I stay from time to time at the Crieff Hydro; a former temperance establishment that now has a small but popular bar. This advance has yet to hit the Sidholme Hotel. There are tables on the nice gardens, and on the verandah, where it would be nice to sit down with a drink. But you can't! You're not even allowed... More

I stayed here with my daughter and a friend and was very pleased with the hotel. The main building is beautiful, as are the gardens. We stayed in the annex, which is a little run down and could do with a lick of pain but for the price we paid, it was amazing value. My daughter loved the pool, which... More

I was really looking forward to staying in the beautiful building and rooms you see on the pictures presented however on arrival I was told I would be starting in a separate building on the same grounds as the main building. This building was damp and cold, the room had no television and the bathroom wash shared and unclean. The... More

We were given the disabled room. A large room with a Wet room, doors onto a lovely garden. A beautiful hotel to look at with the most wonderful Music/Organ room. A painted ceiling and lovely space. Very helpful staff, lovely grounds and large indoor swimming pool with excellent changing rooms. What's not to like.

It's not the best place we ever stayed at, but certainly not the worst. On first impressions the location, gardens and the exterior of the hotel look good, even the entrance hall, with it's large central staircase. The reception doubles up as a coffee/tea bar. The reception staff are really friendly and most helpful. But unfortunately that's where it stops.... More

Spent 4 nights at Sidholme, as other guests have said the rooms are hot and the window in my room was broken so it couldn't be opened, but I'd rather be hot than cold so it didn't bother me too much. However, the other family member found their room uncomfortably hot. I've stayed here before but this time I was... More

I had no idea when I booked this cheap hotel that it was a RELIGIOUS Hotel, so be warned if your an atheist, or you just plain dont like religion. Its not shoved down your throat at any point, but it is what it is (Unbeknown to me) We stayed in room 16 and wondered why it was so very... More

Good Hotel for price we pay'd, rooms cleaned everyday and staff very helpful. Location very handy for town centre and seafront approx 5 min by foot, cannot comment on food as we eat out every day. The pool was amazing very clean and plenty of towels and the walk through the grounds were relaxing, parking tended to be a problem... More

Booked to stay 1 night at the hotel, Tuesday 26th May, it cost us £49.50, excluding breakfast, which we thought reasonable given its location.The hotel is situated about 5 minutes walk from the town and seafront. The hotel was originally built has a stately home so the building and extensive gardens look rather impressive in pictures but in reality was... More
