      Overall very good

      Overall we had a wonderful stay at the Hodson Bay. Upon arrival our room was not ready and we did have to wait almost an hr after our check in time to get our room, however this was the only issue we had. The staff were all really friendly and professional, the food was fantastic and the facilities were excellent. I would recommend it and I would stay again.

      Was in the newest rooms very nice. In superior room had large smart tv witch every hotel should have as standard nowadays. Spa and pool very good (€1 locks stupid!) Only down side food from bar and restaurant are overpriced for all you get.
