History of the hotel
Built originally as a private house/hunting lodge at around 1800 and transformed into the building you see today at around 1850. The Hotel has a great history, as guests you will be in good company with many famous people throughout history having been to the Hotel to name drop a few - King George V, Russian Royalty, J.J. Sainsbury, Churchill and General Eisenhower.
The building was commandeered during both World Wars. During World War One the Hotel was used as a field hospital. Some still remember injured soldiers being wheeled on luggage trolleys from Brockenhurst Train Station to the Hotel!
In the Second World War the Hotel was transformed into an Army Staff College. Some of the "Orders for the Day" were issued from the Hotel for the "D Day" invasion. During our extensive refurbishment of the Hotel we frequently find spent ammunition under the floorboards.
The Hotel's name is taken from the lawn to the front of the Hotel, originally thought to have been called Palmers Lawn (a historical typo culminating in Balmer Lawn). The name is mentioned in the Doomsday Book – how's that for history
