Thanks all for another fantastic stay at The Pierhouse. Usual friendly welcome, relaxed atmosphere and fantastic seafood. Faultless from start to finish, the two hour drive is now an absolute pleasure knowing how well looked after we'll be when we arrive but the leaving is an even bigger wrench. Already looking forward to our next visit

I stayed here recently for one night and ate here for two nights at the beginning of September. The bedrooms were beautifully appointed and had modern large shower rooms. There was even a bird table outside each window so that the birds could entail the guests! The staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. For my first dinner I had a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights & loved it! I'm sure the longer you stay, the more you will love this little gem. You can choose to eat in the bar or the restaurant - both excellent for sea food - highly recommend the scallops as a starter! Guests are also able to relax in the snug by the wood... More

We spent a night at the Pierhouse Hotel last week, we were lucky to have a gorgeous weather but what a location. We enjoyed the lobster in the seafood restaurant and loved having the binoculars on hand for bird watching at breakfast. The staff in both hotel and restaurant were friendly and helpful.

Sea view rooms are best, the view is amazing and so relaxing. My husband and I liked this hotel a lot, it is very well decorated and comfortable. It is a small hotel and as we spent one night with a sea view and one night without would definitely recommend paying the extra for the sea view. The staff were... More

The location of this property is amazing. Set at the edge of a pier in Port Appin, the view is just gorgeous. The manager and staff go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable. We requested a massage. They have a masseuse on call who will do wonders on your knots. The restaurant has amazing views of the loch.

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!
