We love this part of Scotland and try to visit at least once a year. We would not consider staying anywhere other than the Hydro Hotel. We always get a lovely warm welcome from not just the reception staff, but the restaurant to. Their standards are really high, with quality ingredients expertly put together, they stand out from other "Shearing's"... More

Hello there and thanks for this lovely review. I love the title too.....quite a few regular customers feel this way about us and say how comfortable they are when here. Frank certainly adds a nice bit of character to the place and whilst he is not everyone's cup of tea, as he can be a very cheeky boy on occasion,... More

We enjoyed a rexlaxing weekend break at the Hydro. The hotel met all our expectations. The decor is tasteful, the food was good and the dining room was well staffed and organised. Our room was clean and comfortable with a good view. We didn't use the leisure facilities but the swimming pool and jacuzzi looked good.

We needed a place to stay on our trip home and I found the Hydro when I searched the web. Price was fine for an overnight stay. When we entered the grounds I was hoping it had some upkeep done over the years. I was very pleased when we entered and saw that the hotel had been renewed. Diane at... More

Two friends and I spent 2 nights here. We were not part of a coach tour as we travelled independently by train. It is a lovely big hotel though a couple of areas do need some decorating/upgrading especially the curtains in the lounge which were literally falling apart. The food was fine though the Table d'hote menu was rather restricted... More

We have just arrived back from a bus tour organised by Shearings and have to say we have thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days stay in the Hydro Hotel.

Went up to Bonny Scotland for 4 days with Shearings & stayed in this lovely hotel. The bed was very comfortable. The bedroom spacious. The bathroom needs upgrading though. The shower was rubbish - the water was far too hot and we were not able to adjust the temperature. However, the bath was very relaxing after I let it cool... More

Have been doing bus tours for many years in both Scotland and England and in my opinion this hotel was well above usual standard. My room was warm, large for a single and everything spotlessly clean. Family I travelled with had a problem with heating in their room but this was quickly resolved. We found choice on set menu good... More

stayed here on business. The hotel is a lovely period property. It's not super modern but what do you expect from a property like this. The staff are very friendly and the rooms were clean tidy and very functional. The free hotel wifi is very fast and the grounds are just fantastic. It's nice to stay in a hotel that... More

I visited this hotel with walking friends for a three day break in November 2014. I was not the organiser and was somewhat concerned that the hotel is part of the Shearings Group whose hotels I've had cause to complain about in the past - see my Trip Advisor report on the Invercauld Arms at Braemar for details.

The hotel rooms are comfortable with good bathroom and a well stocked for tea and coffee making. The hotel is obviously quite old and obviously well used but was clean.
