We only stayed one night on our way up to the Highlands of Scotland, but can report that the Shawlands Park Hotel is a terrific place to stay and exceptionally good value.

The hotel is not far from the motorway but does not get any of the noise and is in a nice peaceful rural location. Check in was very friendly and we were led to a really nicely furnished room. The rooms are a standard format, but very comfortable - the bed and pillows were excellent. The room was exceptionally clean as was the bathroom. For the quality the pricing is an absolute bargain.

We ate dinner in the restaurant, and the food was very good. Wine selection is rather basic, and there is no real ale - not even in bottles. Perhaps get some local ales in - Scotland is producing some good microbrew pale ales - you might be surprised at the take up.

Overall a very good stay - and when we next pass through we will stay there again.

firstly I want to thank Neil and Steven. we had our wedding here . we booked an overnight before the wedding and Neil upgraded us to a suite. it was amazing and the staff did everything to help us. on our special day our little boy was sick. initially they didn't want to alarm me but I found out. everyone went out their way to help us make our wedding day flow as smoothly as possible under the circumstances. The grounds for a wedding are amazing and if like us it rains on your special day then indoors are stunning also. especially the honeymoon suite where a lot of our pictures were taken. afterwards we received a letter to invite us back for a meal and bottle of wine complimentary which to us was going above and beyond. we decided to make a night of it and stay over in one of their other suites and it was beautiful. when I arrived I got the warmest of welcomes. its like a home from homes with friends included who take the time to talk to you despite how busy they may be. The meal we had was amazing and every time we've eaten here its been of such a high standard (trying something different every time). on a whole I could not fault any part of the service we've received in all our times here and we will definitely not be strangers. thanks again Tim, Neil, Steven and all the staff at Shawlands Park Hotel. x

Room Tip: all the suites are stunning and they have done up some of their standard rooms to a deluxe and super...

That is exactly how we felt when we saw the sign for this hotel. It was getting very late when we were on our way to Edinburgh having taken the minor picturesque country road running a risk of not finding anywhere to stay the night. Two small guesthouse that we passed earlier well fully booked. And then a little lit sign and hidden beyond one's view quite a remarkable new hotel with top facilities and a good price to match. 80 GBP for a double room with good buffet breakfast. It was some forty miles from our destination, Edinburgh so this was very convenient too. Highly recommended.

Thanks to all staff for making our first visit to your hotel such a pleasure. Room 36 was lovely - spotlessly clean (whole hotel spotless thanks to housekeeping staff) with fabulously comfortable bed and chairs. Only downside was it overlooks the car park to the rear of the hotel with no view other than a lonely wind turbine.
Meal unfortunately wasn't of such a good quality although Lindsey immediately reported this to Neil who did apologise. Wee note to the chef - if you are cooking chicken breast stuffed, you need to keep the skin on to stop the outside becoming rubbery. Pudding though was lovely as was breakfast.
This hotel is great for visiting places such as Chaterhault Park and New Lanark. Despite the disappointing meal, I would probably revisit this hotel and would recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a front facing room as you get a lovely view of the countryside.

What a fantastic day we had celebrating our wedding here. A massive thanks to Tim and Neil for making our day so special. Tim was there for me every step of the way.
The meal was absolutely outstanding and the service was exceptional. The amount of friends and family that have commented about the quality of the meal and how great it was is overwhelming and we had over 140 people for our meal. Fantastic.
We had the entire hotel booked for our wedding and check in was so smooth and quick and rooms superb.
Whether you stay an overnight, have a meal or have your wedding here you are in for a real treat.
As we start our new life together as Mr & Mrs i just wanted to thank you all for making our special day.

Cant recommend the shawlands park hotel high enough whether its for your own wedding day an overnight stay or just a quite drink and a meal. We had our full wedding there and it was beautiful the day passed without an problems and massive thanks to Tim and steven for that. Rooms are lovely inside and spotless and outside there is a pond with a bridge which is ideal for some personal wedding pictures
