The hotel provided a very warm welcome, nice food and a friendly atmosphere. Meals were very pleasant and the staff were very good. The town of Pitlochry is small but interesting and the local area provides lots of scope for visits to distilleries, castles and other attractions.

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.
