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

Two nights at this hotel. Victorian hotel which is in reasonably good condition and currently undergoing some renovation (painting). I loved the hotel and found it charming and full of character. Had a twin room and it was big enough for two people. Beautiful features like the stained glass window near the staircase. The staff were all helpful and polite.... More

Large and spacious Victorian hotel with plenty of parking and free wifi in the downstairs area. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, both front of house and in the dining room. Very decent breakfast and our room - a superior one - had plenty of space and a modern bathroom.

Lovely old hotel but rather tired décor on the upper floors. Staff were friendly and helpful and we had a lovely Anniversary dinner and the breakfasts are fantastic. Always seemed busy but we were not disturbed by any functions.
