Not large but beutifully appointed. Staff extremely helpful and high staff/guest ratio. Lovely area and views. Service is 5*. Bathroom towels refreshed twice a day.Without doubt though the highlight is the food , of Michelin quality. The chef is a star in the making. His lamb main and sticky toffee soufflé (!) dessert were exquisite. Service is very French as...

The Airds is a gem. It sits on a beautiful loch, and the wellies lined up at the door invite you to explore the shore if you want to go further than the pretty garden. The cooking is sublime, the food carefully sourced and beautifully presented. The dining room staff are charming, with a highly knowledgeable pride in the food...

Great in all respects. A welcome drink as we checked in, a large and well furnished bedroom. Bathroom spot on, with the hottest water I have ever found. Two comfortable sitting rooms , and a dining room with great views across the loch. Dinner was sublime, with good attentive service. Wines as one would expect are pricey but the selection...

We thought that our first visit to Airds was outstanding and wouldn't be beaten, however this last visit achieved dizzy heights! The quality of service is still second to none with the staff being both courteous and discreet. The chef excelled himself with the Crab Ravioli, and the trio of lamb was the finest lamb we have ever tasted. A...

Stayed five nights in May and feel a rating of good to very good is the best we can bestow given the rate charged. The aspect is stunning, room clean and comfortable and two small problems sorted immediately. The staff tried very hard but as one recent reviewer stated it all seemed a bit impersonal given the small size of...

This was my third visit to Airds. As before, my room was most comfortable, the food was excellent, and the staff helpful and efficient. One of the things I like most about Airds is how much can be done on foot. I arrived, parked my car, and didn't use it again until I departed five days later. Walks in Port...

If you've done any research, you'll realize soon that there are no other luxury hotels in this area. We did too, and so we booked two nights and enjoyed it, but we probably wouldn't stay here again. It is a Relais and Chateaux, but in our opinion, ranked far below most that we've stayed in around the world. Pros: -...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review and clearly there were aspects that you enjoyed about your stay and aspects where we did not meet your expectations which obviously we are very sorry about. There are however a couple of areas where I feel you have been rather unjust or inaccurate. When guests first arrive,...

Excellent food and service at the Airds Hotel, we found the two attic bedroom rooms a little on the small side, but acceptable of a couple of nights, the size of the rooms was not reflected in the room rate.

Thank you so much for your review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your short stay with us. The two rooms at the top of the hotel I agree are the smallest in the hotel but they do have the best views of the loch and mountains and for this reason they tend to be our most popular rooms...
