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. The service is discreet but totally professional. The food is absolutely superb. The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and incredibly comfortable. If...

In September we stayed at this hotel and had the most fabulous time. It took us about 2 hours from Glasgow but well worth the journey driving through incredible scenery. The setting is stunning, the service is first class and nothing is any trouble, the general manger sorting out our ferry crossing to Mull. The rooms are delightful and the...

Thank you for mentioning the island of Mull. For me this is a must see on the west coast what with Tobermory (also known as Balamory), Duart Castle, the island of Iona with its beautifully formed abbey and Staffa Island with its puffins and the famous Fingals Cave. Its a comfortable day trip from Airds. I am delighted you enjoyed...
