Best Western Premier Collection

Explore Hotel

Country house charm in Lanark.

The Best Western Cartland Bridge Hotel enjoys a peaceful countryside location in Clyde Valley. Surrounded by 19 acres of private woodland, bound by a trout river which the hotel has fishing rights on. In addition to the great outdoors and a wide variety of tree species from around the world brought here by original owners in the 1890's you'll also enjoy the great indoors. Our hotel is the finest example of Sir John James Burnett Baronial Scottish Architecture!

The perfect place to spend quality time with someone special or relax after a conference, the hotel offers true tranquillity. You'll be ideally located for getting out and about across Scotland too, with excellent motorway links nearby.

Thank you for your feedback. We have 2 single step ramps for our entrance doors and we have commissioned a 3 step ramp for our internal main hall which is taking longer than expected to manufacture. We have been able to assist wheelchair users by lifting the chair up the 3 internal steps previously. I will provide my team with re training to prevent further situations. Please accept my apologies for our short comings. Kind regards General Manager
