Positive Reviews

Great location for a getaway

Located in the heart of the New Forest National Park, this hotel is ideal for nature lovers or anyone in need of a quiet holiday Great views available from many of the rooms add to the hotel’s charm and it is recommended as a venue for weddings or couples celebrating a romantic anniversary.

Many amenities make for a relaxing stay

Balmer Lawn might feel a little isolated so far from Brockenhurst, but it makes up for the isolation with plenty of amenities Between the heated pools, spa area with numerous treatments, and exceptional food at the hotel’s restaurant, many people won’t see any need to leave the hotel during their stay.

Overall nice atmosphere

Surrounded by idyllic grounds with warm and inviting rooms, it isn't hard for many guests to feel embraced by the hotel’s cosy atmosphere.

Negative Reviews

Staff can be ‘dysfunctional’ at times

One complaint some guests have is a lack of professionalism with the staff While not rude, the lack of attentiveness by employees reflects on the need for stricter training This is especially true of the hotel’s restaurant, where a shortage of staff can create impersonal service.

Some maintenance could help improve impressions

While the hotel is generally in good condition, regular maintenance on the hotel’s advertised amenities could help guests feel like the hotel’s praise is warranted.

Good hotel, but not great

As Balmer Lawn is listed as a four star hotel, guests might expect an exceptional accommodation While the character of the property and numerous amenities make this a better than average hotel, many don’t feel the high cost of a room is justifiable.
