History of Hamilton

Hamilton was originally known as Cadzow or Cadyou, pronounced kadyu. During the Wars of Scottish Independence the Hamilton family initially supported the English and Walter fitz Gilbert (the head of the Hamilton family) was governor of Bothwell Castle on behalf of the English. However, he later changed loyalty to Robert the Bruce, following the Battle of Bannockburn, and ceded Bothwell to him. For this act, he was rewarded with a portion of land which had been forfeited by the Comyns at Dalserf and later the Barony and lands of Cadzow, which in time would become the town of Hamilton.

Suffered a bit of early morning (0530) traffic noise on front facing room, but I live in country which obviously highlights it. Overall experience was still good, great value, and I would definitely use again.

(Review Of Hamilton Residence, (University of the West of Scotland), Hamilton)

Great basic accommodation. Everything you need in your room plus access to shared toilets / showers and kitchen. Definitely value for money if travelling on a budget. Good access to Strathclyde Country Park and Hamilton West station.
