Myself and my wife managed to get a last minute booking to the Airds Hotel in Port Appin last Saturday, which turned out to be one of the most magical nights away we have had . We were made to feel welcome upon arrival and nothing was too much for any of the staff. We proceeded to have the afternoon... More

if your looking for total luxury, wonderful food, picturesque scenery with amazing sunsets, then you wont be disappointed by what you get at the Airds Hotel. 11 bespoke bedrooms, you are made to feel as though it is your own home and the staff are probably some of the best we have ever met. We are back in October and... More

Wonderful, small hotel. Quiet, elegant, excellent personal service; beautifully placed in the northwest Scottich highlands, south of Oban. Food is excellent. It is a little out ot the way (good and bad).

This lovely luxury small hotel has everything we wanted and more. As the weather was so nice, we sat in the garden overlooking the loch along with afternoon tea. The hotel is very classy, from the moment you arrive, the friendly greeting makes you feel at home and everywhere is just like a nice country house. Our room was very... More

The Airds Hotel has so many things going for it: a friendly, well-trained staff; superb food; comfortably updated rooms; a great location in a small lochside village...the list can be extended. I spent a week here and enjoyed not only these attributes, but also day trips to nearby islands -- Lismore, Mull, and Iona. I look forward to returning.

Once great under the previous owners, now very average and expensive. Food good but not as good as before and no sign of any management around on my visit. There are so many other places now in a similar price bracket that are miles ahead and I am truly sorry to see this once great unique haven fall from grace.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us and we are sorry that it did not meet your expectations. We are obviously disappointed when we receive a review, which is different from our normal positive feedback for both the food and the service. The previous owners actually moved on nearly 12 years ago and since... More

Just had our fourth trip to this hotel and it continues to deliver a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food seems to get better every year. There can be few dining rooms in the world with a comparable view. A lovely place for a relaxing couple of days. Long may it continue.

We have just spent 4 nights at the Airds hotel and feel we must go into print. The hotel deserves all the accolades it receives. Great position, lovely rooms but above all, outstanding food and service. The dining room looks out across the Loch and the setting just compliments the food that the maestro chef produces. Fresh local produce, bursting... More

We have just stayed at the Airds hotel for a 2 night anniversary break and can honestly say it is a fantastic place to spend your time to enjoy yourself and unwind. We stayed in the Junior Suite which we were upgraded to on arrival. This suite was immaculate and had everything we would need as well as the bed... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in March in a suite with lovely loch views. The wee carafe of complementary whisky/ginger wine in our room when we arrived and before dinner on the 2nd evening was very welcome and tasted wonderful. For dinner on the first night we picked from the main menu choosing scallops followed by beautifully cooked venison.... More
