Booked this hotel at the last minute for £80 per night bed & continental breakfast ...I'd read that there were on going renovations but it didn't bother us too much as we wasn't intending staying in the hotel for any length of time. One half of the hotels rooms have been renovated to a high standard, we stayed in a... More

Stopped here in October, whilst its under renovation the room we moved in was fully done and it was smartly designed with a big bathroom. Its stuck between a busy pub and a restaurant and we went to our room at 23:00 and the music was so loud it was pointless trying to sleep. Unless your under 25 and ready... More

Where to start? The hotel was under renovation when I arrived, this wasn't mentioned when booking .I did wonder why I was expected to pay for my stay upfront (as soon as I arrived) before seeing my room. Was told I'd have to walk down the road to another hotel for my first day's breakfast as I was the only... More

Second stay at this hotel. Glad to see it's being refurbished, however am surprised this passes Health and Safety as you have to walk along a corridor with lots of exposed building works! The fire alarm 'accidently' went off before 8am on the Monday morning and then the builders started crashing about. Hardly conducive to a much needed lie in!!... More

My husband and I stayed at Cairn Hotel for the weekend during the Great North Run, we had a room on the second floor. The room was lovely, the en suite shower-room was excellent. Breakfast is continental style when we had both days. A large, flat-screen TV is positioned at the end of the bed, it was perfect. There are... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel over the Great North Run Weekend. When we booked in the staff seemed only half interested in concerns we had over parking. Vehicles double park at the rear of the building as there is only permit parking on the surrounding roads. I was concerned we would be out enjoying the town and some... More

For the price I expected more. It is a good location, the bar is prrtty goid and the rooms are spacious, but the bathroom is grubby, shower comes out as a tricle, staff are un-interested. Advertise many services that are infact not available. I booked on booking.com which said there would be full english but there was none. Try somewhere... More
