I stayed at the Cairn January 23rd for one night whilst attending a conference.
On arrival in Harrogate we drove straight to the Cairn and parked up at around 10am. Slightly concerned that we would be clamped or fined, I visited reception to check whether I could park so early prior to check in - not a problem as far as receptionist Emma was concerned - simply checked my reservation, handed me a parking badge and wished me a pleasant day. As far as we were concerned, a great start.
On return to the hotel later in the day, we checked in - swift and friendly check in, a different receptionist but just as pleasant.
The room was a twin, comfortable, slightly dated, a very small flat screen TV ( not used) and a very attractive bathroom - all perfectly satisfactory for a one night stay. The hotel is quite dated and as my colleague commented 'well lived in'.
Bar service was excellent, friendly and efficient, breakfast service was good and whilst there was the annoying self service toaster ( I hate them) I was delighted to have some brought to me with my coffee ;-) breakfast was served for me at a buffet style service point, was plentiful and tasty.
The hotel may be a little dated however it is perfectly situated, comfortable and managed by friendly staff.
I would return.
