Mr & Mrs R – September 2016

My husband and I celebrated a special event with you along with 80 friends and family members on the above date. We must report to you that without exception everyone commented on how good the evening went. We know we put a great deal of thought into the planning, but the food was good, and the staff were superb. The staff who attended us on that evening were exceptional, attending to the needs of individual members of our group with both ease and affable demeanour which made everyone feel relaxed. As we were dancing we planned a light simple meal and we received many positive comments regarding the quality and quantity of the food. So our thanks to the catering team. We know they have to deal with many events at one time. From the very beginning of the evening and right to the end, the staff who attended us liaised and communicated well with us regarding our wishes on every aspect to make things go smoothly. We have been attending events at the Cairn ourselves for many years, however many of our guests were making their first visit from all over the country. Consequently many stayed overnight at the Cairn enjoying an excellent breakfast the following day. They loved the period features of the hotel, location and services provided. For our part it was a very successful evening, with an excellent dance floor, please give our thanks to everyone who was involved in whatever department of the hotel, for it made our special occasion one to remember not just for us but for a lot people. Thankyou

Mr T. Lewis – the best function hotel

Our club has been using The Cairn for many years now and, with the events team dealing with all our requests and all dealt with to our entire satisfaction, we knew our 180 strong group would be in for a fantastic weekend. A warm and very friendly welcome greeted our group on both days and with an excellent choice of food. All the styles of rooms were allocated to our group, and all with no complaints. It was the main lobby and bar area were the compliments came flooding in, just a brilliant ambience of this beautiful building. We used the Promenade Suite for our masquerade ball and the guys set the room exactly to our requests, the room was well heated for the arrival and the waiters and team leaders made sure our gala dinner was served hot and very promptly – to serve 180 with minimum breaks between courses deserves high praise, our feedback from members has been very good, 5 stars to the hotel and the lovely people working there.

Mr D Tandy – September 2015

I have just seen off my final house guests en route home to Australia, followed by another group returning to Anglesea. Some weekend. Many many thanks for your organisation on the day. The reception, catering ,bar and all staff are to be highly commended. We all greatly appreciated their efforts to make the day very special. Thank you to all concerned. I am about to take a short nap. I need it. But it was worth it ! Very grateful

E. Ascough – May 2015

I would just like to say a very big thank you following the success of my party in the Mountbatten Suite on Saturday. Please pass on my thanks especially to the Duty Manager on the night and the other gentleman on duty, whose name I did not get. They were both very attentive and looked after our needs superbly. Most of my guests have commented on the room and what a nice venue The Cairn was. I would most definitely recommend The Cairn as a venue for any functions if asked.
