Had a really lovely overnight stay in Airds Hotel Port Appin Scotland. The location is very picturesque and the view from our bedroom was beautiful. The room was very pretty and a nice big bathroom although I would have preferred a walk in shower as well as a bath. A nice touch was a complimentary local whiskey based drink in... More

We loved our stay here. It was some of the best food we have eaten. The service was impeccable and the room lovely. It even allows dogs which is great. We got engaged here so it is very special! We will be back. Highly recommended.

For people familiar with the Maine coast, the Airds Hotel is located in a tiny, but charming village reminiscent of Northeast Harbour. The residents tolerate the hotel because it is small, very well-managed and attracts affluent guests.The food is very good indeed: locally sourced, very fresh, and thoughtfully prepared without being ostentatious. The rooms are small but well appointed, and... More

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write such a lovely review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us, with the highlight perhaps being the food.

We have just returned from another visit to Airds. It was as good as ever. The staff, headed up by manager Graham, are wonderful. Service is discreet and no request is ever a problem.The food is incredible and I even managed to clear my plate- which is very unusual! Great ingredients and an attention to detail.

I'd heard about Airds for 30 years before staying there. It's as exceptional as I had heard. Outstanding service; great rooms, thoughtful amenities, and impeccable public areas. The surrounding landscape and gardens aren't bad either. Probably it's best feature, however, is the restaurant: absolutely fabulous meals. A first-rate establishment in all respects.

Once in a great while, it's possible to find inns that combine a magnificent setting, top quality food and very attentive, friendly staff which results in a memorable stay. My wife and I found during a two night stay in early June that the Airds Hotel is indeed one of these special places. After leaving the A828, a winding single... More

No tea and coffee in the room is a big miss. And a very dry cooked breakfast for the price is just not on. Needs new management. Just turning down the bed at night is not value for money. They should go back to basics and reduce the price.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us, Mr and Mrs Douglas. I am delighted that you enjoyed the view which we believe is one of the best views from a UK hotel and can be viewed from the bedroom and bathroom of the room that you occupied. I am disappointed that the lack of... More

Many years ago, when I was a child, one could stay in this inn for about £15 a week. It was then transformed into a world class dining experience with comfortable rooms, fantastic service and delightful views. It has deservedly collected numerous AA Rosettes and Michelin Stars and a reputation for prices to match. However, I can let you into... More

Spent a couple of nights at the airds and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Fantastic friendly service, superb food and stunning location which all made for a relaxing well needed break. Rooms have everything you need or could possibly want and are real luxury. Could highly recommend and will be back!

We stopped here for just one night on a recent trip up to the Hebrides, making our decision based on the Trip Advisor reviews.
