Multi-million pound refurbishment for Gleneagles

Ennismore founder and CEO Sharan Pasricha

Ennismore, the new owners of the Gleneagles Hotel, have announced a multi-million pound refurbishment of the “Palace In The Glens.”

Ennismore said it will work with some of the country’s best designers — including David Collins Studio, Timorous Beasties, Macaulay Sinclair and Goddard Littlefair — “to create designs and spaces that reflect Gleneagles’ distinctly Scottish identity, but with a contemporary feel. ”

“The bedrooms will be enhanced with beautiful detailing, fabrics and craftsmanship to create a warm country estate feel,” said Ennismore.

“Spaces where guests can mingle, relax and better enjoy the views of the Perthshire countryside will be created throughout the public areas of the hotel, including the introduction of a new bar in the Dormy Clubhouse and the stunning refurbishment of the hotel’s main bar.

“Designs for these public spaces will pay homage to the hotel’s heritage and create a welcoming and luxurious environment that feels more akin to a home or private club than a hotel.”

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.”

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.”
