A grand Hotel with a wonderful atmosphere. Marble columns and majestic arches make an impressive backdrop to the focal point of entry. You could be forgiven mistaking this lovely establishment for a grand Country House. The furnishings are the same period style and the whole experience is comfortable, Staff are helpful and generally cheerful, but the percentage of overseas personnel... More

We've stayed at the Cairn in the past and were pleased to see that they have refurbished some of the floors.. we were on the first floor this time and the corridor carpets looked new as did the carpet in our bedroom. We've stay here 3 times and have never had a room that had any sort of view and... More

We had stayed at the Cairn back in 1989 when, to be honest, it was looking a bit tired. Not ones to bare a grudge, we returned for a mid-week break 25 years later and discovered it looking anything but. We stayed in a first floor room found via the grand staircase and were delighted with its size. Not only... More

Stayed here in march and came back in june as the hotel does half board packages. At reception we were upgraded to a larger room and was massive, over looking the side of the building on the 1st floor. On the first night we were given a bottle of prosecco as part of our package. The food served in the... More

Stayed at the Cairn for two days to spectate at the TDF. Parking was bit of a challenge, but understandable with a full house. Our room was fine, spacious and quiet, clean and decorated to a good spec. Lovely bathroom and good shower. Public rooms were a bit "stressed", but period and delightful. Good breakfasts, professional friendly staff. Had dinner... More

Stayed here for two nights, Friday and Saturday for the Tour De France. Had been a bit concerned by some of the photos here, but needn't have been. This is a large (135 room) Victorian hotel, built in the heyday of the British Spa holiday. It would have been very grand for its day, and in many ways it still... More

A great hotel in the middle of Harrogate with large free car park. Wifi only in reception and bar areas is a negative in this day and age. Staff were great and so helpful when I needed something. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was standard fare and served in the large restaurant. Rooms are being refurbished at the moment... More
