20,000 professional travel advisors from 50 countries voted for the winner. One of his most highly anticipated awards at the awards ceremony, Best Hotel of the Year, went to Scotland’s Gleneagles.
The award recognizes iconic hotels that embody luxury hospitality excellence and serve as beacons of positive change in their communities, especially in developing markets.
Virtuoso describes the hotel in a release: Spa, and robust social calendar. This iconic facility is also dedicated to making a difference in its community through partnerships with organizations like Social Bite and Anchor House. ”
Gleneagles opened in 1924. The 5-star luxury hotel offers 205 beautiful bedrooms and 28 luxurious suites in the rolling Scottish hills.
“We are thrilled to receive the Virtuoso Award, which recognizes the world’s best travel experiences,” said Conor O’Leary, president of the Gleneagles family. Not only does it recognize our commitment, it’s what drives us to remain one of the best hotels in the world: a family-friendly activity program, an amazing playground with country music, a newly renovated spa, fine dining, and more for all our guests. We promise to make your stay a memorable one.”
Known as one of the greatest names in golf, it has three championship golf courses and one nine-hole course. Gleneagles recently hosted the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup.
Ten restaurants and bars offer everything from bar snacks and brasserie classics to family fare and fine dining.
