Hodson Bay Hotel

This waterside hotel adjoins Athlone Golf Club on the western shores of Lough Ree, just four miles outside Athlone town.


With lovely lake and island views and a wide range of leisure activities on site - including boating, fishing and a fine leisure centre - it's in great demand as a venue for both business and social occasions.


Until recently it was the only establishment providing such facilities in the area and, to meet the demand, it has grown considerably since opening in 1992. However, demand is still growing - notably for midweek conference activity and weekend breaks - and a further 50 bedrooms have been added, and also a destination health spa and leisure complex.


There is always something going on here but the down side is that, despite ongoing renovation and refurnishment, wear and tear is hard to keep up with at this very busy hotel, especially in public areas.


Newer bedrooms are bright and comfortable, with double and single beds in most rooms; many also have lough views.


Keeping food standards up to the high quality to which the hotel clearly aspires is also a challenge which can be difficult to meet.
