          The lakeside setting was lovely. The staff were extremely helpful and service was very quick and efficinet even though there were several events taking place during our stay, including conferences, weddings, meetings and tourist groups. There is so much to do in the hotel (the hotel runs a number of complimentary on site activities to its quests) quite apart from the hotel spa & leisure facititles) and local golf club is next door!

          The hotel was fablous facilities excelent good location staff very nice will go back again in the near future

          One thing that needs reviewing is the beds in the rooms it was very soft and not great comfort with it

          Pleasant surroundings. Friendly staff. Excellent food.

          I found that the walls seemed very thin. You could hear toilets flushing in adjoining rooms and television and neighbours voices.

          We were at a wedding in the Hotel. Our room was comfortable & clean and we enjoyed the meal and surroundings at the wedding.

          Excellent location,great menu choices and comfort of accomodation.

          Disappointed that swimming pool regulations seemed to require wearing of swimming caps- very unusual and have never come across any other hotel/leisure centre/gym facility with this requirement. Had been looking forward to enjoying the pool facilities but did not due to this.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Due to heavy traffic we arrived after normal check-in time ( I believe it was around 20:00). We hadn't eaten yet and the owner kindly offered to drive us to a nearby restaurant. Rooms are spacious and very clean.

          Excellent hotel. Myself and wife are ex hotel staff who worked at a similar type of establishment and know how hard it is to get it right. Hodson Bay gets it right.

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great and the food was really nice.

          I thought the hotel was very warm. The bedroom and also the reception area and breakfast room were very warm.

          The food in the restaurent was fantastic and the staff excellent.

          A liitle bit out of the main town and taxi service quite expensive

          The grounds were beautiful the space to sit and have a drink both inside and out it was like a picture postcard lovely nice walks golf course and the sea beautiful the food was lovely plenty to eat at all times .and I would go back for a relaxing break 10 out of 10.

          The staff were very pleasant. The hotel is beautiful. The location was excellent. The boat trip was brilliant. The rates were great, really good value. We'd definitely go to the Hodson Bay Hotel again!

          Although the room was lovely, it was a bit noisy on the second night with children running up and down the hallway early in the morning. My parents stayed one night with us, they were in the other part of the hotel which was more modern.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The reception staff were very efficient and when we had a problem with the room we had been given they arranged to have us moved to a much nicer room. Also the swimming pool was very good.

          The first room we were allocated was not up to the standard I would have expected from a four star hotel. There was a very small wardrobe for three people with no iron or shaving points, usually standard in hotels. The view from the window was of the back of the hotel. Considering we seemed to be paying the maximum rate for the room this was disappointing. Also the radiator made a noise all night, this is what prompted me to complain. The second room was of a much better standard. Also the barman in the bar was quite rude to my husband, this was not typical of the manners of most of the staff.

          The breakfast - plenty of food. Very long to get tea though.

          My partner could not come and they would not consider taken the price of the breakfast off. I though it was a bit mean.

          Location, setting, good breakfast, good food, clean room

          Lack of information in room literature about where breakfast is served
