Hallmark Hotel Gloucester, tickling the fringe of this historic city with its divine Romanesque and Gothic cathedral, is perfectly placed for both golf breaks. 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.
Of course you don’t have to step outside at all. The boutique Hallmark Hotel has a lot within its stylish contemporary walls. 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. Great for a relaxing golf break.
Then there’s the 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. You’ll find delicious pasta dishes and mouth-watering curries, sitting alongside super stacked Hallmark Burgers, fantastic salads and succulent steaks.
