Since opening its doors in June 1924, Gleneagles has been one of the UK’s most iconic hotels and sporting estates. Set beneath the Ochil Hills in the heart of Perthshire, Scotland, it has remained the go-to destination for the most discerning of travellers for nearly a century. 

Capturing the very best of quintessential British style across its sweeping 850-acre estate, Gleneagles know that tradition and comfort are a combination worthy of guests travelling the world, time and time again to enjoy. Here’s a glimpse into why it has won the esteemed ‘Best Hotel’ of 2022 award.

Beginning its life in the glamorous age of travel, when guests arrived in great style at Gleneagles’ very own train station, the estate epitomises the natural beauty for which Scotland is famed. With its glorious playground of country pursuits and activities, the hotel has long established its position in the social calendar. 

Enlisting the skills and expertise of some of the UK’s most acclaimed designers including David Collins Studio, Timorous Beasties, Macaulay Sinclair, Goddard Littlefair and Ennismore’s own in-house design studio, the aim has been to create designs and spaces that celebrate the rich, glamorous heritage and beautiful architecture which the hotel is known for.

With 233 luxury bedrooms and suites, the hotel’s accommodation has been further enhanced by Goddard Littlefair over recent years, with beautiful detailing, fabrics and craftsmanship combining to create a warm country estate. The rooms and suites celebrate Gleneagles’ storied past, evoking its history through specially curated furnishings, antiques and art. Every detail throughout each of the rooms was carefully thought through and designed to reflect the warmth of Scottish hospitality.
