Travelled to this old favourite which we have been visiting for at least 30 years. It has obviously changed but still retains the essence of it's origins. It was a cold November day but we were warmly welcomed by Caroline. The log burning stoves were very relaxing and we had a pleasant bar lunch before settling in for the afternoon. It was blowing a gale and the rain was horizontal so we never left the hotel! We chatted to a couple of people in the bar, had a glass of wine and it was dinner time! The dining room is attractive and the views are spectacular. My husband had scallops and I had salmon. Both were tasty. Nikki then brought in my birthday cake and sang "happy birthday". A nice touch! The room was beautiful and very comfortable and again the outlook was lovely. Next day the wind had dropped a bit and the rain was less heavy. Breakfast was very enjoyable, as was our whole stay. Look forward to visiting again in summer!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are worth the extra money.

Louise and I popped in for lunch, both of us had the fish pie. It was the nicest thing I have ever eaten. That is no word of a lie. You know that way where you can still taste a good meal ages after you've finished it? Well I can still taste it 3 days later. Beautiful. We will be back.

Right at the end of a narrow road, this hotel is so close to the sea that the car park is on the beach! There is also a large tidal range between low and high tide. However don't panic; there's no real danger of your car being washed away! You can step out of the hotel's front door straight on to the quay for the hourly passenger ferry to Lismore island; worth the trip. Or you can do a 40-minute easy circular walk starting with the track behind the hotel.

The hotel has 12 bedrooms, six at the back and six at the front. There is a stupendous view up the loch, and of Lismore with the Morvern hills behind. There is a small but cosy residents' seating area wth a stove pumping out warmth. The restaurant is widely advertised as specialising in sea food so, if you don't like shellfish, there's a limited choice. It's also a little expensive but the food is well cooked and nicely presented. A jug of iced water is automatically provided and tea/coffee is free. The restaurant is candle-lit (as well as having ceiling lights). If, like us, you stay in late Autumn or Winter, you can't appreciate the view whilst dining; (Just remember to grab a table by the window for breakfast!) It's pitch dark outside as there's no street lights; just lights on the quay. So you are a bit limited for an after-dinner walk.

Bedroom was very confortable; the bed was slightly on the high side. Bottled water was provided in the bedroom and this was replenished daily. En suite looked new; no bath but adequate space in the shower.

As for the welcome upon arrival. Ten out of ten. A nice greeting and a personal tour showing us the restaurant, the seating area and then we were escorted to our room. Even carried our case for us. (We recently stayed in a 4-star hotel in Pitlochry where none of this applied). During our 3-night stay the staff without exception were friendly and helpful and the service almost perfect.

Room Tip: Worth paying more to have a room with a sea view.

There's other places you can stop at long before you get to Port Appin, but the drive to the end of the road is worth every mile travelled. Having stayed here a year ago, I was keen to see if I enjoyed this stay as much.

The setting is full of charm, with a pier jutting out into crystal clear water, and Lismore Island within easy reach by boat only a few hundred metres away.

The check in is efficient and friendly, and the rooms are a delight to settle into, with good wifi.

The meals...for us dinner and breakfast were a pleasure, but the view out the window makes the dining experience extra special.

The ambience in the lounge and bar area is warm and welcoming. For us this was a stop in our tour around Scotland, but I was amazed to hear how many guests had driven from England just to stay here.

If you are into exploring by foot or cycle, there's plenty to do if you plan to stay a few nights.

We enjoyed our stay just as much as last time.

We stayed at the Pierhouse in 2011 and had an excellent stay. We stayed again in October 2013 and it is at least as good as last time. Nick and Nikki were welcoming and helpful and the rest of the staff were pleased to help and chat/discus activities etc. The weather was indifferent but we managed to get some walks - but no visit to Lismore this time. If you enjoy fish/shellfish then this place is a paradise. The food is local, fresh and cooked to perfection. The location is wonderful and worth the visit just to stand on the jetty by the hotel and watch the world go by in peace and tranquility. The room was very good with large bathroom (all the fittings worked well including the shower). The only downside was the duvet which we found a little too warm (no doubt a summer quality duvet could have been provided if we'd asked!) I rate this as a really, really great place to stay.
