From my previous reviews you will find that I am a fan of the larger corporate hotel chains, that being said, The privately owned Cairndale Hotel was just around the corner from where I was to be, therefore selected on location.
The hotel is large with an swimming pool and gym (bonus!!).
Booking was easy, helpful guy on the desk and I was given the (rather large and weighty) key for room 80 on the second floor of the original building.
Hotel is based around an old building with annexes.
Room was fair sized with what looked like a farily recently refurbished bathroom, nice plush towels and a selection of toiletries.
I used the spa for a swim which was good and not too busy.
I then retired to the bar area for a quiet drink and evening meal.
The bar and restaurant seem to be in the very lower floor of the building and wifi is patchy at best or not there at all, therefore using the computer is tricky, although it was fine in the room itself.
As the title says, this part of the hotel squeaks a lot!!
The floorboards above me and mine all squeaked, not a criticism, you would expect this from an old building, some people may find it intrusive.
I'm sure that if I had the time and patience to be moved the request would have been facilitated.
On the whole, a very good hotel but I did miss the "was everything OK with your stay" part in the morning, bill paid and out the door swiftly.
I would recommend this hotel, it has a good central location, very good food in the restaurant and a swimming pool attached.
