I’ve visited the hotel for the afternoon tea. To my surprise I was asked by the waiter to give him my credit card so he could keep it as guarantee for the duration of the evening. This was shocking and I refused to do so,...More

Was looking forward to staying in a hotel with a micro-brewery. Sadly the one real ale Smokin' Deer was terrible, it was completely flat, sweet and syrupy. Maybe it had been sitting in the cellar too long, no brewer would want it to be like...More

Dear Logisical I am sorry you did not like our Smokin Deer beer. This has been a huge hit locally and we supply many of the local pubs with it. It is personal taste though and we will take your comments on board. Thank you.

The Balmer Lawn is an ugly building in a wonderful location on the outskirts of Brockenhurst. Without a doubt the best place to be a sunny afternoon in this location is on the hotel terrace as you get to look out at the New Forest...More

Description
The Lounge overlooks our terrace and benefits from a lovely living flame fire, it's a great place to relax, enjoy sitting in our large comfortable leather sofas and read the papers. From fine Champagne to an ice cold beer you will not be disappointed - we have a great selection of wines by the glass, and for those with more exotic tastes some stylish cocktails. Our afternoon teas are renowned for their quality within the New Forest, this is a real treat not to be missed!
