People have said some rather kind things about their Gleneagles event. Here is just a small selection.
"I just wanted to share my thanks and appreciation for a truly memorable stay. We have an expression in the Oil Industry: "Flawless". I think that says it all about your wonderful Hotel.
"Your staff are simply amazing – Ronnie ‘Luggage Master’ and both Alan and Willie at your shooting school are of the calibre of consummate professionals any business craves."
Geoff, Projects Manager
"You cannot convey the sense of history or the beauty of Gleneagles until you have been there for yourself. The passion and dedication of every member of staff is clear to see from the moment you arrive until the time you depart and they are all an absolute credit to your organisation.
"I cannot single out one favourite thing from the whole experience as it was all equally fantastic, from the dinner and pipers to the introduction to all your sporting activities and me getting on my first ever horse, bless him Pugsley!"
Ruth Craig, Muckle LLP, January 2014
"I’d like to say a great big thank you for looking after me so well at the weekend. I can’t stop thinking about it. It was the most enjoyable few days I’ve had in a very long time, and every aspect from start to finish was better than perfection.
"The whole thing had the "wow" factor, and you all went that extra mile to ensure that we, as a group, had the most pleasurable time, whether it was a dining experience or during any of the events, your attention to detail did not go unnoticed. I can honestly say it is something I will never, ever forget.
"It was also very obvious during my stay - and wonderfully refreshing - to come across staff (and that’s right across the board) who so obviously love the job they’re doing and are motivated to ensure the guests have the best possible experience."
Susan, Oilfield Services Company, January 2014
“We would like to thank you all very much for helping to ensure that our recent event was first-class and went off without any problems. All who attended have complimented the magnificent hotel and the general hospitality extended by everyone they encountered. The warm and friendly ambiance of the hotel and its staff was exceptional.
Fiona and Laura, our Event Managers, were a pleasure to work with, and Stephen in Private Dining was a massive support and ensured everything went to plan. I cannot fault anything - your attention to detail and professionalism is to be congratulated. I sincerely hope that there will be another opportunity to return in the foreseeable future - the tag on the welcome gifts I left in the rooms of my colleagues said ‘Haste ye back’, and I hope we will!”
Lorraine, Ingenico event organiser, December 2013
"Being a five-star resort, you expect that Gleneagles will pride itself on giving five-star service, and this was certainly the case for our event.
"Please pass on our thanks to Phil and his team at the Falconry School. It was great to see the Tawny Eagle and the Falcon fly, and the team loved the hands-on with the Harris Hawks. Jim and the team at The Shooting School also did a great job looking after us and having some fun."
"Having stayed at the hotel before, we had no doubt that the event would be run very well, but it was the little touches that made our stay all the more special. Our team is already looking forward to coming back next year."
Oil company, November 2013
"We had an AMAZING time – the best board meeting I’ve ever been to! We even had an xmas tree in our room. I would have to say that Andrew Fairlie’s was simply stunning – up there as one of the best meals ever. What an experience."
