You might have spotted some wonderful coverage in the press this week about the owner of The Pierhouse Hotel, Gordon Campbell Gray who purchased the hotel in October 2018 and has just launched The Wee Hotel Company, a new hotel collection where small is beautiful.
We are all extremely excited for the investment which will be brought to the hotel throughout this year and beyond, and can assure our regular guests that any changes and improvements will be very subtle and gentle, as we build on The Pierhouse's already fantastic reputation.
At The Wee Hotel Company's launch, Gordon described what appealed to him about The Pierhouse and what prompted him to acquire the hotel:
"First of all, it was my local, and I used to go there all the time. I love langoustine and I used to go and have langoustine every week, if not twice a week, and the setting looking over Lismore is stunning. One day the owners just said to me: “we are thinking maybe it is time after 12 years to spend more time with our kids in the south. Do you know anyone who might interested?”
“I said: “maybe me”. And they said: “that is what we hoped you’d say,” and I just bought it. It was that simple. I bought it because it is very authentic. It has all the best of Scottish tourism – people coming in bikes and kayaks, walking and climbing and coming in on boats. It is a really Scottish hotel with locals and I just love it. It is very honest.”
