“Excellent break - Sharon Smith”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

My Dad and I stayed here for a few days as it was very close to The Famous Grouse Distillery.
We received a very warm welcome and the staff at the hotel could not do enough for us. I had booked two executive rooms , which were very nice and had lovely views. Beautiful grounds with lots to do for all ages. The Meikle restaurant was very impressive and the food was excellent. We would definitely recommend and look forward to spending time at this hotel in the future.

Room Tip: Executive rooms 179 and 279 had very nice views

It certainly sounds as 'though you and your Dad had a great time, Sharon. No doubt sampling Scotland's favourite whisky at Scotland's oldest distillery added to your enjoyment. We're delighted to hear that you'll be back, when you can try a few drams from our Whisky Wall in the Meikle Bar!

Had a three day midweek break there last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was great and was cleaned every day. The hotel amenities were superb and we enjoyed some of them on our first day as it was chucking it down outside. The food was fab from the full Scottish breakfast or the lighter fruit and cereal choice for the health conscious. We had a light afternoon bite in the Winter Garden with lovely views over beautiful Perthshire. We booked dinner in the Meikle restaurant both nights and the food was delicious. The service throughout the hotel was first class from booking in at Reception to our waiting staff in the restaurants to the cleaners - all could not do enough for us. The walk up to The Knock is worthwhile to see the stunning surroundinmg countryside. We'll be back.

Weather aside, it's brilliant to hear that the Hydro proved a real winner for your midweek break, Arthur C. There's been a fair few 'high fives' around the hotel since we read your terrific review. Thanks from all the team and great to hear you'll be back someday.

My friend and I visited for a Spa Day with Afternoon Tea on 30th May 2014. First time both of I had visited here. Staff - so friendly and welcoming - also very informative and knowledgeable about their job. Spa Staff - exactly the same and very helpful. Spa facilities - OMG!!!! Loved every minute of it - did the job it was supposed to do and relaxed us both. Treatment - both of us had a 25 minute facial treatment and both were not only impressed with the Beauty Therapist, but again the Beauty Rooms were gorgeous. We arrived at around 10.30 am and left at about 6.30 pm. As we were just about ready to leave, the fire alarm sounded. We were told where to congregate, and reassured that everything was okay. The staff were calm and professional. For families who had young children, they were provided with Towels to keep the children warm. The whole experience was first class and many thanks to everyone for a therapeutically relaxing day.

Room Tip: If you stay here, the Victorian Spa is a must to visit!!!

'Gorgeous' is just one of those wonderfully emotive words Cymraes66 and we're thrilled to see it used to describe your recent Spa Day. Our Spa team were especially chuffed to receive your praise. With so much yet to discover, here's hoping we can tempt you back for a longer visit soon.

Visited for Father's 60th Birthday with son and partner. Fantastic array of sports, interests to keep children and adults entertained for full day. Beautiful restaurant with delicious meals.
Perfect for children of all ages or for couples.
Tree-top walk is an adrenalin rush. Heart racing but great to look back at what you managed to do.
Staff are very friendly and polite.

I travelled to Crieff Hydro with my husband as he was celebrating a special birthday. We arrived earlier than expected, however this presented no difficulty as our room was cleaned and ready. The room was very clean, maid service was terrific. We had lovely toiletries, fluffy towels and first class service. We had breakfast which was lovely with plenty of choice. We booked for dinner on our second night and the waitress was friendly and extremely helpful. She was a South African student who took time with everyone and recommended food and wine. Altogether a very enjoyable 2 night trip in a very relaxed but professionally run hotel.

My husband had stayed at Crieff Hydro 35 years ago and enjoyed it then! He was looking forward in sharing his memories with us all. 'Wow!' How it has changed!! He was very impressed with the development over the years, and they hadn't changed the character too much. From the time we arrived at the hotel we felt relaxed and knew we were in for a treat. Warm welcome, wonderful surroundings and comfortable, clean, spacious family room. Food was excellent in all three restaurants with friendly attentitive staff. Activities for everyone. For us the quad biking was great fun and a must do! Entertainment in the evenings were enjoyable, the Cayley music and dance was great fun. Our 4days there were fabulous and we shall be returning. I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue to anyone.

Room Tip: Our family room was spacious and there was 5 of us!

Any review that contains a 'wow' is always pleasing, Clare F. We were thrilled that your husband's 'trip down memory lane' after 35 years was all that he'd hope for - and more. How lovely for him to show you round the Hydro. We're delighted that you're already planning a return visit!

There are certain adjectives that really 'float our boat' when contained in a review, larabethany and 'faultless' is one of them! We were all buoyed by your stellar review and hope it won't be too long before you return for another fun-filled family break.
