Gleneagles Townhouse officially opened its doors in Edinburgh, exclusively to members and hotel guests, marking the first venture beyond the Perthshire hills for The Gleneagles Hotel in its almost 100-year history. Over the last five years, Ennismore Design Studio has painstakingly restored the listed building, creating 33 unique rooms, some of which overlook the bustling St Andrew Square. At the heart of this notable building lies The Spence—an airy, social space offering modern style brasserie-dining, from Bloody Mary breakfasts all the way through to dynamic dinners.
Led by Head Chef Jonny Wright, who returns to his native Scotland with over 16 years’ experience, his own enthusiasm for Scotland’s natural larder—the old Scots word from which The Spence takes its name—is what will make the offering really stand out. Within The Spence, a central bar sits underneath an extraordinary glass-domed ceiling serving up a seasonally rotating, locally inspired list of cocktails, local whiskies, beers, spirits, and wine curated by bar manager, Stefanie Anderson.
Immerse yourself in the glamour of a bygone age in The Strathearn, a classical Franco-Scottish fine dining restaurant. Expect theatre from the traditional gueridon service, heat from the flambe, rhythm from the music, and exceptional dishes, at one of the best restaurants in Scotland.
Down in the bank’s former vault, Townhouse resident guests and members have access to The Strong Rooms, a dedicated training, treatments and therapies space. With curated experiences for holistic wellness and innovative technologies including a cryotherapy chamber and infrared sauna, alongside the gym and wellness studios, the offering aims to enhance individual wellness journeys through movement, restoration, and recovery.
Gleneagles’ reputation as a sporting paradise has flourished for over a century, and golf sits at its very heart. The three championship golf courses in Perthshire, Scotland celebrate the history and evolution of golf itself—from The King’s Course, the Braid-designed masterpiece and ‘inland links’ classic, and The Queen’s Course, one of the finest par-68 heathland golf courses in the UK, to the contemporary Nicklaus-designed PGA Centenary Course. These 54 holes offer a world-class golfing experience to a broad spectrum of enthusiasts, from novices through to the finest players in the world.
The Members’ Club features two exclusive spaces, the Note Burning Room which is designed for breakfast meetings, brunches and long, leisurely lunches, and co-working space The Telling Rooms, perfect for relaxed remote working. Evenings at Townhouse promise to be lively, social and a place for friends and colleagues to gather at the end of the working day. The roof terrace bar Lamplighters, open exclusively to members and hotel guests, offers impressive views of the city’s medieval Old Town to the left and New Town to the right—the perfect spot to watch the sun set and see the city lights sparkle.
