Reviewed 22 December 2012

Had a fantastic mid-week break in Dunblane. We couldn't get over the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. We were moved to a room with a bath on request when we arrived and were very impressed with the space and cleanliness of the room. The food was great and although the hotel wasn't particularly people there were enough to creatate a nice ambience in the restaurant. We also used the spa facilities on one day whilst the weather wasn't brilliant, very good.
We're looking forward to going back and taking some of our friends with us. There is so much to see and do in the area.

I have just returned from a Christmas dinner,dance with overnight stay, with breakfast at this hotel where everything was great. From the long driveway leading up to the hotel that stands on the top of the hill with magnificent views from our second floor bedroom that faced north to the very friendly staff at the reception desk on arrival. The room was ideal for a one night stay although a bit on the small size compared with other hydro that I have stayed in at Christmas time for a similar dinner dance. There was a pre drink at 19.00 pm before the 19.30pm start to the evenings festivities. The function hall was set out really nice for the meal that was very good, with the usual choice of starters and main meal, although no selection for the dessert. The drinks waiters were not very quick at serving and the prices averaged about 4.50 pence a go . The disco was very good but live groups sound equipment was a bit fuzzy throughout, pity because the singer was very good but not very loud if you we're at the back of the hall. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice for everybody but would you believe it there was no beans, all the guests seated in our area were looking for them - disappointing. There a distinct lack of Christmas decorations everywhere although there were a few trees dotted around. All in all a great night out.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel on the higher floors have fantastic views.

After reading reviews about noisy parties we were dubious about sleeping during a December week-end break. However, we were lucky enough to hear no loud music, and very little noise during both Friday and Saturday nights. Our room was faultless, and all staff friendly and helpful. Having travelled by coach we were delighted not to be treated as second-class citizens, especially in the dining room where we rarely enjoy the pleasure of separate tables. Being on a package our menu was table d'hote but excellent, with enough choices and delicious food served by a delightful young team. We've visited Hilton hotels in the UK and Europe including five-star, and would put Dunblane Hydro top of the list. Many thanks.

Room Tip: We were on 3rd floor towards the end of the wing. No noise from party rooms.

We do aim to keep our non party guests separate from the festive revellers to avoid noise complaints; and are so pleased to read that we reached our goal and you had such a fantastic time. Thank you for your feedback, your praise has been shared with the team.

just had a good party night here, food, entertainment, sevice all good but not too happy with the rooms....for our xmas night we booked away back in april.....we thought an early booking would ensure the twin rooms we wanted.....sadly not....after 3 room changes!!, double beds and strong damp smells pervading, i ended up on a kids bed !!! tho the night duty manager james was helpful and brought a matress at midnight to top the kids bed or i wouldn t have slept a wink, as it turned out i was quite comfy but they need to do something about the annexe....its pretty poor standard and lets the rest of the lovely surrounding down quite badly....sorry but sont be hurrying back

Room Tip: dont accept a room in the annexe

Stayed last night for the second time at a Christmas party. Food was very good, atmosphere was great, the dance floor was full all night, staff as always were pleasant, helpful and friendly. Room was clean, comfortable and had all I needed, breakfast this morning very good. Excellent value for money too.

Had a lovely 2 night break at this hotel, and couldn't fault it. The room was clean and comfortable, staff were very friendly and helpful, food was excellent, and the leisure facilities were very good. It was such a lovely break, and would certainly return. Only down side was the mini bar (but then nobody's forcing you to use it) £12 for a bottle (glass) of wine, and £5 for a small packet of peanuts!

Room Tip: We had a room at the back which looked into a roof, but the windows were glazed, so you couldn't...
