Location. Location. Location. The Hallmark Hotel Gloucester, tickling the fringe of this historic city with its divine Romanesque and Gothic cathedral, is perfectly placed for both business and pleasure. The honey-stoned Cotswolds are within easy reach – expect instant daydreams of escaping to the country – as are the rolling hills and snaking rivers of the Welsh borders, and shopping honeypot of Cheltenham. Even closer to home, there’s a superb 18-hole golf course within a decent three-iron range, and dry ski slope just a snowball toss away – two surefire ways of relaxing after a hard meeting or conference.
Of course you don’t have to step outside at all. The boutique Hallmark Hotel has a lot within its stylish contemporary walls. An awful lot. For starters there’s the 95 rooms and suites, all clean modern design with a mix of bold colours and earth tones, richly patterned carpets and seriously good beds.
Then there’s our acclaimed brasserie. The rather good team of chefs alchemizes fine seasonal ingredients into a menu embracing both classic British and European dishes, and Asian and Moroccan specials, including the likes of Italian arancini and Goan prawn curry. Small wonder it’s a favourite of locals as well as guests.
Naturally, you may well wish to burn as well as devour calories. You’re in the right place. As well as glass-backed squash court and excellent gym with state-of-the-art fitness kit, we’ve an inviting pool (and another for children), steam room and sauna, as well as an serene spa where highly trained therapists work wonders for the body and soul, with everything from stress busting Swedish Massages to Detoxifying Body Wraps.
If you’re coming from the Midlands or the West Country, we’re easy to find from the M5. Come and explore the wonderful villages and unmatched Cotswold scenery. After a day’s sightseeing you’ll be ready for a relaxing afternoon tea or meal in our brasserie.
You’ll find plenty to do in Gloucester. From entertainment and designer outlets, restaurants and ten-screen cinema at Gloucester Quays, to the magnificent cathedral where scenes from Harry Potter were shot, to Kingsholm one of rugby’s great venues.
The Hallmark Hotel Gloucester can host your wedding from start to finish. We have a licence for civil ceremonies, lovely gardens and a range of suites for parties large and small. Come and meet our dedicated wedding coordinator and let’s plan a day to remember.
With such stellar facilities, alongside two banqueting suites capable of handling parties from two to 200, and a dedicated hugely experienced events team, the Hallmark Hotel Gloucester is firmly established as a hotspot for weddings and landmark celebrations. It’s your big day, after all, and you want it in secure, professional hands. Of course, it also makes us a perfect choice (just a couple of minutes off the M5) for conferences and training and team-building days.
Finally, if you’re with us for pleasure and have the family along, you’ll want to know that we’re within wand-waving distance of a stunning location from several blockbuster movies. The exquisite late 14th century fan vaulted ceiling of Gloucester Cathedral cloisters appears in three different Harry Potter films – truly wizard inspiration for a visit.
