It's been twenty years since I last visited this spot. It's just as beautiful! The hotel is very well appointed and has a lovely feel. Our sea facing rooms were very comfortable.... The beds were so comfy! The staff were excellent along with the food. We tried both a la carte and bar menus which were superb. We both cannot... More

This was a return visit to the Pier House with my wife and we were not disappointed. There is always the fear that going back will not be as good as we remembered first time around, but it was! Unfortunately, we chose a weekend when the typical Scottish summer weather meant we were avoiding heavy showers. That meant we probably... More

Maintaining of standards and producing a quality product consistently well all the time in terms of accommodation, food and service is one of our greatest challenges and absolutely crucial.

We have stayed here before and it was just as good this time. We chose a room with a garden view because we did not plan on sitting in our room all day looking out at the sea, we did that from the bar and the restaurant! Excellent food and whilst there is only one vegetarian option, the chef was... More

This hotel is situated in a very lovely tranquil spot at the end of a road. It has a really nice seafood restaurant. Lovely views from the sea view windows but we had a room at the back with no view. We booked 4 nights which I think was too long as there was not much to see or places... More

Thank you for your review and we are very privileged to live in such a tranquil place. I am sorry you struggled to find a table on our terrace - usually when the sun shines it is indeed such a fantastic place to sit that the tables do become occupied very quickly. We do therefore consequently allocate tables for dinner... More

If you want piece and quite this is the place for you at the end of Port Appin around 15 miles from central Oban. Beautiful setting and lovely rooms, nice bathroom with Arran toiletries. Strange welcome fruit - an apple and an orange on a fish plate bit tired and past their best. Excellent breakfast although more choice of fruit... More

Had the good fortune to stay in this beautiful hotel on Saturday night, from the minute we walked in the front door everything was perfect. All the staff are very professional and at the same time very friendly towards their guests. We had two rooms with the cliff view. Both rooms were of a very high standard, super beds and... More

Many thanks for your super review. Attention to detail is crucial to the success of any hotel from the time of the initial call (or online communication) to the 'post-stay letter'. We endeavour to focus on the finite detail of every aspect of your stay and very much appreciate comments such as yours which recognise this level of thought. Thanks... More

We booked a table here to celebrate our anniversary. The location and views are lovely. Our meal was served by friendly and attentive staff, we did enjoy our meal although we felt the food could have been warmer. Overall a nice dining experience.

The views across the Loch are spectacular although the rooms are relatively small. This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in during our stay in Scotland, and it offers less than average value. Even though the hotel is dog-friendly there are "no dogs" signs on the entrance to the hotel and bar which is a little off-putting.
