The first thing that I would like to point out is that this review is about a special one night only. After hearing some good reviews from the 2013 Hogmanay dinner dance my wife and I attended the 2014 Hogmanay dinner dance at the Cairn along with five close friends. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and... More

I was thankfully in excellent company. Hotel was impressive, greeted by piper, complimentary champagne and nibbles. The function room was immaculately set out but sadly black and dark silver ballons were everywhere and spoilt the atmosphere. The meal was very good, served by a lovely professional young staff. What could go wrong? Then the Ceilidh Band started. The company were... More

Every year my wife and I go out for Hogmanay in the Bathgate area. This year I suggested we try the Cairn having visited it a couple of times in the past with business colleagues. When I called to book I was told they required a £10 deposit per head, and the balance paid by 3rd November. I immediately commented... More

My second time at here, this time a four night stay, and what a pleasure! The hotel itself is all one could wish for, clean as a whistle, lovely comfortable decor, a welcoming and warm atmosphere. The staff are incredible, nothing is too much trouble, they go the "extra mile" every time, they make you feel like you are one... More

Paid £99 for what should be a £30 room as I had no choice as everywhere was booked or 50% higher prices then normal, I expect the price may have been pumped up due to the Ryder cup being in Scotland but guess in normal times they would charge upwards of £50 I'm guessing. My advice is (which I should... More

Great wedding, very well organised, food delicious and service impeccable. My only negative comment would be the bedroom was very cramped, other than that couldn't fault it. Staff very friendly and attentive.
