refurbished with a great view looking out towards the cricket pitch at the front of the hotel. We then later went... More

The Balmer Lawn Hotel has been undergoing extensive improvements. The exterior is now a very smart grey, the terrace at the front is stunning on a summer's evening, catching the last of the sun across the cricket pitch. Function rooms are newly decorated and very smart and the food is delicious!

We stayed at the Balmer Lawn Hotel on a Sunday evening with their 'spring break offer' of £115 per person and had the most special time! The hotel itself is gorgeous, it could do with a lick of paint in places, in other places it's perfect though. Lovely and clean. We used the spa and leisure facilities. Pool, gym, sauna... More

I booked a special offer to come with my wife to the Balmer Lawn, mainly because I had my industrial placement at the hotel 30 years ago. Even though we were on an Amazon offer, when the staff heard about my past association, were were upgraded to a front facing room. Throughout our one night stay, the service, food and... More

Being on the forest and having the chance to see a game of cricket on the lawn to the front makes this a very special hotel and a treat to visit. Living in Germany means that it is not often that I am able to visit the hotel; it is just over a year since the last visited and what... More

I booked a two night break to celebrate my husband's birthday through Amazon Local at the end of April at the Balmer Lawn hotel. It is in a beautiful location in the heart of the New Forest just a short walk from Brockenhurst, the station and local pubs. Lots of lovely walks close by in the stunning New Foresdt. All... More

After many times driving by saying 'that looks like such a lovely hotel' we finally got the opportunity to stay for our wedding anniversary. The hotel exceeded our expectations; lovely friendly 'on the ball' staff, gorgeous food and a beautiful pool. The building and grounds were clean and well maintained. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to others.

We stayed on an amazon deal last month and can only recommend the Balmer Lawn. We had a brilliant time, the restaurant was fairly quiet but service was just enjoyable and relaxed, so was the food. The manager on shift (South African?) was extremely pleasant and looked after us very well. Reception was really friendly and they could have not... More
