    Gleneagles Hotel
    Auchterarder
    #1 in Best Hotels in Scottish Highlands
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3596 reviewsTripAdvisor (3596)
    Free WiFi

    Nestled approximately 40 miles northwest of Edinburgh on 850 acres of Scotland's lush countryside, Gleneagles Hotel has welcomed guests since 1924. Dedicated to protecting its surroundings without skimping on amenities, the resort features 20 protected natural habitats alongside three championship golf courses, an ESPA-affiliated spa, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a family pool and an adults-only pool, an equestrian school and 14 specialty shops. Inside the property's main building, guests will find 232 guest rooms and suites with traditional Scottish tartan decor – which some describe as "beautiful" but others say is worn and in need of updating – and modern conveniences like free Wi-Fi, minifridges and televisions with DVD players. For additional square footage, upgrade to one of the hotel's Family Rooms (where there's space for pull-out sofas or extra beds) or suites (which feature separate sitting rooms). All room rates cover daily breakfast in The Strathearn restaurant and on-site activities like fitness classes, lawn croquet, stable tours and games and art projects in the teens and kids clubs. When you've worked up an appetite, recent guests recommend grabbing a bite at the Mediterranean-inspired Deseo or savoring gourmet French-Scottish fusion fare at the two Michelin-starred Andrew Fairlie restaurant. Part of The Leading Hotels of the World, the property participates in the Leaders Club loyalty program.
