Writing this review many weeks after eating here but the experience was the same never the less! Decided to try this place again after eating here a few years ago and enjoying it. 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

I stayed here while up in Lanark on business. I picked it out from Tripadvisor and their own website, as it looked relatively good, but you never can tell. However, I was pleasantly surprised at everything. The staff were helpful and polite, as well as being just attentive enough to be comfortable. My room was spacious and immaculately clean. The...

Stayed one night. Good value, £65 inc breakfast. Receptionist and bar staff very friendly and helpful. Warm, clean room. Not top end, but very acceptable. Lovely old building in parkland. May as well eat at the hotel as there is very little of any quality in Lanark, which is a short drive - too far to walk.

Nice hotel in an older building of character. Loved the central staircase and large Bedrooms. The restaurant is only used for breakfast with evening meals served in the bar, which is a shame. Starters were good, but we were disappointed with the main courses. Handy location for a visit to the. New Lanark Heritage centre.

Just home after having our wedding at cartland bridge hotel and I must say I am flabbergasted. The venue, scenery, quality and service were outstanding and in particular the general manager, Alan Todd, who catered to our every need, regardless of how difficult this made his job. I couldn't have asked for a better day. The hotel was immaculate and... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day carvery with the family. Food was fresh and there was plenty of choice, very reasonably priced in our opinion. The staff were warm and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble, It was very busy but that didn't impact on service or quality. Glad we chose the Cartland, We will be back again.

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.
