I've been a regular, if infrequent, visitor to Crieff Hydro for decades and it is good to report after my most recent visit that the hotel and resort continues to offer top quality service across its vast range of offers. We only stayed one day but managed to pack in breakfast, lunch and dinner, each exactly of the high quality we expected. Staff are well trained and organised to help customers enjoy their stay and I cannot speak to highly of them. Well done all.

Room Tip: Much of the Hydro has echoes of its Victorian heritage and some of the original rooms have a quirky unevenness. However, they are still great bedrooms.

Many thanks for your glowing top-score review, Dmcslack. Everyone at the Hydro is committed to continuously improving our product and service, so it's great to hear that you approve of the changes we've made. We're hoping to tempt you back for a longer break next time round.

Just returned from a girls weekend and cannot speak highly enough of crieff hydro and the lodges. We stayed in the 5* star lodges (we had interconnecting lodges which was great!), they really were luxurious, and had everything you could possibly need. There were 12 of us with an age range of 20-60, it just shows that there really is something for everyone there. We are all hoping to book up again for later in the year. We would recommend eating in the Miekle restaurant, it was lovely. Great wee chance to get dressed up and have a lovely evening. We done the sumo suit wrestling too which was hilarious. Staff were helpful and friendly, and the mini bus (John the driver was so friendly and patient!) picked us up from our lodge to take us to/from the hotel for our meal.
Overall we all had an amazing weekend, and would highly recommend it. Brilliant value for money too.

Room Tip: For a bigger crowd, interconnecting lodges are a great idea.

It's brilliant that your girls' weekend break was everything that you hoped for - and more, Mary M. John was chuffed to receive your praise: hey, driving 12 glamorous ladies around is a tough job, but someone's got to do it! We're all chuffed that you'll be back someday (especially John).

We were intending to use the Hydro next summer to have a family celebration with 12 members of our family. Thankfully we stayed overnight and after an awful dinner in the Meikle dining room would only give this hotel 3 stars at the very most.The service was not good, had to return steak, then had to ask where my veg. was. Breakfast resembled a canteen with food pilled high in serving dishes. No table clothes on very worn and old tables and why oh why are there plastic palm trees in the dining room !!!!!We stayed in the "LUXURIOUS SIGNATURE ROOM "where we were supposed to have robes, none there, cigarette stubs lay all day and into the next morning outside the door into the Leigh building, all in all not a 4 1/2 star hotel. It appears to be more a conference hotel now and no personal touches for individual clients.

Room Tip: do not bother

We were cringing when we read your poor review, anne M. This was clearly not our finest hour. Sorry. It's not clear if you brought any of these shortcomings to our attention, as some were easily 'fixable'. Sadly, all we can do now is hope that you'll give us another chance someday.

We have just returned from a five night stay in the Hydro when we joined our family for part of the time.

The facilities in the Hydro are second to none, and they cater for all ages, from the elderly and disabled to the young and babies in buggies!

With 60 activities to choose from you will be hard pressed to try everything in the course of your stay.

The bedrooms are well appointed and you can always find a corner to relax in the public areas.

The food is good and well presented and there is a good choice of eating venues to choose from on site to suit your mood or mode of dress!

The six hours included child care for those over age three must be a real bonus for some families, and the fact that the restaurants are very child friendly make it a more relaxing holiday for parents, and indeed grandparents!

The staff are well trained and all of them seem to be very happy in their work. The recruitment policies must be working well!

We will certainly return

This is probably one of the best reviews that we've ever received, Tonythemonk. Thanks! We found it really interesting and it's bound to assist future guests too. It's brilliant to have you as an advocate of the Hydro and hearing that you'll be returning somedaywas the cherry on the cake.

Cottage was beautiful and well equipped it was also spotless.Was very impressed with the facilities that were on offer, there is something for everyone. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, would definitely recommend to friends. Can't wait to return.

We felt very proud of ourselves after reading your glowing review - especially the Self-Catering team. Thanks. A lot of planning goes into arranging family celebrations, so we're thrilled that you all had a ball. Here's hoping you and the rest of the Falkirk clan will return soon.
