            Close to harrogate center and a nice welcoming entrance hall.Staff was helpfull.

            No Coffee or Tea offered for breakfast in the morning, had to ask the staff. Noone semed to be bothered to check tables if anybody wants anything. Quick to empty table though.

            The hotel had character and the room was clean, well appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed for 1 night bed and breakfast and the breakfast was seld service but very good. There was plenty of choice. Service was very good.

            The most disappointing thingwas the Hotels description of wine and chocolates in your room The wine was two very small bottles of white/red wine and the chocolates were a handful of chocolates taken from a box of celebrations and put into a square glass jar. I was informed as I booked in we could help ourselves to as many chocolates as we wanted to.I Was flabbergasted. I would never have expected a handful of celebrations in a jar to be 'chocolates' in your room. Othern than that maybe attention to the musky smell in the corrideors.

            Friendly and helpful staff

            No air-con in room, very hot. Shower/bathroom tap poor & irregular water supply (shower kept stopping).

            The reception staff was wonderful, particularly Lenka, who was very accomodating and professional while being friendly and welcoming. We had been traveling throughout England for two weeks when we arrived at the Cairn, often having to leave suitcases in our rental car because the rooms were too little for them. We asked for a large room at the Cairn, which they gladly gave us and which was wonderful. The wine and chocolates are a nice touch too. We especially liked the large lobby with so many places to sit and use our computers or read. Food in the dining room was good and plentiful. The rooms are updated, although the outside of the hotel needs some paint and upkeep. However, for the money it was a great stay and we'd definitely stop there again on another trip.

            Having wi-fi in the rooms would be helpful.

            Helpful staff. Car parking. Close to town centre. Wifi in hotel lounge. Price. Good room size. Quiet location.

            The hotel is slightly scruffy, the room we stayed in was cold due to the old poor fitting sash window which moved about 5mm in the strong winds occurring during our stay. The building is externally ugly, and on some aspects, appears to be clad in a mass of cast iron soil pipes, giving one a sinking feeling of dread as you approach it for the first time. TV was an old 14inch portable with about only half a dozen channels, their was a big flay screen in the hotel lounge.

            Brilliant location, five minute walk from town centre. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room. Great breakfast, plenty of choice.

            A little shabby. In need of updating - decoration, new carpets and soft furnishings.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Club room booked, which had been recently renovated, so nice. Hotel larger/more spacious than expected, Near enough to walk to main centre. Breakfast was self-service, but good quality.

            Hotel a little "tired" decor-wise in parts (corridors creaky, carpets old), but nothing I wasn't expecting. A bit slow on the service at breakfast time (coffee/tea took a while, as did the cleaning up of dirty dishes).

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            It was nice and clean, our room had just been decorated and we could still smell the fresh paint, we also liked the breakfast plus the service we got.

            Gaffa tape on corridor floors, it looks very unsightly. People smoking outside the front doors of the hotel

            The location was fabulous, the staff were very friendly. The room was clean, warm and cosy. The hotel didn't charge extortionate amounts at the bar. No parking issues which good

            Plentiful Parking Just a good all round hotel

            We went to breakfast at 8.15 .......not many staff ....I had to go back to the guy checking us in and ask for our beverages and toast!!

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The hotel was old and had loads of character. We were pleased that they hadn't spoilt it by making it look like everywhere else (black leather sofas etc). We loved the old greens of the furnishings, the original chairs in the foyer, the breakfast room was lovely and especially the original dark green felt wallpaper. The room was less lovely but comfortable and worth the money we paid. Breakfast was very good. Please don't re-vamp this hotel, it was charmingly old and an authentic shabby chic. We loved the opera music too.
