We stayed here 2 nights on a deal which included Bed and Breakfast and one evening meal. The food is all good, with an impressive spread for the breakfast buffet. The room was smaller than anticipated, but they did accommodate us with a very early check-in. The bed was comfortable (regular double) and the room surprisingly quiet given the party... More

I stayed with a group of lads who have been going there on a golf outing for the last 19 years. Their reason for returning is the value from the Hotel... More

I stayed in this lovely hotel in June 2014. We had a beautiful room in the new part of the hotel, roomy, spacious and comfortable. The view was to die for. Bathroom with jacuzzi bath was wonderful. Friendly, efficient staff who deal quickly with any problems. Nice breakfast and bar food.

We stayed in the retreat area of the hotel for 3 nights. Our room had superb views of the bay and a Jacuzzi bath. The mattress was a little too firm for our liking, which meant we had sore backs each morning. We ate in the bar on two of the nights, both nights were very busy but we were... More

Spent 24 hours (lunch, B&B and dinner) at the Hodson Bay Hotel for a get together with friends. The location is lovely, right on the lake. The hotel was busy with a wedding, Golden Jubilee, birthday celebrations and plenty of kids but all were comfortably accommodated. The rooms were fine (tea making facilities and that all important iron for the... More

Fabulous hotel. Excellent food, friendly staff, room very clean and tidy and for one with a bad back problem the mattress was first class. The only minor fault was the loud tv in the bar of a premier soccer match in England

Just back from a two night stay in the Hodson. We stayed in the family suite which was fine for us and four children. I would consider upgrading to interconnecting rooms just as our 3 year old might stay in his bed for longer!!! the room had no view, but when travelling with 4 kids, I'm happy to have a... More

We've just spent a glorious couple of days in the Hodson Bay with our children. This hotel really knows how to look after families (which is why this was our 4th visit). For children aged 4-12, the kids club operates 10am-1pm and the children get their lunch here. It recommences at 6pm to 11pm and the children also get their... More
