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.

This was my second time to visit this fantastic restaurant, the food was excellent on both occasions and the prices are very good. We chose to share a number of dishes between our party, there were six of us, and the restaurant were happy to provide individual plates for us to help ourselves from the dishes placed in the middle...

I don't often write these reviews but we have just had THE most wonderful time at The Pierhouse. I booked it as a surprise for my partners 50th Birthday. It was so special. The view of the island from our room was just spectacular and we were both in seafood heaven. Just a detail but my partner was delighted you... More

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.

Took a family bike right during our holiday here in Oban, Scotland. Got to Appin Pier and there was the most beautiful, charming, hotel restaurant. Having biked nearly 13 miles, this,was a welcome site! Staff were very quick to acknowledge our arrival, brought menus promptly, and drinks arrived quick. Our food order was approximately 25 min, but when it arrived,... More

For me, this hotel ticked all the boxes'. Scenery which changed by the minute, friendly, accommodating staff,lovely food...and great beds. I only wish we could have stayed longer.This year's Scottish summer has been disappointing. Thank goodness for time at the Pierhouse. We will be back.

Myself and my wife stayed here for one night. The hotel is very nicely decorated with nice paintings in the dining room. The room was beautiful with nice oak furniture and bed. The breakfast was excellent and the staff where very nice and friendly.

Thank you very much for your clear, succinct and extremely positive review. The art is by Alex Gourlay (portappinstudio.co.uk) whose studio is immediately to the rear of the hotel. We do our best to help him try and promote his lovely paintings which predominately feature very colourful and vibrant west coast scenes. I hope we will see you again someday.... More

We stayed two nights in the Pierhouse hotel in June 2015. The hotel is located in close proximity to Oban and Glencoe, which is ideal for exploring the surrounding areas. The hotel is situated in stunning Scottish scenery off the main roads and on the lochside. The rooms are a good size and clean. However, there are no safes in... More

I very much enjoy talking to young people and have 3 kids of my own about your age. I cannot be certain whether it was me or my... More

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
