A wonderful hotel in the perfect spot with superb friendly staff and the best food in Scotland. What more do you want! We spent a long weekend at Airds and enjoyed rather mixed weather which I suppose is to be expected on the west coast but it didn't matter as we just relaxed in the hotel and enjoyed talking to...

We stayed in the Master Suite for 2 nights. I didn't think the room was up to the standard you should expect when paying £500 (British pounds) per night. The website describes a pleasant view towards gardens from the balcony/terrace The view is mostly of the hotel car park and the promised platter of fruits was actually 2 oranges. We... More

The Airds is located in a beautiful and remote Scottish Highlands village by the sea. Great walks with terrific views. The rooms are a wee bit small, but the service and the food more than make up for it. The included dinner and full breakfast were the highlights - these are each beautifully presented 3-5 course delicious meals with impeccable... More

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.

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.
