The Cairndale Hotel & Leisure Club have plenty of admirers on TripAdvisor. This is what a couple of recent visitors had to say:
‘Nice hotel in good location. We had a honeymoon suite with four poster bed and had an excellent time there. Great staff and lovely food. Would make an excellent base for time spent exploring Dumfries.’
‘Great hotel. We have just enjoyed a great 5 day stay at The Cairndale Hotel, (our third visit). The hotel was extremely busy but we still received excellent service from helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Food at The Cairndale was as good as ever and we had a hearty breakfast each morning. Our evening meals in the Reivers Restaurant were quite special and we were served with well presented, tasty and high quality fare. There is no doubt we will return for another visit and hopefully very soon.’
