“Another Great Week”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

Spent another great week at Rowanlea in June being the third time, just as we remembered it great location and views, rooms very spacious with everything you need and spotlessly clean, breakfast is amazing with every thing you could thing of and more. Gill goes out of her way to make you feel at home and can't do another for you great hostess. Looking forward to the next time

This is a small, peacful B&B, made excellent by Gill, who is a charming hostess. She made us feel instantly at home, fed us amazing breakfasts, and gave us lots of ideas for things to do around town.
Thanks for a great stay!

Rowanlea is in a lovely location just a few minutes drive from the centre of Pitlochry, near the golf course. The room was incredibly spacious, with a huge 6ft bed (which was very comfortable) sofa, tv and our bathroom had a bath/shower combination with very nice toiletries - both rooms were also spotlessly clean. Outside there was nice little garden, with a table you could sit at to enjoy the weather. Breakfast was brilliant - a selection of yoghurts, cereal, and orange juice for the continental breakfast and the option of anything cooked - including porridge. Needless to say, we both left breakfast each morning incredibly well fed! The owner, Gill, was so friendly and helpful in making suggestions of things to see and places to eat - she made us feel very welcome. We stayed for 2 nights at the end of June and paid £112 altogether, which is an incredible value high season price for such a wonderful place.
Overall, I couldn't fault the stay at all and when we visit Pitlochry again we wouldn't stay anywhere but here!

Overall a good B and B. position excellent and rooms clean and well appointed. Breakfast very good.
Only problem we found was the design of the room.
B and B has two letting rooms at the back of the house ground level facing the garden. No windows only a large double glazed patio door. Only way to ventilate in hot weather is to leave the door open (All night) if necessary.Guests in the next door room walk past your door and as it has no net/voile covering they get a full view of anything going on in the room. The only option is to pull the heavy curtains

Room Tip: Try to get the walker room- no one can walk past

This was our second week-long visit and I can't praise Rowanlea enough. The self-contained accommodation means you have the privacy of a hotel room with the personal attention of a B&B. The room is huge with a sofa, very generous storage and a wonderfully comfortable 6ft bed. The enormous bathroom is well equipped with toiletries and the thick fluffy towels are changed every day. There is a fabulous view through the patio doors to the hills beyond and you can sit outside on the patio furniture. Jilly provides a great breakfast (the porridge is excellent) and she always goes the extra mile to make us welcome and ensure our stay is truly memorable. It is a pleasant stroll to the amenities of Pitlochry and close to the golf course, which has a good restaurant. Can't wait for our next visit.

This was our third visit to Rowanlea within 12 months. As usual, our hostess Gill was very welcoming and friendly. The location is brilliant and the views to the distant hills are stunning.The room was spacious and spotlessly clean while the bathroom/shower had an excellent supply of toiletries. The full Scottish breakfasts were very filling. All in all, it was a very relaxing break in an excellent location. If you are staying there and get a clear night, make sure you take a look at the sky - loads of stars and no light pollution.

Room Tip: The property has 2 bedrooms and both have great views

We are a retired couple who went to Rowan Lea for 10 days.
The owner was very welcoming and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. Everything at the hotel was spotlessly clean. The location was great. The whole holiday was very relaxing. The cooked breakfast was excellent. We would highly recommend.
