Just returned from a great stay at the Cairn Hotel. We really enjoyed our 2 nights nights there, despite the poor weather. The staff are great, from reception to bar staff, and the waiters at breakfast they are all polite and attentive. The bar, refreshments, and meal prices were reasonable, and mainly in line with the bars and restaurants around...

It is nice to stay in a hotel that has plenty of character. There are too many hotels these days that are full of plastic and chrome with like for like menus and no heart. You could be staying on the moon as they are all the same. This is a big old hotel with very large public areas, tiled...

Got a good night away at £55 with bed & breakfast. Hotel was lovely and warm, and very clean. Very pleasant and polite staff. Breakfast was nice, and you could help yourself to whatever you wanted. Good sized car park.

Stayed for one night with breakfast and it was lovely. It's undergoing refurbishment at the moment, but we were lucky enough to get a 'new' room! The room was very smart and clean, although on the smaller side. The bed was comfortable and it had a decent hospitality tray - I did run out of milk and sugar, but they...

We have reported them to the fire service. I have never stayed in a hotel where I have felt unsafe; now I have. Apparently their procedures are different after 11pm. I...

I was last here in 2015, then I had a lovely big room, with a secret door wardrobe and scaffolding to the window's. The hotel is still undergoing refurbishment ( you can't rush these things with old buildings, they have to be sympathetically done) but this did not spoil my stay. This time I had a room at the front...

The room was ok. The en-suite needed attention but not enough to complain as we only there for a few days. The staff were friendly and efficient especially the breakfast staff who kept us supplied with a very good breakfast. Free parking on site
