I stayed here for 3 nights, working in Livingstone. First time here, usually stay in premier inn closer to the job. First impressions were quiet understand hotel and decor, pleasantly surprised by the comfort of room and the excellent food. Fresh tasty well presented dishes, good enough to grace any restaurant, the unbelievable bit is that £12.00 got you 3... More

Went here for the first time last Friday, there was 12 of us for a family celebration. Cannot fault the service and a 3 course meal for £12 was exceptional value and was decent food too, not one complaint out of the 12 of us.

Since moving to Bathgate 2 and a half years ago we regularly take advantage of the 3 courses for £12 offer and are never disappointed with the food or service. Our late lunch on Tuesday was no different. There's a wide variety of dishes on the menu (steaks are a bit extra) as well as constantly changing specials eg soup,... More

Recently at this hotel for a wedding and it left alot to be desired. After paying extra for a "superior room", it wasn't very big and the only thing different from the other rooms was that it came with a hairdryer. The room itself was just alright and served its function of staying for one night. There was a few... More

I know how hard it is to run an independent hotel, when you have to compete with big chain hotels, and I do hope this hotel survives. Having stayed for one night for a business meeting this week the cleanliness of the hotel and the politeness of the staff was excellent. The menu was great value for money if a... More

Very clean, plenty of staff, good wifi speed, room good size, 3 course meal for £12 was unbelievable value, very good,except for pakora chicken starter which seemed to have missed any spices. the hotel is at the edge of an industrial estate so no nice views but even though I slept with my window...

We arrived at the Cairn Hotel surprised it's seemed ok the reviews we had read. The rooms were nice but cramped all around the bed area leaving nowhere to be able to walk freely around the bed. The dressing table was place right at the bottom of the bad when there is plenty of room for this further along the... More

An ordinary property unfortunately sandwiched between 2 busy roads. No early morning call was required as the rush of traffic from 5.00am on the dual carriageway was more than sufficient. If you are expected to pay over £100 for 1 night B & B this is just not good enough. If you must stay here don't accept a room overlooking... More
