Now in its third year, the Prestige Hotel Awards celebrates outstanding achievements in the Scottish hotel industry and more than 400 businesses from across the country attended the ceremony on 17 March.
Gleddoch, which was renovated in 2017 to upgrade its facilities and create a more contemporary and stylish aesthetic, was once the home of the shipping baron, Sir William Lithgow, and sits in over 360 acres of countryside. The grand rooms of the original house now serve as two luxury suites and six modern, junior suites, all beautifully designed and well-equipped. Many of the bedrooms also have incredible views overlooking the River Clyde.
Speaking on the award win, Richard Johal, Director at Gleddoch, said: “We are thrilled to have won this award as we feel it really cements our place in the Scottish hotel industry since the refurbishment. Many of the country’s best-known hotels were nominated for awards and we are so delighted to have been included amongst them.
“We have a great team in place at Gleddoch across all departments, and they’ve worked extremely hard over the last two years to refresh our offering. This award recognises that all that work has really paid off and I’d like to thank everyone for their commitment and continued efforts.”
Gleddoch comprises 75 ensuite bedrooms; three event spaces with capacity to host up to 200 guests; the elegant Dram Bar; the VISTA restaurant with stunning views; a Championship, 18-hole golf course and accompanying ‘Nineteenth’ bar; and the jewel in it crown: the Imperia Spa. The spa provides a range of luxury treatments using products by Elemis and the Scottish brand ishga, from the Isle of Lewis, and its 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.
