Firstly we were seated what I can only describe as a coffee lounge.The chap at the next table was working on a laptop. Service was slow and not very attentive .Food was OK but portion sizes we're small. Then to cap it all we were overcharged. So what's to recommend
We had a great short break at the Balmer Lawn Hotel and hope to return soon.
We enjoyed a very nice meal with friends who were equally impressed.
We experienced the best service from all the staff especially Brodie, nothing was too much trouble.
Great staff and a special thanks to an engaging Edgar behind the bar
Friendly, helpful and efficient waiting staff, especially Aliz.
U made my granddaughter feel a special girl on her birthday third visit to hotel we love it here thankyou
A very tasty roast Sunday lunch.
Abdul in the bar area was so friendly and helpul he printed a map to help us on our journey home. Thankyou for exceeding that extra service. I hope Abdul gets some feed back on this comment which he certainly deserves. Jane and peter from Glasgow. ( poole)
Comfortable hotel right on the Forest. Some updating necessary but that’s just my opinion. Foot quite pricey. Staff brilliant.
High quality and inventive cooking, the majority of which came off very well indeed
Excellent food and service, would have preferred a table further into the restaurant but will request that next time.
Lovely hotel will definitely visit again
Good service and food.
The food was excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful . They were knowledgeable about the menu. Having checked everything was ok, they left you alone to enjoy your dinner . They were attentive enough to be ready immediately if anybody required water or drinks. The duck was the best I'd ever eaten.
Perfectly cooked meat, tasty vegetables and helpful staff. I like the ambience and the piano player especially. I look forward to coming back.
Our experience during this visit has been unfortunate. The first evening, Sunday, we had to wait 1hr 15 mins to rcv our dinner. The second evening the service was better, but still slow. The quality of the food was average, the presentation pretentious. Overall the dinner is overpriced. Breakfast is satisfactory.
Fantastic food, service and location. Will definitely return.
Had the most amazing afternoon T with my daughter for my birthday lovely to be able to sit outside, staff were amazing especially the waiter (sorry forgot his name but he was working sat 5 May in the afternoon). Thanx and in the words of Arnie we'll be back. Xx
Excellent - only comment I have is that I would prefer NOT to be asked for a review on two consecutive days. My first review submitted a few minutes back referred to my Thursday night visit, and same applies to my Friday night visit !!!
Excellent - cannot fault - would strongly recommend to others
We were a little disappointed in our experience. Booked afternoon tea - food was nice but couldn't hear myself think let alone have a conversation with the person I came with due to an incredibly loud live singer. We were not offered a tea refill or checked on once. We had given the Travelzoo voucher to the lady we ordered from but were still accosted on the way out (the only time a member of staff spoke to us apart from to take our order!) and accused of not paying. I am glad we did not pay full price for this afternoon tea, £23.95 per person (so £48 for couple) for a small plate of finger sandwiches, 2 scones with jam and a few pastries is completely ridiculous in my opinion. Won't return here.
Excellent food, friendly staff.
Lovely food, only hint of a complaint, the wine list was a little limited. We find the dining room rather dark. The service was efficient and friendly. Have been before and will go again.
Good food, locally sourced!
