Hodson Bay - Winter Stay
Hotel was fine, but it was winter and think it’s much more suitable for the spring / summer months. Room was large for a family of 4 though you may have to live out of your suitcase as there wasn’t much in the way of closet space for 4 people. The pool was fabulous… best bit of holiday… and caters for all (tho tbh I didn’t see a hoist for disabled persons but may have been tucked away for safety til required). Dined at the hotels fancy restaurant. Food was lovely but very little in the way to cater for 9-teens unless eating a full adult meal (kids portions of adult meals aren’t catered for - just basic choices for young kids). Both mine ate adult meals and enjoyed it. However we were a little surprised that they insisted on pre-ordering desserts!! Good food but pricey. Overall the hotel was perfectly adequate for our needs. I could tell that summer would have many more activities and be best time of year. Gorgeous views over the lake and didn’t go on the walk as too wet but am sure it would be lovely.

Lovely place to stay . Would recommend.. only thing I'd complain about is the standard time for checking in and checking out times they have. Have stayed in alot of hotels where check in be 3 pm and check out times should be at 12 pm. Their 11am check out is a little bit to early for ones who's there to relax.. other then that I was happy with the place ..

Ok for an overnight stay - room a little tired
Excellent area. Reception a LONG way from the room. Staff pleasant but felt a little like a number, rather than a guest. Room was slightly tired, with carpet repairs around and some tired furniture.
