My family all hired a lodge back in November to celebrate my mums 70th birthday. We had a lovely time & the lodge was great for all of us (8 people) & dogs. However the week we were due to go to Crieff Hydro my mum noticed a special offer on the lodges which was a few hundred pounds cheaper!...

We're delighted that your mum's 70th birthday celebration at Crieff Hydro went so well, Deb0rahsp. Like many hotels, travel companies and airlines, we occasionally offer fantastic last-minute deals to fill empty spaces, but leaving it so late to book can be a risky business. Sadly, it's just not possible to offer refunds for any stays booked well in advance.

The Crieff Hydro is run like a well tuned Swiss watch. You cannot fail to notice that the staff are all working together to provide a great experience. Add to that the amazing views from various areas in the hotel, the delightfuly Victorian pool and the stunning breakfast, just to name a few, and you'll have a great time. There...

We're so chuffed by your top-score review, belindascotland - especially the phrases "well tuned Swiss watch" and "buzzing yet relaxing". Your lovely comments are well-timed (pardon the pun) giving everyone a huge boost at the start of British summertime. Thanks and we hope to see you again soon.

Just recently stayed here with my mum. Don't get me wrong the hotel is absolutely gorgeous I totally loved the decor and the fountain outside. I personally was hoping for a cross between the luxury cruise ships I used to work on and Center Parcs, a bit of luxury and activities and it didn't quite live up to the expectation....

Whilst we were delighted to read about the great parts of your stay, ang123977 we were crestfallen to learn of the less successful elements. Sorry. It's not clear if you told us about these at the time? If not, that's a real shame, as we'd have appreciated the chance to offer solutions. Let's just hope this won't deter you from...

Stayed at the Crieff Hydro recently with friends. I have previously stayed here but on business so this was the first time I had the opportunity to sample the full facilities. Check-in was swift and efficient. We had pre-booked a meal and this was confirmed when checking in. Our room on the top floor had wonderful views over the Ochil...

I booked a two night, weekend away for myself and my boyfriend as a treat for his birthday and we had a lovely time. The hotel is in a beautiful location, close to the town of crieff which is nice for a walk around. There are lots and lots of things to do around the hotel which was very surprising....

We enjoyed reading about all the successful parts of your birthday celebration stay, Jennifer M. Sorry about the squeaky floorboards, which can be hard to fix in a building dating back to 1868. Please remind us next time and we'll allocate a new wing bedroom.

Your review was short, but sweet, Diane R and every word was 'music to our ears'. That you're already planning to return to the Hydro someday rounded things off nicely too! Thanks and here's hoping we'll be welcoming you back before long.

My partner and I were apprehensive before our visit as had read lots of terrible reviews about the place. However we had also read some positive reviews and so were keen to go with an open mind. Unfortunately our weekend echoed the poor reviews and we left feeling very disappointed. Service Most were friendly but service was very rushed and...

A great place tucked away in the countryside. Loved our stay here and so did the children. The pool was very clean and the spa is gorgeous. The soft play area could maybe bit a little more toddler friendly as it was bursting with bigger children but there is also a bouncy castle and arts/crafts for the children too. Breakfast...
