My partner and I stayed at The Cairn on a Friday and Saturday night. Our room, on the third floor, was lovely. I requested a room with a view and we had a lovely view over Harrogate. The room was quiet and we both slept really well as the bed was so comfy. The shower was great. Everything was clean.... More

Short break at The Cairn. Room comfortable but could do with a bit of re-furb to bring into line with other Hotels we have visited in the area. Otherwise staff could not have been more helpful, food ok. Another plus in this hotel's favour is the free use of a spacious car park. Other hotels make a charge for parking.... More

Nicely located for Harrogate centre, downhill going into Harrogate with bit of a climb on the way back to the hotel Plenty of car parking. Entrance to the hotel is nice, staff friendly. We were on the 3rd floor, it was very quiet but the corridors were very narrow and smelt very bad (damp) as there was no ventilation. The... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay with us and for your lovely comment regarding our friendly staff. Although breakfast is served for 2 hours you can imagine it is very difficult if every guest comes down for breakfast at the same time which does happen more on a weekend than midweek but... More

Just got back from a good weekend at the Cairn Hotel in Harrogate. The hotel was only a brief stroll from the shopping centre. Plenty of car parking in the hotel grounds. Hotel was traditionally furnished and being renovated whilst we were there. The rooms were large and warm with an adequate en suite. The ballroom was large and well... More

We booked for one night through a booking agent as they had a special offer for dinner b&b, we had 3 rooms all on the 3rd floor, one a superior double, the rooms were clean but dated and required maintenance, holes in the walls, cracks in the ceiling. The corridors smelt of a mixture of cabbage and poo. The evening... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to write a review regarding your stay. I am so sorry to read on tripadvisor that you did not enjoy your break with us and that we weren't to your taste.

Two of us stayed here while attending a conference at HIC, which is a 10 minute saunter away. It's also only a few minutes walk from the town centre. The hotel is very spacious and has some character. The staff were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was excellent, a good choice and well cooked. We ate one bar meal... More

Stayed a few nights in November 2014. Large comfortable room,warm and clean. Very handy for Harrogate - just a short stroll into town. Staff friendly and efficient. Food was fine. Very good value. Have asked to be put on mailing list to hear of any special offers which says it all! Looking forward to going again.

We too were victims of this system failure. We booked in July when many other hotels were also available (actually available, not artificially appearing as available) and only given two weeks notice to try and re-book. We have not been able to re-book in Harrogate so the weekend is cancelled. We are frantically trying to find another town in England... More
