Funny little place right on the harbor. Our twin room (the only twin they have) was up a winding staircase and barely had room to turn around. No reception desk, you check in at the downstairs bar, which seems to be popular. The gal who helped us to our room carried BOTH of our suitcases up the stairs. It was... More

Myself and a friend wandered into this bar for a drink and we were both verbally abused by the barmaid moments after buying our drinks. The barmaid was drinking behind the bar, was clearly very drunk and was being extremely exhibitionist and annoying everyone in the bar. She decided it was appropriate to immediately announce to everyone in the bar... More

We had a tiny room at the top of the building which I think is an attick room in the UK. It was very old hotel with narrow stairs. To get to the stairs to your room you had to go through the restaurant. No help with luggage and no where to park a car. It's on the marina which... More

Staying here was very much a last resort, and my room slept four, so was quite expensive. It might have slept four, but I'd not want to be four people using it as the shower room was minuscule with barely enough room to stand in. It did have a great view out over the harbour, though. I just used the... More

We spent three nights at the Pier Hotel in July. The location was the draw - right on the harbour, but it was also a slight inconvenience because parking was difficult to find near the hotel. The room was average, the bathroom small & slightly dingy, but the view of the harbour was a fair trade-off. The bar below, which... More

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!
