Thank you all of the staff at Balmer Lawn for making my dads 90th Birthday surprise so wonderful. You can rely on the staff to ensure that everything you have agreed is put into play.

Held my 50th birthday here in a private room for family and friends. The table decoration looked great. Tiffany who helped organise this with me was very helpful and there was no problem tweeking the menu to suit our needs. Had our own friendly staff and nothing seemed too much trouble. Great looking place since its recent refurbishment. The food...

This was our second stay at the Balmer Lawn although we have eaten and visited there several times now. We went to this hotel after a disastrous stay at the Beaulieu Hotel nearby which was quite frankly disgusting. I had mentioned this to the Receptionist (I'm sorry to say I can't remember her name but she was brilliant) and when...

I chose Balmer Lawn as the setting for my Girlfriend's 30th Birthday, we enjoyed a delightful afternoon tea (the egg sandwiches and scones in particular were amazing), massage in the Saltus spa and a dip in the pool, before heading up to our suite. The room (30) was lovely, with a very grand four poster bed and a fab view...

A present from our sons..a night away staying at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. The food was good and the staff very polite and courteous but the room was awful! Very basic just look at my photos! Cracked tiles, dirty paint work and a terrible view out. The outside gardens were very unkept and the whole exterior needs a good facelift!...

My mother and I had booked a day in the spa with a three course lunch and a treatment to celebrate our birthdays and had been looking forward to the day. We were shown to the spa with towels and were not given robes, this meant that every time one of us needed the toilet of to go to the...

Dear Naomi M I am sorry to read your review of your recent spa day with us. I can understand how not receiving the towels and robes at the outset has detracted from the initial welcome at the Spa. It seems the spa team were all in treatments when you arrived and the receptionist failed to see your garments all...

I have reviewed this hotel before, it was last year for our anniversary and as promised we returned. It was just too good of an experience not to go again plus this area is very special to us as a couple and I couldn't recommend anywhere better to people to spend their time than the Balmer Lawn Hotel. We once...

Dear Intel1980 What a fantastic review, that surely is praise indeed returning year after year. Again I can only apologise for the disruption- you are right, it is not something that we can control but I am certainly glad that our team managed to move you to a quieter room and you really enjoyed your time with us.
