4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having been driven past this amazing sight of a venue since I was a child, I've always wondered what it was like on the inside. We only made it as far as the restaurant but even that was a great experience. Never before have I felt like I belonged in a place so upmarket - although we did have to... More

The hotel is in the heart of the new forest in an ideal location with a cricket pitch outside the front of the hotel. Walking past the outside at any time you'll see horses and cows roaming freely. The food at the hotel is great and breakfast is lovely. The only downside is the room are a bit of a... More

Lovely family run hotel that strives to pitch above 4 stars. Friendly staff who'll do anything to help, local ale in the bar and above average restaurant food. When they say it's family friendly they really mean it and that includes a cupboard full of board games! We'll be back.

Nice, comfortable, clean room. Good, easy, accessible location. Service and food satisfactory. Bring your dogs, friends and family. The access to the New Forest is the best part. The New Forest trails are incredible.

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!

Dear Suzanne M Wow what a fantastic review thank you. There is probably no better place to be than on the Terrace to the front of the hotel when the sun is shining. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon. More

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

Dear Rachel H This is a great review and you certainly packed a lot into a one night stay. As you say next time 2 to 3 days would be great to explore the area and relax too. The team in Saltus will be delighted that you mentioned them as will the bar and restaurant teams. Thank you for taking... 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
