Superior room

A historic spa hotel with two AA Rosette-awarded fine dining in the heart of the New Forest - includes breakfast, dinner allowance and spa perks

The stunning New Forest in southwest Hampshire has been bewitching visitors for more than 1,000 years - ever since William the Conqueror commandeered it for hunting ‘beasts of the chase’ in 1079.

At its heart, within three acres of manicured grounds, sits the elegant Balmer Lawn Hotel & Spa. This 19th-century former hunting lodge’s individually-styled and thoroughly contemporary rooms have previously hosted none other than King George V, Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower throughout its illustrious history.

The VIP treatment continues with the plush Saltus Spa, fine dining at Beresfords restaurant (which has been awarded two AA Rosettes), an on-site gym, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, plus squash courts. Best of all, the woodland playground of the New Forest National Park is just a few strides from the door.
