The Gleneagles Hotel has unveiled plans for a multi-million pound refurbishment across its property.

The extensive refurbishment programme represents a significant investment from its new owner, Ennismore, and is aimed to better showcase both the historic building and it's setting.

Ennismore founder and CEO, Sharan Pasricha, said: "The Gleneagles Hotel is an incredible property and beloved brand. It is known the world over for its golf, but with 850 acres of beautiful Scottish countryside, there is the potential to do so much more with the hotel.

“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.

“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.”

Bedrooms will be enhanced to create a 'warm, country estate feel' with new fabrics and furniture. Spaces will be created throughout the public areas of the hotel, including the introduction of a new bar in the Dormy Clubhouse and the refurbishment of the hotel’s main bar.

Designs will pay homage to the hotel’s heritage and create a welcoming and luxurious environment that is designed to feel more like home than a hotel.

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.”
