After having visited their sister hotel in New Cumnock, we decided to try this hotel as it was nearer home and we were very pleased. I think this hotel did not have a great rating a few years ago, but that is certainly not the case now as everything was very good. We did not stay in the hotel but we had a lovely meal there and enjoyed it so much that we are booking it again!

Its is always nice to hear that some of our guests have been to one or more of our hotels, and are equally please that you have enjoyed your stay in the Shawlands Park Hotel.

We do understand that this hotel may have had a bad name in previous years, however we plan on putting the Shawlands park hotel back in the map. No only are we happy that you enjoyed your stay this time but are all so happy that you have decided to come back and see us again.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Had my wedding at this hotel in Feb 2014 and everything was outstanding and the food was first class and the rooms are out of this world. All the guest were impressed with the meal at the wedding and most people had a meal the night before then wedding and raved about it.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of hotel have excellent views over the Clyde valley

Really plush surroundings and good food. Warm welcome at reception, friendly dining room staff everything spotlessly clean, airy room, was in a suite with 2 balconied windows, 2 LCD tellies, one large tilt and turn window. The settings felt roomy the bed was a superking and nice and firm just the right amount of blankets and towels. The bathroom door had ordinary glass as well as frosted panels, meaning if you are not that acquainted you really have to go sit in the lounge area to give your room mate privacy uh oh! The showerhead was a big stream of water not a nice spray, maybe need to service it, the cubicle was nice though, plenty of light above and room to move. I tried the bath it was angular shaped, and had low water pressure took ages to fill . Inadvertently ever so slightly flooded the back of the bath behind taps (all tiled so ok mopped up with towel!) because the head of a hose/shower spray was leaking when the taps were on which I had no idea about. oops. The bath was not easy to rise from and exit out of, and it had no handles and wasn't that comfy am afraid. The bathroom was tiled nicely . A lot of room to ourselves and nice views. Peaceful sleep and didnt hear any residents so well insulated and modern and trendy. The food was utterly amazing and well presented. Could not fault the stay in any way.

Room Tip: book a suite and spoil yourself

Dear Guest

We are thrilled that you had such a fantastic experience at the Shawlands Park Hotel. It is of great importance to us that our guests receive a warm welcome every time, so we are glad that you received such welcome. Upon hearing you issues with the bathroom, we will certainly look into the pressure of the shower and the bath, however we are pleased to hear that the over all condition of the room was to your standards. Here at the RAD Hotel Group, we take pride in the presentation and the taste of the food that is on offer, so it gives us great pleasure that you enjoyed it that much to label it "utterly amazing".

We hope that you decide to come visit us again.

Warm Regards

We had friends up from Manchester and wanted to meet up. We remembered the Shawlands Hotel and agreed to see them there as it was just off the M74. The restaurant was closed for refurbishment but we were shown to a nice table in the foyer. The menu looked great and the waiter quickly took our order. To be honest the meal took some time to arrive - but - it was worth the wait, beautifully presented and a full plate of hot food. The two course special(which I had)was great value and the others all thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We will be back!!
Just a point on Trip Advisor ratings, the rating for service hides a fact i.e. the waiter was good but the meal took a long time to arrive so I can only mark service average.

Dear Guest,

Its always good to hear that the Shawlands Park Hotel is on the forefront of someones mind when they are meeting friends. We are happy to hear that you all had a good dinner with us. Our head chef sets his standards high when it comes to presentation and taste. It is unfortunate to hear that you had to wait some time to receive your meal. We can assure you that this is not as standard as we strive to keep standards of service high. We are glad to hear that your waiter looked after you and also please to hear that you will be back. As you know, we are undergoing refurbishments in the restaurant area and we can't wait so show it off.

We look forward to looking after you in the future.


Regards

Went in a group of 30 for works christmas night out . Very busy with Neil Diamond /Kenny Rogers tribute act.
Food was extremely good for such an event, warm and served quickly. Staff friendly and helpfull,
Drink prices a bit steep. Other than that great night.
