This was our 3rd time staying at the Gleneagle Hotel. As usual it was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. There is always something for everyone on at the hotel. We were attending an INDO event and were lucky enough to be there when Audi were exhibiting their new range of cars. We also got a cooking demonstration from Rachel Allen and there was also a rally on...So plenty to keep the kids occupied.The family room had additional bedroom with bunks and a sitting room with TV. Went down a treat as the kids got to watch what they wanted as did I. :-) It was also situated to the rear of the hotel and noise was at its minimum.
Our only disappointment was that the kids were unable to use the pool without a parent entering the water with them. Apparently this is a new rule by health and safety. As i don't swim they were not allowed go in alone as they were under 16, even though they are both good swimmers. The Manager Martin explained to me that it was not them that enforced this rule but health and safety. It was just disappointing for the boys and it was not stated on booking or in the hotel welcome book.
Other that that everything was outstanding as always. Looking forward to our next visit already.
