I have just returned home after spending the weekend at Cartland Bridge, where we celebrated my sister's wedding. I cannot praise this venue enough. From the moment we all arrived on Friday Alan, Kim and the rest of the team made us feel like nothing we needed was too much trouble. They all went over and above what you could...

We were here for a large function, tea/coffee and sandwiches, sausage rolls, a cake, standard Scottish purvey. The staff were pleasant and efficient, coped well with the unexpectedly large turnout (it was a funeral). Sausage rolls - fine, hot, cakes - a good if lumpen selection. But the sandwiches!! British rail would have been proud. Very dried-up, thick 'doorsteps'. I...

In the 2 areas of the bar, all the tables were set for diners, including one rather large table decorated for a birthday party. We moved...

I very recently attended a function here. The hotel is an attractive old building set in a nice location but the quality of food served at the function was unbelievably poor. I realise its not possible to serve 80 people the same quality as restaurant food but this didn't come anywhere near close. The starter was 'house pate' but there...

Where to begin? At the beginning of course. We had a family home flood at Christmas time and the upshot was we had to move out to allow massive repair work to take place. We moved in to the Cartland Bridge in early January and have got nothing but praise for all the staff. Alan Kim Elaina Steven Thomas and...

The location of this hotel should be an area of outstanding beauty, I attended a wedding here in April and I was in a "small" double room which was very comfortable and had everything you would expect in a larger hotel. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much bother for them, the food was excellent....

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. BEST WESTERN Cartland Bridge - Large enough to cope - Small enough to care. ... more   less
