We went to The Cairn very recently for a family meal, having booked a private room. The standard of food diners can expect in West Lothian isn't high, but the meal slightly exceeded them. However we finished - quite literally - with a bad taste in our mouths. For starters, most of the party had haggis pakora or minestrone soup....

I booked the Cairn Hotel for a small event, an afternoon tea for 65 following my late mother's funeral. From the first visit to view the hotel, to the event itself, the staff could not have been more helpful, relaxed, caring and genuine. The day itself was so well run and how refreshing is it these days surrounded my mediocre...

On the evening of my wedding in October 2016 at the Cairn Hotel a group from another wedding party created a disturbance which subsequently lead to members of my wedding party being set upon in what I can only describe as a shameful display of drunken behaviour that was poorly managed by the night porter in charge. He was telling...

Wouldn't stay here again as its not the cleanest & felt very uncomfortable with some of the staff....particularly the owner....quite rude & unprofessional. Quite intimidating actually, especially as a female staying alone.

Stayed there whilst on a business trip to a local school. A very handy spot being only 20 miles from Edinburgh. Good safe car parking, Premises are warm and comfortable. Bedroom a good size. Well worth coming to if a tourist in central Scotland

This place has been on my door step for years but never got round to visit it until I attended a funeral luncheon today and was most surprised. Received a very warm welcome on arrival, which was respectively done. We were even ushered into the area that was set aside for us and the service was impeccable. The food we...

What can I say excellent value for money ! We both had steakpie which was easily the best we have had out in a long time. We had to enquire about our desserts as there seemed to be a delay which was rectified quickly but can only say they were well worth waiting for fantastic taste and presentation ! Staff...

Had a great night on Hogmanay. At £69 each for a 3 course meal with canapés and prosecco on arrival, plus a piper and live band it was good value. The meal was lovely and not rushed and the whole evening was thoroughly enjoyable. Will definitely consider returning next year.
