    The first impression as you enter is the lightness and cleanliness of it. As you enter, to your right is a very well-equipped kitchen area which includes everything you might (or might not) need including microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher & washing machine, and there is a window that looks right down the Holy Loch to the Firth of Clyde. Round to the left is the dining area, the steps up to the sitting room and ahead the stairs to the one bedroom and shower / toilet. The sitting room is spacious with comfortable seating and all ‘mod-cons’ – there is a TV and DVD player - and free Wi-Fi too. This was our second visit to Pier Cottage, we liked it so much when we came before and, as last time, we were delighted to find milk in the fridge and tea / coffee and biscuits ready and waiting for use on arrival, a very welcome touch after a drive of nearly 200 miles. Everything you need is here, towels and bedding all provided, as are simple necessities of self-catering like washing-up liquid, tea towels & kitchen roll; also, iron and ironing board - though we couldn’t find a hairdryer. If you get some sunshine, there is a delightful little spot just around the end of the cottage on the pier where there is a table & two chairs to relax on, have a ‘wee dram’, watch the birds fly by and listen to the water lapping at the pier – gorgeous! The ONLY down that we found is lack of hanging places for wet waterproofs etc – and, being the west coast, this can be a problem – we ended up putting soggy clothes in the sink / draining board whilst we showered then hanging them on the clothes horse in the shower to drip!

    We had a lovely time despite the rain and the dog trying to eat a jellyfish!! My only comment, and I appreciate people could take advantage, as it was so wet it would have been nice to to get some of our clothes completely dry over night. Having said all that the cottage was perfect for us and did everything we wanted it to do. The area is lovely, it was a shame we only had the odd moment when we could benefit from the lovely views. A good vet in Dunoon and the cinema is very quaint. Thank you, Jean.

    The cottage was beautiful the only thing which would have made it even more amazing is place to sit and view the loch outside and it was a shame the restaurant across the road had shut down.

    Fantastic quality and refurb awesome but it was like being in a prison Windows so small only real view was from a 1m x 700 MM window in top floor bedroom Also the staircase is a risk to all with a bathroom door open outwards to the staircase and elderly need to be advised on risk of falling on slippery stair Also did think we might get some fresh towels after 3-4 days Pity as this was such good quality accomodation

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are glad you enjoyed you stay with us, to answer your points we do not normally provide clean towels during your weeks stay. However if you have any requests we are only to happy to help, we do provide a bath mat to hopefully prevent the floors becoming wet. With regards to the windows, planning restrictions have prevented us from adding extra windows to what was originally a ticket office.

    This cottage did not have a welcoming atmosphere , it was far too sterile. The furniture is uncomfortable and there is no views to look at as the windows are next to useless. It was the worst holiday home we have ever stayed in. The only plus point was the cleanliness.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with our holiday cottage. We have kept the interior decoration fairly minimalist as most of our guests seem to prefer this style. With regards to the lack of views from the windows, this is explained by the fact the building is a 150 year old ex ticket office and a B listed conservation property within the Argyll Forest Park and no permission can be granted to add any windows that would show the beauty of the area. Once again sorry to disappoint you.

    This is a stylish cottage - something a bit different. We chose the location because we liked the look of the cottage but the location exceeded our expectations. Great for dog walking. Lovely scenic drives for longer outings. Some have expressed disappointment that there is only one smallish window downstairs from which you get a view of the loch (the bedroom does have a good loch view) but we didn't mind that - the glimpse from the kitchen window was lovely and it was nice to hunker down in the lounge in the evening. Light and bright with interesting artwork adding to the ambience.

    Had a fantastic time at Pier Cottage. What a stunningly beautiful place to stay. Cottage very very comfortable, has everything you could want and more, and the little welcome package of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits a lovely touch. The wood burning fire was put to good use, the cottage warms up quickly enough with the central heating but the wood burning fire is just the icing on the cake. Make sure you take care on the stairs which are very steep, and can be slippy, I slipped from about halfway down and ended up with a bruise the size of a dinnerplate on my thigh! Plenty of DVDs, books and games to keep you occupied. Lots to do in the local area, highly recommend Kilmun Arboretum for a short walk, and Pucks Glen and Benmore Botanic Gardens for a longer, more strenuous walk a 10 minute drive away. Dunoon is a short drive away, and has everything you could want should you need more supplies, as does the garage at the end of the road. Also highly recommend Invereray Jail for a couple of hours fun indoors for the rainy days, there are shops, pubs and cafes in the town also. Will definitely be back at some time! :)
