Statement of Interest

The Guardbridge Hotel is a good example of an 18th century classical building characterised by its Roman Doric doorpiece and symmetrical principal elevation with steeply pitched roof. The building sits adjacent to Old Guardbridge over the River Leven (see separate listing) contributing to the group interest and wider riverside setting.
