“Hen night paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Visited crieff with my husband and friends 2 years ago and stayed in one of the 5 star lodges. Absolutely loved every minute. Gorgeous hotel, gorgeous cottages and wonderful staff.

Returned for my Sister in laws hen weekend with 11 girls in June 2013, we had 2 of the 5 star cottages and again could not fault anything. Pure luxury, everything is thought of from free tea and coffee to washing up powder and tea towels.

So many endless things to do for families, friends or couples. Would return year after year and recommend to all I meet.

Room Tip: 5 star luxury self catering cottages are gorgeous.

Your wonderful review was so glowing that it practically jumped off the screen, Michelle M! We're all chuffed that the Hydro has delivered on each of your (quite different) breaks. We think there's something here to suit everyone and your feedback proves it. Great to hear you'll be back someday.

Our 40th wedding anniversary weekend - shared by our two daughters and their families.
The "sleeps-6" house was spacious, comfy, clean, safe for wee ones, and had everything we needed. It was set deep amongst trees, so the veranda was especially wonderful as the weather was glorious.
The facilities the hotel offered covered the interests of the 6-month old to the 68 year old… and all the staff were genuinely friendly and cheery.
The Saturday night celebration meal in the Meikle Restaurant was glam but relaxed, and again the staff made the evening friendly and special.. The babysitter from the hotel was so warm and confident that leaving the wee ones gave us no concern at all.
We look forward to coming back on the next big family "do". It's already lodged in the memory of our 3 year old grandson as being "lovely being all together"

We took our first child as a baby to the Hydro 38 years ago and have returned a number of times with all our children and now grandchildren. Over the years we have seen the hotel improve and upgrade to maintain its position as a leading Scotland resort. We have enjoyed every visit and this year after a full day our oldest grandchild, now 10 and at an age when it can be difficult for him to find the right friends and activities, announced that he had had the best day ever.

It's so lovely to hear that your family has enjoyed such a long and happy association with the Hydro, wpwGlasgow. Receiving such praise from your grandson means the world to us and we hope to welcome you all back for many more multi-generation breaks in the coming years.

We stayed in one of the suites which was one of the best rooms we have ever stayed in and was great value. We stayed as a couple, however it is a really family friendly hotel with lots of activities. The only thing that let it down was the breakfast, poor greasy buffet food, noisy dinning experience and indifferent waiting staff. However overall a great stay.

Room Tip: Stay in a suite in the old Victorian house/building away from the main hotel.

We're kicking ourselves that breakfast let down an otherwise brilliant stay, FreeStark. However, your feedback has been already been acted on and, as your stay was great overall, we're hoping that you'll give us another chance to impress someday.

We stayed as a family at the Crief Hydro for the first time. Everyone had a fabulous time and were very impressed by the facilities at the resort. Whilst we did not have time to undertake many activities our advice would be to book leisure activities early as they seem to get booked out early.

The only reason that we did no allocate 5 stars was that our first family room - number 14, was just above the loading bay. That meant that every morning at 7 we were disturbed by the various delivery vans. We asked the hotel management to change rooms and they were very accommodating.

Well worth a visit.

Thanks for posting such a pragmatic review, The_Cheshireset133. Four stars is fair, considering your original bedroom wasn't ideal. With so much yet to discover around the estate, we hope that you'll all return soon, when we'll allocate a great room and aim for top-marks.

We stayed here last week with my mother and our daughter, son in law and grandson. Everybody had a great time and the food and staff were excellent. Our grandson wouldn't take time to eat as he enjoyed all activities from the Big Country. Bouncy Castle and swimming. My mother also enjoyed herself watching the children dancing to the music at night and playing their games during the day. This was the first time that we brought my grandson and family and they will certainly be back. Thank you to all staff.

Well, MOLLY19782014, by the sounds of it your entire family had a ball during their stay! We were all exhausted just reading about what you'd managed to pack into your visit. It's the 'cherry on the cake' to hear that you're already planning a return visit and we hope to see you again soon.

We have just returned from our 3rd stay in 4 years in the 5* self catering cottages - has to be good when the children are already asking to go back! While both the accommodation and activities are on the expensive side they are worth every penny. The accommodation is spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly want. The staff working on the various activities are friendly and helpful, and safety harnesses and helmets etc are always fitted before anyone is allowed near equipment. The cottages are almost a mile away from the hotel (the grounds are so big) but it is a lovely walk to the hotel, but a big selling point for our family is the 24 hour 'Freewheeler' people carrier that will bring everyone from the hotel or activities to the accommodation and back - at no cost - this is super as it means that once we arrive we don't need to move the car from the front door of the accommodation, and also we can go out for dinner or to the evening entertainment and both of us can have a drink and someone will bring us home again. There was also free Wi-Fi in the cottages.
