The five-star Gleneagles Hotel has enjoyed an upturn in bookings from the corporate and leisure markets.
The luxury resort saw its turnover increase as room volumes rose by eight per cent, and the average room rate was unchanged compared to the previous year, in the 12 months to 30 June, 2011.
David Kemp, Finance Director said: “Growth occurred in both corporate and leisure markets, and we have found that businesses have begun to again recognise the importance of getting together for meetings, and of developing relationships with suppliers and customers.”
The hotel has also increased its headcount – to 858 – ahead of hosting the Ryder Cup in September 2014 on its PGA Centenary Course, which has also had major changes overseen by Jack Nicklaus.
Mr Kemp added: “We remain confident that business levels will continue to grow as we build towards 2014.”
The hotel’s Dormy Clubhouse bar and grill recently reopened after a six-month, £2.9 million refurbishment. And Gleneagles has introduced ESPA Life, a new concept in wellness spa facilities.
