Cairn Hotel Newcastle Upon

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was a great location for Jesmond. Very nice hotel, quirky rooms, lovely decor - modern twist. The bar downstairs was very busy in the evening with a DJ. We didn't eat here but had a few drinks. I was a bit disappointed with breakfast, they had run out of eggs and croissants so didn't eat anything, It is continental only. If you want a quiet room I would suggest not having a room over the bar like we did.

It's a beautiful hotel, the room I am in is of a very high standard. I stay in a lot of premier inns/Travelodge's, and I've got to say this place beats them hands down. The bed is so comfy, I've had a great sleep every night this week, a good shower and free toiletries you can't go wrong, there is also the added bonus of a small fridge in your room which is ideal for keeping your drinks cooled and milk fresh. There is only one downfall and that is the car parking situation, very limited spaces which soons fill up, and if you are lucky enough to get a space, before you know it you are blocked in. Unfortunately we haven't been able to get a space and had to park about 5/10 minute walk away. But to be honest I think all the hotels on Osborne street has the same problem when it comes to parking. Apart from that, a great hotel and great value for money 👍👍👍

Stayed here for a night whilst out visiting Newcastle, room was slightly small but featured everything needed. The entire was fully jarred with lots of little goodies, and was pretty much perfect. The only downfall was the location of our room, 324 which was between the first and second floor really, which was a little but awkward to get to as the stairwell is very narrow and the stairs quite steep, not what you want with luggage. We did manage to find a shortcut which helped. So this hotel may not be for those unable to use stairs as all rooms are upstairs. The staff were absolutely lovely and breakfast was lovely, quite different but a lovely surprise.

Off street parking around the back. Antoneta on front desk was very friendly and helpful. Our room was very spacious with excellent bedding and furnishings.. Huge ensuite with quality toiletries. Although this is a hotel, there was no noise from the pub. The only drawback was the uncomfortable bed and pillows! Really need a good nights sleep when you have a long drive the next day. Breakfast excellent with friendly attentive staff.

I booked the Cairn via and got a good deal for pay on arrival with free cancellation. We have stayed at a few of the hotels on Osborne road as we often stay at the bank holidays. The hotel receptionist was very friendly and helpful when I had a problem trying to find somewhere to park. If your planning on taking your car and it is a busy weekend or bank holiday I would suggest to arrive a bit earlier as parking is limited. If you don't get managed to get parked as I discovered there is a street next to a church a short walk away where you are able to park for free. The hotel is in a prime location on Osborne road, perfect for those who are off for food and drinks in Jesmond. The rooms are fresh and modern and although small they make the best of the space. Excellent choice with the TV placed at the bottom of the bed and the rooms have a quirky touch with a modern tiled bathroom and fresh colours and designs. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the little free toiletries were a nice touch. Great value hotel and would definitely recommend and return. The only negative thing I would say would be that breakfast finished quite early so we never got a chance to try it, possibly would be better finishing a little later especially on a bank holiday. If your looking for a short stay and somewhere with a quirky comfortable edge this is your hotel, ideal for leisure or business.

We checked in here for 4 nights in a superior king room. The room was very quirky with good quality bed linen and plentiful supplies of tea, coffee and biscuits. The room had a very attractive shower room and towels were replaced daily. It had a 50” flat screen tv which was built into a unit at the end of the bed. The tv was fitted on a swivel to allow different viewing positions in the room. It had chairs which were rather uncomfortable and a small sloped triangular table which was more ornamental than useful. Room had air conditioning which was very useful. On the downside the hotel is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues as all bedrooms are upstairs (2 flights of stairs) and no lifts available. Also corridors were very narrow and reminds me of one way traffic only. Continental breakfast is included in the price but did not vary during our stay. Two restaurants on site one is a gastropub Food was good and reasonably priced but menu was not extensive. The other restaurant was Asia, very attractive layout but did not use this during our visit. Reception staff were friendly and very helpful. Overall an enjoyable stay

Stayed for one night. Very nice hotel and friendly staff set in a great location. Plenty of restaurant and bars along this road. Continental breakfast was very good and tasty which shows good quality food. The room was great and comfortable. There is parking at the rear but limited. The only thing that let it down was the constant Boom, Boom from the music in the bar below which was bit annoying when trying to sleep. If I was in the area I would stay here again despite the noise at night.

We have just spent a night at this lovely hotel whilst visiting Newcastle to drop our daughter at the University. The hotel is quaint and well placed in Jesmond for those visiting the university or city centre. All of the staff were delightful and helpful. Parking can be a bit tough right at the rear of the hotel but if your not using the car whilst your checked in for the night double parking it won't be a problem. The rooms are immaculate and have everything you need, complimentary tea, coffee and water in the small fridge provided. The bathroom was a dream and we loved the rain shower. Continental Breakfast is served in the adjoining restaurant and there is ample choice with attentive staff to assist. We really did love this little gem of a hotel and its excellent value for money. My only gripe, and the reason I haven't rated it a 5, is after a long 9 hour drive we checked in and were informed that we could order food In the SOHE restaurant but when we freshened up and ventured in at 9.30pm they had stopped serving food. We were too tired to go elsewhere and went to bed without a meal. We were told that we could order drinks but no food. If we had been informed at check in that meals/snacks would not be served in the restaurant after 9.30pm we would have eaten on arrival. Overall this is a charming hotel and I would highly recommend but do ensure you eat before if your arrival is late in the day.

The Cairn Hotel is central, there also is a car park for guests, which can be very tricky. We only stayed for one night and maybe due to the weekend it was a little bit noisy. It may also depend on the room you get. It is clean, the breakfast is okay and the waiter is very attentive!

Smart, clean hotel but our room had no view; in fact it had a frosted window but was quiet and comfortable. The car park was full so we had to park a 10 minute walk away in the rain. Very disappointing continental breakfast, running out of everything because not enough staff to cover the volume of guests. The bar attached was the best thing about the visit with great atmosphere and very good staff. Location is good being only 5 minutes from Newcastle city centre costing only a five in a taxi.
