We spent 3 wonderful nights in this charming hotel. The views are stunning even when the weather is not the best. The hotel is well hidden but worth looking for. The warm and friendly atmosphere together with excellent seafood made our stay memorable. Next time we will book well in advance to have rooms with a view. Do not forget... More

This was our first visit to this lovely hotel and it really is a gem. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly owners and staff and we felt very welcome and spoilt during our stay of 2 nights. We even had a breathtaking sunset over Lismore Island to watch from the huge picture windows in the restaurant as we... More

We stayed on my birthday - what a treat. Wonderful location, great restaurant & we had wonderful weather. The restaurant is well known for fish including oysters & lobster and is used many local people. But we opted for their speciality Fish Pie which was lovely.

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.

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
