3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
The loud hideous music from the entertainment that took over the whole hotel was out of tune, too loud , in your face crass ! It would have been better to stay at butlins ! The ambience of the restuarant was totally ruined and people were all talking about it ! We left the restuarant it was overpowering ad only one word to describe it as ridiculous ! When we left the so called entertainer was singing out of tune with his mic turned on high so he could impact the whole hotel his audience were two hours g children under the age of 5 and their grandmother watching them ! This ruined our holiday ! As when we spoke to the staff in tiffin asking them how they coped they just said it was awful but no one will do anything about it ! Please sort this it’s destroying your reputation as ufsir on paying guests ! I spoke to the duty manager who agreed with all my comments ! Come in general manager / owners stop this awful intrusion of peoples dining experience and bring class back to what is a beautiful hotel ! Agadoo and the birdy song do not go down well at the Crieff hydro !

Liked: Property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Staff & service
Check in was diabolical. Room wasn’t ready until 4:40pm when we were told check in was 3pm. Staff were rude and unhelpful. Lots of dissatisfied guests sitting in the lobby waiting for their rooms to be ready. Booking for absolutely everything is an issue. No appropriate times left for breakfast or swimming. The hotel has obviously kept this measure for their own convenience instead of returning to normal once COVID measures have been lifted.
