Stayed for a weekend, old building with antique style furniture, bit creaky but very comfortable. Room clean, sizeable and with all conveniences. Service excellent, staff friendly and efficient. We only had breakfast there, which was a good choice of fruit, cereal, full English etc.

Expected it to be very dated so wasn't surprised. Too busy to cope and left a new member of staff to serve at the bar on her first day. Couldn't work the cash register or card machine and could find no help. Not her fault, bad management. Woken up by people trying to get in our room on two occasions.... More

I visited the hotel on 28th August with friends to watch bootleg Barlows tribute to Gary Barlow. I'm a big fan and have been on all take that's tours and Gary's solo tours. The show was brilliant non stop entertainment. Too many glasses of wine tho lol. Would recommend and would like to go again.

Great night with the hubby watching Gary. Fabulous tribute. I've been on all the tours. Was like watching the real deal. Superb Would recommend a tribute night here. Bar prices are reasonable so you can't grumble. Must say well done to the DJ as well.

Very Friendly and helpful staff. Good Breakfast. Lovely entrance and clean rooms. Bit dated and needing some refurbishment but good value for money. Excellent location for shops and beautiful Valley Gardens.

Had Groupon deal so didn't have over high expectations, but was pleasantly surprised with the room, which they had upgraded to a mini-suite, and by the friendly efficiency of the staff. The carvery evening meal was okay, neither better nor worse than expected, and the cooked breakfast was also quite good. The location of the hotel is excellent, an easy... More

Booked using a Groupon Voucher - as I have done with many hotels. Normally I am pleasantly surprised at the service, treatment, and facilities - not in this case at all....nothing even reached the basic expectation. We had to wait until 4pm to check into the room as it was not ready - the room and the hotel generally is... More

Due to their promotions of dance events Etc. The Cairn seems to keep relativly busy most of the time, unlike some of the other large old hotels. A reasonable buffet breakfast, reasonable rooms,free wi-fi (on the ground floor), plenty of car parking and a short walk to town all make this a very recommendable hotel.
