It sounds a bit strange now, but to the Victorians, swimming in freezing spring water was just what the doctor ordered. So it goes that in 1868, under the management of physician Thomas H. Meikle, weopened our doors as The Strathearn Hydropathic Establishment Company. Our management team practically grew up in the hospitality business (in fact, a couple of them practically grew up in this very hotel). So they know what makes the difference between a great leisure break and a crummy one.
