After a long day at work arrived at 20:30 to find they'd stopped serving food, but luckily it was quiz night and there were plenty of sandwiches leftover which I was made welcome to help myself to. Draught Guiness is the canned variety, rather cheeky considering the price. Rooms adequate, walls a bit thin, could here people snoring in the... More

I am sorry our kitchen was closed when you arrived. We do state on our web site that we serve food all day from noon until 8.30pm except on a Sunday when last orders are 7.30pm Your Guinness was not a Supermarket can, as you implied. We serve "Surgers" as the turnover for draught Guinness is not sufficient to ensure... More

We recently stayed at the Robertson Arms for two nights and would definitely stay there again. Lovely comfortable and clean room. Excellent breakfast. No complaints. Carnwath very quiet and not much going on but great place to have a stopover.

After a long drive my partner and I stopped here for a drink and dinner. The staff were quite abrupt at the bar, asking cheekily if we had a reservation without even saying hello. because we hadn't, we were only allowed drinks, and were told to sit in a different room. When we left the staff did not say goodbye... More

I am sorry we were unable to give you a table for dining on your recent visit. The staff have to ask if a reservation has been made as our tables are usually fully booked at the weekends. You would have been shown into our new and very comfortable lounge and offered drinks, however the tables in the "Cranny" lounge... More

Stayed one night. My room was more like a corridor than a room. Long and narrow with just enough room for a bed. However, it had everything anyone could need and was clean and tidy - ironing board and iron, vanity kits, repair kits etc. - you name it, it was probably there. Food and service was excellent. No complaints

Just had an excellent weekend break at this hotel in Carnwath in South Lanarkshire, Very Tidy and the Staff are really Friendly. Food was excellent, new Coffee Lounge area is very good with nice comfortable Sofas. Can't really fault it.

Stayed here for 1 night, guess all the large rooms were taken as both my husband and I and another couple we met had the smallest rooms ever seen, (even french ski lodges were bigger than this), personally feel £80 is far too much to charge for a room of this size. That said the staff were lovely and the... More

We found this hotel by pure luck as we had to cancel our previous accommodation. We were very lucky. The décor of our rooms was lovely and we had everything we needed. We ate in the restaurant and the food was delicious. Our hosts were very helpful and friendly.

We had a one night stopover, and although conveniently located, not in the prettiest of locations arriving on a dull day in March. The Robertson Arms just got better and better. The service was excellent, the room was delightful, clean and extremely comfortable; and supper was great and breakfast fantastic. Well done for all your efforts.
