Had a third floor deluxe room which was ok apart from the bathroom which was small and the noise from passing traffic in the distance. The service from the outside bar was very disappointing. We went outside for drinks before dinner. It took 20 minutes for the drinks to appear. The two children ordered Lemonade. Their drinks arrived but no explanation was given as to why they had brought soda water. When questioned they explained that the Lemonade tap wasn't working. Service from the inside restaurant was ok as was the food. There are two pools, one inside & one outside. The bottom of the outside pool was strange as there were steps down in various places which come as a surprise until you get used to them!

Once again a great stay. Super location, lovely room, great food. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, even to accommodating our food allergies to produce us a special pizza without any onions or garlic! Really couldn't ask for more. We have stayed here dozens of times and are never disappointed. We were particularly impressed with all the changes and improvements made during the Covid lockdown. Thanks to all your lovely staff. We will be back soon!

Although this, in our opinion, is 3* we would definitely visit again as I'll explain. We booked one of the 4 balcony rooms and had room 10.loved the view from here across to the forest. This has recently had new carpet, wall paper, painting. Sadly all the furniture is old and tired and very much needs upgrading. Can't understand why this wasn't done at the same time. The balcony and glass screen looked to have not been cleaned in months! Also an empty champagne bottle and ice bucket were not cleaned away when the room was made up. These are such simple things that would have brought this to 4*. THE GOOD THINGS NOW... The staff are amazing. From reception, waiting staff and cleaners. It was a joy to be looked after so nicely by people that made us feel that they really do care for their guests. Also, the food was so lovely. We are big foodies eating in many to restaurants and we just kept asking for the chef to be made aware how good the food was. Sad that the service was painfully slow but the staff and quality made up for this. Covid-19 precautions were excellent and the waring of face shields was great as you could see the staff. This is an n old hotel and it is showing as this was our second visit and the old furniture really should be changed. That said we will definitely return to room 10 as the staff and food could not be faulted.

The website says ‘Our Luxury rooms represent the future of the Balmer Lawn Hotel. We offer four newly refurbished Balcony rooms with 7ft King beds. All of these rooms have a view across the Balmer Lawn to the New Forest.’ The Reality: We booked a two night stay in a Luxury room (21st & 22nd May) costing £240 per night B&B, to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Once in our Luxury room (Room no 14), we went to look at the view across the Balmer Lawn to the New Forest. However, a marquee had been placed in front of the window so that the view was significantly obscured. To get the 7ft King bed into the room one side of it had been pushed to within 15 inches of the wall making it difficult to get in and out. The tea and coffee making facilities were perched on a plank behind the door into the room. In the ‘refurbished’ bathroom one of the two lights over the sink was not working, the basin could not retain water as the ‘click/clack’ plug was broken and one small piece of soap was provided to be shared between two guests. When we retired to our Luxury room, after having a pleasant evening meal in the Beresfords restaurant, we found that it was positioned above the Lounge Bar, so that on both evenings we were subjected to the thump, thump, thump of the music being played in the bar, with this eventually stopping at approximately 10,45pm. We raised these various points with the management via email, but their response concentrated on the problems experienced by the hospitality industry due to the pandemic. They did acknowledge, however, the reduced desirability of the view from the first floor rooms but, as at the 11th June, the website still makes no reference to this. They understood that the evening music was not welcomed by all, but considered a silent hotel to be an oppressive and unwelcome place. So, Luxury room or not, guests whose rooms where set above the lounge bar had to put up with the noise (it is only music when you can hear it properly). I did try to continue the dialogue to deal with the points they had not commented on, but the hotel chose not to. Bearing in mind the price paid, I hope we never experience this level of ‘luxury’ ever again.

Stayed at Balmer Lawn Hotel for 3 nights , very impressed with all the Covid procedures that were in place. Food and staff were excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Hotel well situated for the coast and walking in the New Forest. Definitely recommend to friends and hopefully go again ourselves.
