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... More

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!

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.... More

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... More

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... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and it is always pleasing to receive lovely comments.

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... More

Thank you very much for your review and I am delighted you enjoyed your stay so much. Whilst our three night Christmas Package is tried and tested we always make a point of reviewing it each year and make any necessary tweaks to improve it for the next year and it would appear these have been a success.

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.

We have just had the opportunity to have had lunch here...I can not recommend this place any more higher....you must visit! From our arrival to when we departed we were well looked after in everyway. Spotlessly clean tableware and cutlery and a very nice wine list. We had the set lunchtime menu and we can not believe the value for... More

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!
