This hotel is located in UNESCO world heritage site New Lanark, a cotton mill from the beginning of the industrial revolution which is not just an industrial monument but also the place where Robert Owen tried to create a more just society.
To be honest we did not expect too much but we had a very enjoyable day here.
First of all we walked to the falls of Clyde, a place of real natural beauty. On the way we were able to observe some peregrines raising their youngs. Kudo's for the volunteers who keep an eye on them!
After this we visited the different museums that have been put in place here, giving a good picture of the lives of the people here and the way such a factory works. The way Owen is being revered is somewhat evangelical but the man certainly deserves credit for what he tried to do.
We also enjoyed the overall setting of New Lanark, in a pretty green valley.
The hotel is located in one of the old mills. Our room was superb, very spacious and comfortable.
Staff were friendly and we especially appreciated the fact that it was possible to have bar meals deliverd to your room without an extra charge.
Breakfast was very good too.
