I used to go to Crieff Hydro for a week every year with my grand parents and I have only the very best to say about it from the perspetive of a child. It has an amzing childrens club which is so much fun, lots of outdoor activities and a pool with the most amazing slide!
As a family we had so much fun here and the childrens club gave us opportunities to make friends and our grandparents time to have meals and dance at nighttime etc while we were having fun. Crieff is a lovely town and I can guarantee a great experience for the whole family!

I've been to Crieff Hydro several times now and always thoroughly enjoy it - it has a great balance of huge grounds, lots of activities, and gorgeous restaurants and bars. On this occasion, it was a gorgoeus autumn day so we enjoyed a lovely walk around the trails. On checking in to our room, we felt that from the last 3 or 4 visits we've had to Crieff, we were allocated the smallest room we have had (it was still a nice size but the extra space is always welcome). We also discovered that there was no soap/shower gels/shampoo in our bathroom, it had obviously not been replenished from the previous occupant. We called Reception who dealt with this quickly, however we felt that this hassle was not something which we should have to have chased up. My fiance and I each paid £10 to access the Victorian Spa and enjoyed our experience, until we were in the spa pool and another guest realised that they were sitting on a razor!!! Why this was in the spa, I have no idea, but it certainly made me question the cleanliness...

We has dinner in the Meikle restaurant and also drinks in the bar and were delighted with both...the meals and cocktails were delicious.

Unfortunately, house keeping started chapping on doors at 7.50am in the morning, which I felt was a bit antisocial, especially as we were only staying one night! A longer lie would have been appreciated before breakfast - which was also as good as normal!

All in all, we did enjoy our stay at Crieff Hydro and I still love this place, but would say that standards on this occasion were not as high as normal and hope that my next visit will be worthy of an excellent rating once again.

Many thanks for your sterling review HannahM0406. We're delighted that you had a lovely stay and only sorry that the Spa incident and early morning call rubbed off some of the shine. Please remind us about the room size issue the next time you book and we'll try to allocate a larger bedroom. Hope to see you soon.

Excellent hotel, great amenities, lovely food. We were only there for a cheeky overnight, dinner, bed and breakfast. Having been several times before we knew what to expect and were not disappointed. Excellent value!

The only slight dust on the shine was during dinner when we ordered drinks, they did not arrive until we were on our main course and one of the glasses was chipped, so we had to send it back. Tea and coffee at breakfast was also very slow. Tiny issues which were a bit annoying at the time did not spoil the overall experience.

We stayed in Oct 2012 with our baby daughter and a group of friends. The hotel has been refurbished and it has been brought into the 21st century. It is a happy mix of the old and the new. Travelling with a baby has proven a little more challenging that we thought (and we've done some challenging travel!) and staying at the hydro was a perfect way to relax for a weekend. All the staff were lovely and helpful. The breakfast offering was large if average, while dinner was very nice. The spa treatments were quite good if not best I've had. The swimming pool for babies was warm, but typically over-chlorinated. This led to our daughter's eyes and skin becoming irritated. For a spa hotel, Crieff Hydro should move with the times and use UV light or Ozone as both are much better alternatives to chlorine. So one star lost on that (and the breakfast).
Otherwise, it's a lovely place, in a spectacular setting with plenty to do for everyone.
Would go back with a group of friends with kids and looking for a fun, activity packed holiday.

We booked our stay a month in advance and got a great rate for dinner, bed and breakfast for myself, my husband and our 3 month old baby (who, of course, wasn't eating!).

On arrival the check ln was fast friendly and efficient. we were, however, really disappointed with our room. On the website they state the rooms are updated on an annual basis. Our room (16) clearly hadn't! It Aaa a family room which was big enough but the bathroom was dated, with some mould and needed updating! The room itself was comfy enough but looked nothing like they advertise on their website so we were a wee bit disappointed. My husband also found a used sachet of rude cream half under our bed which he stood on! !! Not very pleasant. The room was directly above what must have been a delivery bit as the noise was awful. I struggled to get to sleep at night due to the banging noises and was woken up very early with delivery vans banging about right outside our room.

Luckily the evening meal and breakfast was nice, with the staff being very helpful. We also took our baby swimming which was nice but sadly the baby pool was closed so used the adult pool.

Overall it was a nice stay. We do wonder though if we were given an older (and not as nice room! Which was noisy and dated!) Due to the cheaper in advance rate we received. We would go back but would worry about room allocation. It wasn't the nicest!!!

Five day break at the end of the Summer school holidays. We've been before and the whole package is hard to beat given quality of the rooms, service, restaurants and activities for the kids.

Even though its not cheap it does offer excellent value given the inclusive packages with meals etc.

If you can avoid weekends and the ubiquitous wedding parties then there are deals to be had and a great, relaxing time for all.
