My husband and I just returned from spending the weekend at the lovely Hodson Bay. This was our second time to stay in this hotel and it will not be the last.
Our room was no 644 and the view was just amazing. We had a view of the entire lake as the room is on the 5th floor. The room was bright, very clean and as for the bathroom the shower was very spacious and in the corner was a jacuzzi. The bed was so comfortable. We woke to an amazing and breathing view every morning, and to make it even more enjoyable we had breakfast delivered for only €7.50 per morning and it is so worth it.
Both my husband and I used the indoor swimming pool. It was so relaxing. The bubble pool and the hydrotherapy area is a must they are both so relaxing in every was. It's a 20 meter pool. My husband used the steam room and said it was very good. You are supplied with towels all you need is €1 for your locker.
We had a beautiful meal in the L'Escale Restaurant, this is a top class service restaurant from the moment you arrive until you leave. The food was just outstanding.
The only fault I had was in the car area where food is served, we ordered the food and drinks together, but we were served the food first before our drinks. This bar is great if you only need a sandwich but my husband ordered fist and chips for €16 he was very disappointed in what he got as it was so not worth it.
Overall the staff are very friendly, the hotel very clean and bright.
We would stay here again.
