We have stayed in Airds many times and always look forward to coming back. The experience is so 5*in every aspect. The food is to die for! The ingredients are first class, and the Chef consistently produces mouth watering dishes, with beautiful presentation. The whole Hotel is spotless. The Staff are obviously very well trained, always pleasant, courteous, and can... More

Everything you would hope for from a small scottish hotel that is in an idillic west coast location. Immaculate room, staff who are wonderfully attentive, well trained and where nothing is too much trouble. And as for the food; the best of scottish produce thoughtfully and beautifully presented In a dining room with one of the best views in Scotland.... More

I am torn writing this review as most of the existing reviews one reads cannot praise the Airds enough.My wife and I were staying nearby and, in view of the good reports we thought we would try the Sunday lunch at £18.95 per person. The three courses which we were served all tasted very nice but frankly my view was... More

So if you want the special experience in one of the loveliest spots on the earth, Airds Hotel is it! We stumbled upon Airds after a disastrous situation curtesy of our booking agent and this ended up being a prime example of something good coming from something bad!

Away down a winding track outside Oban, this place sucks you in with its old fashioned charm and peace. Yes it is something from a bygone era with its chintzy rooms, whisky Mac on arrival and 70s style dining room but it is truly delightful. The staff are friendly, quite formal but really keen to give you great service. On... More

Thank you very much for your positive review. We have to run a narrow path between ensuring we appeal to our existing customers, some of whom are looking for a more traditional atmosphere and décor and new customers who want a more modern feel. Only you can determine whether we have been successful or not. Our restaurant is a good... More

We went to the Airds Hotel Restaurant for dinner last week. This was a classy experience from beginning to end. We were asked to come 30 minutes before our booking time, and we were taken to the fireplace room where we had a leisurely pre-dinner drink while looking at the menu. Once our table and appetizer was ready, we were... More

Thank you for your review.
