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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Thank you for your review.
