We have just spent 4 nights at the Pierhouse in a sea facing room. We had a wonderful time in Port Appin and loved the views and comings and goings around the pier. The staff were mostly welcoming and obliging, the little residents lounge was lovely and the beds were comfortable. We felt that the prices in the restaurant and... More

Just spent a week in Port Appin and frequented the Pierhouse on a few occasions. A quick lunch of very tasty skink and sandwich, hot chocolates after a walk in the rain, a couple of pints to refresh after cycling on Lismore and finally end of holiday dinner of the seafood platter; exquisite mussels, fine scollops and mixture of quality...

We have been visiting The Pierhouse, mainly to dine, for the last 18 years or so. We've always had a great time- a cosy old pier-master's house, looking directly at the pier- and beyond to the Island of Lismore and the mountains.And then there's the friendly staff who make The Pierhouse work. And then there's the food and drink- this... More

We went as a family of 7 for Sunday lunch. It is a very enjoyable meal in a lovely setting. The staff were very attentive from the minute we arrived and the food was to a very high standard. We will eat here again.

We'd been looking forward to this visit for nearly two years - we know this part of the world well but we'd never actually stayed at The Pierhouse Hotel before. We really enjoyed the restaurant and the location is excellent in any weather. The staff were absolutely spot-on too so we were happy with that aspect. Unfortunately we felt that... More

Thank you for your review in which you stated many nice, positive aspects about the hotel, the food and the staff. For this we are most grateful. However, the one aspect you were not happy about was the price of the bedroom for Bed and Breakfast. Under normal circumstances I would take this on the chin and accept, grudgingly your... More

My cousin and I stayed from 25th March till the 28t. To say that we were happy is an under statement the staff and food was fabulous, and the bedroom was great looking over the loch we are already saving for next year !!!! Marilyn & Sue

On our visits to the Pierhouse we have found such tranquility - together with roaring fires, a great ambience - and delicious food (notably, seafood) and drink. There's a lovely hour-long circular walk from the Pierhouse - and of course there are the wonderful views.

Tranquility, roaring fires, great ambience, delicious food and hopefully a blissful night's sleep and excellent service are really what we endeavour to achieve for everyone who stays here at The Pierhouse. It is a delight to read your review and we will very much hope to see you here again sometime in the not too distant future. Best wishes Nick More

My husband first took me to the Pierhouse 17 years ago and we've returned every other year since. It has been my favourite hotel and restaurant in Scotland since that first time as the setting is idyllic. We stayed there on Friday 27th March however we were both extremely disappointed in the presentation of the food. We both had oysters... More

Thank you for your review although I am very disappointed by some of your comments which I wish to discuss. First of all I am extremely sorry that you were not entirely happy with all aspects of your stay although the issue that you mention would appear to be the presentation of the food rather than the quality. Starting on... More

After a long and twisting drive through some breathtaking scenery we were delighted to find this place, wood burning fires and welcoming staff, topped off by fantastic fresh seafood overlooking the island of Lismore, would highly recommend .

My husband and I spent a very relaxing weekend at the Pierhouse (27th-28th Feb). The setting is idyllic as you will see from some of the photographs already posted. On arrival we received a warm welcome and we were immediately shown to our room. The room was clean, freshly decorated and spacious. I note that the owners had recently invested... More
