Had a wonderful 2 nights at this establishment with my wife. The setting is superb with wonderful views. The rooms was comfortable and the food and service first class. Good selection of wine. We would have liked a sitting room or a residence lounge but still enjoyed our stay Thank you we will return

It had been many years since I last stayed at the Pierhouse. My recent trip there didn't disappoint. The location is beautiful (and easy to reach from the Central Belt), food is very good, rooms are well finished (esp. the amazingly comfy bed) and the staff friendly and eager to please. I look forward to returning soon. Billy & Mya

After my husband and I stayed at the Pierhouse for two days it was so difficult to leave. There really aren't words to describe this beautiful little inn. The views are superb, the staff just wonderful, the food is to die for. A complete package that would please all clientele. I am very pleased to recommend this inn. Thank you!

We stayed here for 3 days in a beautiful room overlooking the loch. We had booked well ahead and were delighted with the welcome we received, even though the rain was pouring down and you could hardly see anything for the mist. The room was very comfortable with lovely furnishings and a super king-size bed. We ate in the restaurant... More

Small boutique hotel overlooking the pier and Lismore Island across the water. Even a rear bedroom, practically against the hedge and little road and cliff, was a pleasure, though if we'd booked earlier, we'd have been in the highly desirable front rooms with sea view. Friendly staff, good breakfast in small dining room overlooking sea, and the restaurant, reviewed elsewhere,... More
