We stayed for 2 nights in late February. We were upgraded to a room in the modern "adults only" wing which was excellent. It was on the top floor so had great views. It was very large, clean and well equipped. The hotel is very family friendly so there were a lot of children there. Being in the adult wing...

My family and I went here for no real reason, just to have a fun weekend. Well we did! I was 8 then and there was a great kids club that kept us away from our parents for nearly the whole day. There was a great pool and diner area and over all we had a really good weekend!

Just spent 2 nights in the Hodson Bay Hotel. Food and accommodation were very good. The kids club was a huge hit with our 2 children. Staff throughout the whole complex were very friendly and helpful. Pool area was very well maintained and the pool itself was nice and warm. Overall an excellent break and we would gladly return.
