Just spent 3 nights at Crieff Hydro lodges (Culcreith Lodges) - great accommodation - spacious, good furniture, stunning views, peaceful and much nicer than Center Parcs. It's quite a hike to the hotel but a free courtesy bus helps on rainy days... hotel pool is good for kids but could do with updating in showers and changing areas...
Wouldn't eat at hotel. had dinner at Meikle which was terrible - my wife had to return vegetables twice and in mend they just left her with the lamb and brought her a potato dish (which had then been zapped in the micro) on a small side plate... all crammed into small spaces, poor service and overall is more a fancy canteen than an upscale restaurant.. Piccolo was better but again is more canteen-like..... cafes need fresh food vs bought-in food like biscuits in wrappers and coffees could be made with a proper barrista machine not a push-button automatic machine.. just lets down the feel.
Definitely a family/child-friendly resort (which suited us) but I'd stay clear of the main hotel and, instead, enjoy the countryside and the views.More
