Having never stayed at Airds we were in great anticipation as its reputation is so good. I have to say it exceeded our expectations. The staff are so attentive and friendly but seem to know when to disappear. The food is very good, even exceptional considering it hasn't got a Michelin star - yet. Our bedroom had a view of...

We are so pleased that we exceeded your expectations of the hotel, especially as you say, they were so high to begin with. This is quite an achievement and we are grateful for your lovely comments.

I will just write about the hotel here and will put a separate entry in the restaurant section. Wow, I have stayed in many smart hotels in my time but Airds is right up there with the best - so much so that I have decided to do a trip advisor review for the first time. The hotel is modest...

Had a superb afternoon tea here today. Beautifully presented and tasting delicious. We had the lounge to ourselves, full of comfy chairs and elegant sofas with a roaring log fire. The attention to detail was fantastic and the gentleman who greeted and served us was lovely, very attentive but not hovering. This hotel is in a beautiful location with great...

Lovely hotel with wonderful food and beautiful views. However, what sets this hotel apart from so many other wonderful places was the fabulous service. We spent three weeks touring Scotland and Ireland staying in exquisite hotels. This hotel had the best service of all. The service was seamless, like things just occurred. The staff is wonderful, but it was more...

This small hotel sits in a lovely spot overlooking Loch Linnhe. The rooms are of variable size and position, but are very well appointed with lots of little extras, including a small decanter of whisky mac! The staff are very attentive and chatty, but do not hover at all. They always keep an eye open to see what is needed,...

Thank you for such a terrific review and for such lovely compliments. We feel at Airds that we are hopefully all about attention to detail and personal yet unobtrusive service, and from your comments it looks as though we are achieving this, so a big thank you for that vote of confidence. Being a relatively small luxury hotel it is...

Had the most relaxing weekend I can remember. Home from home and soufflé to die for. Rooms are beautiful and the beds are unbelievably comfortable. Staff could not do enough for us and I would highly recommend this perfect hotel for a short stay.

I was lucky enough to have stayed here 28 years ago. I loved it so much that I swore I would return. Celebrating 25 years of marriage was a good excuse. This is a wonderful, intimate, warm hotel.
