We were traveling with two small dogs and misunderstood when booking that the dogs are actually only allowed in the room and in the conservatory (where you cannot really sit in fall or winter) but not in the - really nice - lounge, so we had a bad start. Eventually the owner compromised (refusing to cancel) that we could sit... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights in November at the Hotel. The food was excellent, and the staff efficient and friendly. A roaring log fire to greet us after our outings was most welcome. With blue skies and a flat-calm loch to look at, there was no reason to be anywhere other than in Scotland!

We have just spent the weekend at Airds and it did not disappoint. The service, food, staff and rooms were fantastic and the beds were super comfy. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and am looking forward to returning.

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights to celebrate her birthday. Beautiful lounge areas with open fires and a lovely bedroom make this place a very comfortable place to stay.

We hadn't explored the area around Oban and chose the Airds Hotel for an overnight stay at the start of October '14. Simply, it was a fantastic experience. The seven course tasting menu plus wine package was a real highlight. We have had tasting menus in Michelin star restaurants before and this was superior. The scallops and venison courses showed...

I'm almost afraid to write about this hotel as I'm afraid they might not have a room the next time we want to go. Airds is everything we want in a holiday hotel.

Only stopped for lunch but service and food was excellent. Weather was at its Scottish best (worst) but was still a great little spot to visit. Rosettes and reviews deserved. Can't comment on accommodation but restaurant, lounge and loos well appointed and clean.
