My second visit to the Hodson Bay was as lovely as the first. Beautiful setting overlooking the frozen lake. This hotel is situated just outside the town of Athlone, yet with the surroundings, even in the depths of winter, and the facilities and hospitality/service you easily feel away from any hustle and bustle and able to relax.
Although we visited in the sometimes quiet period between Christmas and New Year there was still a great atmosphere around the hotel. A wedding had been going on, so lots of people around, but it is large enough not to feel crowded either.
The spa is superb, the breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and nice late closing time and the bar lively. The staff are very friendly and really seem to care that you enjoy your stay.More
