The setting is beautiful with nice high back arm chair. The menu is varied and so is the wine list. Plenty of parking spaces and the service is good and attentive. At times you have to book in advance for dinner as the place can get filled up quite quickly.

Enjoyed three dinners and breakfast here. All were delicious and v well presented. Our steaks and venison dish are to be highly recommended and Chef will also delight you with his desserts: wow !! Try the Baked Alaska! The service was relaxed and attentive. There were several other tables dining and everyone was being looked after. Drinks are reasonably priced... More

The place is falling to pieces (large decorative mirror badly cracked, sinks in toilets not properly affixed to the wall/floor, hand dryers out of order, no-one clearing empty tables), restaurant was empty, chicken was raw. Took a long time to remedy. Waitress apologised, manager did not. They took our drinks off the bill (2 diet cokes) - didn't quite cut... More

I have to say that normally when you return to a hotel that you have previously stayed you become more critical. You notice things you haven't noticed before. Having read previous reviews these are my observations. We were me by an extremely friendly manager called Tom. He made us feel extremely welcome and valued. We were shown to our rooms... More

While visiting Gleneagles for the weekend we decided to pop into the Cairn for a drink and something to eat. Already knew it was up for sale, but having previously stayed at the sister hotel in Stirling (Colessio) which was Fab we thought the Cairn would be of similar standard. How wrong we're we! First impressions were the the hotel... More

Excellent meal, great service and amazing value for money with 2 course lunch served for £12.95pp. We were given a voucher by our son which included lunch for two and two glass of prosecco for £33….doesn't get much better than that. The food was high quality, great ambience in the restaurant and excellent service

The table was booked, and very nicely laid out. The staff and service were exemplary. The price was expensive but expected. The food was lovely, although I wont have the Venison again, not quite cooked enough, the staff were very attentive ensuring everything was okay. Not catered for disabled as had to climb steps. A ramp would be a good... More
