“Quality relaxation close to nature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Initially unsure of our destination, we were re-energised when we saw the CLC logo, as Club Lacosta usually delivers on quality!
The signage is not very encouraging, and at a point, we were asking ourselves if we had taken a wrong turn somewhere......
It was however worth the rigmarole as the grounds, staff and accommodation were just great. The kids loved the chicken house and my son had a favourite grouse! Talking of 'grouse' pls do go on the 'Famous grouse tour' especially if you are a spirit drinker. You'd be surprised how much history is tucked away in a bottle of a single malt!
Another trip we enjoyed was the 'Drummond safari', especially if you're with children.
The great 'gleaneagles hotel' is less than a mile away so you might see some golfing celebrity stroll past!!

One huge negative is the absence of wifi in your lodge so you need to get to reception for connection. Two, I wondered how families managed in the winter as the whole heating was electrical and CLC only pays the first £50 !!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with proximal parking. Eg. 601

Thank you for your review. I was pleased to see that your children enjoyed themselves on the safari trip and meeting our wildlife residents! We generally find that the electricity tariff covers usage by guests and we are currently exploring how to extend our wifi coverage. Our countryside location does mean that there are some issues that need to be dealt with and we are also anticipating that a BT upgrade to the Auchterarder telephone exchange will help!

Just stayed one night and regret that we did not make provision in our tour around Scotland to stay longer will return. The hotel accommodation was excellent, clean and comfortable. All the staff were very friendly, well trained and nothing was too much for them

We stayed here whilst golfing at Gleneagles and were so happy we chose this resort. The staff were friendly, the accommodation better than we could have imagined. After golf we would retreat back to the bar and enjoy our recap of the days golf. This is a place I would love to bring my family as a base if I was visiting the area. We visited in April but would love at some time to bring the family here in summer.

The resort has excellent lodges which are spacious and well equipped. The immediate area is very peaceful, but with great places to visit within an hour. The leisure facilities are great too. Just what you need following a full day out sightseeing.

Stayed four nights with family (five of us in total) in a three bedroom lodge on the estate and would recommend the accommodation without question. The lodges are built in the grounds around the main hotel but none are too far away. We stayed in a three bedroom lodge. Bedrooms are all downstairs, with two en suite and one with a shower room outside it. The upstairs has a large open plan sitting/dining/kitchen area which is very well appointed.
Very nice touch was the 'welcome pack' of eggs, orange juice and bread/butter/jam etc. in the fridge on arrival.
The pool in the estate is excellent and was never too busy, despite the very warm weather and was well used by our family each day.

The estate is easily found. From the south, take the slip road for Gleneagles and turn right after leaving the main road, and the hotel is about a mile down the road. It is well signposted from both directions when you leave the main road.

Auchterarder, Perth & Stirling are all within easy reach by road from the estate.

Would certainly recommend a stay at the estate and look forward to a return visit in the future.

Have just returned from a 3 night stay with my family to celebrate my 60th birthday. We stayed in one of the 3 bedroom lodges and were very impressed with how spacious it was and the high quality of the accommodation - very comfy beds and pillows! We had a meal in the restaurant on the Saturday night and it was excellent. The staff were all helpful and very friendly. The setting is just perfect - so peaceful and the grounds are very well kept. We will definitely be back!!
