Running a training course over a couple of days. Stay was great. Stayed in the new build by the swimming pool. Really well looked after by the team. Helpful, friendly and polite. Thanks to Jamie (who sorted some wifi issues for me) and Steve who made sure the the training room worked perfectly. Hope to return soon. Many thanks.

Kids paradise! Just checked out after a great Easter break, our children are 8 and 4 and they adored the Kids Club especially Daire and Ollie! All the Staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. We stayed in the family suite and it is well worth the small upgrade, two rooms linked by a small "corridor", no doors between them....

I attended a wedding in The Hodson Bay Hotel in April and stayed in the wheelchair accessible room. Disabled parking spaces are beside the Leisure centre; hotel reception can be accessed using this entrance. The accessible room is in a quiet area, away from noise of guests using the lift. The bedroom and bathroom are both modern and spacious with... More

We will make this review short, the hotel accommodation was lovely, our double room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff on the Reception Desk were most helpful, the breakfast was everything you could ask for and we would have... More

Hotel booked for meeting on 13th April and from first phone call to final settling account......service was excellent, efficient, friendly, courteous and professional....I could not really have asked for anything more. The concept of dealing with staff who seemed to enjoy what they were doing was refreshing
