    Very nice ang big room with one kingsize bed and 2 single beds.Very good service of the reception staff and very friendly.

    Room was quite expensive, but this was due to the triathlon event that took place. This was also the reason of our stay. But hotel is ideally located for this. First night was much more expensive than the second one.

    Superb

    Friendly staff, eager to cater for any of your requirements. Manager (blonde hair) on duty was extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Had originally booked two nights however stayed the third night due to being very impressed with the facilities. Stayed Thurs - Sat. Thurs was very quiet and had the pool/jacuzzi etc mainly to ourselves, likewise on the Friday however on the Saturday th hotel was hosting a wedding and therefore was very crowded, especially on Sunday morning for breakfast. Excellent breakfast with wide range and variety. Young couple on our first weekend away together and the Hodson Bay did not dissapoint. Very close to Glasson, where we dines two nights. If you dont drive there is an excellent taxi service provided by Hennessy Taxis whom provide a very comfortable and affordable service.

    Stayed in executive room in new section above hotel fitness/pool and spar facility. The room fittings and outlook were of a very satisfactory standard, with easy access to the car park as well as to the hotel's main facilities/restaurants. The up market L'escale restaurant was very good with an affordable 2 or 3 course pricing deal. We got access to our room well ahead of the advertised 4.30 pm. Midday checkout was good for us. We found hotel's reception staff very polite and helpful, as were fitness centre staff. Value for money is important to us as we were travelling on a budget - this hotel ticked the boxes for us as it did for location (about 2 hours drive out of Dublin) less than 10 minutes drive off the motorway, with a golf course and lake recreational activities. We would happily stay again and recommend to others.

    The hotel is a major conference and wedding venue - intending guests should be careful to establish that a major conference is not in progress. One was finishing as we arrived (perhaps 200 or more participants) so we were fortunate that our evening dinner and breakfast and fitness centre activities were not shared with hundred plus conference goers.

    Very good

    Swimming pool + spa area is good and pool depth is very safe. Staff were friendly and dealt with delay at check in and lack of towels in pool efficiently. Enjoyed music in bar in evening.

    Breakfast had good selection including fruit + cereal. Cooked breakfast was OK but has to cater for large numbers so it somewhat mass produced.

    Fabulous

    - Fabulous location with amazing views and access to a range of activities - Very friendly and obliging hotel staff - Wonderful views from windows in room - Good food - Great venue (we attended a family wedding reception for 250 people)

    There was nothing not to like. At some stage some of the older rooms will benefit from slight upgrades eg mixer taps etc. but this is just an observation - not a criticism.

    Guest rating

    The view was probably the only redeeming feature.

    The smell of smoke in the corridors (all of them). They decor is extremely outdated and I was surprised that it is considered a 4 star hotel.
