Popped into the Cairn Hotel on Friday 1st August, without reservation looking for a table for 4 for a meal. The barman was very accommodating even thou the place was so busy, he got us a table within 20 mins and the meal and service was superb.

We stayed here just 1 night and had a very nice stay. Our room was clean and comfortable, and although overlooking the street, noise was never a distraction. Staff was friendly, breakfast basic but tasty. Bar has tables outside to enjoy the sun when it comes out.

Initially I looked for a place to stay near the Landmark Adventure Park. This hotel was perfectly placed, only a short walking distance. The family and staff were fabulous with us, even providing a few DVDs for kids to watch in the evening. The rooms were lovely laid out, fresh, clean and comfortable with full en-suite facilities. Breakfast was included...

Ate here 3 nights running and the food was lovely every time, nice varied menu with local produce. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice to be able to sit either in the bar, restaurant or outdoors depending on the weather. Always seems popular with locals too.

Visited here mid May. The atmosphere is very welcoming and nothing appears to be too much trouble. Breakfast was AMAZING!!! We booked a triple single bed room but got a double and a single (possible Expedia system problem??) - which meant sharing with a wriggling child and little sleep. The meal on the first night was extremely good, however not...

We hired the private room for our Golden Wedding celebration last Sunday. It was decorated beautifully and the table looked lovely with the flowers at the centre. There were 15 of us. Everyone said how delicious the food was. Gareth and his staff are so obliging and friendly. The menu had something to suit everyone, even some picky children. The...
