Out of 830 listings in Britain’s leading independent UK hotels guide Airds is the only Scottish hotel of the ten elite properties selected for a César Award.
These are the acknowledged Oscars of hotel-keeping and reflect distinctive style and an exceptional standard of hospitality. According to the Guide: ‘…Shaun and Jenny McKivragan’s former ferry inn is a place for indulgence. Bedrooms have designer fabrics, Bulgari toiletries; dinner brings superb West Coast produce. Breakfast is exceptional.’
Named after celebrated hotelier César Ritz, the César Awards are based on visits by a team of experienced inspectors and reports from trusted readers. Hotels cannot pay for inclusion in The Good Hotel Guide and its inspectors do not accept free hospitality.
