This hotel has a spectacular entrance hall and a wonderful panelled staircase, which fortunately not spoilt by unsightly fire doors. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with good quality fittings and well insulated to ensure a undisturbed nights sleep. The staff are helpful and friendly. Recomended

Stayed for three nights and found the experience very acceptable, very helpful staff who even prepared breakfast at 04:30 so we could eat before we left for our flight. Good base for exploring the area if that's your thing.

Thank you for taking the time to post your recent review. I was also disappointed to hear your comments. We pre warn all of our brides that unfortunately our conservatory does in fact leak when it rains, should a bride and groom decide to use the conservatory regardless we have to support their wishes.

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.
