Gleneagles Hotel gets multi-million pound refurbishment
The Gleneagles Hotel is currently undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment programme by new owners Ennismore, that will see improvements and upgrades made throughout the property.
Ennismore founder and CEO, Sharan Pasricha comments, “We really want to showcase the unrivalled range of facilities – the glorious playground of country pursuits and activities – we offer on the estate. We’re approaching the refurbishment with bold and creative decisions while respecting the hotel’s history and building on its remarkable heritage.
He continued, “It’s an organic progression – evolution, not revolution – and will ensure the iconic Gleneagles brand remains synonymous with luxury, and the hotel maintains its position among the leading hotels of the world.”
Some of the country’s most celebrated designers – including David Collins Studio, Timorous Beasties, Macaulay Sinclair and Goddard Littlefair have been involved in creating designs and spaces with a contemporary feel for Gleneagles.
The refurbishment includes the bedrooms and the public areas of the hotel, particularly the main bar and there will be a new bar at the Dormy Clubhouse too. Say the company, “Designs for these public spaces will pay homage to the hotel’s heritage and create a welcoming and luxurious environment that feels more akin to a home or private club than a hotel.”
Sharan Pasricha added, “When Gleneagles first opened its doors in 1924, it was dubbed as the ‘Palace in the Glens’ and our aim is to surpass these glory days. We look forward to introducing our guests to the new spaces and continuing to provide them with a five-star experience in a setting that is effortlessly stylish and luxurious.”
