Gleneagles hotel information
The superb Gleneagles hotel is set in 850 acres of land at the foot of the Scottish Highlands, also known as ‘the palace in the glens’. This world class golf resort offers guests an unrivalled choice of sports and leisure facilities, in addition to the superfluous golf on-site. Gleneagles has 232 luxurious guest bedrooms and suites, each offering the perfect retreat in a tranquil setting. The historic venue retains its traditional ambience, and a ratio of more than one staff member to every guest ensures an unprecedented level of service.
From the two Michelin star chef, Andrew Fairlie, to the Mediterranean themed Deseo Restaurant, Gleneagles Scotland offers a wealth of food and beverage facilities. A selection of restaurants and bars ensure that guests will always be spoilt for choice, with the quality and service of food always kept to the highest standards. Deseo is the hotel’s on-site Mediterranean restaurant, and a great place to try out a various range of foods – from tapas and pizzas to fresh seafood.
The Dormy Clubhouse Bar & Grill is the perfect setting to look out onto the stunning golf course. Located next to the Kings and Queens 18th holes, the picturesque panoramic views set the tone to soak in the atmosphere, enjoy some famous malt whisky and enjoy some modern bar food classics. With two Rosettes to its name, The Strathearn is a much more formal dining experience and serves classical French/Scottish in an atmosphere that encourages you to dress for the occasion.
Indoors at 'The Club', Gleneagles Resort offers state of the art fitness equipment, swimming pools, spa, Turkish baths and a sauna as well as health and beauty treatments. The spa at Gleneagles by Espa opened on 1st March 2008 at a cost of £8 million, and more than lives up to its name and price tag.
