I am a very hard to please person and had my wedding reception at the Cartland bridge hotel in august 2014. I must say though that the venue and staff were first class and could do no more for us especially manager Alan Todd and staff member Kim. Food was excellent and stay over in room 109 very comfortable indeed.... More

They had a function that evening but the bar meal was adequate and enjoyable. In spite of... More

I stayed here as a base to attend the Commonwealth Games. It was very good value for money and was a lovely quiet place to stay. My hotel room was on the small side, but very comfortable with a lovely view. Bathroom was of a decent standard. Bed was very comfortable. Could do with updating the TV's though. I only... More

My husband and I were really looking forward to dining here, as 30 years ago we were married here. However the meal was not hotel standard. My husband had prawn cocktail for a starter. It was served on a side plate and the sauce was obviously from a squeezy bottle. There was no bread and butter For the main I... More

The dining room had become smaller and moved into where the bar is now situated which was ok. Ordered our food, both having the Sunday roast -... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A stone's throw away from the Royal Burgh of Lanark, located in the Clyde Valley stands Best Western Cartland Bridge Hotel. Completed in the late 1800's the hotel is the finest example of Sir John James Burnett's Baronial style of Scottish architecture and is a Grade A listed building. An hour's drive from Glasgow or Edinburgh, set in 19 acres of woodland, this 3 star hotel is virtually unchanged from its days as a splendid family mansion. Now the hotel serves as an excellent venue for business meetings, conferences, weddings and social events, each catered within a varied range of suites. Facilities accommodate gatherings for two or 250 guests, with ample free parking. Nearby attractions:-Falls of Clyde, Royal Burgh of Lanark, Roslyn Chapel (noted in the 'Da Vinci Code'), Lanark Loch, Clyde Valley Tourist Route, Tinto Hill, The Glenmuir Outlet.
