I’ll start of by letting people know my review is based on their customer service only and not their hotel as I believe it’s only fair to give an honest review. We booked this hotel for over the Xmas break, well in advance. In November it looked as though covid wasn’t going to allow our trip so after some emails back and forth we decided to cancel and was told we would receive a full refund of the deposit we’d paid, that being £729 this was no small amount of money. They advised that refunds could take upto 28 days to which I emailed to say that was an excessive amount of time for a refund especially around Xmas time as that sort of money would come in handy. I was told that it’s usually much faster then that but could take upto 28 days, they also went onto say that the refund had already been processed and sent me their version of a receipt on 8th December. Fast forward to today 8th February as I don’t want bore everyone with the detailed emails back and forth for the last 2 months but I’ve only just had my refund, and that’s only because I went through visa and they have forced Crieff into giving me the money back. How Crieff are issuing receipts for refunds that haven’t happened seems like fraud to me. The amount of emails and phone calls and complaints I have had to make in order to get this money back is just terrible service. Anytime you speak to anyone in customer service it’s always a different person and they never have a clue what you’re talking about. You can only ever speak to somebody in an email As they’re currently not taking any calls due to covid, but they are still taking your money no doubt about that!! Be weary about booking here as I can only imagine the customer service at the hotel is just as poor. We were hoping to rebook for this Christmas instead but now I’ll be taking my money to someone who knows how to deal with customers correctly and don’t lie!! I’ve not had any kind of explanation of apology at the point either. Just a message from the bank to say visa have got the money bank.

Action Glen was amazing! Charlie’s hot chocolates were superb. Noah was extremely patient and very friendly at the air rifle shooting. Jamie was also lovely, and very patient, even allowing my ten year old son to run along behind the segways (at a safe distance) These three staff members really stood out and are a credit to your team. I hope they all enjoy their Christmas! Everything else was a bit of a let down. Children having swimming lessons were allowed to have fun with the extra large floats but paying guests were not allowed to use them. Room 123, not sure how you can call it a suite. No sofa, just two chairs with a small round table, no separate living space. Not sure where four people sit? Although management did bring extra chairs after I requested them. When you walk on the carpet it sounds like you are walking on top of plastic bags, hardly a luxurious spacious suite. No accessible lockers in male changing room. Waiter in the only restaurant that was open permanently had his mask on his chin. Hotel advertised on an updated daily menu on the website salmon and burgers are available but this is not the case. Menu very limited. Nutella at breakfast had mould on it but was advised it was “fat bubbles” ( which it definitely was not) the waitress advised me it was only two weeks out of date and they would still be serving it to guests. I did speak with the manager and write my review while staying at the hotel, so management were aware of the failings. I understand the hotel are adapting to recent changes but the hotel is only at around 10% capacity, so in my opinion staff should be on the ball.

We'd booked a lodge and 2 rooms in the hotel for the festive break earlier this year before the covid pandemic took hold. Every single member of staff we have dealt with has been totally professional and undaunting in their efforts to try and make our break happen. We are truly gutted that despite all their efforts the hotel has had to close its doors again. I don't think any member of staff could have worked harder over the past few months in such challenging circumstances. They had been so professional, friendly and helpful and as a family we wanted to publicly thank them all. Special mention to Kelly who I spoke to on several occasions and who made sure I was kept fully updated at alll times. Thanks guys. Stay safe and healthy and we look forward to seeing you Christmas 2021.

Booked a very last minute family break within our Tier to escape the monotony working from home brings! Booked a lodge and it was very comfy and very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Some buts like the entrance a bit tired due to west and rear but that’s to be expected and deck area extremely slippy (be aware as we saw a member of staff fall) . Our lodge had a spectacular outlook and we looked down on the Xmas lights from the Candy Cane walk and the village beyond! The main hotel building is spectacular with various restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets ! The pool was open via booking system but changing rooms not open so a bit tricky especially trying to manage a toddler and the pool was quite cold. Beauty salon open for limited services . It’s beautifully decorated for Xmas and they have managed to stage a Santa experience for the children which was wonderful and one of the main reasons for our trip. Staff were all efficient and helpful. Lots of outdoor activities going on ...sadly the weather was at its worst so we didn’t partake in many otter than the reindeer experience which was really good! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return soon.
