Beautiful setting, lovely hotel and rooms, great bar and wine list, fantastic menu/food particularly seafood! Nice walks around if feeling energetic- otherwise lovely to sit on the rocky beach and listen to the waves.... Breakfast was tasty too. Very welcoming helpful staff- only sorry there for just one night!

This hotel is situated on the lochside so there is a magnificent view from the restaurant and most of the bedrooms. All the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. The bedrooms are reasonably spacious with large comfortable beds. We had dinner twice in the restaurant which offered romantic views of the loch at sunset. The food was excellent and if... More

We had a wonderful visit to the Pierhouse in Port Appin. The bedrooms were comfortable and beautifully furnished and the bar and restaurant looked out over an amazing view. Delicious food and friendly service made our visit a memorable one. A peaceful and beautiful setting makes this a place to return to again and again.

2nd time I've stopped here and it certainly sets the bar high for the quality of its location, the accommodation, It's food and the customer service, all of which are exemplary. While sea front isn't a Sandy Beach it is an accessible sea front. If you need a few days to chill out and wind down then this is the... More

I have to rate everything about our 2 night stay as first class. The sea view from our room (12) was fantastic, the food and service at dinner both nights was excellent and breakfast is well worth getting out the extremely comfy beds for. Hope it won't be long until we stay again.

We really can't fault the Pier house. Wonderful location and views, great service from Nikki and team and the seafood was so fresh. Only complaint is my wife spent a lot of our meal time outside taking photos of the amazing sunset.

We spent two nights in delightful room 2 with our dog. It was a well proportioned room, with fine views across the water to the island of Lismore. Very comfortable furnishings, welcoming and friendly staff and, best of all, an absolutely excellent fish restaurant. Although the hotel wasn't cheap, we thought the restaurant was very well priced. The location is... More

My wife and I stayed at the Pierhouse Hotel for one night only. Our friends, who were staying near, by joined us for dinner and an excellent breakfast. The weather was foul but the welcome was warm, the evening meal exceptional and the accommodation wonderfully cosy. This might well become our secret little bolt hole or it would have been... More

Jaw dropping location, everything was perfect. We loved our sea view room (pay the extra, you won't regret it). The restaurant was great. Seafood focus on the menu but there were other options available. Beautifully decorated and presented hotel. We will be back.
