We stayed in room 312 on a coach tour with Plimbley Travelsome weeks ago, and it was rather remiss of me not to review this before. However we were very pleased with all aspects of this hotel. The room was very good along with excellent food and kind attention from the staff at all times. As a Christian I was...

I travel for business - a lot. The Cairn is an excellent hotel for those who need a place to stay for a night. The beds are great, the hot water is hot, the staff is very friendly, attentive, and in my case very forgiving of being just stupid. The people taking a bus tour should be extremely delighted. I...

The Cairn Hotel is very clean and comfortable with excellent facilities to suit all. Well situated for visiting the town of Harrogate which is easily accessed by public transport as there is a bus stop just outside the hotel.

Before we went I had read reviews on here which were mixed so we went with apprehension expecting the worst but what a surprise it was perfectly great hotel. Spotlessly clean lovely bedroom great breakfast some people moan about the slightest thing think some think there some sort of 'Hotel Inspector'. If you are thinking of going don't hesitate !!

This hotel is a good place to stay for a break.The staff make you very welcome,food and service is excellent. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We stayed in room 103 very good. It is only about ten minutes walk to the town centre and not very far to explore Yorkshire dales.
