If you are looking for great accommodation, food and attentive service, no other hotel in East Kilbride comes even close to this. Forger about the so called "boutique" hotels nearby. They come at a very high price. This is the jewel in East Kilbride's crown! Highly recommended!

The Bruce Hotel is situated near the bus station and shopping centre. It has been recently refurbished and the rooms are well furnished with comfortable beds. The food was delicious and the staff at the hotel are very friendly. We have stayed at The Bruce Hotel twice and not been disappointed.
