We got the tasting menu because the individual elements sounded so interesting. Usually we avoid tasting menus, because it's overdone, with too much food. This was perfectly proportioned, however, with each element done to perfection. I especially liked the passion fruit mousse. This was followed...More

Our travel agent made the grievous error of thinking that this “luxury hotel” would be good for us. First, it’s a bed-and-breakfast, and you have to like those. Second, it’s out in the middle of nowhere – – albiet, beautiful nowhere, but nowhere nonetheless. If...More

We had what is best described as an uncomfortable evening at Airds. The restaurant is stuck in the past and the head waitress ‘maitre d’ stifles the experience of the guests by applying too much formality. The staff are given continual instructions covering table requirements,...More

My wife and I ate here for her birthday, the food was very nice as was service although we enjoyed our meal it all felt a bit “stiff” slightly regimented..? But still we would give it another try.

A Romantic Candlelit Restaurant serving locally sourced food using the best ingredients. Specialising in local seafood, the restaurant has held 3 rosettes for over 20 years and is one of the longest serving restaurants to be featured in the Good Food Guide, with a current rating of 6. Stunning views front the restaurant, of Loch Linnhe and the Morvern mountains and amazing sunsets can be seen, especially during the summer months. In the Spring and Summer it is also possible to enjoy morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea sitting in the garden, again with spectacular views. The hotel is open for morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. Coffee, lunch and tea are all available in the lounges, bar area, conservatory or in the garden. Dinner may be enjoyed either in the candlelit restaurant or in the conservatory with the ever changing scenery enjoyed in both.
