Due to an incredibly busy December, we had no time to party ourselves to celebrate an amazing year at the Balmer Lawn, so we held our Christmas Party in January. 2015 was a very successful year for the hotel, from hosting one of our biggest functions to date, the Help For Heroes Charity Ball to Beresfords reaching #1 Restaurant on TripAdvisor! We also opened our doors to the public for a Family Fun Day on our hotel grounds in the Summer to which over 500 guests attended. We cannot wait to see what 2016 has in store for us!

We are busy with lots of enquiries from newly engaged couples this January and now preparing for our first Wedding Fayre of 2016. This will be the very first wedding fayre we have hosted at the hotel, where many of our fabulous preferred suppliers will be in attendance to talk to all couples visiting.

We could not believe when we had our first two Christmas Party bookings for 2016 within a month of the new year! Our Executive Chef came back from annual leave, relaxing after a busy Christmas period, to the news that we have already started taking bookings for 2016! Within a day he has yet again created a delicious menu for our Christmas Parties and Lunches!

We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas from the Balmer Lawn Hotel.
What better way to start off the day, than to announce some winners of our Christmas Competition.

Congratulations janepo******** with the closest guess.

The life of a Wedding Coordinator is fun, busy, challenging, interesting and rewarding. I have been in the wedding industry for years and in that time I have worked with so many lovely couples and suppliers and built up some fantastic lifelong friendships. I love all things wedding from the dress, decorations, vows, family coming together, party and everything in-between. I love what they represent - two people committing themselves to each other for the rest of their lives and demonstrating this in front of those that mean most to them (I’m a romantic – can you tell?!) Every wedding is unique to the couple marrying and I love all of the quirky unique things that are incorporated and make their day special to them.

Our Room 2 renovation was completed last week and was ready for Christmas Party guests to stay in last weekend. We are so pleased with the new look and have already received really positive feedback!
This has completed our year of refurbishing as we started with the Lounge & Bar Area in January, followed by our Savernake & Club Function Rooms, our Gym and so on. We are so happy to hear returning guests' lovely comments about our refurbishments.

The New Forest Showcase at Balmer Lawn on the 15th November was a fabulous success. As the temperature is dropping and everyone is starting to feel the chill of winter, we decided to welcome visitors into our own little winter wonderland held in our Beaulieu Suite.
With a snow machine on the terrace, hot chocolate & gingerbread man station, stunning Christmas tree and decorations, winter cakes on display, mulled cider and beautifully decorated floral centerpieces tying the whole theme together, our Beaulieu suite looked absolutely stunning, fit for any winter bride or groom.

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la la la! 'Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la la la! Don we now our gay aooare, fa la la la la la!
It's definitely all systems go at the Balmer Lawn!
With over 2000 party goers booked (some since April!!!) for our Christmas Parties, we do have to do considerable more than deck the halls!

After 5 and a half years of working at the Balmer Lawn, we regret to announce that today is our Wedding Coordinator, Francesca's last day.
Fran has worked in many departments of the hotel and has achieved a lot in the time she's been here. Taking over the Wedding Coordinator role and placing the Balmer Lawn on the Wedding Venue map, Francesca will be greatly missed by all.
We would also like to welcome our new Wedding Coordinator, Kate Hayne, to the team, we believe she will continue to succeed and support all couples on their wedding journey.
