Fabulous Facial and Amazing Massage
Sep 2020
I visited recently with my husband and had a Pro Collagen Facial and he went for a deep tissue massage.
The facial was amazing my skin felt unreal after, so much so I intend to buy the Elemis products myself so I can try and keep up the skin care routine used.
My husband also finds it very difficult to get a really good massage however he raved about his.
If you get an opportunity visit this spa, you won't regret it

Great staycation
Jul 2020 • Family
Had a great 2 night stay with 3 kids - rooms was spacious, clean and very comfortable. There are plenty of activities for kids and a lot of local attractions.
The hotel is very well set up with the Covid-19 policies in place. Plenty of hand sanitizers, 1 ways systems and bookings for meals made the stay feel safe and enjoyable. Well done to all the staff our staycation was a relaxing break after a stressful few months

Wonderful
Sep 2019 • Friends
I spent two nights at the hotel and I had a wonderful time.
The staff in reception, catering, the bar, Spa, leisure complex and housekeeping were efficient, professional and Friendly.
The hotel is large and was full but the staff never wavered from their tasks with a smile. Customer satisfaction is their goal.
I felt valued as a guest.
I have stayed in big hotels before. The staff were nice and the food was good but the atmosphere was not as warm as at the Hodson Bay.
Congratulations to the CEO and well done to all the staff.
I will be back

Amazing visit
Sep 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend and I visited the spa today. We arrived an hour earlier to make use of the thermal suite and other facilities. We received our massages mine was by the lovely jocelyn. She couldn't have been more professional making sure I was okay. Afterwards we were brought into the relaxation suite where we listened to music and enjoyed the view. Would definitely visit again

Allow plenty of time to avail of all here has to offer!
Aug 2019 • Solo
I had received a voucher for my birthday a year ago & wanted to use it before it expired so rang up to book a slot when a window to go opened up. I asked for 11.30 or 11, only available time was 12.30 (which I booked) but the lady on the phone said come along & use the thermal suite first. Ring in plenty of time if you want a specific time. I arrived early to check in to a smileless reception & use the thermal suite which I thoroughly enjoyed. I really loved the sauna & laconium but could have done with more time there. After filling in a questionnaire on arrival, I was told to be back in waiting room for 12.25 which I was for my 12.30 appointment. I didn't get a chance to have a swim despite being prepared with my swimsuit and swim hat & thought I would after the treatment. At 12.45 I went to check with the lady at reception that I hadn't been forgotten. I was booked in for a destress massage but I was getting angsty at this stage thinking my treatment time would be cut short due to the lateness of the start. The lady at reception then informed me that my therapist to be was behind schedule due to a previous appointment arriving late. I felt I could have enjoyed a swim or further time in the thermal suite had I been informed of this when I took my seat in the waiting area. Twenty minutes after my scheduled appointment I was taken in, I had been waiting 25 minutes. The treatment was excellent & meant to be 55 minutes & I was not shortchanged time with the therapist who was skillful and friendly, however I didn't feel the benefit of the massage immediately due to the late start. After the massage I was shown the relaxation room which looks fabulous but I didn't have time to make use of it as I was meeting my mum for lunch at 2pm in the hotel. I got out of the treatment at 2pm & was late meeting my Mum by the time I got changed & paid. I think welcome here needs improvement as does communication if a therapist is running late. My advice is to allow plenty of time to avail of the lovely facilities here & to get thorough use out of all there is to offer.

Disappointing
This is the second time I have stayed here with the same friend we both really like this hotel. We came for a spa day and night.We had two
Treatments my massage was not very good quite disappointing. The girl seemed unsure of herself. Also the thermal suites were out of order and as these were part of our package it was very disappointing we came here for the spa and it is a large part of it. My friend missed it last time also as she was pregnant. that’s why we came back. We were offered nothing as compensation which considering how much we spent there is ridiculous.

A little bit of a Saturday treat
May 2019 • Friends
The Hodson Bay spa is the place to go if you want a little bit of pampering. The staff are professional but really friendly and the facilities including the thermal suite are excellent. I can highly recommend the destress massage - I left feeling fully restored.

Incredible relaxing day
Apr 2019 • Couples
Myself and my partner booked in for a half day package which included a massage and a facial. The whole experience was lovely, some beautiful relaxing rooms to use as part of the package and lovely facilities. The therapists themselves were excellent and made us feel so relaxed, we were lucky enough to have Aisling and Vanessa looking after us. An expensive day but well worth it.
