This is a beautiful clean hotel with a really first class restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and all the staff were charming, polite and very efficient. The food was delicious! From the moment we entered we felt looked after and special without the service being intrusive. The staff we talked to were knowledgeable about the food and wine,...

Just spent two nights here with friends. The rooms are very comfortable and the food was excellent. The staff were fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Plenty of car parking spaces and the hotel has a spa and an outside swimming pool. We will definitely be back.

Our room was at the front overlooking cricket pitch. The horses, cows and Shetland ponies grazed on this field at the front on the way through the forest....

Hotel rooms very comfortable. Dining room not very appealing with dark grey walls.Ideal family hotel . Parking difficult, spaces should be on slant making it easier to reverse out and need to be concrete. No joke stepping out into large puddles when it rains! Evening meal not that marvellous having waited 90 minutes for main course. Don't ask for porridge...

We went back to the Balmer Lawn, Brockenhurst, 10 years after we got married there and had the most fantastic meal. Fish and steaks were served perfectly and the service was excellent. Would recommend highly😄👍

We have been visiting the New Forest for 10 years now and thought we would give the Balmer Lawn Hotel a try as it is a child friendly spa hotel (by that I mean our daughter could use the indoor and outdoor pools). We stayed in a family room, below are the 'Good and Not so Good/could be improved upon'...

An impressive building in an absolute nice surrounding. The hotel has a kind of luxury country style feeling over it. Nice staff, great breakfast. The luxury style doesn't really continue into the rooms: They are ok, a but dated. Bathroom is simple.

I decided to book this hotel as I had heard great things from friends and family. The grounds that the hotel is set on are lovely. Lots of surrounding fields to wander and explore.

I was unfortunate enough to stay in this fantastic hotel with a mate rather than my Wife. We were in attendance at a friends wedding and staff were beyond friendly and professional. Fantastic and beautiful!!
