The 4 Star Hodson Bay Hotel has a lovely rural setting by the banks of Lough Ree about 7km from Athlone town centre. It has developed a reputation as a place for self contained lake side holidays with lots of water based activities to be enjoyed as well as an indoor leisure centre, spa facilities and an adjoining golf course.
They have a total of 181 air-conditioned bedrooms, singles, doubles, twins and family rooms that sleep up to four. Last but not least there is also one top floor, top of the range Penthouse Suite.
It covers 30 m² and has a large balcony from where you can enjoy some extra nice views over the lake, and a spa bath in the bathroom amongst other luxury features.
The rooms are divided between the original hotel building and the more modern, so called, Retreat section.
The hotel overall is popular with families especially during school holidays but the Retreat building is adults only, hence the name presumably, and it also has the nicest rooms, including the Penthouse Suite.
This is not to say the rooms in the original building are sub standard at all, just that those in the new addition have more of a sleek modern luxury hotel feel.
