We have stayed at this hotel for 8 years with our children as they have now grown up we decided to stay as a couple. When we booked we requested a room we had seen previously and were pleased this request was granted as it was in a quiet location. The room was very clean and tidy which has always... More

The staff as always provided excellent service and are always helpful and very polite. The hotel is very clean and the rooms have everything you need... More

Attended for what I hoped would be a great evening of food and entertainment. But the evening started with a very poor 3 course dinner. The food, my starter of whisky prawn cocktail with baby gem lettuce & brown bread consisted of very little amount of prawns with plenty of sauce but the prawns were very rubbery almost like a...

The hotel has a lot of pigeons living on the building itself and when we looked out the bathroom all you could see was pigeon poo and feathers.So nice smell and view.the room we stayed in number 157 has been stuck in a time warp from 1992.The carpet was thread bare and the upstairs corridor was dated from the 1970,s....

We, took advantage of one of the hotel's "special offers", strawberries & cream, which meant that on arrival, after check-in, we enjoyed a dish of strawberries & cream, washed down with a glass of Pimms. A nice start to what proved to be a very enjoyable 4 days in Harrogate. Having stayed in Harrogate in guest houses before, we found... More

This is the 3rd year we have stayed at this hotel and we are never disappointed. The hotel is very clean and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, if you are disabled they go out of there way to accommodate you. The hotel is down the road from Harrogate centre and baths. They are dog friendly. The entrance... More

We have stayed at the Cairn many times and usually found it to be a reasonable place to stay. However, on this occasion, we were disappointed. The room just had a shower inside the bath which meant that neither my wife nor I could use it because of mobility issues - so other mobility impaired people beware. As has been... More

Harrogate is a town full of grandiloquent buildings from the Victorian era and this is one of them. Originally a gentleman's residence, it has been extended, modified and well used over the years but eventually rescued from receivership in 1992 by the present owners who started then on a costly renovation and restoration which continues to this day. Buildings of... More

We have stayed at the Cairn three times now and we love it. Yes, it's not a 5* hotel but it doesn't have a 5* price tag, far from it. It represents excellent value for money, the staff are friendly and make you feel welcome. The bar area is most relaxing and the breakfast is great, although a few croissants... More
