We spent 3 fabulous nights at Airds, and it was faultless. It is a perfect combination of luxury, comfort and relaxation. The food is some of the best we have ever eaten. The menu was varied and every dish was perfectly prepared and presented. The staff are professional and charming, and nothing is a problem. We had a beautiful room... More

The pictures on the website do not show that the road is just at the front of the hotel with the garden the other side of the road, however after 2 minutes you realise that the hotel chairs and tables are there because the road is extremely quiet and it doesn't cause any deterioration in the enjoyment of this hotel....

Visited The Airds for lunch whilst on a visit to Port Appin. Had read reviews before, which were all really good so I thought we'd give it a try. The hotel is beautifully maintained and oozes quality as soon as you step inside. The staff were polite and attentive, and the food was excellent. Just one thing to consider though.... More

Port Appin is a pretty sidetrack on the Oban-Glencoe road or if you are planning on visiting Lismore Island. The detour to Port Appin also provides an excellent view of Castle Stalker from the south. We stopped at the Airds Hotel and, on its grassy terrace in the early morning sun, had a very pleasant coffee served by a charming... More

The Airds is an exquisite hotel right along the west coast of Scotland. There is close attention to detail from the room furnishings to the warm and inviting living room, to the flowers in the restaurant, to the Wedgewood china for tea. If you want to be pampered and to have an amazing stay, do choose the Airds. Its tucked... More

This property is located in a beautiful, peaceful setting and offers the highest quality of service and food. The decor is quite fresh and lovely. Take the short walk by the bay to unwind and enjoy water vistas.

You are unlikely to stumble across the Airds hotel on a country trip or drive. A little bit of research shows how good this place looks but once you are actually there and taste the fabulous food and are looked after by the attentive staff you realise just how good it is.

After many years we have at last managed to return to The Airds Hotel for a four night break. Why did we wait so long? Service, food, rooms, staff, comfort, welcome etc are all very good.

"The Airds" is serenely tucked away off the "main" Fort William to Oban road on a short single track (with passing places) road to Port Appin. It is SO well worth coming off the main road. Port Appin itself is a small "annexe" to Appin village itself. Apart from the view, The Airds is the highlight of Port Appin. It... More
