There are not many reviews regarding solo travellers in single rooms at the Gleneagles so I feel it appropriate to write this after a recent visit.
This hotel is well managed and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. I asked for early check-in and received an email to say the room would be ready as requested. This was efficient.
My room (No 1) was very clean and could not fault this aspect. The room was, however, very small. I felt very cramped and found it hard to relax. I would suggest the room was about 9' x 12' with a shower/toilet and of course a bed fitted into this space.
Despite having a top window open upon arrival it was quite stuffy and I could not get any air flow throughout my stay. A good tip would be to get a proper fan that could circulate the air better. It was especially stuffy (almost tropical) after using the shower.
The room is at the back of the hotel and unfortunately has views onto surrounding properties so another unfortunate situation. Perhaps other single rooms are better. Not really convinced I received value in this instance for the near £50 charge.
