Reviewed 8 August 2011

We went here on a family weekend in July 2011. The hotel is beautiful and we were lucky enough to get the biggest room in the hotel, which had 4 single beds, 2 travel cots and another double bed in another area. For the 4 of us, this was more than enough room!! Every night there is a disco, which caters to children because they play songs like the birdie song etc. However, more night there was a ceilidh. The kids club was great fun for my kids and they made cakes one day and came out with pictures the next. They also rode on a Shetland pony, which only cost 2 pounds. The massage in the spa was great too. Would definitely go back and would recommend!!

My daugher was married at the Hydro on the 29th July, It was a fabulous day supported by the quality of staff. From the wedding planners Leanne & Stuart, the chef, the waiters who provided great silver service for a lovely wedding breakfast and evening buffet catering for over 100 guests and not forgetting the other Stuart - Miller who also worked tirelesly on our daughter and son-in-law's behalf. They even organised breakfast in a private room the next morning for all guests staying at the hotel. Nothing was too much trouble. on top of this the weather was good!!! A big thankyou to you all.

We booked a chalet in the grounds of the hotel for a short family break. At around £450 for 3 nights it wasn't cheap but we thought we'd get decent accommodation. Not so! It was terrible and the worst accommodation we've stayed in, in over 30 years of holidays! Ripped carpets and sofa, shabby decor, exposed nails sticking up dangerously (we had to ask them to hammer them in) and damaged doors. Did complain at the time and were told nothing could be done as every thing was full. No apologies or consessions. There wasn't even two separate bedrooms as two beds were on a mezzanine. Shame on them for renting this standard of accommodation in which overall is a great resort hotel.

What an awful review Midgemoo. We are horrified to read your comments about how you feel about your stay and although we appreciate that sometimes things do go wrong – as they have done for you – that doesn’t mean we don’t care and definitely doesn’t mean that great service isn’t top of the list for us. We would really appreciate the opportunity to make things right so please do get in touch with us directly.
Other readers may be interested to know that we have a wide range of accommodation available including 3* chalets, 5* self catering and 4* en-suite hotel accommodation so single travelers and groups can holiday here and take advantage of the wide range of resort facilities and leisure activities.

Crief is a great family hotel, with just a couple of drawbacks to watch out for, but with a bit of planning you could have a great break. We are a family of 4 with two young children (5 and 7), and these are the pros and cons of our trip:

A nice grand feel about the hotel, lots of space to roam
Fine choice of dining for both parents and children from the formal to the more relaxed; with a hotel of this size there is always going to be a bit of a production line going on in the dining experience, but they run a pretty slick operation.
The Kids club and childcare are fantastic, we've stayed in a few of the well known family friendly hotels, our children would say this was probably the best one, they loved the kids club and the family entertainment afterwards, this was the big winner for us.
The staff are great, really friendly and helpful
There are plenty of activities to choose from, but the swimming and spa area are functional rather than luxurious, and you have to pay extra to use the spa.
The only real gripe we had was that the standard family rooms are really quite small, they are essentially reasonable sized doubles, converted to a room for four. In the end we moved to a superior room which was much more pleasant

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a bigger rrom
