What a wonderful surprise! Excellent food at a good price (£25 for 3 courses) - the cod was perfect! Decent wine, fabulous views and lovely staff completed a great lunch. Well worth seeking out. We are going back next week!

From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. This is an incredibly well managed hotel with such friendly staff who seemed to anticipate your needs and a restaurant with the best food we have ever had in Scotland or possibly even further afield (and we have travelled a lot). The attention to detail is incredible and this, combined with the...

We visited Airds for a relaxing winter break. We last visited nearly 10 years ago and we wished we had not left it so long to return. Airds for us is perfect, great service, fantastic food and a very personal attention to detail by all of the staff. From the welcome Prosseco in the comfortable lounge to arranging bikes for...

I booked a three night break,for a special birthday surprise for my partner.

Thank you for reviewing the hotel, but I have to say that my recollection (and that of my staff) of the points you make could not really be more different to yours. Given you have chosen to review us on more than one site, I feel that it is important to state the viewpoint of the staff at the hotel....

A most delightful 2 day visit to Airds makes one appreciate how much effort must go into achieving the amazing standards of every department here. The hotel commands the most stunning views of Loch Linnhe and the surrounding mountains and there surely cannot be a finer view from a Dining Room anywhere. Chris Stanley and his talented team create the...

A wholly nice place to stay in tranquil and traditional style of service, par excellence. We enjoyed the food and ambience of this small hotel, located in such a beautiful area. The food was excellent. It is quite expensive but what would expect from a small place that strives to deliver quality. We hope to return.
