Afternoon Tea and Pampering Experience for Two
Lovely Mum and Daughter
Brought this for a birthday present and it was fantastic. Afternoon tea, waiter polite and helpful, lovely sandwiches and cakes and even let us take home what we hadn't eaten. Afterwards we used the facilities in the spa, such as the pool, jacuzzi and Steam room for as long as we liked. Lovely hotel inside although it doesn't look nice outside! But a perfect Mother and Daughter day. Would definitely recommend to people and also do again.

Very, very disappointing
I booked this as a gift for a friend's birthday. Four of us went to Tewksbury Golf and Country Club. The 2 stars i have given the experience was for the spa area which could do with re-decorating but we had a nice relaxing time. The afternoon tea i would give zero points to, the bread was stale (only 2 very small sandwiches each) and the cakes were also VERY hard and stale. The only choice of cakes was scones and chocolate brownies - they were inedible and so hard that i was banging them on the table and they didn't fall apart! Also, the cream for the scones was whipped cream and not clotted cream. The coffee was nice though!

Disappointing birthday treat
Bought this as a birthday gift for a friend. We went to the Hallmark Hotel Gloucester.The facilities were shabby, we had to wait over half an hour for a locker key. The sauna door was opened and closed with a piece of rope. The whole pool area was shabby.The afternoon tea was awful, the sandwiches were stale and the jam and cream for the scones were disgusting the jam had hair in it and the spoon was stuck fast in the cream. They replaced the jam and cream but the cakes were hard and very uninviting, the staff were not friendly either. all in all a very disappointing experience.
