What a loss ! How sad Gleneagles hotel is closing down to make way for a block of apartments . This iconic Hotel that we all associate with Faulty Towers series on TV is actually closing down. Well goodbye Faulty Towers

I initially chose this hotel because of the Best Western name (being a Yank), but this hotel was interesting to say the least. The hotel also claims to be the inspiration for Fawlty Towers. I had heard that hotel rooms in the UK were small, but I found this place quite suitable for my business and leisure purposes. My room... More

We have just returned from a four day Christmas break at The Hotel Gleneagles. From start to finish, the experience was awesome. The food was superb ( my bathroom scales are telling me that I ate too much of it! ). The entertainment was very good, but the thing which made our stay special was the service. All of the... More

Myself and 5 friends booked a Christmas meal at Gleneagles and chose the £31 ,gold menu. We found the meal to be very mediocre and worth nowhere near that .. It was a very basic 3 course meal (no coffees included ) which would of cost no more than £20 - £25 at any other hotel. The service wasn't much... More

The hotel's interior downstairs is stunning, the bar and restaurant both very welcoming. The food was lovely both at dinner and breakfast. The staff were friendly and attentive. The view from the room was stunning. The room was clean, spacious and had everything you need in it.

Booked a tinsel & turkey break at Gleneagles but as we were the only couple booked received a phone call a week prior to visit asking if we would like to cancel due to lack of bookings or just have bed, breakfast & evening meal at a reduced rate.
