Hi, really sorry to read that you had a couple of issues at the Hotel. Our double beds are standard doubles throughout the Hotel. There was nothing personal at check out, Diane has a whole Hotel (some 130 people) to check out on a Friday and at certain moments during that process I can forgive her for switching off for...

Enjoyed a super few days here with a large group. Whilst not the most modern hotel, we were quite happy with it. The food was lovely, with enough choice on the set menu for everyone to find something they liked. Staff were great....friendly and efficient. The gym and pool were a nice added extra, but could do with modernising. Didn't...

Very much enjoyed our week at this hotel. The hotel is old but has been brought up to date and has a good pool and gym attached. Food is good and staff are excellent. The hotel is up a steep hill so be prepared.

We went on a coach holiday to th Hydro" it was on a steep hill, so made life difficult to visit the town. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

Hi, you are quite correct, this is a stunning area of Scotland ! Glad everything was to your satisfaction and you took advantage of our leisure facility.

The Pitlochry Hydro hotel offers an excellent range of facilities for visitors, including a modern, well-equipped gym and heated indoor swimming pool.

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.
