We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were all extremely welcoming and friendly. Our double room was plenty big enough, spotlessly clean and comfortable with en suite bathroom and tea and coffee making facilities. We ate in the restaurant adjacent to the bar which was really busy but the 'locals' made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was very good...

My husband and I stayed here for one night and wish we'd booked for longer. The hotel is cosy, quaint and exactly what we were looking for in Speyside. We had dinner and drinks in the bar, which has a great small town atmosphere. The veggie haggis burger and green curry with prawns were both a generous size, there was...

Was only in the area for two days and was wanting a cheap, clean hotel with easy access to the surrounding area. The Cairn Hotel met all these criteria and also had very comfortable and well appointed rooms as well. Wasn't anything over the top, but for the price I was paying, I didn't expect it to be, and was...

Warm and friendly Inn with a lovely open fire in the Bar, which is also popular with the locals so a great atmosphere. Stayed two nights. Ensuite room a wee bit dated but clean, comfortable and spacious and staff were excellent. We arrived on a Sunday so had the 3 course set meal for £15.00, real home cooked fresh food....

We stopped in the area for lunch on our way from Inverness to Edinburgh. From the street you could see the smoke rising from the chimney so we knew it was going to be lovely and cozy! We had a lovely seat by the fire, a cuppa, and a delicious lunch. You have to try the smoked haddock macaroni!!! Highly...

I stayed here for two nights and had a pleasant stay. The room we stayed in was front facing and had all required amenities, en-suite, bunk beds and double bed. The welcome was nice, helpful and set the tone for our stay. Breakfast was pleasant and dinner in the evening was lovely. The Landmark park is a 5 minute walk...

I booked a single room and was given a very nice double room. The bed is quite comfortable and the cooked breakfast is awesome. The guy who I am not sure if he is the owner or staff is very hospitality. Received a warm welcome and the stay is very enjoyable.

So, you want somewhere quiet, welcoming, reasonably priced, with great food (particularly breakfast), attentive host & staff, clean surrounding, free Wifi, free parking, and located close to many & varied outdoor pursuits? The Cairn Hotel was perfect for all of the above! Would highly recommend - it was the ideal choice for us! You will not be disappointed.

Large bedroom with bunk beds in the corner ideal for a family. Room a bit shabby looking but bed was comfy and bathroom was clean. Our dog and ourselves were made very welcome and our host told us about local walks and was very friendly - although I did have difficulty understanding his broad Scottish accent . Food was very...
