We attended a wedding party which was lovely however the hotel was average. Poor outside seating with no patio heaters and no room to sit inside. The toilets were not refreshed throughout the day even though I pointed this out to reception! The hotel is in a beautiful location and the walking maps provided are great walking in the forest...

Just had a short stay with the family at the Balmer Lawn. Arrived to find a BBQ lunch being served outside with some live jazz. Very nice lunch and the sun was shining. Our room was 56 and was just right for us as a family of 4, if a little pricey for one night. Beds were comfy - had... More

Dear Liz J. Thank you very much for your very positive review of the Hotel. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly hotel and as you rightly identify with both indoor and outdoor pools there is a lot to do with the children and that is before exploring the New Forest on foot or bikes. Our location is ideal... More

We had a fantastic nights sleep. The superior room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was beautifully cooked. We also enjoyed a couple of swims in the heated pool and a game of tennis. This is a grand hotel but not too stuffy. The staff were personable and helpful. Loved it!

Having just returned from this fantastic hotel I feel compelled to write with my experience. There were five of us in total and we didn’t fancy sharing rooms so opted to book the basic “budget rooms”, yes in most cases they are quite small and not to the same standards are the other rooms but at £99 as they say...

Fantastic value for £9.95. You are served with prawns on a skewer, a sausage, chicken leg and burger. You then help yourself to burger bun, long roll for sausage along with a varied choice of salad.Nice ambience sitting outside on the terrace area with the jazz providing music.Staff were very helpful and always nearby should you require anything. Good choice... More

Thank you for choosing the hotel to celebrate your anniversary and for your positive comments about the Saltus Spa and the Reception area of the hotel. You are right that we do not currently provide “in-room” safes and this is something that we review from time to time. From speaking to fellow hoteliers they often comment that they cause a... More

So here we have a four star hotel because it apparently meets the criteria, how I do not know three would be generous. The room (room 3) was adequate but for a supposedly "superior" room gave little evidence of being such. As had been noted in another review the chair accompanying the desk was too wide and thus encroached on... More

Thank you for your review of the hotel. Clearly your view on the rating of the hotel is subjective and you are entitled to express your opinion. However, we obtained our four star rating in 2008 following considerable investment and upgrading to the bedroom stock. Since then we have passed our annual rating inspection every year with flying colours and... More

We have just returned from a family weekend that the Balmer Lawn. We had a great time despite the good old British weather! Using their on-line booking facility, we opted for Room 54 at £239 this was a lovely side facing room overlooking the forest and with a sofa bed, ideal for our younger children.
