We've just returned from a lovely Christmas break at Balmer Lawn. All the staff were very happy and attentive and worked well together as a team. Our room had views over the cricket pitch and beyond and it was fascinating to watch the ponies just wandering around the fields and along the pavements in the pretty village which was within...

The most outstanding thing about xmas lunch at the balmer lawn is the amazing service - we could have been royalty! We were a party of 48 - not an easy amount to cater for, and the food was perfection - well almost - those who had the salmon or the pork belly loved it, but said it would have... More

I took my mum here for the night on a dinner,b&b and spa deal with Travelzoo and we were both delighted with our stay. All the staff we encountered were friendly and smiling. The pool, jacuzzi and sauna were modern and well fitted and we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves before dinner. Hotel food can often be... More

Well what an excellent Christmas lunch we had yesterday. We were a party of fifty, were greeted on arrival and shown the way to our private room, coats taken and hung away and handed a Buck's Fizz. We entered our room, which was superbly decorated, found our individual place setting (which included our choice of menu) and chose our table.... More

Dear Cveve It is very much regretted that you have posted your review so quickly. We do acknowledge that we did clear the room that wedding reception was held in too quickly and we apologised for this at the time and again now. However, it is very frustrating that you have failed to acknowledge that as soon as you pointed... More
