So disappointing. My family took a trip to Ireland for a week and we chose this hotel in the midlands largely because of its pool and gym. We phoned the hotel to ask about the facilities before we booked, staff told us the gym was modern and clean and well managed. And were we ever fools...! No air conditioning working... More

My boyfriend gave me a voucher for my birthday and I treated myself with a hot stone massage recently. I had Kerry, she was amazing, so professional and pleasant! Very good at her job! The receptionist was also very nice, I used the thermal spa before my treatment and it was bliss as it was quiet (on a Saturday morning).... More

We were bitterly disappointed in The Spa at Hodson Bay. The gym has lots of good equipment, but no air conditioning whatsoever. NONE. It is like a hot, smelly sauna all day - not a suitable place for a workout. We measured the temperature inside at 23 deg. C. Unhygienic and dangerous. Worse still, there is also no air conditioning... More

I bought a voucher for my wife, its her experience. She was thrilled with every aspect of the spa. It is a luxury spa with no shortcuts taken, pampering at its best.

All the girls working there were so friendly and professional and couldn't have been... More
