Stayed here many times over the years and different ownerships . So glad to see that the standards and quality have not only been maintained , but improved. Perfect waterside location complemented with an excellent seafood biased menu- just as it should be. Oh we'll be back!

We stay here religiously every year on the annual trip up to thurso. The staff are always second to none and the food is always unrivaled and unmatched. Please see my pictures. But the one thing which is remarkable is the stunning sunset

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are delighted you feel 'the staff are second to none' and the 'food unrivaled and unmatched'. These are 2 of the main areas of our establishment at which we work extremely hard trying to 'reach perfection'. The sunsets are , as you say, 'remarkable', but sadly this is one area we... More

This small, intimate hotel and restaurant has it all - incredible views across Loch Linnhe, friendly personal service, cozy bar, and the best seafood around. It is not a coincidence that it received three Scottish Hotel awards in 2014. It is my favorite small hotel/restaurant in Scotland.

On the recommendation of a friend we arranged to stay overnight and have dinner. As we were in transit we weren't able to do the surrounding area justice and we were a little bit unlucky with the weather but that's a risk you take with Scotland. We will definitely return with the aim of visiting Lismore and if we can... More

I cannot say enough about the wonderful warmth, hospitality and service of the Pierhouse Hotel staff. From Caroline at the front desk, for which no request was too difficult, to all the restaurant staff, they could not have made us feel more welcome. And the food! Incredible!! Don't miss any of the three fabulous seafood platters. Without a doubt, we'll... More

This location is opposite isle of lismore and is so quiet on the edge of the loch. Room slightly disappointing, in that aside from large comfy bed, the shower was weak and I think I expected more for my money. We ate in the restaurant in evening and food very good and is a must if staying over.

Thank you for your review and I very glad to read that you liked the large, comfy bed and that the food was very good. I was however disappointed to see that you say the shower was weak because this is extremely unusual and normally the 'shower' comments are completely the opposite. In fact, like 'Niagara Falls' is not unusual... More

Decided to take my wife here for a special birthday. I wanted it to be special and special it was. Fantastic location, beautiful bedroom and great food. The a la carte menu is limited, there are only two non sea food mains, but all the dishes we had for our two dinners there were beautifully cooked and presented. Staff were... More

During our holiday we went to this nice hotel/restaurant before we took the ferry to visit Lismore to have lunch. The service was very quick and good and the food reasonably priced and very tasty!
