Make yourself at home near Motherwell!

BEST WESTERN Moorings Hotel provides the magic, near Motherwell! Built in 1891 as the private home for a member of a famous Scottish steel dynasty, our beautiful main building has held its charm and offers a unique, understated and timeless air of refinement to this day. The surroundings are undeniably chic, but the overall ambience remains humble enough to be homely.

A "B" listed building within a local conservation area, BEST WESTERN Moorings Hotel has built on its 19th century roots to meet 21st century needs and provides guests with classic character. We still have some of our original stained glass windows, and our hospitality is traditional and unintrusive.

Colville Park Golf Course

Built originally as a 9 hole course in 1923, the course was refined and lengthened as early as 1925 to the 18 holes you can see today by the renowned golf course designer James Braid. Offering a fair challenge to golfers of all levels the course remains a popular venue for private and Lanarkshire Golf Association events alike. Set within the mature woodland landscape of the former Jerviston Estate, the parkland course offers a nice variety of tree lined and more open holes played over undulating terrain. With the mature landscape and last 5 holes offering stunning views over the Clyde Valley from Tinto to Glasgow Colville Park provides a picturesque setting to play golf and while away the hours.

Located in the Jerviston area of Motherwell, the course is easily accessible being approximately 1 mile from the M74 to the south and a similar distance from the M8 to the north. Part of Colville Park Country Club, the golf club is a family club with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. With its attractive setting and manicured grounds and course, Colville Park is popular not only with its members but also with visitors alike who return frequently throughout the season year after year. Indeed never resting on its laurels the club is constantly trying to improving the course and facilities. If you are interested in seeing what Colville Park has to offer contact the Pro Shop and book your place now. All visitors welcome - individuals and parties alike.
