Just returned from three nights at the Hudson Bay Hotel - we stayed in a family room, two adults and two children. The room was located in the old part of the hotel; it was absolutely tiny - ordinary double room with one extra single bed and a camp bed. The room was also very dated and basic.
We ate in the restaurant every night - food was good, not superb! One thing that annoyed me slightly was all the woodwork in the 'front of house and restaurant' was being painted - Easter week?? Showed a considerable lack of planning.
Leisure centre was very nice, children really enjoyed it. Overall it was a pleasant stay, but as a family that likes our weekend breaks, there are better family hotels out there with decent size family rooms.
I would find it difficult to recommend this hotel to a friend looking for a family break - but two adults looking for a quiet weekend away, staying in the new part of the hotel, yes I probably would recommend it.
