Beverage Company, January 2016

“We have a held two functions at Crieff Hydro recently. One small meeting and one good sized event for customers. The staff were excellent in taking care of everything and all parts of the business functioned seamlessly together from room bookings to food and beverages! There really was a can do attitude and the staff were really flexible to our needs”

Water Company, November 2015

“Our Spring and Autumn events for our senior management team were once again a great
success.  The events team continually work with us to present new and innovative ideas for hospitality and use of facilities coupled with a constantly high and friendly standard of service from our dedicated duty managers. ”


Farming Conference, October 2015

"Since October 2015 we have held two conferences and three training events at Crieff Hydro and one conference at Peebles Hydro.  We have received nothing but positive feedback from all the attendees at these events and this is down to the facilities and hospitality delivered by the teams at Crieff Hydro and Peebles Hydro. 

You, (Karen), do a wonderful job and are always there to answer any questions I have. I am thankful for this support, the information, laughs, and everything the hotel assists me with each time I am in contact.  The success of any event is down to the team working away in the background, from the efficient reception staff, to co-ordinating and preparation of refreshments and meals, to the porters and housekeeping staff who are always on hand ensure the event runs without a hitch.

Crieff Hydro and Peebles Hydro will always be my first choice when holding an event, you provide a wonderful service, are thoughtful and accommodating and I look forward to working with you again in the future."

People Development Organisation, April 2015

"I just wanted to acknowledge the team at Crieff Hydro for their support in the coordination and delivery of our Leadership Intensive.  Our group of 13 spent four days immersed in the beautiful surroundings of Crieff Hydro and shared they had a wonderful time.  The meeting room was perfect, with floor to ceiling windows providing lots of natural light, access to the
balcony and a view out over the grounds to the hills, absolutely added to the experience.  The food and service throughout the week was brilliant, they enjoyed the evening entertainment in the bar along with a private dining and cocktail making experience which went brilliantly.  Thanks to all who made the week a success for our team." 


Telecommunications, July 2013

I wanted to give you some feedback on our recent meeting and adventure experience at Crieff.

Overall the whole team gave it a 10 and thoroughly enjoyed the day. The room was fantastic and it was noted how easy it was to log in and have our presentation going. The rolls and coffee etc were lovely and the room extremely clean and tidy. An inspiring place to work.

Lunch again was extremely nice and thank you for coming to meet us and walk us to the dining area. We all thought that was a lovely touch. The staff in the Brasserie were what I'd expect to see in a 5 star hotel and Joe and the manageress were professional in their service. In fact one thing we continually commented on was the friendliness and professionalism of the staff where ever we were.

Mike and Steve in the adventure area were also fantastic and the afternoon was the perfect fun way for us to get to know each other better.

My boss commented that there was not one thing he could think of that he did not like or would want to improve.

So thanks again for your continued great service, attention to detail and flawless business manner. I know we have stirred some interest with our stories and pictures over the last couple of days and please pass my comments on to your leadership team.

Thanks again


Veterinary Group, 2013

"This is the second year that we have returned to Crieff Hyrdo for our Scottish annual conference and the event was again a huge success. The planning and assistance that we had in the run up to the event from Karen in the Events team was superb - efficient, friendly and helpful. We would also like to give special thanks to Garry, Banqueting Manager and his team for all of their help during the event and who couldn't have been more accommodating - nothing was too much trouble. We also loved having our own special event mobile phone so we were able to contact Garry or a member of the team at any point throughout the conference, day or night! The function rooms were arranged on brief and the presentation equipment in the Earn and Barwick rooms were state of the art. Our formal evening dinner in the Melville Hall was excellent, from the beautiful set up of the hall and tables, to the lovely food and friendly bar staff. We also had some great feedback from our delegates about the hotel in general, the facilities, surroundings and food. Many thanks to all again and roll on our 2014 event!"

Construction Organisation, 2013

"Crieff Hydro was a great location for our corporate annual meeting weekend. Leah in the Events Department was fantastic to work with over the five weeks it took to plan two days of events for 50 of us including employees, spouses and children. The meeting room was perfectly arranged and the presentation equipment was state of the art. Our private dinner in the Ferntower Suite, prefaced with cocktail hour was delicious. The 14 children enjoyed their time at Big Country and their own dinner just for kids at the Brasserie. Saturday at the Activity Centre for 18 hole golf, par 3 golf, and mini golf was highly rated. Our group lunched at the Club House and then participated in the Mini Highland Games, followed by a prepared on site BBQ dinner. Donna, the Club House Food & Beverage Manager was fantastic keeping the ABI group well hydrated all day long! The accommodation was excellent as well. My room was in the Leigh House, a Signature room. It was luxurious to say the least. Others that stayed in the Executive & Standard rooms said they were very comfortable as well. I finished my weekend stay with a full body massage and it was the perfect end to the weekend."

Anna Douglas, Team Away Event, 2013

"Finally got round to writing after our fantastic team away event at Crieff Hydro.  It seems appropriate that, as hydro power developers, we went to the Hydro!  The event was a total success!  All was well planned and worked as I had hoped.  Dinner was very good and many of my colleagues enjoyed numerous refreshments in the bar afterwards!  The staff couldn't have been more accommodating generally, so please pass on our thanks.  The outdoor activities were also just what we wanted.  We had a lovely walk to the centre after breakfast, then enjoyed shooting and 4x4, and of course a bit of silly Sumo!  We will consider using your facilities again for corporate hospitality or future events and will be in touch in due course."

Peter MacLeod October 2012

"ADSW has been using Crieff Hydro for its annual conference for the last 6 years, the service we receive is of a consistently high standard and the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating making the running of a conference so much easier. Excellent feedback from delegates sees us returning to Crieff for our 2012 conference and no doubt many years to come."

Conference Care (Corporate Group), Sept 2010

"A very big thank you to all the team at Crieff Hydro for delivering such a professional and enjoyable client event this weekend. Every detail was thought through leaving no margin for error. Claire Owens is one of the highest calibre Event Managers we have worked with and certainly a huge asset to your team. The biggest thank you must go to Caroline Harries for being the best host I have worked with in the last 10 years. Her understanding of the event and our clients expectations was second to none and fills me with every confidence that Crieff Hydro can and will deliver fabulous events for us in the future."

Secretary - The Scottish Licenced Trade Association March 2011

'This is the second consecutive year the SLTA has held its annual event at Crieff Hydro and again we were warmly welcomed by very attentive staff ensuring that the event was a memorable one for all the right reasons.  The organised events went very well indeed and the food, entertainment and the Hydro staff were all first class.  Everyone was very impressed with the hotel, particularly the setting for our formal dinner in Melville Hall.  Many delegates were of the opinion that the last two conferences have been the very best in recent times' 

The Gray Family, Special Occasion Event 2013

"The 70th party was a huge success.  The meal and service provided was wonderful.  Harry had a terrific time.  We have enjoyed the services of Crieff Hydro over a period of 12 years during the Easter break, along with a wedding, a 60th, 90th and now a 70th birthday celebration.  We have always been delighted with everything."

Dr Fiona Spence Jan 2011 

'I have just returned home with my husband from our first experience of the legendary Falkirk Royal Scottish Country Dance Weekend.  The whole stay was delightful and I was so impressed with all aspects of the hotel.  I have been as a guest before but not in the last few years and I was struck by the improvements in everything.  It is sometimes difficult to make changes in older buildings without jeopardising the style and architecture but you have managed to 'pull it off'.  The bedrooms were well appointed, clean and attractive and all staff were unfailingly polite and helpful.  I would like to congratulate both management and staff for meeting the high expectations I have when I stay at a four star hotel.  Indeed, your hotel is one of the very few which has exceeded those expectations'
