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

We all really enjoy visiting this place, the food is consistently good and service etc very good. Pity this time that a couple of standard dishes not on the menu particularly as we didn't find out until after we had ordered but it's worth a visit.

We chose to eat here based on trip advisor ratings and we are glad we did. We were greeted at reception and taken through to the restaurant which was lavishly decorated but comfortable. The staff were attentive and professional. The food was lovely and well presented. I loved the mini saucepans and jars for the sauces! The portion sizes were... More

We booked this at the last minute and was not disappointed. Even though it was getting late we were not rushed other than to choose our desert before the chef left, which was understandable. Would definitely visit again if up in that area

Had lunch here and breakfast the next morning. For lunch the starter was good and the glass of wine we got was drinkable and a fair price. The main though - a burger - was dry - overcooked I think - and needed more relish actually on the bun - there was a side but it was not the same... More
