Restaurant was disappointing with food that clearly has been prepared hours in advance.

We stayed the night at the Cairn hotel. The car park is huge with plenty of parking space. We had a suite which was amazing. It was clean and tidy and plenty warm enough. The carvery meal we had was lovely and there was a huge breakfast selection from fruit and yoghurt to full English breakfast. Every member of staff... More

I have stayed here a number of times, though not for a couple of years now. On this occasion my friend and I had the two best rooms that I have ever seen in this hotel. I know from experience that several of the rooms in this hotel are very small indeed. However, it was clear that both of these... More

We're just back from spending two nights with breakfast at this lovely old hotel. Really clean, comfortable, and warm ( it was February!) the staff were very helpful and pleasant, the breakfasts were varied and plentiful. An added bonus is that it's only a short walk into the centre of Harrogate. We will certainly stay here again, many thanks!

Accommodation average. Breakfast and one of two evenings meals less than average. The staff were very pleasant and helpful though a slight language barrier in the dining room. My single bedroom was comfortable and was very clean. A bonus for me was a bath. It also had a shower over the bath. The room was small but adequate.
