Very good
The hotel is really good and the service as well. It’s close to literally anything and there is also a bus station nearby. I recommend purchasing breakfast as it is really good and they offer many options. The room was clean, warm and comfortable. The only thing I disliked was the shower, it looked to me rather dirty, but the bathroom was lovely otherwise.

Great Size and Clean rooms
Great room. It was big and spacious. Bathroom was a good size and the beds were comfy. Only issue I had was that we were by the stairs on the main level and you could hear people going up and down. Other than’s was great especially for the price! Would stay again.

Edinburgh Playhouse visit
Perfect location for our purpose, loads of eateries within walking distance, bus stops within a 5 minute walk to make travel around the City so easy. Excellent check-in/check-out, staff very good. Breakfast very good, ample choice, breakfast room clean and welcoming and staff on the ball. Would definitely stay again.

2 night stay at The Cairn Hotel
We stayed for 2 nights while visiting the Edinburgh Playhouse. Disappointed that there was no lift as my wife struggles with stairs. The room was a reasonable size and the bed was very large with reading lights, there were several sockets and charger points, the walk-in shower was a plus. The hotel is within easy walking to the Playhouse and Omni centre, unfortunately it doesn't do evening meals but we found a little Italian restauraunt almost back to back with the hotel. Parking can be an issue as one side of the road is permit holders only and the other side of the road is 4 hours Max during the daytime.

Poor 2.0
We where woken up at 8 am with the chamber maid IN OUR ROOM She didn’t knock and we had to tell her to leave.! We paid for late checkout when we arrived and then got a phone call telling us we had to leave before our late checkout time. Our room was very basic even though we paid for a upgrade. Overall we wouldn’t stay there again and certainly wouldn’t be recommending this to our friends/family.
