Historical Traveller Reviews of Hallmark Hotel
Avoid room 47 and others nearbyfrom Spaaddicts
Complained to reception in person - sorry it is a problem with the boiler - no offer of compensation to bill prepaid! As we left we heard other guests complaining of the same problem. Shame as room was nicely refurbished but small. The swimming pool looked good but did not hve chance to try it.
Nice hotel, really close to the beach and nice and quiet.from LondonUK77
get down early for breakfast as they seem to run out by 9:30.at checkout which is unusually early 10:30 they tried to charge us again for the room but this time it was only £70./ £30 cheaper than we paid through the travel agent??,all in all very average.
t have wished for anything betterfrom LittleMissExplorer89
Excellent Valuefrom Newells
Lovely Night awayfrom busy_bee4
Me and my partner wanted a night away from where we live. We decided upon this hotel.
The rooms were decorated lovely,with modern touch screens tv in and gorgeous furniture. We booked a suite and we paid ~£130.00 which we were happy to pay,however normally there are £200.00,i wouldnt say it was worth.
We dined in the Resturant and it was lovely,first class service in there. Very good price aswell.
We didnt use the swimming pool however it looked very clean and had we had more time we would of used it.
Check-out took slightly longer than anticpated as they charge on check-out and people were querying thier bills.
All in all the hotel was very clean,service was good. Locaion was perfect about a 15min walk to the centre.
Nice over night stay
We stayed there at the beginning of April and booked two nights bed and breakfast for 2 adults and 1 child using our Airmiles.
We left the booking very much until the last minute so had little choice and would not have stayed at the hotel based on the reviews left for the Durley Hall Hotel. However the reviews left since the completion of the refurbishment were all excellent and we decided to stay there on the basis of those reviews. We were not disappointed.
We were allocated Room 105 which was of a reasonable size and was newly carpeted, decorated and furnished. It had a huge bay window and was very light. It comprised of a large bed (maybe six foot) and a sofa which had been made up into a bed for our son. Additionally there was an armchair and a footstool, desk/dressing table with a lamp on top and a large mirror above, wardrobe (containing ironing board and iron), half height shelved cupboard (containing hairdryer) with tea/coffee making facilities on top, bedside tables and bedside lamps and a free standing lamp as well. And a large flatscreen television. There was an ensuite bathroom comprising toilet, wash basin and bath with shower over. The overall impression was excellent and the room was clean although the windows could have done with a wash.
If we could have changed anything, then my husband would have liked a full size mirror in the bathroom instead of just a shaving mirror. And we would have liked thinner pillows. We were provided with two fat pillows each and we both found them to be too thick. In hindsight we should have requested that these be changed to something that we found more comfortable - our son had a thinner pillow on his bed so they were available.
There was a wide choice at breakfast and we enjoyed breakfast on both mornings and could not fault it.
We ate in the restaurant on the second evening and had an excellent meal. Our son requested chicken nuggets, chips and peas (which was not on the menu) and received a huge portion which was charged at just £3.95. And I really enjoyed my Thai chicken salad. We did have to query the bill as we were charged for two Pepsi but only had one and were charged for two side dishes which we ordered but did not receive. This was sorted out quickly and efficiently though.
The indoor pool is very nice and my son and I enjoyed a swim.
The staff were all friendly and courteous. Unfortunately one of the waiters did not speak fluent English and led us to believe that we needed to order the aforementioned side dishes which, if they had arrived, would have been superfluous to requirements. That is not a direct criticism of the waiter who was very nice - just an observation.
Overall we were very pleased with the hotel and would be happy to stay again.
Modern Hotel with good Interior Designfrom DizzyStaffs
Breakfast was not bad although they need to keep a check as things were running out and also on the Sunday they did not have freash baked bread like they did on the Saturday, I heard some guests querying this. Lunch snacks were nice & good quality.
The dinner was also very good & well presented, although for a leisure I think it would be nice if they dimmed the lights in the Restaurant to create a better ambience although it is a very nice restaurant with tables dotted around and some quiet private tables also tables set up for one person which is good if you are on Business as you do not feel awkard getting a seat !!
The spa facilities in the hotel were ok however you do have to walk to the main pool via reception but I don't think this is a problem, although I think they need to re-tile the floor of the spa pool as tiles missing off the floor. I did not have a treatment so can not comment.
All in all a really nice hotel which I was happy to return to each day and I think this is suitable for both Business and Leisure, I would stay in this hotel again.
Great Hotel - Really good value for moneyfrom ClarkBristol
