By Emma & Darren Minnok, on 02 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017
Thank you Balmer Lawn Hotel! Me and my husband have recently just celebrated our wedding with you and what an amazing day it was! Kate our wedding coordinator was great, so helpful with everything we wanted to know and very accommodating to all that we wanted to make our day so special. The staff were so friendly and helpful which made our stay even better. I stayed the night before the wedding and everyone was so kind wishing us well. There were also a quite a few children staying at the hotel and the staff were brilliant with them! We couldn't of asked for a better place to celebrate our marriage. We cannot recommend the Balmer Lawn highly enough.

You made our day so special
By Kim & Jamie Ward, on 02 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 04 Feb 2017
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so special and we loved every minute. The rooms were exactly how I had imagined and I really didn’t need to worry at all. All of our guests were so impressed with the hotel, a couple stayed for 2 nights and said it was the best hotel and wedding they had ever been to (they have been to many). Thank you for all your help in a short space of time we had.
Best Wishes Kim & Jamie
The Most Perfect & Wonderful Day
By Nikki & James Rickets, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 01 Oct 2016
We have had the most perfect and wonderful day. The food was stunning. Our vegan guest said it was the best meal he ever had. We worked hard making sure we got the right menu that catered for all our guests and the Chef was incredibly helpful and patient at making sure we achieved this. Thank you Chris!
Our day was simply the best day of our lives which is down to the hotels brilliant staff who made it run so incredibly well. There wasn't one minor thing that wasn't right.
Kate the Wedding planner was super efficient, helpful and patient when dealing with a slightly neurotic bride!!!! I had a couple of wobbles about things and Kate reassured me and answered my endless emails.
Kate sat on the office floor with me going through all the wedding bits listening to my many instructions and putting me at ease. You create an image in your head of how you want your day to be and Kate made that happen.
I even asked her to make the rain stop and she did!! We had torrential rain and thunderstorms in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon!! She has skills!!!!
The banqueting manager Slav was just fantastic. The team did an amazing job and worked incredibly hard and a very long day for which we are so grateful for.
Also thank you to the wonderful and helpful reception team too!
Every staff member made us feel like VIP's and nothing was too much trouble.
My only complaint is that it's over......!!!!!
What a weekend. The Balmer Lawn will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
It was everything we had imagined
By Shelly & Lee Monger, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016
Kate the wedding Coordinator was so helpful in the lead up to the wedding, always quick to reply to my many emails and answered all my questions and met all our requests. I stayed at the Balmer lawn along with some of my family the night before the wedding, which meant that along with my bridesmaids I got ready on the morning of the wedding at the hotel. Everyone was so helpful, our room was lovely with plenty of room for us all to get ready.
The main room was set up exactly how I imagined, with all our requests met- Kate didn't seem to mind when I gave her a to do list of how we wanted everything the day before the wedding- and the team did a great job of making our vision a reality. The food was amazing, from the canapés (which my husband and I unfortunately didn't get chance to eat but our guests raved about) and the wedding breakfast, which went down a treat with everyone! We went for a hog roast in the evening which was so yummy too!
The function manager was excellent. I asked him at the last minute to bring out the kids dinner earlier then planned and he got this done without an issue, and later on in the evening got some games out for the kids to play without me even requesting it.
The suite that my husband and I had for the evening of the wedding was gorgeous too.
Would highly recommend Balmer lawn hotel, and we look forward to celebrating anniversaries there in the future.
Over whelmed at how magnificent it was
By Kelsie & Steve Young, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2016
'My husband and I chose Balmer Lawn Hotel as our wedding venue and are completely over-whelmed at how magnificent it was! The surroundings are picturesque and the building very grand.
The moment we arrived there during our search for the perfect venue, we fell in love with it.
The wedding coordinator Kate was so helpful, friendly & patient. She listened to everything we said and made the entire process stress free.
I stayed the night before the wedding & had an evening meal with family & friends who were also staying. The meal was truly delicious and the service impeccable.
Our guests are still raving about the food & service. So many have said that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding! (We chose the BBQ option). The staff throughout the entire wedding could not do enough for us and always with a smile. They ensured that they not only treated my husband & I like royalty - but also each & every one of our guests! Absolutely Fantastic! Thank you all
We cannot praise Balmer Lawn enough
By Toria & Dave Harris, on 18 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 13 Aug 2016
We held our wedding at Balmer Lawn this summer, and cannot praise them enough. From start to finish, during the planning stages, the day before the wedding, the wedding itself and the day after the event - everyone bent over backwards to make sure it all ran smoothly.
The chef deserves a particular mention. Having thoroughly enjoyed the taster menu a couple of months before the wedding, I wasn't sure what bit of the day I was looking forward to most: the getting married bit or the lunch that was to follow. And on the day, despite cooking for 80+, the kitchen staff did not disappoint. Lunch. Was. Sublime. And the hog roast that followed for dinner was equally delicious.
The MC was excellent, the wedding planner was superb, the bar staff were friendly and professional. Everyone had a fantastic day.
The hotel itself was also a wonderful place to stay. Many of our guests had travelled from overseas, and many stayed at Balmer Lawn. We have only had positive feedback from them about their rooms, the food, the spa and pools and the whole experience.
We are happy to recommend Balmer Lawn on so many levels. You will not be disappointed.
What a Fantastic Wedding Day
By Verity & Tyron Ebdon, on 22 Apr 2016
Well where do we start... We got married at the Balmer Lawn 19/03/16 and felt we needed to write a review before we jet off on honeymoon. What a fantastic wedding day we had all the staff went above and beyond and the service was 5 star! All our guests had a wonderful weekend and all complimented the food and especially the Staff . Special thank you to Kate who helped us with the planning and to our amazing function manager who was with us throughout the weekend and on our special day made sure we had everything going to plan and looked after us all amazingly!
Couldn't recommend this hotel enough for a wedding, and to the housekeeping staff who made sure our rooms were cleaned and ready for our guests.
Could go on for longer but we won't. Thank you EVERYONE at the Balmer Lawn we will be back soon.
Mr and Mrs T Ebdon
Thank you so much for your patience & support
By Julie Berry, on 22 Apr 2016
I just want to say thank you so much for your patience and support in preparing for our daughters big day. Bless You
Lots of talk still going on about the wedding. Such a success which was all down to you and the staff at Balmer Lawn. The staff were all amazing, especially Slav, so on the ball with every detail that I'd asked of him. I really want to bless them all as they blessed us so much, as did you, Kate. And I believe in giving credit where credit is due. They all worked so hard on the day.
