Do not enter the bar or meal area if you are not a local. The locals spoke at the top of their voices about how stupid tourists are and put coats on their chairs so we could not sit down. We could not wait to leave.

We booked this at short notice after a couple of very rainy nights in a tent! Didn't see it advertised on any of the usual websites which was lucky for us as most places were fully booked. The room was small but clean and comfortable, the photos give the impression of much larger rooms, clever photography there! ! Breakfast was... More

Only sorry that we had only 2 nights in Portree at the Pier Hotel. It has a lot going for it: right on the harbour, available street parking, wifi worked in our room on second floor & a short walk to the shops. Although the hotel bar is small & full of locals, you'll find someone to chat with. Breakfast... More

Loved this place! It's right on the bay and every room overlooks the water. Breakfast was wonderful and, although the room was small, it was clean and pretty. The rock beach in front of the hotel is full of sea glass just waiting to be picked. Just watch out for the seagulls!! I would definitely go back again!

A fantastic view of the bay and boats from our window, very special, and the price was inexpensive compared to most of the other accommodation in the area, which is all very expensive. But the room was so small that only one person could move around at a time, the bathroom was tiny too - but it was comfortable and... More

We could only book our two night stay on Skye at the last minute for various reasons, and were surprised to find most hotels in Portree, where we wanted to stay, were fully booked for mid-May. The Pier Hotel in Portree was one which didn’t feature on any of the usual booking sites, so a phone call was required, but... More

This is a quaint, wee gem of a hotel. Located with beautiful, peaceful views overlooking Portree harbour, we had a very pleasant stay here. We arrived via the small pub attached and had a lovely couple of pints... Found the owners to be friendly and chatty, the hotel is small so the place has a real local feel, banter flowing... More

This hotel was not one of our good memories of our scotland trip, unfortunatly, cause there are many people positive. We didnt felt welcome at all ,surprisingly, cause so far the Scottish people were sooo kind! But this man, showed us he certainly didnt had his day, or even liked his job.. We came inside, said Good afternoon and got... More

Portree is a charming little town. It is centrally-situated for your visit to Skye which has got to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. I suggest you stay for more than a day in case the weather turns Scottish.... The Pier Hotel was a delight. Reception is at the bar, and the staff were delightful,... More
