4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at The Pierhouse Hotel for two evenings and enjoyed the friendly staff, views, and the restaurant. The room was very well decorated. We also really enjoyed using the sauna after a long day. There are a few reasons that I am giving the Pierhouse a four rating instead of five. The bed was high quality, but it was... More

We stayed one night here as we had been recommended to it for the fish restaurant. It lived up to the recommendation completely. The only room left was facing the rocks but this wasn't a problem as there are bird feeders to watch. The rain made the seaview miserable any way! The rooms are clean and modern with everything you... More

Right on the waterfront of Loch LInnhe and the pier where the seafood is landed , this small hotel will not disappoint .It is comfortably modernised with friendly staff and fully deserves its reputation for seafood . Try the lobster .

We dropped in on our way home and managed to get a table, all four of us had something different but each of us devoured the magnificent meal. I had smoked mussels, a new delicacy for me but one that topped the list of foodstuffs that I have ever eaten.

I booked this based on some friend's recommendations and reviews from other TripAdvisor reviewers. We were not disappointed, from the very first refreshing beer in front of the hotel to dinner in the restaurant. Staff very obliging and helpful. Our room had a very comfortable bed and had simple, modern furnishings. Go for the loch view room, the garden view... More

Our usual first stop off on our West Coast trip, but just for lunch on this occasion. The food never fails to disappoint and the Oysters Kilpatrick have become a firm favourite. Friendly attentive staff, nice location and some of the finest seafood on the West Coast. See you next year.

Fantastic place to get away from it all. Stunning views, amazingly good and locally sourced seafood. Very welcoming and comfortable hotel. Appin is a quiet and hidden gem. Seabirds diving,fishing boats and ferries to watch.

Hidden away in this small part of Scotland but the food is generally excellent. Breakfast inc the Haggis is worth a try (and black pudding). For dinner I had the lobster which was OK but I had hoped for better given the price. If you stay try and get a room with a sea view. The rooms are a little... More

Thank you for your review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and particularly your breakfast. I am sorry your lobster did not quite hit the spot because usually we have rave reviews about them. Nonetheless thank you for your feedback which is much appreciated. Kind regards Nick More

12 of us stayed here on our way from Isle of Skye to Tarbert and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. The rooms were comfortable, and we had a lovely view of the loch. We enjoyed having drinks outside on the patio, as well as inside in the bar. We all enjoyed our dinners. I had the lobster, which was... More

Just returned from a 5 day stay. The food was lovely. The location is great. We went there to kayak from the shore - the private car park on the edge of the loch made this possible. We plan to return with elderly parents as the views from the front-facing bedrooms and restaurants are amazing. Being at the end of... More

Thank you so much for your really nice review and we are delighted you enjoyed your stay! As you have discovered we are perfectly located for kayaking and other water based activities added to by the entertainment of the constant comings and goings of boats off our pier. It is great too hear you wish to return with your parents... More
