Family Hotel Rooms
The Airds is a great place for a traditional family holiday, with a myriad of activities to do either at the hotel or close by. There are an abundance of forest walks and cycling adventures as well as horse riding, pony trekking, kayaking, indoor climbing and so much more. Local attractions include the Scottish Seal Sanctuary (a 15 minute drive) and the Heritage Centre on the small Isle of Lismore, a short ferry ride from the hotel. Equally take the ferry to Mull for the day which is a very popular day out for families. There are more details of 'family activities' on our activities page.
Make it a magical break by taking a ride on the Jacobite steam train on the Glenfinnan viaduct where parts of the route to Mallaig were used extensively in the filming of the ‘Harry Potter’ films ‘The Chamber of Secrets’ and the ‘Prisoner of Azkaban’. Parents can enjoy a child-friendly holiday and have a wonderful time themselves.
Children are most welcome at the Airds. Both Suites have a sofa bed and a number of bedrooms can accommodate an extra bed or cot. Children sharing with their parents will be charged £37.50 per night including breakfast with meals/high tea being charged as taken. A nominal charge of £10.00 per day will be charged for the use of our cot in the hotel bedrooms.
Children under 9 are not permitted in the restaurant after 7.30pm. However, high tea can be provided by prior arrangement at a cost of £25.00 per child per night.
Babysitting can be arranged at prior notice.
Both the Master Suite and Loch Suite have a sofa bed in the lounge area which are suitable for two children or one adult.
One of our Superior rooms (Room 24) also has a sofa bed whilst two others are large enough to fit in a child's bed reasonably comfortably. The Junior Suite can also accommodate an additional small bed comfortably. All rooms can accommodate a cot with the exception of the Standard loch view room.
You may also wish to consider our two cottages, Bramble Cottage and The Old Smithy, both very suitable for families and groups of friends.
Please contact the hotel for more information or guidance, on which room would best suit your own particular circumstances.
