This spa hotel is in Matson, on the south-eastern fringes of Gloucester. It is 3.5 miles from Gloucester Cathedral, which is home to outstanding medieval architecture, sculpture and stained glass.

The shops, attractions and eateries of the historic Gloucester Docks and the Gloucester Quays outlet shopping complex are a similar distance from the hotel.
Closer to home, just opposite the hotel is the Gloucester Ski & Snowboard Centre, which has a 240-metre main slope. Gloucester Golf club is also nearby.
The Hallmark Hotel Gloucester has extensive leisure facilities including a health club with a heated indoor pool, a squash court and a gym. There's also a spa, a steam room and a sauna. Indulgent spa treatments include Indian head massages and mineral salt body scrubs. For children, there's a separate kids' pool. The health club and spa are open to non-residents too.
The restaurant serves a brasserie-style menu of international favourites including a prawn curry, beer battered fish, sirloin steak and slow cooked lamb with couscous. The bar serves light bites and a separate menu including sandwiches and salads. Afternoon tea is served daily in the lounge. The hotel has several meeting and function rooms and is licensed for civil ceremonies.
