Spotlight On: Strathaven Hotel

Strathaven Hotel is currently undergoing some exciting developments.

The spectacular country house has upgraded its restaurant, bar and event spaces, which are ideal for corporate away days and conferences.

More than half of the bedrooms have also been revamped, with the other half due to be refurbished shortly.

Owner Hans Rissmann gives VenuesLanarkshire the full details:


How long have you worked at the venue?  

 We took over the hotel at the end of January 2017.


What types of events is the venue perfect for?

 We can accommodate all different types of events from small family celebrations to extravagant corporate functions.

Our stylish private dining room can also be booked for parties of up to 16 people and the recently refurbished ballroom is large enough for 200 people.


What are the wow factors?

 The hotel looks amazing following the renovations.

The grandeur of the traditional Georgian building is perfectly balanced against the contemporary design of the interiors, creating a timeless and elegant style. 

Following the revamp, many of the bedrooms now have walk-in-showers and a four poster bed.   

Strathaven is blessed with great local produce, and we are working with many local farms to make sure our menus are delicious, fresh and varied. The bar area also offers a bespoke wine list and an innovative cocktail list.


Pitch your venue in one sentence

 Simple things carried out excellently, in beautiful settings.


Are there any plans for the future, e.g. investment, refurbishment etc?

 The remaining bedrooms will soon be refurbished to match the new rooms.


One fun fact about the hotel which people probably don’t know

 It has been suggested that the hotel has a ghost, but it must shy, as we are yet to meet!


Strathaven Hotel’s restaurant is open seven days a week from 7am till 9.30pm offering breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, light bites and dinner.

 The hotel is available for corporate bookings, offering a LCD projector and screen, wifi, PA system and air conditioning in its meeting rooms. Enquire about the hotel here.
