Had one of their special deals with bed and breakfast for two nights and one evening meal. Would strongly recommend this as food was good, especially evening meals. We used both restaurants. Breakfast ok in buffet but some of food could have been hotter. Staff in restaurants very friendly and helpful. Room fine and shower excellent. Not sure if I...

We stayed at the Crieff Hydro on Monday night after spending the night before at its sister hotel. I'm well in for showing your staff appreciation, by having a staff party for a couple of hundred people according to the receptionist, this came at the expense of the guests that had booked for that evening.

As you say, jimbobBuckie, our hard-working team really do deserve this annual party. However, our senior management covered every area of the hotel during this period and we're very sorry indeed if your stay was adversely affected in any way whatsoever.

Arrived shortly before the check in time of 2pm but were offered to check in as our room was ready. Check in was hassle free and the staff on reception were very friendly and informative. The reception and ground floor area were beautifully presented. Our room was on the first floor which was quiet and how we had hoped. The...

Visited today for Sunday lunch in the Meikle restaurant. Food was very good as always, beautiful Sirloin of beef and a nice surprise for my father in law was a chocolate brownie with a candle in it. Lovely attention to detail given we never said (just handed in birthday balloons for the table )

Booked to stay in a Lodge from Mon to Fri as a reasonably cheap break. When we arrived we couldn't belive how well equipped the place was and were annoyed we brought so much stuff we didn't need. (It's not a complaint... However when it comes to marketing, the pictures online don't do the cabins justice). The facilities are excellent...

As always very well looked after. One member of our family is disabled and staff went out of their way to be helpful. Rooms lovely, plenty of space and warm. Food good, we dined in the bistro for a more relaxed atmosphere. We will be back!

Booked an overnight for my husbands birthday after reading the reviews. Hotel grounds were lovely and the views were impressive. Staff were friendly and helpful.
