Harking back to days of yore. Work in progress to return it to its former elegance. Nothing wrong with this hotel. Food good, room fine, price was right, staff were pleasant, minutes from town centre. Yes, I would return.

I booked a 3 night D B&B for February with Easy-Break.com but didn't take our insurance. Later I read other reviews and took the advice given and contacted Easy-Break to upgrade to a Club room which was as the reviewers said well worth the extra £20 per night. However because I had not taken insurance I also had to pay an additional £24 to upgrade, my mistake for not reading the small print which stated "any change to booking would incur an additional charge". This is not a grumble, just a warning.
The staff were pleasant and helpful. The meals were tasty with a good selection to choose from and the wine was not overpriced. Our bedroom & bathroom were clean, the bed comfortable with cotton bed linen and a decent supply of towels. The carpets and decoration in the common areas are rather tired but appear to be in the process of being upgraded, this did not detract from our enjoyment. The main reception area of the hotel is very elegant with comfortable seating arranged in groups. If I was being critical I would suggest it could do with much larger plants to bring it back to its former glory as it’s a beautiful space in which to sit and enjoy a relaxed break. Our stay was excellent value for money, we will return and use it as our base to explore more of this interesting part of Yorkshire and I shall certainly recommend the Cairn Hotel to friends.

stayed at the cairn hotel for 1 night in a club room, which was 70 quid and came with chocolate, robes, fruit and newspaper. the hotel is never going to win any design awards and to be honest needs a bit of an overhaul, tho the lobby and restaurant/bar areas have a certain faded elegance which is really quite nice. the room was very clean, comftable, lovely shower with lots of products provided. its also in a fantastic location, literally a few minutes walk from the centre of harrogate, but was really quiet at night. breakfast was average as far as a help yourself buffet can be, but value for money wise the hotel is great.

Room Tip: club rooms come with extra freebies but probably not worth the money.

We held our first ex veterans reunion in the Cairn in October 2011, there was nearly 50 of us, and it was unanimously agreed that we return again this October for our second reunion. The pre communications and level of customer service was outstanding and was no less when we were there for the weekend.Yes the hotel is a little old fashioned - but that only added to its charm. It was warm, friendly and welcoming. The staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms and food top class. Our event culminated in a Gala Dinner in the Mountbatten Suite and was faultless. Well done guys!!!!

Added luxury for a romantic getaway. The 4 poster surround on the bed topped a great weekend away in Harrogate. The Cairn is comfortable and homely despite being a little dated.
The staff are excellent!

Room Tip: Executive rooms give you added extras which can be booked through special offers, etc.
