Gleneagles is a world class resort hotel within its own estate dating from the early 1920’s. In addition to the 2014 Ryder Cup, the Gleneagles Hotel has hosted major inter-governmental conferences such as G8 (politicians usually find the best venues a country has!). Gleneagles doesn’t really require us to expand much.
Many of Scotland’s golf courses share a sense sanctuary and peace, but with remoteness comes a more limited choice of things to do in an evening. Most of them have responded by making this very sense of tranquility the essential signature of their offer. The Gleneagles Hotel is one of the best examples and has duly created a ‘resort spa’ to allow you to relax.
The resort spa
We normally submit Tripadvisor reviews in support of our hotel offers. For reasons of consistency, we do so again, but in truth, the Gleneagles Hotel is one example where reputation alone is sufficient.
The hotel has an air of class rather than showy ostentation about it
No appraisal of Gleneagles would be complete with referencing the food. Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used for what is undoubtedly one of Scotland’s culinary high temples. The hotel as quite a few restaurant and dining areas to choose from but the Michelin 2-star rated crown jewel is ‘Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles’. Be warned however, this will need booking in advance
Salmon is the signature dish at Andrew Fairlie, but you really can’t go wrong with any of your choices
To a large extent it’s inland position affords it the greater potential, but recreational activities available include; shooting (complete with a gundog school), an equestrian school, fishing, falconry, off-road driving, wildlife photography, as well as the health and beauty treatments and the Spa. In addition the estate also has extensive grounds for the guest who simply wants to be on their own and spend time on its forest tracks

Gleneagles Hotel – Single Supplements
Even though we have to impose some supplementary surcharges in line with passing costs on, we endeavour to adopt a sincere position that doesn’t seek to penalise such travellers and exploit your situation, occasionally absorbing some of the cost ourselves. Despite our commitment to fair play, there is still ultimately only two bottom-line options:
1: Pay a single traveller supplement
2: If you indicate a willingness, we can attempt to pair you in a twin room
It is worth mentioning that a single person will rarely be allowed to play a round of golf solo, and you will almost certainly be required to join a group. This can sometimes work to your advantage though, as you’ll be more flexible.
Most hotels operate a cancellation premium of some description. The amount charged however varies between chains, and even different hotels within the same chain, it also fluctuates with little sense of predictability. In addition, the terms and conditions also differ with 3 days to 24 hours being typical cut-off points beyond which cover is invalidated. Group bookings can find they’re subjected to 28 days given that a hotelier takes a bigger risk accepting such a reservation to a mass cancellation. We try to reserve piecemeal as a result
Our policy is to recover what we can for you, but we are restricted in line with what the hotel offers. It’s always helpful to check the individual hotels T&C’s. We advise you if booking by credit card, to check that you don’t hold an added service item that came when you signed up. This might cover you.
