We stayed here for two nights, to be close to the venue where our niece was getting married. To be honest, nowadays, my husband and I usually treat ourselves to 5 star hotels, but we couldn't find any close enough for us, so we chose The Cairn, purely for the location and didn't really expect much. However, from the moment... More

This was a family night out for a get together, I must say that I was most impressed with the Cairn Hotel. There is a nice friendly atmosphere and the staff were very helpful indeed. We all had a three course dinner and all portions were very well presented indeed for £12. If you are looking for fine dinning then... More

Service was a bit slow as there was a couple from our table waiting for a good bit for their dinner. Overall we had... More

I have stayed here on multiple occasions over the years and feel I have to give some constructive comments this time. The staff are all very friendly but especially the waitress Debbie who really goes out of her way to make you welcome. Food is excellent. However the accommodation is in serious need of refurbishment. Rooms on ground floor were... More

Myself and 3 friends had lunch there on 10th March 2015. Two people had the steak pie which looked lovely but was returned uneaten as all you could taste was salt. I had stuffed chicken breast which also was uneaten as the chicken was so dry I couldn't eat it. Nothing was deducted from the billl and I asked to... More

Thank you for your comments. You state that the Steak Pie was very salty. I do not understand how this could be as we do not put salt or seasoning in our steak pie. You also state that your meals were uneaten. However I have been advised that when the plates were cleared from your table after your main course... More

We went on 07/03/15 for a meal. It was fantastic and very reasonably priced. Our party of 4 dined for less than £60, we all had 3 courses and two of us had alcoholic beverages while the other two had soft drinks. The food was plentiful and of a high standard. Staff were also very friendly. We will be back.
