Explore Hotel

A magnificent 18th Century country house.

The Best Western Strathaven Hotel is set in 3 acres of Strathaven countryside, with East Kilbride just 7 miles away. Built in 1797 in the style of the famous Robert Adam Junior, the hotel boasts original period features, making the inside just as beautiful as the surrounding grounds!Family run, the Best Western Strathaven Hotel prides itself on giving guests a warm welcome. And with wonderful points of interest dotted around this picturesque part of Scotland.

During your time with us, you'll be able to immerse yourself in country living. The Scottish Museum of Rural Life is just one of the highlights that awaits. If you do decide to return to city life for a day, Glasgow is (surprisingly) just a short drive away.

Lunchtime ripoff

Owner Response
StrathavenHotel, Owner at BEST WESTERN Strathaven Hotel, responded to this review
We are deeply sorry to hear you were unhappy with the service at the BEST WESTERN Strathaven Hotel. Your concerns will be addressed accordingly. After reviewing your bill it would appear that you were, in fact, charged £6.00 for your Becks lager and half pint of soda and lime. Please accept our apologies for not confirming the price of the supplement for the smoked salmon in your salad, although, as it is not on the menu it was unfamiliar to the waiting staff. We do, however, firmly believe that a further £1.50 is a realistic reflection of the difference of cost between smoked salmon and chicken. We can only hope you will reconsider a return visit to our hotel.
