We stayed Sunday night only. The deal was b&b and dinner on the Sunday night priced at £129. We arrived 3pm and where given a complimentary cuppa. On being shown to the room the staff were friendly and polite. We had a few drinks and decided to have our dinner before going for a snooze. The set menu didn't really... More

This was our fifth trip here and unfortunately our worst.we used to love the family feel to the restaurant.but since grace neils has closed it has become very busy which isnt a bad thing but has lost the personal touch which we used to enjoy. Even asking for a late drink as residents of the hotel we were refused without... More

I brought my sister here for a relaxing night away. I have eaten here many times including last New Year and we were not disappointed. The steaks were superb, the staff friendly & professional and the rooom with twin beds was olde worlde & comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back.

On arrival at the guest house for an overnight break away, I was immediately given a free upgrade by the manager. This is my 3rd time at Pier 36. The room I normally stay is is lovely but this one had a whirlpool bath of which I availed off twice, it was so good! The sea view is wonderful, especially... More

Stayed just the one night, steaks where gorgeous and staff friendly. Room was bit old fashioned but spotlessly clean. Lots of titanic themed decor so maybe its meant to feel dated. Anyhow cant fault the place, definitely worth 5 stars.

Dear hamsterboots, Thank you for taking the time to share your Pier 36 experience on Trip Advisor. We are especially proud of the steaks we serve, as we hang all our own meat, and it is great to get such positive feedback. Kind Regards More

From the moment Johnny greeted us we knew that this was going to be a pleasant stay. Rooms were spacious and prepared perfectly. The bar area was friendly and the restaurant was served well by many waitresses. But the food was excellent - no other word for it. Well worth a visit.

As the title says pier 36 rooms are exceptionally clean and spacious we had the drake room for one night and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The only problem we had with the room was that 2 of the bathroom lights didn't work making it very dark to shower/put make up on etc other than that it was great although... More
