First Class stay
Wonderful accommodation, great restaurant and friendly, helpful staff.
Was a lovely relaxing few days.
Room was big. Decor was basic. With few marks on ceiling. Bathroom door was hanging off and
Sink tap slow.
This hotel was ideally placed for the BIC and the friendly helpful reception staff were really great.
Only negative point was that the lift was out of action and the room was on the third floor. Which was ok for us but may have been a problem for older guests.
enjoyed stay at hallmark especially the spa and treatments
Very bad night's stay on 20 December 2013. 4-star hotel
Lift wasn't working. I was given a room on the fourth floor. Hotel did offer a room on the first floor but advised that there was a Christmas party that evening and it could be noisy so decided to take the room on the 4trh floor (long way up). 2. Just a sheet and think blanket on the bed. No duvet.
3. No heating in the room in the evening/over night. I was freezing cold. There was no extra blanket in the room to put on my bed. Had to wear my coat in bed the whole night..
4. No night staff - called down to reception twice - at 3 and 3.30 am but no reply. 5. There was a party going on in the room next door for 5 hours (3 - 5 am) and couldn't report it as there was no night staff. Didn't sleep the whole night and was freezing. Complained to the duty manager in the morning. She apologised and said that the duvet covers had been ordered but hadn't arrived yet. Apologised about the heating not working. I wanted a full refund but she just gave me £20 and wrote a report to give to the manager. I haven't heard from the manager to apologise and give me a full refund.
My plans were ruined the next day as I was so tired. Not staying there again.
disappointed with service provided in not solving problem - stayed 27/12/2014 - 1 night,,
did not have heating or hot water during stay - we complained to reception with a promise it was being dealt with but this did not appear to be the case,had to complain to duty manager in order to obtain a small room heater,this had no PAT test label so was not happy to leave on when not in room or when we slept...also booked executive room this was no more than a double room that you would expect in a british hotel( this is supposed to be 4*...)we did have a discount but we were looking for the comfort that you would expect from this type of hotel...
Hallmark Hotel & Spa Bournemouth
The place was looking tired, in much need of some tlc.
Got the room for a bargain price via Later Rooms and was upgraded to an executive room so was very happy with the value for money and location as you could walk to beach and town easily.
Hotel a little tired with cracked tiles in bathroom etc but good for the price.
Won't be staying again
Not to much to say except a few of bits which will stop me returning: Rooms were OK but I paid for an executive room with King sized bed or executive double.
Had neither, two single beds pushed together which isn't comfortable in the slightest. I paid for the room which included WiFi - couldn't get it no signal so had to pay an additional £15 to an external supplier so i could work in my room. Not good enough when you clearly advertise. lastly, I was in room 106 and the shower was poor at best, no power shower - it was a dribble shower. Left feedback with hotel and still not heard anything back 4 days later......... Wont be returning!
Excellent staff but hotel a little tired
We arrived around 12.30 and were let into our room (56) early it was very cold as the radiator was not on, I turned it on and we then went out until around 6 pm.
When we got back the room was still cold as the radiator did not work. Advised reception and she checked our room, we were then offered room 66 or 68 - neither had working radiators. We were finally moved to room 12, the radiator in that room also did not work but the duty manager then provided an electric radiator which eventually warmed the room (she also provided a bottle of wine as an apology). The radiator eventually worked on our second day, however there was a stain (presumably water) on the ceiling of both the bedroom and bathroom, the bedroom ceiling was also cracked; the bath was also slightly stained and has mis-matched taps.
At breakfast the next day some of the food was cold. We also used the spa, the reception staff were very poor when we arrived to use the facilities they were more concerned about complaining about another client complaints rather than showing us where to go.
The staff providing the treatments were excellent. Finally the lift is till not working, I see from Trip Adviser that this has not worked for some time. I did put all these comments on the form provided.
