We booked a week before arrival, room only. On arrival we were welcomed by a very happy and welcoming owner. Room 10 upstairs with rear view was dated, the bed was not comfortable, mattress was ready for replacement. There was no breathtaking view, just overlooking the roof of an outbuilding. But we were only there for 1 night and didn't... More

Doesn't look to welcoming from the outside but very friendly welcome, and a big room with a all you want, flat TV, modern bathroom and a nice view. Dinner is offered but we went to the next pub, the strone inn, which was nice and cosy and good.

Very nice guest house with large, clean and recently renovated rooms. The Owner is extremely nice and hospitable and the breakfest was very good. The only downside is the location, which is a bit far from Dunoon (about 15-20 minutes by car), but in return you get a quiet and peacefull room with loch view.

Booked a last minute room and so very glad we chose what is now called the Pier Hotel and Café Bistro. A well deserved name change. A small hotel with only 6 rooms. Our room was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. The hotel has a gallery and has an arty feel throughout. Dinner was excellent and freshly cooked and breakfast... More

We booked this hotel for four days at short notice 'out of season' - it's an older hotel which the new owners are renovating as they go along. I generally echo the remarks made by 'Weegie Glasgow'. We found the welcome to be very friendly and helpful, with nothing too much trouble. The food was excellent, hot and freshly cooked.... More

The Pier Guest House is a nice clean establishment with a very pleasant bistro overlooking the loch. The food was good and the owner Ian, was very pleasant and helpful giving us advice about the area. The bedroom was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We also had an excellent breakfast which set us up for the day. Overall... More
