In early August we visited the Hydro Hotel at Pitlochry with Shearings `Pitlochry & the Falkirk Wheel. On arrival the coach was met by the deputy manager who gave us details of rooms, meals, facilities etc. Transfer to rooms was very efficient, the room was adequate but could do with a little tlc. The tea/coffee/ biscuits facility was excellent, filled up every morning which is sometimes not the rule in higher priced hotels. The breakfast was help yourself to flakes/fruit and a cooked breakfast was served at the table. the cooked breakfast was reasonably small with only one sausage but this is obviously governed by the price, the breakfast was completed with tea/coffee and toast. The dinner served between 6.30pm and 8.30pm which meant no-one needed to rush was very good
with a choice of starter, four choices of main meal, choice of dessert (the ice-cream is recommended) and coffee in the lounge afterwards. The dining room, bar/entertainment room is furnished to a very high standard although lager is a little expensive at £3 a pint.
Entertainment is included on 3 nights including the exceptional singer Bruce Davies on Thursday evenings (don`t miss Bruce, you will not be disappointed, leave your packing to later). The only downside to the hotel is the location 10 minutes walk out of Pitlochry up a steep hill but for anyone reasonably fit this is not a problem and anyway buses/taxis are available and the hotel can`t help where it was built. Overall an enjoyable holiday at a nice hotel.
