From my point of view the weekend we all stayed here took a lot of organisation and headache, but the staff who I was in communication with were excellent and really made things happen. We stayed for a special birthday for my son some of us stayed two nights and some just the one. We had a private dining room...

We have just visited for the second time, this time for a Xmas Party celebration. I can only reiterate what previous guests have said about the way you are treated and made to feel special. The whole evening was excellent and we couldn’t fault the food or service. We stayed overnight on the top floor, our only complaint was that...

We visited the Balmer Lawn on a Groupon and oh how I wished I had booked longer. What a wonderful place and they treat you special. We arrived early but that was ok, we got a lovely room, the spa was enjoyable, the ambience lovely and then the food. The food was presented well and some of the most tasty...

Dear Dawn It was your choice to book a really good value deal through Groupon at £99 for two people including breakfast, if you deduct the VAT and breakfast we actually get around £49.20 for that room! I am amazed by your comments about Room 5, when we recently refurbished this room we uncovered an old fire escape door that...

Having stayed here before was still impressed by the service, decor and hospitality, though for the life of me cannot see the need to cater for dogs at the expense of the hygiene and cleanliness. Really let's the establishment down, such a shame. I wouldn't feel the need to bring my horse or my goldfish!

Dear beeniecrew-182 Thank you for your review but such a shame you felt that allowing dogs at the hotel lets us down. We pride ourselves on being a family run forest hotel and being dog friendly. Families do like to come away with their four legged family members, which makes their stay extra special, however, there is no excuse for...

My boyfriend and I, have just driven back from Balmer Lawn after staying for 2 nights.

Arrived on a very cold and grey Sunday morning mid-day and was welcomed by a very friendly helpful receptionist who informed that check in would be 3pm. We therefore headed to the bar for a drink and some lunch which we had by the log fire in the lounge seated on a leather chesterfield sofa. The décor of the lounge...

We had a wonderful weekend stay with staff very responsive to any requests and excellent food. Spa good too. Downsides are it misses a 'snug' for winter, indoor pool too small and bit chilly and our shower needed to be more powerful but they got all the main things right

Superb chef and wine list. Mattej is an excellent head waiter and is a great asset to the hotel. A very pleasant time at the Balmer Lawn Hotel. Good jazz by saxophonist. They should serve the a la carte service on Sunday as well.
