Booked this hotel with a wowcher voucher and was very pleased. All the staff are very friendly. The hotel is lovely and very clean and it is a 5 minute walk into the town centre. I would highly recommend for a stay in Harrogate.

We arrived in a very rainy Harrogate to what can only be described as a very weathered looking hotel. We were checked in by a pleasant girl, who reminded me I needed to pay a supplement for our double bed we had requested! (I still find that very odd) but I paid extra money, to get no sleep as we...

Hotel is old and retains a bit of olde worlde charm. Rooms are clean and appeared well maintained. All the staff that we came into contact with could not have been more friendly and helpful. It was helpful that as well as their name their badge also indicated their country of origin. This being helpful for visitors from overseas. We... More

We stayed at the Cairn Hotel as it is close to the International Centre where we were attending a concert. The hotel is an old building and is therefore a little "tired" in places. It is also a venue for private parties as we discovered (there is a notice to that effect on display at reception. The room we were... More

Stayed last night in a standard room. Clean and comfortable but sheets rather than duvets. Bathroom was clean but did not offer a bar of soap. A shower gel in the shower area ( over the bath ) and hand soap gel by the sink. Our room was very near what we think was a boiler or air conditioning unit... More

Especially enjoyed my recent three day dancing break – and as a bone-us we could take our well behaved whippet. There was a £10 a night charge for the dog, but I do appreciate there is more work involved in keeping the hotel and grounds clean and tidy. Our dancing hosts Mary and Trevor Britton mixed well, and made us... More
