Brilliant family accommodation”

We came to Edinburgh for Hogmanay and Cairn Hotel was one of the few places we could find to sleep three separately. I'm so glad we booked here; they gave us a family room, with comfortable beds, heaps of space, a lovely bathroom with bathtub, and the breakfast provided was fantastic. The location is amazing; so convenient to everything. Friendly staff, and an 11am check out as standard.

Great value in good location!”

We just returned from our trip to Scotland, and stayed at the Cairn Hotel the first two nights and the last night of our trip. We were pleasantly surprised at the comforts of this 3-star hotel and found it to be a very good value. The hotel is reasonably close to the train station and center of town, if you don't mind a short walk (otherwise it is a short taxi ride). The lobby is not impressive and the reception area made me think more of a hostel than a hotel, but the rooms are recently renovated, modern, clean, and comfortable. Toiletries, a fan, a hair dryer, bottled water, and snacks are provided. The hotel was nice and quiet for a good night's sleep. The hotel will hold suitcases/bags for £1 a bag after the 11 am check-out.

Great location, clean & value for money! Highly recommended!”

Very nice boutique hotel great price! Front office tall & lean young man was doing a great job & extra mile service to share with us how to walk around Edinburgh town with a small little useful map, which I used throughout my walking in the town. Because of his great advise to the Carlton Hill, we witness superb sunset of Edinburgh unexpectedly, just at the right time! Wonderful experience! And the complimentary baskets is fantastic! Very touch by the small little things :) Room & bathroom look very new, i believe was newly renovated. Great Great Great!

Nice hotel with friendly staff”

Hotel is about 5 minutes away with taxi from the train station (Waverly). it is about 10 minutes walking distance to the centre of the town. It is a very nice hotel, I had mine on the ground floor and had a single bed in my room. It was very nice and clean. Had a bit of a hiccup on the first day with my toilet, but it was rectified straight away after I informed the front desk. Staff was very friendly! I had a bit of a surprise when they said there are complimentary snacks (chocolates and crisps!) which is a nice service. If i ever come to Edinburgh, i will come and stay here again! thank you!

It is a perfect location and value for money.”

The hotel is 10min walk from Edinburgh Waverly Station and there are buses just outside the hotel that takes u to Portobello Beach and Harlaw Reservoir. The room has a very comfortable and big bed. There is also a TV and the toilet is clean and spacious and pretty. The only downside is that there is no lift, so we have to carry our heavy luggages down the stairs after check in but this is the same everywhere else for this price tag.
