Hotel's Favourite
What a beautiful relaxing hotel. Martin and I went for 2 nights. The staff are amazing so helpful nothing is a problem. From checking in to checking out we had a fantastic time. The rooms are so fresh and the beds you won't want to get out of. Special thumbs up to chef the food is amazing try the burger most scrumptious burger I've ever eating and the side side is to die for. The waiting staff in the restaurant are really efficient and so polite. Even the ladies that tidyied the room were so lovely. Like Arnie says we'll definitely be back.

Great location , great food and friendly staff. Was on a bike and kayak tour of the Shannon and no issues with storing my bike overnight. They have added a new spa and leisure centre since my last visit several years ago. Will plan to return for a longer stay next time.

I had the pleasure of attending a wedding recently at Hodson Bay Hotel and it was absolutely flawless from start to finnish. The food was super throughout and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The recently refurbished bedrooms are beautiful and I honestly couldn't recommend the hotel enough for any occassion.
