We arrived to find the place in the middle of a makeover in anticipation of some media attention (shan't say more, sworn... More

We had dinner at The Townhead Hotel on a Sunday afternoon in August 2016. This hotel and restaurant is just off the M74 at J17 so very handy for anyone travelling North or south. The service was excellent and we could not have felt more welcome. The bar area and restaurant are spotlessly clean and we felt very comfortable. For... More

Amazing food using local produce, beautifully decorated room and attentive staff. Even the background music was good! The bill at the end was also a nice surprise, - great value for the quality of the food! Our group contained a vegetarian, and a mixture of adventurous and more traditional tastes and everyone was delighted with their meal. The location is... More

Very pleasant hotel - all the staff extremely welcoming and friendly. The room was well furnished, bed superbly comfy, shower very hot and lots of fluffy white towels. Breakfast was great - and the evening menu looked very good too, but after 7 hours on the M6 we weren't hungry enough to stay awake to sample it. Definitely highly recommend... More
