Gleddoch, the hotel, golf and spa resort in Scotland, has recently unveiled a major transformation following a multi-million pound refurbishment bringing contemporary flair to the new hotel. Utilising the existing space, including the grand rooms of the original house, the revamped 75-bedroom hotel and spa now includes two new suites with views overlooking the River Clyde, plus new junior suites and bedrooms and event rooms. There is also a newly-built Imperia spa.
The spa provides a range of luxury treatments using products by Elemis and the Scottish brand ishga, from the Isle of Lewis. The spa’s facilities include a 17m, heated indoor swimming pool, eight tranquil treatment rooms, a sauna and steam room, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, a fully equipped gym, and a relaxation room.
Speaking on the refurbishment, Richard Johal, director at Gleddoch, said: “We saw a great opportunity to breathe new life into the hotel and golf course. Former guests will recognise the hotel they loved, but it’s been brought up to scratch and now has all of the amenities expected of a top four-star establishment. We are looking forward to welcoming everyone as Gleddoch begins this new phase of life.” The golf course has also had its own facelift, with course improvements, a new golf reception with pro shop and dedicated ‘The Nineteenth’ bar. A par 72, the 18-hole course will be returned to its heyday over the next few months, with a new, experienced golf manager who has ambitious plans to regenerate the hillside course. The hotel is also home to a Vista Restaurant and Dram bar. Gleddoch also has three event spaces with the capacity to host up to 200 guests. Gleddoch House Hotel in Scotland was purchased in June 2016 by the Johal family of Nottingham, and the acquisition marked the second for the family business owners.
Richard and brother Harjeet Johal also own St James’ Hotel in Nottingham.
