We recently stayed in the Hodson Bay for a one night break. The hotel is located on the river Shannon (Lough Ree) beside Athlone Golf club, about a 5 minutes drive from Athlone Town Centre. While we didn't experience all facilities, those that we did, were of a high standard:
- Check in / Reception:
Efficient, fast and very friendly, all required information given upon arrival
A little limited and somewhat pricey.However the surrounding are pleasant as are the serving staff. Breakfast was superb, with a wide range of fresh cooked food, fruit, cereals, juices etc. A wider array of breads would be nice for those who don't go for the full irish option.
Excellent service and a cracking blazing fire in the corner. Just the thing for a quite night out. The usual one man band type entertainment as supplied, but it was at no point annoying ir intrusive
Our room was in the original building, overlooking the water. Very well maintained, spacious and comfortable, but will become a tad dated soon.
Great of you want to chill out in the hotel, where there are fitness facilities and of course the lake and access to the Shannon. A taxi is required into town though, if you want a night out.
