Cairn Hotel Newcastle Upon

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Limited parking to the rear of the hotel by the bins. No cooked breakfast - continental only (which I thought was quite misleading - normally breakfast included means cooked or continental). Bar OK if you don't mind students, wet tables and sticky floors. Oh and no hot water on the final day.

I chose this hotel as I had an appointment at the Freeman hospital at 0930hrs the next day, the hotel write up stated it was less than a mile away from the hospital, we arrived on the Sunday afternoon, parked on site which was very useful, I spoke to the staff on reception who were very helpful and pleasant, our room was on the first floor, which was handy as I didn’t see a lift, the room was very clean and tidy, I’d paid for a superior king so expected a larger bed than we had, I couldn’t get the heating in the room to work properly, not a problem for me but my partner was cold, also the bathroom radiator didn’t work, I was unable to drink alcohol due to my appointment, but the bar downstairs looked very nice, and I could not fault the decor throughout the building,the shower for me was the past part of the room, I hate having a weak shower, my partner is coeliac, so the following morning she explained this to the staff, it stated this could be catered for in the menu, they only had an option of toast for anyone gluten intolerant which I thought was poor, the member of staff had to in fact go to the local shop for gluten free bread to accommodate my partner, I couldn’t have any breakfast due to my appointment, so I cannot comment on the food, however it was a continental breakfast so I probably wouldn’t have eaten much, I much prefer I good old full English breakfast. Under different circumstances I feel this hotel would be an excellent choice, as it’s close to all the bars that Jesmond have to offer, and minutes away from the metro into Newcastle city centre, I would stay here again in the future, as the rooms are very nice.

If you get a room by the main staircase immediately ask to be moved. There is no sound proofing to the staircase, nor to the corridor, and all the doors slam shut. The rooms are actually nice, but ours hadn't been cleaned properly. We managed to get parked, but were then blocked in. Breakfast was nice in the next door restaurant. Without the sleep deprivation it would have been a good choice

In a beautiful location with ample parking the Cairn was very welcoming. Tastefully furnished and decorated throughout, it offered great value for money. Popular bar and restaurant. 1st class breakfast.

I usually stay in Jesmond when on business, however this is the first time staying at this hotel. Pleasantly surprised. Staying in deluxe room, and was not disappointed. The room was huge, nice decor, tv at foot of bed, lovely bathroom, complimentary toiletries. What more could you ask for. Great that the breakfast is included as part of the price, no cooked breakfast however the selection is all I wanted. It would be even better if the hotel offered room service with the facilities of the restaurant or bar/pub either side of reception. Other hotels offer this service so would be ideal for single guests not wanting to sit in a restaurant. Highly recommended and I will be staying again. Thank you!

The hotel has the feel of a once grand establishment which, although still perfectly good, is a little past it's prime. Located a stones throw away from the railway station the entrance is quite grand with impressive chandeliers and a dramatic central staircase in the reception area, Reception staff were friendly and courteous and offer wake-up calls. The room itself was fine albeit a little on the cramped side and could do with a bit of a makeover in terms of carpet and decor (faded). Complimentary kit-kats and orange juice were provided in the fridge, which was a nice touch, and there were tea and coffee making facilities and flat screen tv. There was no safe in the room. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a reasonable size with complimentary products. Breakfast was served from 7pm (bit late on a week day) and was ok - nothing special and not a huge selection. Overall an ok place to stay and an interesting building.

Lovely little hotel situated not far from the city. Our room was small but very comfortable for the two of us. Although the window next to the bed (we where above the fancy restaurant door) was very chilly. Luckily my partner likes the cold. It's good that you can control the heating to your room. Very spacious shower. Clean and tidy. Breakfast was basic maybe more cereal and fruit options would be nice if May be even hot breakfast sandwiches.

What a great little find. The rooms are not massive but clean and have everything we needed. The staff were great and friendly , and the continental breakfast what really tasty. The total plus was the is a link to the bar next door and the restaurant on the other side. We got free drinks with our meal in the restaurant. Totally made our night. Thumbs up.

Not all was well during our stay at Cairns Hotel but this was made up for by the friendliness of the brilliant staff. Location is good and price as well. Rooms were small but well fitted out. We loved the breakfast.

Stayed at the hotel over the weekend, with my Mum, whilst vising my son at university. A lovely hotel with great facilities and if you can get one of their parking spaces at the back, it's really convenient. Overall the rooms were really good. However, we had booked 2 x kingsize doubles and I'd say one of them hit the brief but the other didn't. The rooms were extremely clean and had good facilities but I would say the bedding needed updating as it wasn't very good quality and the mattress was a little soft for me. Apart from that, great value for money and would stay again.
