I booked a table for 15 in the Cairn's Bar & Grill to celebrate my Dad's 70th Birthday. The table was booked way in advance and some of the party who do not live in the area booked a room for the night too. It was important that we were all together to celebrate his birthday. I cannot express enough... More

Thank you for your comments. Please accept my apologies for the mix up over your table. I am very sorry that your party was split up and seated on 2 tables back to back. This should never have happened hence the reason we gave you bottles of Prosecco as way of an apology. However I do understand this did not... More

Took dinner here with a party about 70 strong - but that's no excuse for poor quality catering. Had breaded haddock, and my wife had chicken. Both meals disappointing in quality - my haddock was wafer thin, with more "breaded" than fish, and the accompanying chips were not even lukewarm. My wife declared her chicken poor tasting, and she left... More

Thank you for your comments. I am most concerned to read your review that highlighted problems concerning the standard of food. This area is normally a strength in the hotel.
