We have just come back from an excellent weekend at the Crieff Hydro. We were there for a family wedding - not actually taking place at the hotel but we all stayed there - a party of about 25 of us. We stayed in a selection of accommodation - from two 5* lodges to cabins and rooms in the main... More

We had a really enjoyable family weekend break at Crieff Hydro early Summer. We were extremely lucky with the weather during our stay as it was dry and sunny which showcased the stunning setting and ensured that the activities went ahead as planned We had a good-sized family room complete with bunk beds for the boys (16 and 10).

Spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel complex with 2 people with learning difficulties and one other colleague. The staff and facilities were superb. One issue I had was dealt with by one of the managers who spent several hours trying to locate a piece of equipment in Perthshire, sadly unsuccessful. However, their determination and customer care was excellent and... More

Thanks for your stellar review, gwcEdinburgh. We'll always bend over backwards to help our guests and it's a shame that we couldn't locate the equipment for you. Sorry food sometimes missed the mark. We'll look at this now and hope to see you again soon, when we'll be aiming for top marks. More

There was much to enjoy about your wonderful review, elliem123. The title alone made for lots of happy campers amongst the team - thanks! I often say "even a bad day at the Hydro is better than a good day working anywhere else", so it's brilliant that our staff camaraderie is so evident. Please hurry back! More

We had booked Murray Park Hotel but were re-located to Crieff Hydro, because Murray Park was overbooked. Crieff Hydro offers loads of activities form ping-pong to Quad bikes. Even a cinema. Consequently it was very busy with families and I can see why, Kids will not get bored and there is something for the parents, too. The breakfast in the... More

We all felt a bit glum after reading your review, claudiamP5195WD. On reflection, the Murraypark Hotel might have been more to your liking. Sorry. Let's just hope you'll give us another chance the next time you visit Scotland, when we'll do everything possible to guarantee you have a lovely stay. More

My wife and I booked an executive room for our 2 night stay. On arrival we were sent across the street to a flat in another building. The room was indeed of an excellent standard but as we would have had to walk across to the main hotel in the rain as it happened ,I asked for another room within... More

What a shame our finest Signature Room in the Leigh Building didn't suit, TERRY D. We thought you'd enjoy the luxury, tranquillity and spectacular views these rooms afford. As you say, the Hydro's bound to be busy with kids during school holidays. We hope to tempt you back at a quieter time. More

It was kind of you to give us such a high score, considering we tripped ourselves up a wee bit during your stay, Rade D. Sorry. We're glad you had a great time overall 'though and only hope you'll return soon for another 'waist expanding' stay, when we'll find you a 'room with a view'. More

Well I was really looking forward to this stay as my husband had stayed here 4 years ago and had been singing your praises. Upon arrival we received our room key rather rushed by the girl and went to our room 121. I'm still wondering where the rest of the room was. It was very small and I couldn't get... More

We read your review with a heavy heart, Jennifer F. It's not clear if you requested another bedroom, or if you spoke to our Duty Host at any point? In any event, this was clearly not our finest hour. Sorry. If we can persuade you to return, please remind us of this when you book and we'll find a way... More

Oh my goodness, HodgiesS by the sounds of it there wasn't much to celebrate during your anniversary stay. Not helped by the fact that we also missed the mark with our review response. We couldn't be sorrier and would really appreciate the chance to restore your faith in us, if you'd care to make contact. More
