Murraypark Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Crieff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We went to this hotel as couldnt get booked in to Crieff Hydro, and how glad we did. The staff were excellent, very attentive and much more personal than those at the Hydro up the road. The food was fantastic too, and better priced than Hydro also, ditto drinks. the breakfast was table service, but this means fresh food, rather than the bun fight at the Hydro.
We went to the Hydro at night, but was absolutely jammed, what with two wedding receptions on and kids running everywhere so returend to the cosier bar at the Murray.
Staying at the Murray gives you free access to the pool, putting, kids play etc at the Hydro, so this is a much better option for those who want the ammenities but not the crowds at the Hydro.
We will definitely be going back.
Only tiny gripe is that the breakfast was 8-930, a wee bit later, even till 10 would be better.

Room Tip: ask for room in the new extension

Between the Hydro and The Murraypark we feel that we've got something to suit every taste, alan t and it's great that the combination of both worked so well for you. Hope it won't be long before we can welcome you back for another cosy break.

We went to the Murraypark for our dinner whilst staying at Crieff Hydro. We settled for a main course only, not because the other courses did not attract us but because that was all we felt we would be able to manage.
A good choice of dishes. The chicken Highlander (chicken breast stuffed with haggis) was delicious, and my wife was pleased with her steak. The service was excellent: friendly, obliging, well informed. And the food was served piping hot - a real bonus.
And if there was canned music, I was not conscious of it.
Most relaxing it was. We would be very happy to go back.
Very good value.

Great wee comfortable, cosy, clean welcoming hotel. Staff were very friendly and more than helpful especially Lynne the manager. Quiet, comfortable night's sleep in a nice big room. Breakfast was delicious, excellent poached eggs! We used the leisure facilities(pool, sauna etc.) at Crieff Hydro too, as this was included. Such good value.

We were all 'cock-a-hoop' after reading your excellent review Jen B. It certainly sounds as though the Murraypark/Hydro proved a winning combination for you. It's great that you also found your break to be terrific value and here's hoping you'll return soon.

My husband and I are just back from an overnight stay at this hotel. The room we had was a family room ( having two bunk beds in a small annexe-type room) although it was just the two of us. We had no complaints however as the room was very spacious and having tea/coffee facilities and also the television. On to the meal - and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Very well presented and the young waiter was very pleasant and looked after us well ( as did the young waitress). There is a large restaurant/conservatory and a lounge and bar area also. Crief Hydro is just a 10 minute walk away and although we could have used the pool, sauna, cinema etc , we didn't due to not knowing that we could have until we read the leaflet in the hotel room! Next time we will do so. I will most certainly return , if not for an overnight stay, for a lunch or dinner.

Stayed at the Crieff Hydro but decided to eat at the Murrypark. We were made most welcome by the staff who were friendly, efficient and helpful.
The food was excellent and the dining experience was relaxed and very pleasant.
Will definitely go back.

This is the only hotel in Crieff that allows dogs in the bar for a bar meal, even though we were staying elsewhere. We were made to feel very welcome and we had 2 dogs (a Labrador and a West Highland Terrier). The first evening we booked and were given a cosy corner seat beside the log fire. Connor, our waiter, bent over backwards to be helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and Iain, the chef, and his staff are to be complimented on the standard of meals produced. We booked for the following 3 nights and each the same table was set and made ready for us. We would certainly go back and perhaps even stay in the hotel. It was as good as being at home!
