The drive down to the hotel is via a long shoreline road with lovely views of the Loch and Castle Stalker. Lots of cars on the side of the road, but we managed to park in the hotel car park. We were met by Nick and shown to a lovely king size room with views over the pier and loch. We had eaten here previously and knew this place was good. On this occasion my wife was struggling to find something she wanted to eat, though it may have been possible to select from the day time menu as well as the evening one. My wife selected crab balls and mini fish cakes as the starter. The crab balls were excellent and full of flavour whilst the mini fish cakes were so small they were all crust and little inside, which took away from the flavour. I had the mussels and Inverary smoked salmon in white wine and cream, which was every bit as good as I remembered it from last time a year ago. My wife had the same as her main course and equally enjoyed it. I pushed the boat out and had a whole lobster which was devine. Service is excellent and relaxed. We took the opportunity for a stroll down the pier before returning for a cheese course.

Room Tip: King size Loch View Room

Thank you for your detailed review with excellent title of "Mussels to die for"! The mussels come straight out of Loch Linnhe and are almost always really plump and tasty. The combination of the mussels and a little Inverawe smoked salmon in a white wine and cream sauce is one of our signature dishes and extremely popular. I will hope to see you again next time you visit from Bristol. Kind regards Nick

We went as a family today for lunch, a group of 6 adults and 2 children so there was plenty of chance to sample a selection of the menu.

The scallops with Stornaway black pudding was delicious. I unfortunately did not order this, I had the salmon starter, which was nice although the hot smoked salmon was slightly dry.

The seafood platter for main was huge! The muscles had an interesting smoked flavour, slightly too strong, but overall a nice main.

We will be coming back again!

We stayed for four nights. We noticed differences depending on which manager was on duty, but overall we had a really nice stay. Because we were there for a few days we were able to reserve one of the tables in the bar with a huge picture window looking right over the jetty and out to Lismore island. We were rewarded with several stunning sunsets that had to be seen to be believed! The food was really good and the staff were friendly and mostly helpful. The midges were the only problem but that's hardly the hotel's fault! (Though see below - air con would help.)

Room Tip: The midges were particularly rampant so if you want to breathe at night you have to choose between a hot and stuffy bedroom with no midges, or getting bitten to death!

This was the most unexpected location I had visited. It was just beautiful place and so quite that I would have loved to stay for a day more but it was not possible. The people here are very good and co operative and go out of the way to help us. The breakfast was great too. Would surely recomend a friend to stay there.

The Pierhouse Hotel is almost perfect! Great position overlooking the ferry to Lismore with Morven beyond. Comfortable stylish rooms, friendly, helpful staff and superb home cooked meals and fresh, local sea food.
Only problem - apart from the distance from Oxford - the shower heads! Chosen for style and design but NOT very practical!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea view!

Thank you for your review and wonderful comments. It would be great to convert "Almost perfect" to "perfect" so will consider your suggestion with interest! We will hope to see you again sometime soon. Kind regards Nick.
