What can I say excellent value for money ! We both had steakpie which was easily the best we have had out in a long time. We had to enquire about our desserts as there seemed to be a delay which was rectified quickly but can only say they were well worth waiting for fantastic taste and presentation ! Staff...

Had a great night on Hogmanay. At £69 each for a 3 course meal with canapés and prosecco on arrival, plus a piper and live band it was good value. The meal was lovely and not rushed and the whole evening was thoroughly enjoyable. Will definitely consider returning next year.

The hotel has a functional looking exterior and although the location doesn’t lend itself to scenic views from the bedroom windows it represents clean and comfortable accommodation if you’re visiting the area. There is plenty of onsite parking. We were attending a wedding at The Vu which is a 10 to 15 minute taxi ride away costing around £8 each...

Went here last weekend and it was terrible. The rooms are tiny, no light over the bed, walls are paper thin and toilet roll on the door? Next on the list is the food. Worst food I have ate out of a hotel. The chicken was the size of the plate with potato underneath it. It was so greasy and...

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....

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...
