Balmer Lawn Hotel is one of not many hotels in the New Forest that do not employ staff on a 0-hour contract.
What are these 0-hour contracts again of which we have heard so much about in 2014?
0-hour contracts mean that there is no guarantee you will be offered work, even if you are employed by a company. It does however prevent you from taking on another full time job.

As part of the current refurbishment, we have been replacing some floorboards on the 1st floor and we have found some letters from 1944. In the Second World War the hotel was transformed into an Army Staff College and some of the "Orders for the Day" were issued from the hotel for the D-Day invasion.

“A very pleasant dining experience”
Tripadvisor Review 12 January 2015
Stayed at the Balmer Lawn for one night. We arrived early on the Sunday for the carvery lunch. The carvery was very good, choice of 3 meats and roasties and large yorkshires which you helped yourself to. They brought out a bowl of fresh vegetables for you. A pianist was playing in the background and was very good value for £9.95 and you could add a starter or pudding for £5.00.
