We went here for the family fun day that was open to non-residents. It was very impressive and there were lots of things to do. Having a quick look around the facilities as well made me want to come back here and stay a bit longer. It was also impressive to see what they'd done with some of the history... More

Excellent hotel and perfect location, delightful staff especially the head of house keeping Anita Elsom. Only tiny negatives - nothing that took our fancy in restaurant which was a shame but lots of other places to eat nearby and although lovely for the dogs quite pricey to say the least £20 each per night and no dog biscuits !!

Dear Salyork Thank you for your lovely review, Anita will be over the moon with the personal mention. I am so sorry that your lovely four legged friends did not get their dog biscuits. I will certainly look into this as we has a very wide variety on offer. I hope we can welcome you back again very soon. More

We stayed at the Balmer Lawn Hotel for one night whilst visiting Brockenhurst. Having booked at the last minute we were pleasantly surprised to be given a room overlooking the Forest and adjacent cricket ground. We ate in the restaurant which whilst fairly quiet on a Wednesday night had a good atmosphere and lovely food. The following morning at breakfast... More

After searching high and low for a 4* hotel to take my dog away for the first time I stumbled across Balmer Lawn. Initially I did not have high expectations as I am always wary of hotels that allow dogs however Balmer Lawn exceeded all expectations! I booked Balmer Lawn for 2 nights for 16th/17th/18th August. The room was very... More

The room was very nice but the service was excellent & being a "dog friendly" hotel certainly made our stay extremely enjoyable. The food in the restaurant was slightly limited but was very well cooked and presented.
