The town of Pitlochry grew in the Victorian era when the great north railway line was built running from Edinburgh and Glasgow to Inverness in the north. The Victorians came to the town to take in the clean air and waters of the region and it became a popular spa destination for wealthy city dwellers. Train travel made the journey much easier than previously and so hotels were constructed to meet the demand. The Pitlochry Hydro Hotel was one of the first establishments to offer room and board and of course the wonderful water from Ben-y-Vrackie. It was a dry hotel, in terms of alcohol, and originally named The Pitlochry Hydropathic.
Times have changed and Pitlochry now offers new age spas and boundless fitness activity options. What hasn't changed is the wonderul environment in which you will find such a facility - clean air, beautiful scenery and an opportunity to relax.
We had a few days in a one-bed lodge, idea was to 'get away from it all'. Enough privacy to do just that, and the hot tub certainly did it's job to sit back, relax, enjoy the sun and the stunning views around Pitlochry. Andy was very helpful, as was Jane. Everything you are likely to need was there for you, clean and tidy too. Have told a few friends of our experience...all very positive. Many thanks - hope to return. Tripadvisor 3
I was here for a three night stay and it was beautiful, it was really clean, it had beautiful features such as the fire and everything you needed was there for you to use. You were given clear instructions on how to use everything provided. The layout of the cabin was perfect and it was cosy for our stay. The lodges are situated in a beautiful area which we thoroughly enjoyed exploring, the owner was very welcoming and was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I would definitely return to these lodges as we had an amazing weekend! Munchkin265 Trip Advisor review
