Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We sampled the Airlie Arms two fish and chips for 20 Tuesday offer. The fish was flaky, moist with puffy beer batter, lovely crispy chips and homemade tartare sauce- would definitely recommend. Fantastic value - will be back. Thanks to our server Summer for great service.

Excellent hotel and location. Beds are really comfy and rooms are large. Food at the pub is absolutely delicious, I highly recommend the breakfast. All the staff are friendly and very helpful, nothing was to much trouble. Would not hesitate to stay again.

One of the nicest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. So comfortable and welcoming. The room was modern and bright and really clean. Having access to extra tea/coffee and milk was such a brilliant idea (it’s on a tray in the corridor). Staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic! A highlight of our time in Kirriemuir.

I absolutely cannot fault any aspect of the Airlie Arms! We were attempting to travel to Glasgow from Aberdeen but were caught up in a storm, so decided to see if we could find somewhere to stay for the night. We got ourselves to Kirriemuir and received the warmest welcome at the Airlie Arms, even though we hadn't booked in advance. It's dog friendly, reasonably priced and our room was very big and comfortable, so we were delighted before we even went through to the bar for dinner but things got even better there. The service we received from Summer was outstanding. On what must have been a stressful night for the staff with a number of stranded travellers appearing in addition to locals out for dinner, we were treated like we'd been going there for years. Any time we needed anything, Summer was there with a big smile and a recommendation (trust her and try the squid - even my seafood hating partner loved it!) I will also always remember her advice that "now is not the time for salad" was completely correct and will live by this mantra from now on! Thank you all so much for a wonderful stay, brilliant hospitality and excellent food. We're planning to return when it's not dark and wet, and will definitely stay here again.

Been visiting the Airlie Arms since April 2023 on taking a pitch at a local caravan site. Wandered in to the Arms and decided to try the food. OMG it was outstanding the 1st time and hasn't dissapointed on every other visit. 1st class presentation, reasonably priced, excellent service and brilliant staff. Very friendly and eager to help. Can't praise the place enough. Keep up the great work folks...

This was our 2nd stay,. The first stay was pleasant and a nice clean room within the hotel. We booked for a 2 night stay £162 on booking.com we was showed to our room which was down an alley in the outbuildings. The room was freezing, damp and dirty. We asked for a heater which they gave us. But after showing the room to family they too agreed that the room wasn't up to standard. The carpet was filthy, cracked plug socket. The bathroom was old and dated, mould around the bath. Also the shower gel was leaking onto the bath and that had set hard which shows it hadn't been cleaned. We did ask to move rooms and we did thankfully. I was also bitten not sure what with though.

First class! Had a weekend stay, rooms are comfortable, staff very friendly, breakfast choice was great. This place is a little gem and would thoroughly recommend booking. Ate in the restaurant both nights, food and choice was magnificent.

We just had a wonderful couple of nights stay at the Airlie Arms. The food was excellent, and we were pleased with how reasonably priced the bar was. The room was perfect for all of us, and we felt like we got great value for our stay. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, making us feel right at home. The location was ideal, allowing us to explore and enjoy our family time together. We all had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend the Airlie Arms for a lovely family getaway.

Booked an overnight stay while travelling across Scotland, nice hotel bang in the middle of town. Ate here at night with a few drinks, good food with a nice atmosphere. Service was great and the breakfast in the morning was excellent. Sets you up for the day ahead.
