I'm really surprised by the poor reviews I'm reading on here about the Hallmark Hotel Gloucester. I stayed here along with 7 other girls on Sat 30th June for my 30th Birthday and we had a fantastic time! When we arrived our rooms were ready over 2 hours ahead of time so we were able to put our bags in and have a little explore before having a very nice lunch in the Bar area. The rooms were modern, welcoming and cleaned to a high standard. The lunches were very nice although a tad expensive and were served on very nice crockery in a calm and cosy lounge area.
We then spent time using the spa facilities which weren't top of the range but were clean, comfortable and satisfactory. A downside was that the pool is open to the public and there were children and families splashing around which I had not previously realised before booking and not what you would expect for a spa. Never the less, this didn't inhibit us from having a thoroughly enjoyable time in there as noise was to a minimum and it didn't become to busy.
7 out of the 8 of us, including myself all had back, neck and shoulder massages. This was absolutely lovely too. I almost fell asleep during mine!! One of us had a bright eye treatment which was also reported to be very good.
We all had a 3 course meal during the evening as part of our package. The food was very nice and the service from our young waiters was very good too and we certainly gave them a run for their money (in a nice way of course!!). A few things weren't available as listed on the menu ie lamb but we were offered an alternative of steak which incurred an extra charged which was wavered. We also met the manager at the end of the night who was very friendly and welcoming and who took the time to make conversation with my party of eight and assisted in providing us with three ice buckets to take back to our room.
During the early hours, around 2am I think, an alarm did go off, this was very short though and our group wasn't at all effected by this as we were all still up chatting and drinking in one of our rooms. However I understand this would have been very disturbing for people who were sleeping and who had young children. Not good. The alarm also went of again briefly during breakfast but again our group were unphased by this.
We had a great time here, infact we wished it was longer than one day and one night. Was definately worth every penny and great value for money. We paid £79 pp through 'spabreaks.com' and this included full use of spa facilities over two days, a treatment of our choice, 3 course meal, overnight stay and an unlimited breakfast. I would definately recommend this. The positives by far out weighed the negatives. I had a very memorable time xx
