Help!

We will be heading north in the half term holidays. It covers our wedding aniversary and dh has sugested that we stop for a day or two in a hotel that has a baby sitting facility, not listening our kids are a bit too old, with a good resturent in the hotel. I'd like a pool for us all to enjoy. Any ideas? I have had a look at the Peebles Hydro, but would like some other to think about.

Help me Mumsnetters, where can we go?

Crieff Hydro has a couple of pools, babysitting and kids clubs during the day. There's also one up near Aviemore that folk have told me about - the name escapes me for now, but if you want the name post or CAT me hhmb.

hmb, Peebles hydro is good for children (pool etc) although quite large and a bit impersonal IYKWIM. If you're interested in the Peebles area, we have also stayed at Castle Venlaw hotel www.venlaw.co.uk which was more "Scottish" and has family rooms but obviously no pool. Someone else has recommended Armathwaite Hall - lovely, lovely hotel but expensive, we (dh and I) stayed here in March for one night and the room was £200. Also, I wouldn't recommend staying here midweek, as it is used as a conference hotel so was full of suits. HTH
