Gleneagles has unveiled a new meetings and events space to mark the five-star resort’s next stage of investment.
The Scottish luxury hotel, which was acquired by Hoxton hotel owner private investment group Ennismore in 2015, has launched Ochil House, a collection of exclusive-use spaces to add to the property’s offering.
Inspired by original private members clubs, the new space pays homage to the ‘inventors, dreamers, pioneers and partiers who helped shape Scottish history’.
The house measures 380 sq metres and comprises six rooms, all named after original rooms in the hotel, including The Card Room, The Reading Room, The Writing Room and The Broadcasting Room.
The design team behind Ochil House, Ennismore Design Studio, sourced British and French antiques to blend a country house feel with a modern look.
The team also created a range of ‘inventor blue prints’ and illustrations which decorate the walls of Ochil House and honour some great Scottish inventions and ideas, including the bicycle and gin & tonic.
The idea behind the new space was to inspire, rouse ideas and stimulate conversation – encouraging guests to look around, explore and discuss, rather than sit at a table in a blank conference room.
