I would think twice before choosing as a destination wedding unless you like cold food, poor lighting, bad attitudes and dangerous situations for walking and driving. It is not the place for older folks or anyone to walk at night. The employee attitudes are terrible. Keep aneye on your belongings or they may end up in lost and found or the mud.
For what they charge one would think you could open the shower door without knocking into the sink.

Too bad because the setting is beautiful.

From the sleeping rooms, to the meeting rooms, to the food to the billing and the final payment of concessions one of the worst experiences I've had as a seasoned planner. Very disappointed. Hard to get anyone on the phone. And it's taken almost 5 months to close the meeting out. Unacceptable.

I have a good bit of travel logged this year... if you're looking for purely opulent, this may not be for you. However, if you're the kind of person that appreciates simply good service and staff and a quietly beautiful property this is the choice stay in this region.
Pretty grounds. Every interface with the staff was perfect. I rode the bikes (supplied by the center) on the property early Sunday, deer, wild turkey, swans...
Breakfast, included, was great, with again attentive service.
Couldn't say enough here...

I booked Airlie as a weekend escape from the city over Labor Day weekend and we couldn't have been happier with the decision. The grounds are beautiful, the breakfast in the morning is excellent, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff (especially Molly at the front desk!!!) is very friendly and helpful. There are also a lot of great hikes and wineries in the area. I've already recommended Airlie to several of my clients and friends and I hope to make a trip back soon.

My initial hope was to enjoy a lovely "get a way" weekend with my husband. We took advantage of a Living Social special that showcased tranquil surroundings, first rate accommodations and what appeared to be delicious food. Sadly none of the above were to be found. While the surroundings were tranquil, you could also tell they were in need of repair. The water ways were stagnate with gray/green foam, the rooms - well I'm still looking for anything that looked like the rooms shown on line and as far as the availability of food - not readily available. The comp breakfast from 7:30 to 9:30 never replenished and was dried out by 9:00. The staff was mostly friendly, however we had a terrible time getting into our room. We were given keys that did not open the first two rooms we were assigned to and after waiting in the open area of the Lodge for 25 minutes finally a representative showed up to chastise us for being in the wrong building. She later found out we were in the right building, just given the wrong room number TWICE. Buyer Beware, this was NO DEAL. All in all I would have rather stayed home

We hope that in the near future you will give us another chance to give you the best experience possible here at Airlie.

We went to Airlie for a 2 night weekend retreat and were so pleased with the grounds and service. The campus itself is a stunning natural beauty with so much to enjoy. We loved the complimentary bicycles and spent at least an hour or two each day on them exploring the center, including the on-site farm and rolling hillside. Our room, in the Lodge, was very comfortable and a decent size. We also enjoyed taking our coffee outside in the mornings on the covered patio. The formal and butterfly gardens were beautiful, and the free pool table in the game room was a lot of fun. If your looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to retreat then this is definitely it.

Room Tip: Go for a room in the Lodge or Carriage house. If you have a little extra to spend, or a family, chec...

I stayed at Airlie in May over my wedding weekend, and while the actual wedding wasn't at Airlie, the majority of the guests stayed there for the weekend. Airlie went above and beyond to accommodate both individual requests as well as my requests around grouping people near each other. We had an incredible point of contact Brittany who helped us on a near daily basis leading up to the event.

We also really enjoyed their dining options, as they set up a great buffet lunch for us over by the Smokehouse, which was a great place to spend the afternoon. Other things I and other guests enjoyed was a very accommodating late night staff as well as the bikes to get around.

The only thing they could do better is their reservations systems, and making it easier to book rooms online, but I was told they were planning on doing this as they cater more to leisure travel and not all conferences.

All in all the weekend was exactly what we imagined, and I would highly recommend this venue for any large party.

Room Tip: The Silo House is the best building for large parties.
