Perfect venue for a wedding. Good service from the staff throughout although when I tried to take photos before the service started it appeared to be frowned upon by the wedding planner! Lovely location in the new forest which always helps for wedding photos. We had a family room which was very spacious but also very hot. Outside pool looked... More

Great entrance and service very amicable. The staircase that leads to the differents floors is impressive. The room didn't meet the one offered by 'Secret Scapes' website but they acknowledged that and provided with a bottle of champagne for the inconvenience. The spa facilities were dissapointing as there was a medium size swimming pool, sauna and limited space to lay... More

We stayed at the Balmer Lawn for my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary for 2 nights. I was immensely impressed by the service we received from start to finish. The cuisine was first class, the public areas were clean and very relaxing. The only tiny downside was the slightly tired state of the en suite bathroom.

We loved the atmosphere and excellent personnel at the Balmer Lawn hotel. Absolutely Agatha Christie: Isolated location set in the English forest, splendid lounging areas, perfect for taking 'tea' both inside and out, a great location for mysterious hints to be made, this old grand building comes complete with creaking floorboards! Balmer Lawn wants to be 5 star, but despite... More

My boyfriend and I came for an anniversary lunch with our daughter and were a little dismayed to find only one other table of diners! The atmosphere was a little bit low energy - but it picked up a bit when the spa goers & afternoon tea takers joined the dining room. The food was delicious, especially the home baked... More

I visited with family for afternoon tea which I must say was fantastic. The scones are baked to perfection, the cream was perfect and the jam delicious. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed a lovely walk in the field outside. The dinner menu looked great and I'll certainly be coming back. The hotel looked very inviting but I didn't... More

A lovely setting to enjoy a family celebration. A private room was provided, which was perfect. We would recommend a visit and the surrounding area is beautiful. The afternoon tea was of a very good standard and one was more than enough to share between two people. The children were welcomed and there is a menu for them. We did... More

Ideally situated as a base to explore the New Forest. You could just walk out the door straight into it. We had a two night break and brought our dog to a hotel for the first time. The staff were very accommodating and made bringing the dog very easy. She came to breakfast served for us in the lounge but... More
