We booked in for the weekend after Valentines night on a sunday night special. Gleneagles is always a delight, the hotel, staff and food are absolutely fantastic.
It so happened to be an English school holiday which led to the hotel being absolutely jam packed full of kids and families. It was so busy we couldnt get into the pool at one point as it was at capacity. This wasnt really a big problem but I know some would not be happy about the normally quiet and reserved Gleneagles being a massive Creche. Dinner in the Strathearn was the usual oppulance and excellence thats expected so the kids must have ate elsewhere.
The hotel was so busy that our waiting staff from dinner were on a breakfast and one of them explained that they were expecting 550 covers!
Worth checking if you are going for a quiet and peaceful break. Gleneagles itself is still excellent and possibly the only true 5 star hotel in Scotland.
