Stayed over just the 1 night due to a business trip, ideally situated for my morning commute into Edinburgh. Room was spotlessly clean and included everything I needed, so for the price I couldn't fault anything (not that I was looking to anyway). Didn't have an evening meal so can't comment. Check in was quick, staff very helpful and pleasant.... More

My husband and I had often enjoyed lunch at the Cairn Hotel, but had never stayed in the hotel. I recently spent 4 nights at the hotel while workmen were busy in our home. I found the Cairn Hotel comfortable. The room was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Thought had been given in the creation of the room. There were... More

We visited as a group of 9 and were not disappointed. Great value for money with 3 courses for £14. Only grumble was that the Apple tart desert was really a custard tart with a dollop of stewed apple . Not very inspiring. On the whole the meal was great and the sweet can be improved. Recommended

A friend of a friend was getting married and was asked to go along, the main room where we were was small but good size or this wedding, the DJ layout was alright could have been better, The staff were very friendly, Prices were not bad i suppose due to location.

Booked a room with breakfast included as we were attending an evening reception at The Vu nearby. The lady on reception was excellent and could not have been more helpful on checking us in and out but after that it was downhill.

For the price we paid for a double room and breakfast was definitely good value. Room was clean and comfortable and had just enough space for us. Hairdryer didn't work but other than that it was fine. We had a meal in the restaurant which we all enjoyed and breakfast was also good. Reception staff helpful and sorted out taxi... More

Stayed here for 2 nights ,Great lounge and bar area for meeting and relaxing . Breakfast is average but ok for the price paid with the room . The staff are great and very friendly. Sadly the rooms are looking dated although they are clean and we did sleep well.
