We have just come back from a weekend away staying at your hotel. We had a lovely time. We also attended a function held at the Balmer Lawn which was very well organised. If we are coming back to The New Forest we will definitely bear in mind staying at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. The restaurant food was lovely. Had room service which was lovely.

Staff were friendly and welcoming. Beautiful setting, and a great atmosphere. Sandwiches, scones and cakes were all fresh and delicious. Too much to eat, and I was pleased when a box was offered without us even asking so we could take the leftovers home. There were two minor niggles though. On booking online I had stated that one person was vegetarian. This was not reflected in the sandwiches, which were the same for all of us. Not a problem as we were happy to swap around and I think changes would have been made if we asked. However, it does imply a lack of care in checking bookings. Secondly the gratuity was added to the bill automatically. I would have left a tip as the service was good, and the amount added was fair so I am not complaining about paying it. However, if it is a gratuity it should be up to me to decide - I should not feel forced into paying it. Neither of these niggles would stop me returning though - we definitely intend to to visit again.

Dear CarolS98 Thank you very much for your review and that despite the niggles you mention you still gave us the highest rating which is greatly appreciated. As you can tell we read and act on all client reviews and will certainly look into why the vegetarian option was not picked up by the on-line booking system. Regarding service charge this is always a tricky subject but please be assured that the business does not take any of gratuity, it is shared on a totally transparent basis to all staff including the kitchen team and all staff in fact. The gratuity suggested is always discretionary and it is totally your choice to pay it or not or indeed any another amount which could be more or less than shown.

We stayed for 3 nights in this lovely hotel. From arrival to departure the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with the added advantage of looking out over the cricket ground, where horses, cattle and pigs roamed! Breakfasts provided a marvellous selection of self-service food to suit all tastes, and afternoon teas and evening meals were thoroughly enjoyable in a comfortable and homely atmosphere. The hotel was very conveniently located to visit all parts of the New Forest. This was our first visit, but will not be our last.

We have stayed here quite a few times now and always have an amazing time. The staff are friendly, always make a fuss of our dog and nothing is too much trouble. As we have a dog we have to eat in the lounge, which is fine for us, the food is really good, we ate from the Beresford Restaurant menu, good choice of food. Nothing bad to say!

Eaten here for lunch and in the early evenings a few times but chose to stay, the hotel is nice, lots of character and nice large rooms, but service / attitude especially at breakfast was atrocious and soured the whole stay. This is not a cheap hotel and it should be service with a smile not a scowl.

Dear JLM3080 It is a great shame that your experience was spoiled in this way. I have to say that you experience is not typical but that is not to suggest that we got it wrong for you. Given that you enjoyed the facilities on offer we hope that you will be able to give us a second chance.
