We stayed in the Hodson Bay at the weekend on a Living Social Offer...we would of being very disappointed if we had paid normal hotel prices for the weekend. I booked two rooms for myself and my partner and another couple(our friends).our room was fine if not a little outdated but had the basics you would expect and was clean. Our friends did not check in until about 7pm that evening their room was one of the rooms that had being refurbished but it was absolutely freezing when they checked in..we went to the bar for some food thinking on our return that the room would of heated up..but we were wrong the room was still freezing at 12am when we returned..i rang down to reception on my friends behalf as i felt bad after booking and recommending the hotel to my friends..the night porter on the phone could see from reception that their was a problem with the heating in that room he came up to their room and gave them a plug in heater which was not great but they said he was helpful and nice...to make a long story short and after many phone calls and visits to the reception the next day their heating did not get sorted until saturday evening. They were offered no composition or apology for this from reception even though i had informed the male receptionist on duty that it was unacceptable that the room was not warm on my friends check in. The men enjoyed a game of golf on the saturday and said the golf course was good..we went to the spa and enjoyed a lovely massage we also enjoyed the leisure facilities. Breakfast was nice and all the catering staff that looked after us were very nice and professional even though we paid in the restaurant for the extras we received on the saturday evening with our meal they were on our bill again on check out which needs to get sorted as it is quite annoying paying for something and then being charged for it again. All and all we would return to the Hodson Bay but our friends who had the cold room would not .
