Crieff Hydro invests in conference facilities

Scottish hotel Crieff Hydro has boosted its conference facilities with a £260,000 investment, expanding its meeting rooms and upgrading wi-fi technology.

The hotel’s two new meeting rooms have been designed as ergonomic spaces, combining traditional and modern features in the overall design. An investment of £60,000 has been made to provide wi-fi facilities throughout the property, enabling superfast broadband and efficient plug and play technology.  

Crieff Hydro, which has 212 rooms, is set in a 900-acre estate in the Perthshire countryside and provides a range of on-site activities, including off-road driving and quad bike courses, horse riding, archery, laser quest, climbing, off-road Segway tours, a Victorian spa and swimming pool and leisure club.  

The hotel has twelve meeting and conference spaces that can cater for events from two to 500, including the state of the art Melville Hall with capacity for up to 500; the venue’s highest space, the Tower Room which can take 8 people boardroom-style; the Loggia sun room for receptions up to eighty people. ­­­­­­
