We escaped the kids for a 2 night stay in this beautifully located hotel. Room was comfortable, clean and warm. No kettle or fridge in the rooms but they will bring tea on request and you can opt for a morning call with tea / coffee at no charge. Dinner is a fine dining affair and delicious but if you...

This really is the perfect hotel as it provides everything we want in terms of great food, superb staff, get away from it all feel and total relaxation. They know how to treat guests at this hotel and everyone is referred to by their name and never asked their room number from what we observed. This is a personal hotel...

Thank you for your very kind review which is appreciated by both myself and all the staff.

Have just returned from The Airds Hotel after a fantastic 3 day visit. This is such a comfortable and beautifully situated hotel that It really should be on everyone's 'must visit' list. Wonderful food provided by a very imaginative Chef and served by such enthusiastic and delightful staff. Managers - Graeme, Mira and Cathy work so hard to look after...

Thank you for your review. Being fairly remote as we are, guests often ask whether there is much to do so I am delighted you brought this up. In addition to the obvious scenic drives which can be truly stunning in winter, there are also many walks, a superb cycle path and even a gondola ride up Aanoch Mor to...

We have just come back from another wonderful, relaxing stay at this fabulous hotel. As ever the staff were fantastic, the food exceptional and the room incredibly comfortable. It really is a perfect place to escape to and completely unwind - even the dog has come home relaxed!

Thank you for your excellent review. I am delighted you were so pleased with all aspects of the hotel as we put such efforts into the whole experience.

My wife and I spent a wonderful weekend at Airds recently and fell in love with it. The area is gorgeous, especially covered in snow. Chef John is a magician in the kitchen and I have to say the meals were some of the best we have had anywhere around the world. The room was very comfortable although not trendy....

Thank you for your review. In any hotel the team working in it are the most important asset regardless of whether it is a budget hotel or a 5* hotel as they are the ones that make a difference.

We loved this place, really lovely and welcoming staff, room was amazing with a balcony. Food was probably the best I have tried. The only thing I would say was that it was a wee bit formal before and during dinner and maybe too grown up for us. We are in our 30's and we were the youngest staying there...

Having stayed at Airds three times previously, albeit, always in the Summer months, we thought that we would stay there over New Year...a three night 'package' essentially. As previously, the staff were the highlight; generally very well trained, friendly but professional and proficient. Management had a much lower profile this time; we don't quite understand why, given the high cost...

It was our first time at The Airds, where we met several people who were 'regulars'. We stayed for several nights and the weather was crisp and only icy early morning so we were able to walk the routes recommended by the Hotel. The Hotel is traditional and comfortable but not 'trendy'. Our room was comfortable but not large, as...

Absolutely fantastic. Even though the weather was disappointing we really enjoyed every second. The food was delicious, as always, and the staff are wonderful. Even enjoyed the Scottish Dancing on New Years Eve! Very much looking forward to our next stay- and that includes Daisy the dog.
