Strathearn Herald - - NEWS - Rachel Clark

A top Strat­hearn ho­tel, spa and re­sort has been re­flect­ing on a bumper year after win­ning a host of prestigious awards.

The Gle­nea­gles Ho­tel near Auchter­arder has won a host of travel awards over the course of 2017, in a range of cat­e­gories in­clud­ing golf and spa des­ti­na­tions.

Most re­cently, the lux­ury five-star re­sort won the 2017 National Ge­o­graphic Trav­eller Reader’s Award for Do­mes­tic Bliss UK Ho­tel, for the ho­tel which sat apart from the rest for Bri­tish ser­vice, de­sign and spirit.

The Strath re­sort saw off stiff com­pe­ti­tion from Chew­ton Glen in Hamp­shire and The Pig on the Beach in Dorset to claim the ac­co­lade.

National Ge­o­graphic T r av e l l e r p r a i s e d Gle­nea­gles Ho­tel for pro­vid­ing “stand­alone com­fort and class” and for be­ing “an ex­em­plary coun­try house ho­tel that de­liv­ers “old fash­ioned el­e­gance, as well as im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice, qual­ity food and ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties”.

Conor O’Leary, Gle­nea­gles’ gen­eral man­ager, said: “We’re de­lighted to win this award which is the lat­est in a string of prestigious awards for the ho­tel in 2017.

“It’s an ac­co­lade which re­flects the sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment we’ve made across the es­tate over the last 20 months, as well as our com­mit­ment to de­liv­er­ing an out­stand­ing all-round guest ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We’d like to thank all the readers of National Ge­o­graphic who voted for us.”

On top of the lat­est award, Gle­nea­gles is also cel­e­brat­ing a num­ber of golf­ing ac­co­lades for its world-class golf cour­ses.

The ho­tel was crowned the num­ber one golf re­sort in Bri­tain and Ire­land by Golf World Mag­a­zine, and the best golf re­sort in the world for the sixth con­sec­u­tive year at the Ul­tra­travel awards in 2017.

To­day’s Golfer Mag­a­zine awarded the Strat­hearn in­sti­tu­tion the best ho­tel/ re­sort in Scot­land prize for the fourth year in a row.

The ho­tel then scored a hat-trick of gongs at the Scot­tish Golf Tourism Awards, com­ing away with the best golf ex­pe­ri­ence, best pro shop and best large ho­tel ti­tles.

Aside from the golf awards, the ho­tel’s spa saw Gle­nea­gles win­ning best UK spa at the 2017 Good Spa Guide Awards.

The ho­tel was also named in the top 20 ho­tels in the UK at the Conde Nast Trav­eller 2017 Readers’ Travel Awards.

And the food on offer at the Auchter­arder ho­tel did not go un­no­ticed, with An­drew Fair­lie suc­cess­fully re­tain­ing Scot­land’s only two Miche­lin star restau­rant in­side the ho­tel.
