My sister and I have just returned from a five day holiday with Shearings at the Pitlochry Hydro hotel. We were under the impression it had recently been refurbished. It had but only partially. The room we had which was on the ground floor had a very badly stained carpet, leaves growing through the bottom of the windows and 2 very old radiators, which came on depending on the tempatrure on ther outside of the hotel. It never came on at night and when we complained about it a young man who was serving behind the bar brought a small heater. Before he had time to plug it in the night porter came and told be to get back to the barand there were customers waiting to be served. He did not tell him in a nice way and we thought he should have taken him from our room before talking to him in the manner which he did. He then took the heater away and brought us a smallblower which was useless. Wespoke to the manageress the following day and she said if it waas not very cold outside then the heating would not come on in the bedroom, which I think is very poor, seeing as it was supposed to have been upgraded, and is now known as a coast and country hotel. We have been on several holidays recently with Shearings and this is the first time we have not been satisfied with the hotel and would definately not go to this one again.
