We arrived later than expected as one road was not where the satnav thought it was because it had been removed by the workers on the M8 new road scheme but we got there in the end and were made very welcome by Sandy and Cathy. The cottage is very clean and tidy and the beds very comfortable and we...

Thank you for the kind remarks. We are glad you had a good sleep. Thankfully the roadworks are progressing which will further enhance our excellent position within the central Scotland road network.

Lovely property in the small town of Chapelhall. Nice clean rooms, piping hot water. The owners encourage you to eat too much for breakfast. Thanks to Sandy and Cathy for looking after me so well. I will be back.

Very welcoming. Sandy and Cathy were very nice and the breakfast was superb. Comfortable and clean. Would love to stay again. Had lots of fun at The Railway Inn next door. Great music with karaoke on a Friday night. Had off street parking which is great.

Attempt number 4 at writing an honest review that is neither too long for anyone to read, or too descriptively wishy washy for anyone to believe... In a sentence. Staying at Shawlee Cottage is the accommodation equivalent of buying your meat direct from the local butchers. You aren't going to get a monotone and tiresome looking checkout supervisor. You're going...

Thank you for you'r in depth thoughts, which pretty well sums up the benefits of staying in a small establishment. We are delighted to know that young people out there still appreciate service

Sandy & Cathy welcomed us for our second visit at Shawlee with the warmth and friendliness we remembered. They are brilliant. We enjoy their tales and breakfasts, and very comfortable bed, and helpfulness. I do some Family History when in Coatbridge/Airdrie but my husband equally enjoys the area and the people, and the Summerlee Museum of Scottish Industrial Life. We...

Stayed here for four nights from 25-29th June. Myself and my husband were visiting family nearby so this was the perfect base for us. The hosts Sandy and Cathy are very welcoming, they make you feel very comfortable, it was like staying with old friends, and Cathy makes a fantastic breakfast! The cottage is very well situated for exploring the...

Had a lovely 3 night stay Monday-Wednesday this week, with hosts Sandy & Cathy. Made to feel very welcome and they are lovely friendly people. My room was fine for my stay, just the size of the hand basin was too small, but this was the only negative. Thanks again Sandy and Cathy.

Stopped here whilst working in Glasgow and Edinburgh as its convenient for both and has the added benefit of a private car park. The hosts Sandy and Cathy are very welcoming and the rooms are spotlessly clean and comfortable and have the added benefit of a good fast WIFI connection.

Really, this beautiful well-maintained cottage is all about its hosts. Sandy and Cathy are two of the most gracious, intelligent and warm individuals we've ever met. Rooms are spotless, breakfasts are full and made to order(Sandy makes a mean pot of coffee), and parking our car was easy. We used Shawlee as a base to travel the length and breadth...
