Couples Weekend in Gleneagles 5 Star Luxury Resort

We are back after spending 2 nights at Gleneagles Hotel Resort in Perthshire and it was amazing. As new parents we desperately needed a bit of alone time and this weekend was perfect. ( Click here to check out my post on some of the dumbest arguments we have had since becoming parents). When my partner told me that he had a deal for us to spend 2 nights at Gleneagles, I wasn’t really fussed. All I knew was that Gleneagles was a golfing resort which didn’t really appeal to me at all. It wasn’t until we arrived that my jaw hit the ground.

To say this place is lovely is an understatement. It is very traditionally old Scottish and the large grounds are spectacular. Not only is this hotel known for its golf course, but it also houses some of the country’s finest chefs such as Andrew Fairlie as well as a number of activities suited for everyone.

When you arrive at the Hotel you are greeted with bagpipes making you really soak in the Scottish culture. The decor is traditional chic keeping it classy and cosy at the same time.

Lee had booked himself in to play golf all morning, so I took the opportunity to explore the hotel. I was impressed to find a little shopping arcade with quaint little boutiques to buy souvenirs, clothes and jewellery as well as a nail bar! As I worked my way further into the hotel, it felt like Gleneagles was a little village in itself.

There was a little brasserie with a small indoor terrace and a little french café where you could sit and have a coffee and croissant. Further on you had 2 indoor pools, one reserved for adults only with steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Then you had a small but lovely heated outdoor pool as well as a fitness club.Weekend in Gleneagles

After exploring I spent the morning at the gym and then tucked into the best breakfast buffet I have ever seen. Full Scottish Breakfast as well as a Pancake stand, Cheese and cold meat stand, Fruit Stand, and Cereal and baked goods stand. If wasn’t getting married in 9 weeks I would have spent the whole morning eating!

In the Afternoon I met up with Lee to explore the grounds and have a look at this world famous golf course and views. I got a few quick snaps before it started to bucket down with rain. So we headed inside to chill at the pool.

Gleneagles houses 5 different restaurants and 3 different bars. We were lucky enough to get a reservation at the Andrew Fairlie 2 Michelin Star restaurant to try their 10 course degustation menu. The entire staff were so lovely and really made you feel welcome. Unlike other posh establishments that sometimes make you feel like you are worthless. The staff at Andrew Fairly were very warm and informative. The food presentation was like artwork, it felt a shame to eat it but I am glad we did. It was absolutely delicious!

On the Sunday we filled our bellies (again) at the breakfast buffet and then took a long walk around the grounds before taking off back home to join our little cherub.

I would definitely recommend staying at the Gleneagles hotel if you are looking for a Luxurious Romantic Getaway with your partner or with your family. There are heaps of child friendly activities to do and we saw lots of families enjoying the resort with their kids. Beware, it can get expensive and make sure you check your bill when you leave. We were overcharged £300! Thankfully we checked before paying.
