“Anniversary treat”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Many thanks to all the staff at Airds Hotel for making our pearl wedding anniversary so special. The surroundings were superb and the staff very attentive and helpful. Food was outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a special occasion.

As others have said the hotel is in a stunning location by the side of the loch on a narrow winding road that goes past Castle Stalker. We stayed in the cottage out the back and really enjoyed the opportunity of self catering on some days and we had direct access to the garden.
We had a one very relaxing day watching DVDs from the extensive library whilst nibbling on snacks and the odd bottle of wine.
The menu in the restaurant is limited if your staying for a week however it is beautifully presented and served with finesse. The dining room lacks atmosphere which would be helped by some background music - also the window tables are wee bit warm as the sun blazes in.
The reception rooms are a great place for a pre-dinner drink as are the outside tables overlooking the loch.
Finally the staff are professional but very warm and friendly and made us feel right at home.

Room Tip: My preference is the 2 bedroom cottage in the garden which is quiet and spacious.

Excellent customer service, stunning food and breathtaking location. The perfect place to feel special.
Only two (small) points for improvement: a little bit more pressure on the shower would be nice and, maybe, some music in the dining room would relax slightly the atmosphere.

Would recommend it and would go back!

Stayed here the second night of married life,organised as a surprise.
On pulling up I didn't know what to expect but was blown away.
Food and accommodation faultless.
Staff very knowledgeable.
location very quiet but was exactly what we wanted.
Plan to return with my bike and a good book.
Ate at a Michelin Starred restaurant for 2 nights after and it just didn't have the same wow factor.
Can't stop raving about it.

Located right on the narrow road running along the Loch this looked more like a nice pub than a luxury hotel from the outside, but turned out to be a lovely property inside. We had a cosy room facing the Loch, with a wonderful bathroom and a nice comfy bed. A stuffed ram to be placed outside of the room served as the “Do not disturb” sign – a nice local touch. Dinner was EXCELLENT, there are several nice rooms downstairs for drinks (and/or reading) and the breakfast was probably the best we had during our week-long Scotland trip.
Now if the hotel could provide in-room slippers like every other hotel at that level there would be nothing to complain about!

We stayed at this hotel for one night over the Easter weekend April. Warm welcome, tastefully decorated and very comfortable room, bathroom with luxurious toiletries. Dinner was outstanding (incl vegetarian). Waiting staff polite, friendly, willing to chat but not intrusive. A delicious breakfast looking out over the loch left us wishing we could stay for longer. The handmade Easter Egg waiting for us in our (tidied) bedroom on our return was a lovely touch. We'll definitely recommend and return.

I have finally surcumbed to writing a review on trip advisor, and I have been inspired to do so by our stay at Airds.
It is small but that is part of what makes it so special. It really does feel like your own private space but with the advantage of everything being taken care of for you. The rooms are not especially large but are very comfortable and have everything you could want including wifi and an ipod dock. The bed was supremely comfortable - vi spring I´m told. The public rooms are cosy and sophisticated and service here is very attentive. Perhaps the highlight of our stay was the dinner but I am sufficiently moved by our experience I have done a separate restaurant review, so please see that for a little more detail - suffice to say the combination of exquisite food, perfect service and a view to die for made this a truly memorable meal.
Alas, our stay was all too short but we will certainly return next time we are on the west coast of Scotland. Airds has restored my faith in Scottish hospitality.

Room Tip: Go for a Superior for a little more space
