Nearly but not quite......

We had been staying in the local area at the Duchally Estate all week, but decided to venture out to sample another local restaurant. We had selected the Cairn Lodge based on their website and in particular the menu. On arrival we were greeted by the nan in reception, who then turned into the... read more

Followed a local recommendation to this place and the appearance set high expectations, but the delivery was not matching. Limited menu on a weekend seems strange but the decor looks eye catching and the restaurant was quiet at lunchtime. Friendly greeting and shown to table but no one offered to take coats or jackets and the chair backs are too... More

My friend was given a voucher for afternoon tea for two at Cairn Lodge as a birthday present and I was asked to accompany her. Lovely entrance and warmly welcomed by the person on reception and was greeted by our waitress for the afternoon, Maria. Decor here is lovely and nice big chairs. The afternoon tea was great. Small dainty... More

Been here a few times, steaks are good, fish portions can be a bit small. Decent wine list that's fairly priced. Lovely dining room. Service can be a bit patchy.

We stayed here in June and the hotel is lovely. It is very relaxing and the food was great but there was not a lot to do or visit in the surrounding area.

Excellent food, reasonably priced and friendly service. Wide variety available on menu. Desserts were also very nice, could not make a bad comment on any part of the meal.

I think it's fair to say we have always been fairly underwhelmed by this so-called 5 star hotel. However our latest experience was probably the worst so far. Being local we have visited The Cairn many times for dinner. I have always thought the staff were a bit lacking and the food was over-priced - but sometimes convenience wins. We... More

Our friends treated us to a meal here while on holiday in Crieff. What a lovely place, service and food was great. One small criticism the carpet could have done with a vacuum a few crumbs left over I assume from breakfast. Well worth a visit. We ate the slow cooked lamb, salmon and chicken all were cooked to perfection.
