License to thrill at Crieff Hydro’s new events space

The Melville launch event

FOLLOWING a substantial £700,000 refurbishment, Crieff Hydro Resort has unveiled its new state-of-the-art meetings and events space, the Melville.

Its launch was marked with a special Bond themed event to showcase the versatile space.

Formerly a large sports arena, the Melville is the perfect space for award ceremonies, glitzy balls and conferences. It can comfortably accommodate dinners for 400 guests or up to 600 conference delegates.  

It is a flexible event space that has enough flexibility for any type of corporate conference and celebration with its own bar, catering area, cloakroom facilities and private entrance. It also has three outdoor access points plus drive in access for AV rigging.

Crieff Hydro Resort welcomed guests to the space for a spectacular Bond themed evening with ‘S’ (owner Stephen Leckie) kicking off proceedings with a welcome.

Attendees had the chance to try out some of the fantastic team building activities available at the hotel, followed by a black tie dinner including 1881 Gin martinis – shaken, not stirred and Casino Royale themed entertainment.

Stephen Leckie, Chairman and CEO of Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to unveil this fantastic space with a superb Bond themed bash.

“We have invested a significant amount to transform the Melville into a high-tech space that can accommodate a wide variety of events. Our launch party was the perfect opportunity to demonstrate what it can do.

“We have started to see a resurgence in enquiries for meetings, dinners and exhibitions, therefore this is a great time to add this amazing room to our menu of options, with a space to suit any meeting size.”
