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.
