“Simply the Best Short Break”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Murraypark. Myself and my partner think that this should be the big sister and not the little sister hotel. We have stayed in the Hydro on a few occasions and we can't see how this hotel, it's staff and it's meals should not be acclaimed a 4 - 5*. Our thanks and gratitude goes out to Scott, Sean, Kelly and the really funny Thomas from Heather & Tony. They made our two day stay most enjoyable and one of our most memorable.

Have just returned from a relaxing 2 night break at the Murray Park. Had a lovely weekend - nice room with king sized bed, cosy bar with wood burner and an attractive dining room. Food was good but the hotels main asset is its staff who were friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. Yes, some of the restaurant staff are young, but they are so polite and eager to please if the odd thing is forgotten you only have to ask. We would certainly return to this cosy, friendly hotel.

Just returned from a lovely meal at the Murraypark Hotel Crieff, food was truly fabulous. Staff are friendly and welcoming and couldn't be kinder to my children. The lounge bar has a lovely wood burning stove for pre dinner drinks, setting a relaxing ethos. Would highly recommend and plan to return.

We have now stayed at the Murraypark some 7 or 8 times and never tire of returning again and again. As keen golfers we only spend a limited amount of time during our visits at the Hydro itself, and do not therefore really feel justified in paying the much higher prices. The rooms at the Murraypark have all been recently refurbished to a high standard and the communal areas are relaxing and welcoming. The staff are very friendly and in our experience the food is as good, if not better, than at the Hydro. Some good promotional offers are to be found in the cosy bar. Two areas where there is room for improvement are the sometimes slow service in the restaurant, and the poor surfacing in the car park. Try to avoid putting your cases on the back seal of your car if you have previously put them on the ground in the car park.

Room Tip: In our experience rooms in the original building are better than those in the extension.

my wife & me went with her folks to stay at Murraypark Hotel for our wedding anniversaries, our first anniversary & her folks's 48th anniversary. All the staff are welcoming and friendly, our rooms had good clean and spacious. In the bar, there has good beers and good choice of malt whiskies also good wines when we has ordered wine for our evennig meals. The dining staff need more training how to serve meals balancing from the starters-main course-desserts also breakfast, cereal/fruit-full scottish fry up or fish dishes or light hot breakfast eg poached egg on toast. Many empty bowls, plates & small plates left on the table, they should collect empty bowls or plates out to make us dining spaces. Need to training them before the Easter coming soon. We really enjoyed much to stay overnight and good meals/drinks, we hope to go back again some time.

First time at Murraypark and will be back! Loved it here the room was perfect for us (family room) with the bunk beds tucked into a little nook - ideal.
Very clean (hubby did grumble about crumbs on a chair at breakfast but that was the only complaint!) and lovely intimate ambience.
The staff were the highlight everyone was welcoming and friendly especially Scott and Sean.
The breakfast was excellent and we had lunch which was very good we just had toasties which we couldn't fault but the boys lunches were outstanding with proper hand made small cheeseburgers and chef had even made little flags with crabby patties written on ( our 4 year old had asked for a crabby patty! ) .
Their puddings were also impressive - jelly and ice cream came with fresh strawberries drizzled in white chocolate sauce, ice cream served on a slice of lime along with the jelly! And the brownie and ice cream was also lovely. 2 very happy boys!
We will book for an evening meal next time as we had already booked our meals out this visit.
Did miss not having a biscuit on the tea tray in the room but that's not a big deal.
All in all very happy with our stay -considering my hubby usually hates taking me to a hotel as I'm so fussy - the Murraypark should be proud!
Thank you

We stayed for one night and looked forward to a peaceful evening.
The reception staff were welcoming and pleasant and we were able to take our spaniel into the bar and room with us which ws a bonus.
Dinner was poor quality and the staff although pleasant not well trained- a large hen party arrived and they forgot to bring our desserts. After trying to attract the waiters' attention I eventually had to get up after half an hour and go and find someone to bring it to us!
A poor night's sleep followed due to said hen party banging bedroom doors and partying in the adjacent bedroom until 1.30am- a call to reception at midnight made no difference and no apology was forthcoming when we checked out the next day.
Brekfast took over half an hour to come although the restaurant was quiet and was greasy and unappealing.
Having stayed at Crieff Hydro on a number of occasions, this is a poor relation.

We're so sorry that inconsiderate behaviour by other guests spoiled your stay smileplus. This is very unusual, as the Murraypark's normally a tranquil haven. Here's hoping you'll give us another chance someday, when we'll pull out all the stops to impress.
