Visited the Cairn Hotel for a Meal with My Partner & Friends, not our first visit & won't be our last. The Food is Excellent & Well Presented! the Menu has a Few Good Choices, a Three Course Meal is Superb Value. Staff are Helpful, Pleasant & the Restaurant is Very Nice.

They ensured there was an area for guests to move to next... More

This is good value for money considering the prices of hotels in Falkirk where I was working. Check-in was efficient and my room upgraded. Clean and tidy with everything you'd expect. Meal was good value but the chicken curry was not good. Food around me looked nice. Convenient location off M8

The bed was also a bit hard and lumpy and the shower less than minimally powerful. However, it was clean and there were... More
