In the very heart of the hotel, our elegant Ballroom harks back to the glories of the Edwardian era. With twinkling chandeliers, gracious pillars, a full stage and mirrored walls, it’s the kind of place to bring people together in style.
Fun fact: the official hotel opening took place here in 1924 but don’t be fooled – there’s more to this grand old lady than meets the eye. Under her stylish exterior is a full lighting rig, with built-in projection and sound. And if you fancy a ceilidh to make your event go with a swing, the beautifully polished floor is fully sprung. Ideal for larger celebrations, launches and conferences, The Ballroom can comfortably host up to 260 guests for meetings and conferences, 200 for dining and up to 360 for cocktails.
Product launches, large-scale training events, whole company meetings: The Henry Hall has been designed from the ground up for conferences and larger meetings. There is capacity for 300 people theatre-style and up to 450 for cocktails as well as state of the art AV set-up including drop-down screens and projectors. With two entrance foyers checking people into your event is a breeze, while three high windows provide natural light.
Right in the heart of the hotel, one of The Henry Hall’s real benefits is its flexibility. There are two moveable partition walls that can split the space into two or three, which is great if you need breakout rooms or just back of event office space. A truly practical, adaptable space for those bigger groups and events.
The Billiard Room brings the outside inside, thanks to the brilliant natural light that pours in from its bay windows. We love it when guests think of Gleneagles as a home from home, and this traditional room really does evoke that cosy yet luxurious country house feel. The Billiard Room seats 60 for dinner, 40 for cabaret-style seating and 80 for theatre-style, so it’s a great option for lots of different group sizes.

One of Scotland’s most beautiful private dining rooms, this elegant space is reminiscent of a grand drawing room in a traditional country house, and offers private access to the Garden Café Lawn. Overlooking the putting green and the croquet lawn, it has some of the best views in the hotel, and a south-west-facing aspect provides an abundance of natural light.
Luxurious furnishings and charming designs enhance the room’s elegant grandeur, while access to a private staffed bar makes it an inspiring setting for a broad range of events – from an exclusive networking event to an atmospheric candlelit supper for up to 70 guests.
The Assembly Room is a flexible space comprising three separate rooms – The Reading Room, The Writing Room and The Card Room – for parties between 10 – 16, with partition walls that can be opened up to create one larger room accommodating groups of up to 60.
Overlooking The Garden Café lawn, The Assembly Room can also be set up to provide one meeting space with one or two adjoining breakout rooms and is a great option for pre-dinner cocktails.
With echoes of a library or smoking room within a stately Perthshire property, The Broadcasting Room takes its name from an original space within the hotel. The original broadcasting room famously transmitted Scotland’s first ever outside radio broadcast – regarded as a technical miracle at the time.
The new Broadcasting Room provides a traditionally-styled and inspiring setting for boardroom meetings and intimate private dinners for up to 14 people and has direct access to The Pantry.
This relaxed kitchen space is available for visiting groups using The Assembly Room or The Broadcasting Room. Akin to a traditional country-house pantry, with plenty of natural daylight, this unique, laid-back and stylish break-out space provides the perfect atmosphere for guests and delegates to relax and network around the kitchen table.
Also available to book exclusively for evening events, it makes an ideal setting for relaxed drinks receptions, whisky nosing or food tasting sessions.
With views out on to The Garden Café lawn and essential AV equipment, this is the perfect location for board meetings of up to 10 people, for presentations to a small group or for an intimate private dinner.
Revel in the country house feel with The Parlour, a gracious, yet flexible, room in the heart of the hotel. With its traditional double decorative fireplaces and elegant pillars, The Parlour evokes the feel of a country house dining room, so it’s ideally suited to dinners and lunches. Seating 30 people for a sit-down meal and 70 for cocktails, it’s a nice size for those smaller groups that can sometimes feel a little bit lost in a larger space. It’s also a superb option for private check-ins and welcome drinks – we can even arrange for our magnificent golden eagle to be there to greet your guests..
Just a short drive from the hotel and at the heart of our world-class shooting school, The Shooting Lodge makes a brilliant hub for your group’s outdoor adventures. It works perfectly as a location in its own right too, easily holding 200 people for an inside/outside BBQ and 30 for sit-down meals.
Cosy and casual, there’s a real sense of the outdoors with beautiful wooden walls and an exposed stone chimney, while soft fabrics and muted colours add a touch of luxury. Don’t think you need to save your BBQs for the summer though – with a real roaring fire and warm throws we can cope with anything the Scottish winter throws at us.
With panoramic views over the immaculate lawns of Gleneagles to the hills beyond, this elegant, historic room opens out onto a stunning sun terrace, and can host dinners of up to 54 people, or cocktails for 100.
Talk about living history. The estate’s deliveries used to come straight into The Cellars by train – you can still see the original railway bays in this intimate, atmospheric room. Carefully decorated with fascinating archive material from our history, The Cellars are ideal for wine and whisky tastings, intimate dinners, chatty cocktail receptions and canapé receptions, seating 12 comfortably for dining and 20 for receptions and tastings.
Whether you want to have a formal sit-down meal or are after a more casual affair, we can create a customised menu to suit any occasion – but because 17,000 bottles of wine call The Cellars home, we definitely think wine should be at the heart of your event! Why not have a tutored tasting, or open a special vintage – our enthusiastic sommelier would love to help you choose something special from our collection.
A short stroll through our beautiful grounds brings you to The Arena. Opened in May 2015, the state-of-the-art facility has capacity for 2,250 guests across 2,500 square metres. A blank canvas for larger events like product launches, exhibitions, concerts and conferences, it has been carefully designed for quick set-ups and ambitious builds. The Arena is ready to go whenever you’re planning a big event – all you have to bring is your imagination.
