We have recently started to discover the advantages of coach holidays with Shearings - comfort and relaxation all the way! This hotel is one of their Coast & Country range and is in the Scottish Baronial style, in a beautiful position overlooking the little town of Pitlochry. Of course, this elevated position does mean it's a trek back up the...

I went to this hotel with Caledonian Travel with three friends. The rooms were nice and spacious and the large bathroom had a good shower. Check in was quick. The food was very good and the staff attentive and efficient. The only disappointment was the entertainment was cancelled on the Saturday night and we were not told earlier so we...

Hi, thanks for the fair score despite the 'no show' on Saturday. We were certainly victims of circumstance there as our act was en route and had complications on his journey, giving us no chance of securing an alternative, and particularly on a Saturday night. This is an extremely rare scenario and I can only apologise. Glad everything else was...

Went with Shearings for a mid week stay. Had a large ground floor room with lovely view at the back of the hotel, the room was warm and the radiator boosted the temperature quickly.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just ten minutes walk from the town centre, the historic and recently refurbished Pitlochry Hydro Hotel overlooks the town of Pitlochry itself. The Pitlochry Hydro hotel offers an excellent range of facilities for visitors, including a modern, well-equipped gym and heated indoor swimming pool. The hotel houses all of the amenities and facilities you would expect from a Coast & Country venue. In addition, our staff will offer you a warm, friendly welcome, and ensure that your stay is as relaxing and memorable as possible. Pitlochry is a superb base for walkers. Ben Vrackie towers above the town, and the Cairngorm Massif is close by to the North. Loch Tummel and Loch Rannoch are also easily explored using the hotel as a base. ... more   less
