The swimming pool and sauna facilities seem dated albeit a recent makeover was only to improve first impressions. I have never know a pool with such a variation in temperature and at the same time the depth of the pool can vary by almost a foot! Recent marketing material stated the pool has a lazy river and water jets however these have not worked for months and the water jets are only used to fill and/of top up the pool. When asked why the lazy river is never in operation the reply came "we are not insured to use it anymore" despite it being heavily marketed!
The changing rooms and hall are always freezing cold with a distinct lack of heating that only reminds me of the olden days in public swimming pools and not 2013 in a four star (yes that's right **** star) hotel. Given hallmarks size it seems they want everything to look pretty but the practicality of it all is nothing short of laughable. Oh and the windows have all been blacked out so you can't see the mess on the other side which used to be a beautiful golf driving range!
Get your wallet out hallmark and make some improvements!
