The staff were all very friendly and looked well after us - the food was amazing - just perfect - we had the tasting menu - paired with various wines - just loved it. Our room was very cosy with a beautiful...

Thank you for writing such lovely review and it was a pleasure to welcome you back to The Airds after 8 years. We are equally delighted that you will not be waiting another 8 years before returning!

I booked a three night break,for a special birthday surprise for my partner. The hotel was spotless when we arrived,and the staff where friendly enough,but being a 4 star rating I wasn't expecting the standards to slip. Well on the second day of our arrival,I went to the reception and was greeted by a less friendly gentleman,whom I believe was...

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.

We arrived for Dinner at Airds to be met by the Maître d., guided to the lounge and offered a glass of Champagne. Whilst I don’t usually partake, it was Christmas.

Thank you so much for such a glowing review which certainly made the Chef's day! They all work so hard to not only source as much local produce as possible but to then translate that produce to bring the very best to the plate.
