We were down in Harrogate for my Birthday, so went onto Groupon to see if there were any good deals in and around Harrogate town centre. So, we fond this one from The Cairn Hotel. The deal really looked excellent, with the following... Mini afternoon tea - (More than enough for us two) Prosecco on arrival for evening meal A...

This hotel is beautiful. We had a really good time here. We went to the bar and a lovely young lady who said she had only been here for a week served us. She was very special. A lovely person. The room was great, it had everything you would want. The meal in the evening was outstanding. Next morning we...

The hotel is ideal for accessing Harrogate and has reasonable facilities. We found that the hotel is mainly catered for coach parties. The food was of a poor standard and did not meet our expectations. We will not be returning this hotel.

Let me start by saying this was one of the best weekend away trips my partner and I have ever taken. We used a Groupon voucher which we got the nights stay, a 3 course meal, afternoon tea and breakfast for £75! When we were reading the other reviews we weren't expecting much but it honestly exceeded our expectations so...

This hotel is one of Victorian hotels that sprung up in elegant Harrogate in the late nineteenth centuries.A 7 minute or so work to the centre. No parking problems unlike some of the town centre ones. The public rooms and staircases are spacious and generally elegant even if the elegance has faded a little here and there. Similarly with the...

We visited the Cairn Hotel in April as i had bought my wife a surprise trip on Groupon for her Birthday which included a 3 course meal, breakfast and a glass of chapagne each.

Used hotel for 1 night for 12 golfers. Excellent location within a short walking distance of Harrogate centre. Loads of free parking. Very Good breakfast. Pleasant, helpful staff especially Erica at reception. Great base for a golf trip. Only booked here when Ascot House let us down. Glad they did (although not at the time)! Plan to book The Cairn...

Had a fabulous night being entertained by a great Take That tribute called Take at That. The guys were really good and got the audience involved and were so approachable and I would definitely see them again. The meal was lovely and the staff were very helpful too.

Easy to find and close to HIC where we were attending the good food show. Check in was smooth - staff were great. We had booked a superior double room for one night. The services of a porter were offered but with one bag we didn't think it necessary. However. We took the lift to the third floor and fortunately...

I'm joking of course but this former magnificent hotel is in need of major investment. In the premises certainly, in staff recruitment and management training, definitely. Bank holiday Monday and breakfast stops at 9:30! Yes, ok, technically it's a Monday but what a ridiculous rule. It's like that here though, reminded me of a 1950's film set. The world weary...
