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

Fantastic hotel on the harbour in Portree with warm, wecoming staff and great food. At night you can watch the sea otters feeding on the harbour astairs outside the hotel. The great staff will advise you on all the worthwhile trips available on the water.

This was the last hotel/B&B of our island trip and was perfect. We stayed next door in the green building on the ground floor. Felt like a home from home. Room was spacious and clean with a view out to the harbour which was lively to wake up to in the morning. Breakfast was lovely and one of the few... More

We were a group of 7 adults aged 43 to 62 travelling on 5 motorcycles around Scotland. We stayed at the Pier Hotel for 2 nights midweek. We had 2 rooms a quad and a triple, which were clean, tidy and with views across the bay. Parking near the hotel was limited, but patience is a virtue as around 5.30pm... More

I stayed here on a Scotland trip with my brothers. We were the only customers since it was early March and apparently that is not really high season. Lovely location on the pier. The room was okay, it has a harbour view but with three big beds in it and small windows, you don't really notice it even though you... More

Great spot to stay, nice views of the harbour. The rooms were clean and modern. Breakfast was great. Hot and cold options were available. Parking is an issue as limited spots to park on the Pier. Luckily for us we found a car park near enough.

I stayed here this past October and fell in love with not just Portree and Skye, but this little hotel. While the rooms are a little small they're well appointed, have everything I could have possibly needed and (my room at least) had a great view out over the harbour. Waking up to that every day was a joy. If... More

I stayed at Pier Hotel with a friend last september and we loved it! Great location and views, friendly helpful staff, nice bar, excellent breakfast. It was a nice surprise. The room was basic, but very comfy. We got more that what we pay for!

We stayed over on a Friday night, had our dinner and enjoyed an very nice evening in the bar. Kat is a great host, open, honest and forthright, if these are qualities you don't like you may be in the wrong place. Findlay and Joyce are great with the owner Donald being on hand for us the team just works.... More
